Marketing Charities & Community Organisations
When Bartley Marketing took over the Lymington.com website about all things Lymington, it was inevitable that “Community” would become a big part of our lives. Checking the “What’s On” calendar is one of the key drivers of local traffic to our website; a great many local events and activities are those which are organised by local organisations for the benefit of the community, sometimes to fundraise for a local charity as well. In turn, part of our role as custodians of this important information hub is to provide a service to our community.
All community organisations are encouraged to add their events free of charge to Lymington.com’s What’s On events calendar, from where we promote events weekly in our email newsletter and schedule for social media promotion via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We have also embraced a number of local organisations in a more individualised way – we help on an ongoing basis to promote the great work they do.
If you’re a community organisation feel free to add events to the Lymington.com What’s On events calendar in the first instance, and talk to us if you’re organising something special, we may be able to help by publishing a promotional article or other news on the website too.
LYMINGTON DEMENTIA ACTION GROUP
The Lymington Dementia Action Group (LDAG) exists primarily to spread awareness of the small changes in behaviour each and every one of us can make to help to make the lives of people with dementia better for longer. It also organises events and activities to support people with dementia and their carers and provides signage for people who need information.
Bartley Marketing hosts a ‘mini’ website for LDAG within the main website of Lymington.com, which means that LDAG can also benefit from the wide reach of the Lymington.com communications channels to promote events and major news, and so bring more people in to take dementia awareness courses and follow LDAG’s own channels where more “in depth” dementia related news and information is shared.
