EastLondonLines.co.uk is the news and listings site for everyone connected by the East London Line. We are dedicated to creating and cultivating a sense of community along the line. A social enterprise run by Goldsmiths, we provide independent journalism whilst enabling people to discover the pleasures of a London that has been out of reach.
Goldsmiths is the leading Arts University in Europe. This is a rare opportunity to link with a prestigious brand. The project is based within the award-winning Media and Communications department, renowned for developing innovative concepts in communication, with alumni reporting for the key national newspapers. Advertising with us gives your business exposure to the journalists of the future.
The website itself is a brand new concept linking news and business based on a travel link, instead of by borough. The extension of the East London Line means access to new customers across four boroughs. EastLondonLines.co.uk is designed to be the perfect vehicle to showcase your business to the 11 million people using the new line, and bring them straight to your door – giving you access to those that can access you.
Our ongoing relationship with TFL will create opportunities for us to leaflet the line, link with their website, use TFL poster sites, use platforms for performance, have a presence in their promotional material, and collaborate on their campaigns. We will be sharing the benefits of these exclusive opportunities with the local businesses who advertise with us.
EastLondonLines.co.uk has been running since November 2009 and in this short time we have experienced extraordinary growth in users. By the time the line linked through to Croydon our monthly unique visitor figures had already hit 15,000 – it took a comparable community site in South London, ten years to reach 10,000 visitors. This has been achieved by establishing ourselves as a community voice providing resonant, quality coverage.
Our ‘meet the trader’ section bridges the advertising and news content, giving insight into the character of those running local businesses. This animates our listings and advertising content by demonstrating how community and business go hand-in-hand.
Our advertising opportunities have been created to fund young journalists whilst supporting local businesses. By advertising with us you are helping to secure independent local journalism for the future, and highlighting your presence in a community network. All profits made will go directly towards paying bursaries to young, graduating journalists.
