Joining us is simple…and it really won’t cost you the earth to get connected to your potential customers with The Elmbridge Life Network and our Elmbridge and Surrey wide partner channels.

If you would prefer for us to contact you to discuss this in more detail please leave your details below and we’ll be in touch today.
As you probably know Claygate Life is part of the Elmbridge Life Network (https://elmbridge.life).
The Elmbridge Life Network (https://elmbridge.life) consists of a borough-wide network of local, community interest websites covering Walton on Thames, Cobham, Esher, Weybridge, Thames Ditton, Claygate and Molesey.
Before we get down to website statistics, let’s talk social – as you can see our Social Media reach travels far beyond our local borders.
We offer many opportunities to help increase the exposure of local businesses like yours in the local community and have a number of local partners on our websites, these can all be found on the ‘Local Businesses’ menu option as well as on a scrolling carousel on each page on our website(s).
Here are what some of them have to say about working with us:
We have been using the Walton-on-Thames.life network as our primary method of marketing for the past year. The reach of this page and its associated social media channels is huge and always kept fresh and up to date. I really do feel the most valuable advertising we do is via Walton-on-Thames.life and we really appreciate their support.
– Emma, Riverside Rebels
Being a local independent business in Walton-on-Thames, we need to be able to tap in to the local community through lots of different ways. Being an Walton-on-Thames.life network partner has been an excellent platform for us to be able to advertise to people who live within the local area. We are not very “tech minded”, but Nigel has given us very good advice and helped us set up a page that he keeps updated for us and “likes” and promotes our business regularly. Our business has definitely benefited from being on Walton-on-Thames.life and we will continue to advertise with him in the years to come.
– Lisa & Ruth, Little All Sports
We have been an Walton-on-Thames.life network partner for the last 3 years and have found the service and relationship to have been extremely useful for our business.
We run a community-based Therapy Pilates and Back Care Business in Hersham, Walton and Weybridge. As a small business promoting ourselves and making sure we have the correct information and approach on our website is always as challenge- there are simply not enough hours in the day to do everything!
Fortunately Nigel has been able to give us that extra support we need. Having a listing and presence on the Hub and working with Nigel has meant that we now feature well in Google searches as well as having an extra social media presence to complement our own efforts.
Nigel is an expert in the field of websites and social media so knows exactly what is needed to help us raise our profile and get those all important clicks on our website.
He is also always looking at ways to improve coverage and engagement in many different areas so the audience is always growing.
This has meant we can concentrate more on the jobs we are good at- taking care of people’s health and wellness.
I’d whole-heartedly recommend a partnership with Walton-on-Thames.life to any small business that feels they need some extra help with their digital marketing. Money well spent!
– Jo, Better Body Pilates
Here at Harmes Turner Brown, we have been working closely with the Walton-on-Thames.life network as a partner for the last couple of years. The extra advertising and exposure we receive from the Hub and their sister websites really helps support a small local business like us. Nigel is a joy to work with and the effort, energy and passion he shows certainly comes across within the site which many local businesses like ourselves benefit from. Social media is now a huge part of our everyday lives and Walton-on-Thames.life are extremely active over Facebook given us the opportunity to reach more and more followers! We believe the Walton-on-Thames.life network offers good value for money for the exposure we have on the sites.
– Steve, Harmes Turner Brown Estate Agents
We are much more than just a business listings website we actively and regularly publish local, community and family related content that directly appeals to the local residential population.
In other words – your future clients and customers.
Local residents actively and regularly visit our website – this is our website traffic for last week (as published on 20th January):
So apart from…
What other benefits are there?
We limit promotional posting in our Facebook groups to our full page partners – this provides direct access to almost 39,000 group members, all of whom are local residents – exactly your target demographic.
Our Partners receive free slots in our newsletter – this goes out to over 2000 subscribers and has an ‘open rate’ of well over 60% – this is an ideal way to get it in front of people away from Social Media.
We share posts from our Partners to the main feed of our Facebook pages which combined have over 22000 page likes.
You have the option of providing editorial content for us to publish – this is only available to full page partners and is the perfect way to showcase your expertise and allow our followers to get to know the human side of your business. You!
A link to your pages from the ‘Local Listings’ menu option on our homepage.
We currently publish individual consolidated pages for Fitness Classes and Kids Activities – you can see how these rank for local keywords below.
We have the following dedicated business support sections in the pipeline for 2021
Local Fitness Classes
Kids Drop-In Activities
Home Improvement Services;
Business Support Services;
Children’s Support Services; and
Children’s Party Suppliers
Last, and certainly not least, we will design for you a completely independent page, separately indexed by Google, which will rank highly in the search engines
– this enables you to diversify your online presence, spend less time worrying about your own website and reduce your dependence on Social Media activity to get new clients and customers.
Most of our single pages rank on page one of Google of their own accord for various business related keywords – as you can see below we dominate Google Page 1 rankings for local search terms.
We hold 2 out of the top 3 Page 1 spots for keyphrase ‘kids multi sports walton’
3rd place on Page 1 for ‘schoolwear suppliers hersham’
3 out of the top 4 Page 1 spots for ‘baby activities walton on thames’
5th and 6th spot on Page 1 for ‘accountancy services hersham’
3rd place on Page 1 for ‘girls netball classes esher’
4th place on Page 1 for ‘pilates classes weybridge’
This is just a small selection of our current rankings to demonstrate how we are ranking different types of businesses in different areas.
We really could go on and on with further examples for other pages but we want to get to the point….
As you can see we have a huge social media reach.
Publish content which actively attracts local residents.
Provide numerous benefits to local businesses who are Hersham Hub partners
And are experts in the field of SEO.
We are also passionate about continuous improvement. We will never sit back and think ‘haven’t we done well’…
As we have mentioned 2020 will see us increase the number of individual consolidated pages.
2020 saw us increase our website portfolio to broaden our search engine coverage across Elmbridge and Surrey. 2021 will see us actively grow our Borough and County wide channels.
Becoming a full page partner with us will cost £120 for a 12 months presence on Walton-on-Thames.life, this automatically gives you a 25% discounted option to get a 12 month presence on our Walton-on-Thames site (https://whatsinwalton.co.uk) – If you take both options for £210 per year this will automatically give you a completely FREE page on our Esher site (https://whatsinesher.co.uk) also for 12 months.
AND – for a limited period we are also including Weybridge Life in the 3 site package – so you get 4 sites for the price of 2.
Joining us is so simple.
Send us some information to firstname.lastname@example.org about your business, some images and we’ll do the rest we can get you published and shared across our social media channels within 24 hours of your content approval.
