Making the most of Membership

It’s not all about meetup’s and events - Here are 5 (other) ways you can benefit from being a Wired Sussex member.

We’ve been running a lot more events this year and as a consequence, we’ve seen a few new members join specifically to attend certain events.

This is great, but there’s much more to membership than just access to our exclusive programme of member events. So here’s a quick overview on some of the other ways that you can benefit from your membership.

Showcase your Business:

As a Wired Sussex member you can have a listing on our Business directory, which receives thousands of views per month.

This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your latest work, display client testimonials, and increase your visibility on Google by embedding meta-tags to help people find and connect with you.

Check this blog post for tips on getting your account fixed up and looking sharp.

Promote your news:

Let us help you shout about your achievements and news.

Adding news to our site is simple to do and free to all members. It’s the ideal place to gain visibility for your latest press release, news story or product launch, for free.

Every item you post will be featured on our website homepage, added to our RSS feed and considered for inclusion in our monthly newsletter!

You can add your news here or if you’d prefer you can email me a link to your RSS feed and we’ll look at embedding it directly onto our website.

Win more work:

A significant benefit of joining Wired Sussex is getting to hear about the latest fixed-term and project work opportunities by accessing our exclusive projects board.

Anyone – from local boutiques to multinational agencies – can post project details on the board so the projects range greatly, with everything from product photography to e-Commerce platform builds.

On average we see around 30 new projects listed a month; that’s fresh opportunities for you to access new clients and pitch for work, every day.  Why not take a look at what’s currently available?

Get the right staff:

Many of you use our Jobs Board; averaging over 40,000 (human) views per month, and with each job being emailed to over 11,000 job seekers – it’s simply the best place to get your job seen locally and find the talent you need to grow your business!

Don’t forget that our recruitment offer doesn’t end with the Jobs Board; as a member of Wired Sussex you can ask us for advice, anytime about your recruitment needs.

We regularly help our members with a range of issues including: getting the most out of their job descriptions, benchmarking salaries and providing additional exposure for roles through our social media channels.

Why not check out our CV database and Recruiting Tips, just some of the great resources we provide to support recruitment.

Find Funding:

Want to hear about the latest grants and funding opportunities? Then sign up to receive our exclusive Funding Newsletter (via your account page), which details upcoming opportunities that could benefit your business. Check out a sample email here.

So, there you have it, 5 simple ways you can get more from your membership. And remember, if you need any advice or just fancy a chat, then we’re just a phone call or email away.
