Do you run recreational classes?
Perhaps you represent a small business or local community group with limited marketing funds?
Do you struggle to target, advertise and promote your classes in a cost effective way that gets the information in front of the right people?
We’ve been where you are now, and we know first-hand the frustrations and potential costs of marketing the classes you teach, which is why we created Love Your Leisure.
We offer a choice of affordable advertising packages ranging from free listings to just £10 a month.
Why we are different
You want your classes to be full and profitable without marketing and advertising taking up too much of your precious time. I know, I’ve been there.
If you’ve wasted money on advertising in the past, or feel like a small fish in a big pond, Love Your Leisure can help. As well as listing your classes, we can help you shout about how fabulous they are and get you in front of people who are already looking for something to do locally.

Choose from our affordable advertising packages ranging from free listings to just £10 a month.
This means that you can try out our effective and low-cost marketing for your classes, and then, after a few months if you decide that our website and social media promotion of your classes isn’t for you then that’s fine. We won’t take it personally, and you can just cancel your listing and we will delete your class details.
