Free advertising – what can you lose?
Free advertising – sounds too good to be true? we don’t think it is, it’s a great opportunity! Why not join our directory and enable the public to find you and what you have to offer.
You may have a website, a Facebook page and a Twitter feed. Brilliant, you can use your listing page to attract people who don’t use these social media pages.
Social media linking
If you keep your social media pages up to date, use your wcigt.com listing to steer people to these pages to see what’s on at your venue. We’ve made it easy to link to Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linkedin, Pinterest, Youtube, Foursquare, Instagram, Trip Advisor and Soundcloud.
Upload images, videos and documents
Load up your favourite images, link up your Youtube videos of last week’s gig, pop in a menu or two, a special offer, anything you like. Get fully linked and loaded, all in one place.
Don’t have a website! – this is a simple alternative
For those who don’t have Facebook, Twitter or a website, this solves that, with no cost and it’s so easy to set up.
Not everyone uses social media or has a website, if that’s you, here’s an opportunity to be seen and promote your pub, club, hotel, wine bar or sports club, and it’s entertainment now.
The more you add the better for everyone
When you create your listing, add and upload as much as you can then we all benefit. Google and the like love links, great interesting copy and videos. The more you add, the more success you stand to gain.
Tell us what you think
Have a look, sign up and have a play. We are always happy to help if you get stuck.
It may look complicated and under the surface it is, but we have tried to make it as simple as possible for the public to use.
Not only is it simple for the listing owner, it’s simple to use and flexible for the browsing public too.
If you think we’re wrong, or have missed a trick, tell us. We love constructive criticism and suggestions.
Go on sign up – what have you got to lose?
If you like it tell your mates, tell your performers – get them involved too.
There is no catch! Any legitimate venue or entertainment act can have a free listing.
Free Entertainer sign up
There are several ways to do this. As an entertainer, band etc you can have a free listing. All you have to do is click FREE BAND SIGN UP in the main menu or click this link CLICK and fill in a few details.
Free Venue sign up
As a venue it is similar. Click the FREE VENUE SIGN UP and you will see the top choice is free, or CLICK and fill in a few details.
The obvious answer is yes of course it is. It’s free it must be worth it.
A free venue listing gives you the opportunity to promote your venue and all the great things you offer visitors.
You can link your website address, Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages.
All of these things help your listing climb the rankings on search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
The more interesting information that is available the better these search engines like it.
What is the benefit of choosing a paid listing.
Well it’s the events – It’s all about events.
Creating events mean you will be searched on the home page search options. This means you are showing in the results lists for a date search.
This is the main focus of the site to promote events and make them easy to find – what you want – where you want it – when you want it.
We think it’s a small price to pay – less that the price of a pint per week!
Promote your live music and entertainment – as a performer
It’s easy to register your band or venue. There is no hidden agenda, we are not after your details for any reason other than to make contact if we have to.
You don’t have to have gigs all lined up to promote, you can create a listing with all of your details and all the links to your Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and more.
You may be looking for gigs, well clients will find you if you have a listing.
You will still be indexed by Google and the more you put in the more they reward your effort by ranking you higher.
For performers you get a listing which is a good web presence and you can promote live music for free. We are like minded musicians, so we know what it’s like to find gigs to see, get gigs and perform too. You’ve heard this before but ‘we’re all in this together’.
Try it, it doesn’t have to be perfect in the beginning, you can add, subtract or edit your information at any time, no waiting for us to approve it. When you submit it, it goes live.
We will of course expect you to be respectful of the freedom we give of your content and will suspend and ask you to adjust if it comes to our attention of it being unsuitable.

Entertainers get free promotion
It has been our intention from the outset to give the performers an opportunity to have free promotion for yourselves and your gigs.
Why is wcigt.com different from the others
We feel we are different, not because to entertainers we are free, but because we are not just for music, we are a bit more general which attracts a wider audience to search for entertainment – more opportunity to be noticed!
We are though fundamentally about entertainment in small venues – not Wembley or big expensive venues with thousands of people in the audience. There are bigger sites for that and their clients are different to ours.
We are about the small venues, pubs, clubs, bars, you know the sort of thing we mean.
When researching before the project started it was clear that we could not find what we wanted. We wanted stuff to do within a short radius of home, a list of pubs etc with live music, a quiz etc on the date we entered. What we got was what we didn’t want, big expensive probably sold out gigs miles away.
Local events nationally
Pretty well sums up what we are trying to achieve. Proper local stuff, a majority for free or a few quid, not a divert to a ticket agency.
There are a lot of places that do this but we feel we are different enough to the others.
It’s easy to register and become a member
Don’t panic! we are not the big boys just after your email address, we are like minded normal music fans and performers who thought this may appeal to others. Maybe a bit of a pub quiz or sports TV in the pub types. Not too blokey we hope!
Registering is simple, we need an email and a base location and postcode for everything to work in the searches. Obviously the more detail you add the better. You can go from registering to creating a listing within seconds. We do not need to make approvals, but if you abuse the site we will dump you!
It’s very easy to create a listing – we call it an owner listing on the main pages because this is the page that owns all of the events you promote.
You can add images, videos, documents, classified adds and more. All for free.
Try it – the more that register and add good content and gigs the better it is for all.
