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.
Mid January is when we hope our rebuild will be up and running
What started as a bit of upgrading has turned into a major rebuild. As we started to go through the elements to improve it became obvious that we needed to completely re-organise the way things worked from a public perspective.
This has taken a few more months than anticipated as the coding had to be right as this is the third time of starting again. Surprisingly we still get the impression that every change we have made makes the site better than it would have been if we had not made the changes.
We hope when it finally goes online you will agree and people from both sides, users and advertising members, will enjoy being part of our dream.
The other massive decision has been to make advertising your bands, performances and venues FREE.
How can you afford not to join us!
We are upgrading and improving the usability to the layout of our site. We are keeping it running while this takes place, so it may not seem to be perfect working order.
We hope to finish in November so please come back and look then.
Support local live music in pubs clubs and bars
Earlier this year the government issued new guideline information on whether you need approval to put on certain types of regulated entertainment.
I have spoken to a few people and none new about this.
Is it saying what I think in that if you run a pub, club etc you only need an entertainment licence if you want to run later than 11pm or have an audience of more than 500.
Why is this information about new music licence rules kept so quiet?
Does anyone else know about this?
Is it saying what I think or is there small print somewhere else that says something different.
Share it far and wide!
Keep music live and local.

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!
