I can’t wait to add you to the team!
What do you look for in a small hospitality business?
We love small businesses who are passionate about the value they add to people’s lives. So we look for start-ups (who’ve been trading for more than 6 months), growing small businesses and more established brands that will inspire our readers. We want people to be excited to try your business on a weekend because it has character and quirk, it’s unique and different, it’s trendy and innovative. If we’re excited to try you, we’re pretty sure our readers will be too.
All applications are vetted by Weekend Candy’s Founder and Editor, Claire Robinson, and measured against our own criteria. All of our team pride themselves on only working with heart-centred, professional suppliers who provide high quality products and services that readers can trust.
Is this the right investment for my business?
We understand how every penny counts when you run a small business. And whilst we can’t guarantee we’ll transform your customer base overnight, we do promise that you will be seen by people who want new weekend inspiration. So if it’s growth you want, this is an affordable way of stimulating the process. Plus, we promote every listing to the best of our ability at all times – to make you really stand out.
Why do you charge a fee for a listing?
Simply because we need to cover our time uploading your listing to the site and creating the assets that we then share across our social channels. If we did it all for free, a huge chunk of our day would disappear and Weekend Candy would become unprofitable. A small fee is the best way to make the Weekend Wishlist Directory work for both of us.
If you’re approved, we’ll email you with the information we need to get your listing live. Once we have all the information, we’ll create your directory listing – all listings go live between 1 – 5 days after receiving payment. We’ll then create the assets to promote your brand on my social media channels.
