What is on in Eastbourne | Promoting events with thebestof

If you are an event organiser, I am sure you have lots of things to worry about and the promotion of your event is the least exciting aspect of all you need to do.

More likely you would rather focus on making the event go according to plan and we all know that is a rare and beautiful thing but easier said than done.

That is where thebestof Eastbourne can help… that is if you want more people to be aware of your events in Eastbourne.

As event organisers ourselves we know just how many options are out there to “promote your event” and many just add their event to Facebook in the hopes all will see it.

If you have already done this like us, you will have a love hate relationship with the “interested” option. This is so frustrating because you have no idea if these people are interested in attending or just watching what you are up to…

Over the past 8 years we have been growing our reputation as the place to go for local events! Not only do we rank well on search engines for "What's on in Eastbourne" and "Events in Eastbourne" - users of our events section have been kind enough to leave us reviews, below are some from event organisers in Eastbourne.

David Ruddle really helped understand how to use the site to leverage more fans to our events. Since then we have been busy using this serve speedway events at the Arlington Stadium. Thanks very much thebestof Eastbourne! #UpTheEagles #ArlingtonArmy

Just wanted to say that there were some brilliant ideas for kids during the school summer holidays on The Best Of Eastbourne which were not listed anywhere else, unusual things like an animation studio which had Open Days and is a charity, as well as being on our doorstep. Will definitely look here first in future & have told other parents to do the same :)

Highly recommend. Amazingly prompt and friendly service and assistance. The uptake for our Networking Meetings promoted by David (thebestof Eastbourne) increased dramatically. Thank you so much. Action in rural Sussex.

I run a networking group for women in business and have just added my meetings to the site. What a great way to advertise and so simple too! Love a bit of community sharing and caring. Thanks guys for your support!

What types of event can I promote?

It has always been free to promote community, charity or sports on thebestof.

If you are a commercial event – we can help you for as little as a £1 per day!

Please do contact us about our new Promoter Support – this promotion package is perfect for regular event organisers or venues – contact us for details.

To get started make sure you have registered a profile with thebestof Eastbourne and have images sized correctly. File must be JPG or PNG. The ideal image size for the event is 2304px x 1728px buy the minimum image size is 800px x 600px should need to use a smaller image.

If you are in any doubt about the size of your image, please leave it blank and add it after you have submitted the event details. This will reduce the chance your event information will be lost in the process of adding it.

When your event has been approved and is on display in our popular events section it could be selected to be included in our e-newsletter or even shared on via our social media of which our Twitter following is around 15,000 followers at present.
