Llanelli Online is run as a small business and we are dependent on advertising and donations to survive. We are realistic enough to understand that we cannot compete with newspapers who have whole rooms of sales staff touting for business. We do not rely on the giants behind social media and their random adverts either and have resisted bogging down the site with random pop-ups. Our work reaches around 150,000 per month (combined website and social media).
We prefer to work with the local community. We have built the brand to reflect a hyperlocal need for factual news which focuses on some of the issues most important to the community of Llanelli and surrounding villages. We do cover some of the larger regional and national stories too.
Our adverts are reasonably priced and are discreetly placed on the website.
Anything we get goes into covering community news, business and sport. Llanelli Online is growing and we believe we are at the forefront of local journalism in Wales.
In order to keep it going we do need businesses to advertise and we need individuals to offer help through contributing whatever amount they believe is worth giving for what they receive. We have created this page and facility in order to try and generate enough to survive only.
If you feel that you would like to contribute please do so via our Paypal account. Many thanks for your support.
There is no such thing as an ‘impartial’ press…. There are those who work for their community and those who work against their community.
