Lymington.com champions and promotes everything it can about Lymington and the New Forest. We strive to keep the Lymington.com channel (website, social media and email newslette) a positive environment, promoting the great things about Lymington and the New Forest, unlike other media which often sensationalises the negatives.

How to list an Event on Lymington.com

Guidance notes to help you set up your event/s 

Create and manage your own event listings
You can now set up and manage event listings yourself – and you can edit them too once they are published.

To set up your event listing/s you will need first to register yourself by creating an account.

Once you have registered you will be able to log in to your account whenever you like, using your username and password. You can then edit your event listing.

  • Once you’ve entered the event details we’ll check and publish
  • Charity/community events are free to advertise in this way; if it’s a commercial event we’ll get in touch with you to discuss a contribution!
  • Please make sure you include full address including postcode, for the event – this generates the location map
  • Please include date and start time of event. (Click on calendar icon, then to add the start time click on the numbers themselves - you can select the time more precisely that way rather than using the arrows.)
  • Please include as much details as you like under “full description” in fact the more the merrier, the more informative the better
  • If it’s an event like a Lymington Players production which is on for a few days, we’ll have to publish the second and subsequent days at the back end – so please just include the details in the full description eg Tuesday to Saturday.

Managing your event listing/s

Using your login and password you can go back in to your listing/s at any time to make changes of any kind within the listing plan you have chosen.
We hope you find these notes helpful!
Please let us know if there are points which we haven’t covered or which need further explanation, or if things don’t work as you expected – email us in the first instance This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Marketing your business locally

Getting your business noticed in your local market can be harder than you thought it would be. Businesses local to the New Forest, Lymington and surrounding areas can benefit enormously from Bartley Marketing’s unique online local media channel, Lymington.com.

Lymington.com is an online hub for both the local community and visitors to the area. It provides local news and information; what’s on and things to do; where to stay, eat and drink; jobs vacancies; business reviews and articles of local interest.  

A powerful local directory with pulling power

The Lymington.com website incorporating its business directory was originally built 12 years ago. It has been redeveloped on an ongoing basis to keep up with advances in technology and design and to provide quality content and relevant, up to date information, all presented to the user in an attractive and user friendly way which encourages return visits and frequent reference. 

The directory section showcases member businesses via individual business web pages which include key information, links and add valuable third party endorsement. Most importantly, from Google’s point of view Lymington.com is a long established, trusted site and the continuing month-on-month and year-on-year increase in site visits and time on site reflects this.

It works!

Lymington.com has provided huge support with the marketing of my new business. As well as providing expertise that has helped hone my social media and marketing generally, Lymington.com has boosted my online reach. Whenever they post one of my blogs there is a noticeable improvement in take-up of events and services. Locals read their newsletter and whenever we are included it boosts us, and our presence on the Lymington.com website is how many people have found us. The Natural Health Hub would not be where it is today without the help of Jane and Tanya, who are approachable and generous with their advice.” - Sue Leach, Natural Health Hub, August 2017

Advertising, promotion & sponsorship options

Business Membership

With the wide scope it offers, a Business Page in the Lymington.com directory provides a webpage for your business if you do not have a website*, or a stand-alone local presence if your business is part of a national chain which limits the amount of local information you can include and/or your control over it. And if you already have a website and/or your business is not based in Lymington itself, the pulling power of your Business Page from searches which include the word ‘Lymington’ will provide an additional source of enquiries for you.

Your Business Page will display in one business category and includes:

  • A succinct encapsulation of your business, what it offers to whom and why it’s good! This is written in such a way as to appeal in user-friendly language to the visitor and also to attract the search engines
  • Meta title and description also to help the search engines
  • Your logo, images, contact details - and a Google map
  • Monitored business review facility. Encourage your customers to leave local reviews on your page, it’s not the same as Trip Advisor - we can monitor reviews and ensure that unwarranted negative comments are not published
  • All your social media links, plus as relevant it can include links within the description field to your Trip Advisor, Brand New Forest and New Forest Marque listings, as well as to any YouTube posts you wish to highlight
  • Likewise if you have a Google SeeInside Virtual Tour for your business this link can be included as well (for more about this fantastic way to showcase your business AND improve your Google search ranking see “Additional Marketing Services” on page 9)
  • If you already showcase your business in other online directories and membership groups your page can include links to these, and thus drive visitors to these other sites as well as to your website, which will add to your overall business proposition and its online pulling power
  • The detailed description is your opportunity to really encapsulate the local benefits of what your business offers, to whom and why it’s good. This can be especially useful if your business is part of a national chain or larger enterprise which can mean the main local benefits are not easy to find on your website. According to your wishes, we will either copywrite or edit to ensure the detailed description really sings the benefits of your business
  • Further relevant links can also be added (e.g. to other articles both on Lymington.com and on other sites)
  • After initial set up, you have the ability and flexibility to login and edit your Business Page at any time

*Please note that Bartley Marketing also provides websites – see “Additional Marketing Services” below.

