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. 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. 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 | $40 for 2-3 events | $60 for 4-7 events | $80 for 8-10 events | $100 for 10-15 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 and it's cool and exceptional, 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 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. if you just have one event, send an email with a link ot your website and I'll set it up as soon as 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

I have special programs for chambers, communities and venues who have multiple or seasonal events that include even more bells and whistles. Feel free to shoot me an email with any questions or comments. [email protected]. Thanks again for visiting and I'll look forward to hearing for you.

Promoted and featured events program

A promoted and featured event includes:

  1. Design and produce banner ads and photo slide show ads
  2. Banner ads rotate on all pages throughout the site
  3. Static ads posted on high traffic pages throughout the site: Home Page, Concerts. Etc…
  4.  Add links, photos, sponsor logos and edit to listings
  5. Boost listing to top of events listings on area page, venue page and all appropriate category pages featuring links to website, photos, and edit.
  6. During the week the advertiser event takes place, guarantee all advertiser events listings are boosted to the top of Things to do this week in Colorado, home page and all blog pages.

2. Charitable listings program - I donate not free listings to some events where 100% of proceeds go to a charitable humanitarian cause (my definition). If your event donates 100% of its proceeds to charitable cause, I’ll do my research and if it meets my threshold, I’ll contact you and let you know that I donated a boosted listing. I try to be as generous as possible, but my donations are limited by time, space and finances.

3. Link trade listings - I trade links with a few quality websites out there. If you'd like your event to be part of the featured and promoted program in return for placing a link from your website to mine, let me know. I'll review your site and maybe we can make a trade.

4. Free Listing (who doesn't like free?)

I welcome your event on my website and will post it for free if it's cool and exceptional. A free listing includes the event name, date(s), venue and area. It is featured on one category page and below the fold on the area page, venue page, category page and things to do page. Free listings should be submitted at least three weeks before the event takes place and may take up to a week to be posted. If you have one event that you'd like posted for free on www.eventsincolorado.com, email that information to me at [email protected]. Here's what a free listing looks like:

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 [email protected] 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. Their reach is amazing in terms of "click throughs" and audience response to our listing was very gratifying.
