Frequently Asked Questions (if you run a class)
How much does it cost to advertise on Love Your Leisure?
To make advertising your class as simple and cost effective as possible, we offer three different advertising packages. There’s a free listing option for your classes. We also have a pay monthly Premium package for £5 per month, and a Pro package for £10 per month.
If you teach multiple classes then our Multi-Pro package is the perfect solution for you at just £15 per month.
You can see what these fantastic packages include here. If you have any questions about which would be the best package for you, please contact us to find out more. All our listings are flexible, and you can cancel or upgrade at any time.
How long does it take for my classes to show once I have listed them?
It takes just 24 hours for your listing to go live. There’s only this short delay so that we can check you’ve supplied all the information we need and that everything is OK.
What happens if any of my class details change or I want to amend my listing?
The great thing about having a listing with Love Your Leisure is that you can log in to update it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year. This means it’s quick and easy to keep people up-to-date with when and where your classes are taking place.
Simply log in, amend your listing and we’ll send you a message within 24 hours verifying that the changes have gone live.
How can I make my classes stand out?
Although our free listings cover all the essential information potential class attendees need to know, our Premium package enables you to add your web address, social media links, your logo and class description to your listing. Our Pro and Multi-Pro packages really go the extra mile, ensuring that your class is shared on all our social media platforms, and on our newsletter and/or blog. With a Pro or Multi-Pro listing you can add photos and video content, plus you’re eligible to be entered into the Love Your Leisure Awards.
Another fantastic feature of Pro and Multi-Pro listings is that your class attendees can rate and review your classes. These ratings show up in the search results, making people more likely to click on your class over those that haven’t been reviewed.
To stand out even further, you can contact us for information about showcasing your class in a featured ad for a specific period of time. This is a brilliant way of raising the profile of a new class or when you want to be found.
Why should I advertise with you?
To the best of our knowledge, Love Your Leisure is the only website in the UK dedicated to promoting recreational classes. The people who visit the website are people who are actively searching for classes. It’s free and easy for them to search, which is a great reason for them to keep coming back to find out what’s happening locally.
We understand how frustrating and time consuming advertising your classes can be and that your budget is probably pretty tight. We’ve been where you are and we know what it takes to get the word out. We’re really active on social media, which is a fantastic way of telling people about your classes. Our weekly blog and e-zines are great for raising the profile of classes too.
Plus, we pay forward our work by donating 10% of our annual profits to our charitable foundation, Educate the World.
