WE DON’T CHARGE FEES OR COMMISSION TO PROMOTE YOUR OFFERS AND PROMOTIONS AT BRIGHTIDEAS365.COM…
There are a number of ways in which businesses can promote deals, offers, and promotions, on Brightideas365.com. These are all completely free of charge (except for sponsorship). However, just because promotion on Brightideas365 is free, doesn’t mean we don’t do all we can to make it effective.
Find out at a glance what free promotional services your business is eligible for here.
POSITIVE NEWS ITEMS AND PRESS RELEASES
If you have an uplifting news story, then let us know about it. This must be a genuine news item and not the promotion of a product or service (new or otherwise). It must be factual and not use emotive language, for example a beach can be described as ‘wide and sandy,’ but not ‘sun drenched’, a car may be described as ‘innovative’ (as long as it is), but not ‘handling like a dream’.
The name of your company can be mentioned, but not repeatedly. A ‘source’ credit can be provided. We retain the right to reject or edit any material submitted. Find out how to submit a news item here.
We may not be the only website that offers discounts to entice customers, but what makes us different is that we don’t charge a penny (no fees or commission) to promote your deals on our site. This could be a discount, multibuy, free gift, or anything that will benefit would be customers and drive sales for your business.
Our service is open to local and national businesses. It can be in the form of a code that can be used when purchasing or booking online, or a printed or mobile device voucher for in-store use (this must be in ‘pdf’ form for printed downloads). Find out how to upload offers here.
SHARE CODE LOCATIONS
If you display our downloadable share giveaway code poster within your premises (where it can be seen by the public during normal opening hours, but not when closed), this location will then automatically be entitled to a free entry into our ‘where to find your share code’ listing. This takes the form of a map/list entry (along with hyperlink). Just display the poster and let us know about it. Find out how to take part here.
Art, craft, and specialist retailers can also take a free online stall in one of our speciality markets. This allows even the smallest specialist to promote to customers across the UK. Find out how here.
We are always looking for interesting new features at Brightideas365, so we are happy to publish articles about your company, it’s products, it’s founder, etc.
These can include a ‘Feature supplied by’ credit, a logo, and/or a hyperlink. Again there is no limit to how many can be run. Featured subjects may include:
- The history of your company or brand.
- The history of your product.
- Professional advice and information (including financial and legal).
- A profile of your founder.
- A day in the life of a staff member.
- A charity project you support.
The following are excluded:
- Advertising of a product or service.
- Features that may worry, offend, or upset our subscribers.
Editorial content must not be ‘advertising’ copy. It must be factual and not use emotive language, for example a beach can be described as ‘wide and sandy,’ but not ‘sun drenched’, a car may be described as ‘innovative’ (as long as it is), but not ‘handling like a dream’. Content may be edited of rejected where the above is contravened.
A good rule of thumb is to ask what is the reader getting? If you are providing genuine information, advice, or entertainment, then we will happily run your feature. Branding cannot be included in the feature itself, nor can promotional taglines. These along with a logo, hyperlink, and/or contact details, can however be included in the ‘Feature supplied by’ message at the foot of the feature.
We retain the right to reject or edit any feature.
BrightIdea365 donates all profits to good causes, so as a partner or supporter your business will be supporting charities, community groups, and local services (without spending any money!).
