How complete is your Euan's Guide listing?
Your Euan’s Guide listing is a great opportunity to be seen by new customers and potential visitors, so it’s important to make sure you keep yours up to date and full of relevant, interesting information! If you’re unsure whether you’re making the most of your listing, here is our checklist of things to consider when you next log in.
Have you updated your listing to include Covid information?
We've added a new feature to the website which allows venues to include Covid information, such as amended opening times or changes to how you operate, as well as details on safety measures you have implemented to help keep your customers safe.
Have you sent us your best images?
Old pictures can be misleading, and they won’t do as good a job at representing your venue as current photos! Make sure you use large, high quality images when you list on Euan’s Guide and update them if anything changes.
How attention grabbing is your profile?
After your picture (and your star rating of course!), your profile or ‘Venue Description’ is often the first thing that people will read about you. You have 1000 characters to show people why they should visit your venue, and you can really use this to stand out from the crowd!
Think of this as your very own trophy cabinet! Awards are a great way to show people that you’re good at what you do; and if you have any accessibility awards – even better!
Have you included your venue's accessibility features?
Sometimes, people are just looking for quick information. This means that your ‘Venue Details’ need to be correct and up to date! These are the purple icons that appear on your venue listing that show at a glance what kind of access facilities your venue has. You can see an example in the image below. Not all features will be relevant to your venue, for example a theatre isn’t expected to have ‘Accessible Overnight Accommodation’, so you can tick ‘Not Applicable’ rather than ‘No’.
Do you have a Changing Places Toilet?
Don’t keep it a secret if you have a verified Changing Places Toilet – this is something to shout about! Make sure you let us know if you install a Changing Places facility, or simply log in and update your listing.
Already have an amazing access statement?
We want Euan’s Guide to be a place where people can see access information for thousands of venues all in one place – but we also encourage all venues to have their own access guides and access statements on their websites! Link to your in-depth statement or guide that you have created so that Euan’s Guide users can delve even further into your disabled access information.
Have you made a video?
Videos are a great feature to add to your listing as you can incorporate subtitles, audio description or BSL. The more accessible formats you have to get your access information across, the better!
Got an event coming up?
Don’t forget to use the ‘What’s On’ section of you Euan’s Guide listing! Particularly if you have accessible performances or events coming up, Euan’s Guide is a great place to spread the word.