Featured Membership

This level of membership is recommended for sole traders and smaller businesses that require some active promotion via our media channels. It includes your Business Page (as per Business Membership) which includes all the essential information about your business together with the compelling proposition to your target customers, plus active promotion as part of our regular promotion of each business category in turn.

Featured Membership includes:

  • Your Business Page is ‘featured’ near the top of each of the category pages within the Lymington.com directory which are relevant to the business
  • Your Business Page will be featured in our regular promotion of each business category via our weekly newsletter and all our social media
  • We will feature your business in general articles on Lymington.com about subjects which are relevant to your business
  • If you take the opportunity to add your events to the Lymington.com Events Calendar, we will promote them in our weekly newsletter in the upcoming events section and via social media in our regular events calendar reminders. You can add as much detail as you wish to events, including a recap of the main benefits and messages you wish to communicate about your business
  • If you are recruiting staff we can include your recruitment advertisements in the Lymington.com Jobs Section, which is promoted weekly in our newsletter
  • If you then wish to make an occasional advertising or promotional splash (e.g. reminder of location and offering, seasonal offers, new product ranges) you can take advantage of our special members ‘Promotional Boost” facility - focussed promotion across all channels, starting at £75 plus VAT


Regular Promotion Membership:

Promotion Membership includes all the benefits of Featured Membership plus a bespoke monthly combination of marketing consultancy, online PR and promotion, including a 12-month communications plan incorporating your key messages to your target market. 

Promotion across the Lymington.com channels is included monthly, twice monthly or weekly depending on the level of frequency you choose. 

Promotion Membership enables you to focus on your day-to-day business, knowing that planned, regular communications will be going out to your local market across multiple media.

We write the communications plan in consultation with you, detailing timing, messages, images to be used, links and other information. The communications plan is normally detailed on a rolling three months basis, with flexibility for changes should preferred promotions and offers become available closer to the time

If you have local job vacancies that you wish to advertise we will add them to our jobs page and promote them for you separately via our channel promotions – in addition to your regular promotions.

Promotion membership is particularly beneficial for businesses which require regular promotion, including:

  • Restaurants and pubs with a stream of regular and ad hoc events which they wish to promote more widely than they are able to via their own channels
  • Businesses which already produce regular articles, blogs etc – we can promote these to a wider audience with a link as most helpful either via content on the Lymington.com website or direct to the business’ own website
  • All businesses that want to extend their reach a regular basis. You can reach even further with additional articles (reviews/third party champion style) which are priced separately.
  • Twice Monthly and Weekly Promotion Membership plans are ideal for businesses with multiple products and/or services who would like multiple messages championed more frequently. for example hotels with a number of target markets (e.g. local and visitor) and a range of offerings such as restaurants, wedding packages, corporate facilities, spa and so on

Bespoke Promotion

Our bespoke ‘one off’ or ‘short term’ promotion plan option is suitable for intensive campaigns leading up to a specific event or launch, such as a new shop or restaurant opening or a weekend event.

  • Includes detailed Event Listing, Featured Business Page or News Bulletin - as best fits the purpose
  • Includes channel promotion across our media channels: newsletter and social media pages
  • Includes promotion of job vacancies if relevant
  • Minimum price includes set up, job advertising and promotion across all channels during one week: £125
  • For longer periods of promotion, price to be agreed: in principle each additional promotion across channels is priced at £50

A short term ‘Bespoke Burst’ of promotion is also better for some businesses which prefer to take Business or Featured Membership and then ‘top up’ with intensive promotion, ideal for a seasonal business which doesn’t require all year round promotion.

Job Vacancies

Our Jobs page is promoted every week in the newsletter and also across our social media channels. We are often asked by businesses if we will advertise their job vacancies and we are now offering this as a separate stand alone service for those who wish to take advantage of it, whether or not you are a member. We do however ask that you register your business with a free listing on Lymington.com.

Article Sponsorship

This is the opportunity to have your business promoted as a ‘sponsor’ of a specific article on Lymington.com. The reference to your business will include your logo and name together with a short paragraph about your business and a link to your website.

It is not necessary to have a paid Membership in order to take advantage of this opportunity to have your business promoted multiple times thanks to repeat promotion of the article itself. We do however ask that you register your business with a free listing on Lymington.com.

For some subject specific articles it is also possible to include mention of your business at a lower price, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Leaderboard Advertising

Online advertising offers a fantastic visual opportunity for businesses to reach out to our growing audience. Headline images with captions are available on specific pages. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
