Thank You!

Hi. My name is Jeff Shibley and I appreciate you visiting my website. Thanks to high Google search rankings, the website generates between 1500 to 2000 visitors per day who are interested in Colorado concerts, events, festivals and things to do. Keep in mind, you found my site and thousands of others are too. You can choose to be an advertiser where I do all the work, post your events on EiC as soon as you post them on your website and promote your venue and events during the term of our agreement. Or you can choose to have your events listed for free. There are 4 types of event listings posted here. Just send me an email and let me know what I can do for you. 

  1. Advertiser, Featured and Promoted events program. My site and I are currently available to be a member of your promotional team. I'll work to maximize the exposure of your events(s) though all of EiC's channels. I'll boost your event listing to the top of multiple pages (Area, Venue, Categories, This Week in Colorado, Home Page, etc...) and include links to your website, photos, editorial about your event, and videos. I'll also place a banner ad promoting your event, area or venue that rotates on all pages of the site. I'll feature you in the top of page slide show that gets you another 20K views a week, I'll post a banner ad to rotate on the appropriate area page, feature your event in the Tuesday enewsletters and social media posts. I DO EVERYTHING, YOU JUST SEND ME A LINK TO YOUR WEBSITE or FACEBOOK PAGE and I'll have your event set up within 24 hours. Cost is $25 for one event | $45 for 2-3 events | $65 for 4-7 events | $85 for 8-10 events | $115 for 10-20 events and $200 for unlimited event listings over a 6 month period.
  2. Charitable event listing program If you have an event where 100% of the proceeds are donated to a humantarian cause that benefits the poor, the sick, the disabled, military veterans or the dying, send me an email with a link to website and I'll donate a featured and promoted event. (receives most of the benefits of a featured and promoted event). It's my way of saying thanks to you for your effort help to fellow humans.
  3. Link Trade progam If you post the EiC Logo on your website with a link to the eventsincolorado.com website, I'll set your event up with all the bells and whistles a featured and promoted event gets. Just send me an email so I can review your site
  4. Free Listings Progam Yes, I do post cool and exceptional Colorado events for free if they fit the site's format. A free event listing includes a basic listing on the This Week in Colorado page, the area page, the venue page and one category page. A basic listing is made up of THE EVENT NAME, EVENT DATE, EVENT VENUE, EVENT AREA. If you just have one event, send a press release email with a link ot your website and I'll set it up when I can. If you have more than one event you'd like them posted for free, send me an email request and I'll send over a form that will make it easier for me to load the events. Free event listngs include: events name, date(s), venue, area, 1 category. If you have more than one event that you'd like to be posted for free, please download the eic event submission for here. If you have trouble downloading the form, send an email to shibleyjeff@gmail.com and I'll send it to you via email.

After spending thousands on larger, mainstream publications and media outlets, EventsinColorado.com was the second most effective way we got the word out on our event, based on Google Analytic.
