Everyone gets the choice of free or very low-cost advertising
Listings are free for individuals, businesses, sports clubs, social groups and services.
This means that everyone gets to tell the community about what they do and what they can offer – it’s not restricted to those with an advertising budget.
Low cost advertising is available in the form of complete web pages for $5 per week including hosting.
Whichever advertising you choose, we will do our best to promote you to the community.
Unlike other forms of advertising (radio 30 seconds, newspaper a few days), Vitalise is available to its audience 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Information stays where we put it on the site so it can always be located – not like putting a notice on a community social media site, where it will quickly be replaced by pictures of cats and dogs. We use those sites too, but Vitalise has one specific mission – to do the best possible job of representing everything in our community, and informing each and every member of this community about everything they need to know to get the best out of what we have here.
This means that someone looking for a special bargain, a coffee, a sports club or help with their health can search for it at 4pm or 2am – it’s there for them at all times.
it will help keep money in our local communities.
We have a huge range of great businesses and services in Thames, and they deserve our support.
Vitalise will allow more people to see exactly what is on offer in our community, and help our businesses thrive.
This includes visitors to our community, who need to find what is available and where it is.
it has people waiting to hear about your offers to the community
Vitalise has a rapidly expanding list of locals who have signed up as members to win prize draws and hear about the offers that businesses and groups make to the local community.
A monthly email to these members will include all Special Deals made by local businesses and groups.
A quick and easy way to get your message to people who want to hear it.
it has free stuff
It has a section where we can offer free goods or services to fellow members of the community,
whether this is a bag of lemons or a retired person wishing to use their skills to help another person or group.
Listings for garage sales are welcome.
it has a jobs section
This will help businesses needing staff locate the right people, and help job seekers find a position.
it’s new, and available for use right now.
The more listings we all put on the website, the better our community will be represented and the more useful the site will be.
it’s independently funded
Vitalise is built and sponsored by local business Photo Factory, so it’s not burning any ratepayer cash,
and there is no subscription payable to use the website.
