The literal (and human) cost of running Lev You Lots

We understand that people might rightfully ask "isn't this a resource for the community? How can you favour some businesses over others for money?"

In the interest of transparency, running a website isn't free. There's a few things that all add up, like:

  • the cost of the domain name (www.levyoulots.com)
  • the server running costs, which go up as more people use the site
  • the cost of third party software and plugins that add features, like contact forms

After that's all been paid for, it takes a lot of time to create and manage a website like this one. There are big jobs, like:

  • designing and building individual pages, and templates that support all the places, events and independents on the website
  • designing the Lev You Lots brand, so everything looks and feels familiar
  • writing all of the content, from home and 'about' pages to the individual guides and news
  • curating and writing social media pages

And the medium-to-small jobs:

  • updating information when it changes
  • adding new places when they open
  • adding and managing the events calendar
  • curating the home and hub pages to show relevant guides to the time of day, year or simply keep things fresh

To sum up, it takes a lot of time, skill, money and know-how to make something like this tick. And allowing businesses to promote on the site helps cover some of those costs.

We'd never promote a business or event that went against our values. We still stamp businesses that go out of their way to be awesome, like providing bicycle parking, supporting the community or prioritising accessibility.

And all the while, we'll be transparent with you about when and why we promote some businesses and events at different times.
