Its 10 years since Eventdomain went live online, and makes us one of the oldest websites on the web.  Since our innovative climb, we’ve had meetings with MD’s, Professional Institutes, Charities etc, been in the National media, gained branded clients such as Dettol and Securitas, had millions of views and hundreds of thousands of visitors.   ED’s won awards, been a national finalist, a ton of local media and made profits, plus expanded the company with a real search engine called Venuedomain.com, paid for out of profits.    We estimate we’ll make 100k in profit within the next 3 years just from Eventdomain alone, and will expand further into publishing online.

Katie Price BB 2

Reports are circulating that Katie Price is to get £500k to enter the house this year.   Is this not a teeny tiny tad too much for an appearance fee?    Oh well, that’s the game I suppose.

Eventdomain.co.uk  sure see its share of bad customers over the years, you know the type, the ones who take advertising/links, then claim they dont owe etc –  like the following bunchof  idiots Flavourz Event and Party Services, which we assume is a small, sole trader, but we’ll fill you in on this operation.

On the 7th Dec 2014,  they took a listing on Eventdomain, and they were supposed to pay us via bank transfer, but when we checked with our bank, obviously they didn’t, so we
fired off an invoice and waited – now usually companies contact us to arrange payment, but this one didn’t,  so we contacted them and the little girl (who answered)  went nuts, psycho infact demanding we remove her and how dare we charge her for a service she admits she signed upto – oh how awful!   well, not really as we are used to it, but got no chance of telling our side of things, infact when we mentioned that Trading Standards were on our side, and that we
have contract, and won our case against others in Court, she went nuts – nice huh, some people.

She then tried to make out she didnt know it was a paid service, hmmm, funny how our fees are clearly displayed throughout registration, in our terms and our advertise page – oh and don’t forget the huge purple graphic and flash viewer
as well – perhaps she’s blind or stupid, but likely both I suspect.   Terms & Conditions

Anyway, here’s the call transcript between Eventdomain and Flavourz so you can judge for yourselves:    Following our phone conversation today  19th December 2014 at 2:14pm:

———————————————————–

The Call Conversation:

Eventdomain:   Hello,  we are calling today as we are one of your creditors, and you didnt pay us when you should have done.

Flavourz:  Right, and you are?

Eventdomain:     You took some advertising on one of our websites, Eventdomain.co.uk

Flavourz;  Oh right, yes, er, we thought it was free, cos when we signed up right, it never said it was paid.

Eventdomain:   Well, it says so on all our registration pages, so its imposible to miss that, and we can prove it.

Flavourz:          But we didnt want to pay, so why cant you just remove us:

Eventdomain:  Sorry, it doesnt work that way, we provided a service to you and you must pay us, as we have contract.

Flavourz:   We arent going to pay you.

Eventdomain:   But we have a contract, you automatically signed up to when you registered to us.

Flavourz:  Yes, I did sign up, when I signed up I thought it was free.  I dont care, I dont care, I’m not paying you.

Eventdomain:   But we have an online contract, with Trading Standards backing me up.

Flavourz:    Whats an online contract?  yes, but when I signed up, why didnt you take payment online?   others take online payment.

Eventdomain:   you got an invoice and letter, sent on the 15th Dec to flavourzservices@yahoo.co.uk and the full details of how to pay were on the site when you signed up.

Flavourz:   No they werent, No they werent…

Eventdomain:   yes they are, in about 6 different places, and also links from the homepage eg:    http://www.eventdomain.co.uk/advertise/

_________________________________

We then sent an email to Flavourz Event and Party Services:

Let me explain, as amicable as I wanted the comms to go, you chose to have a slagging match in the hope it will make this go away – I assure you, this will NOT be going away.   Let me show you proof of what happens and what we did to others when we took legal action: (please see attachment).   We will prove our paid services, that you knew about them and yet still signed up and took our service.  In doing so, we have an online contract and this is Trading Standards view on Eventdomain vs Debtors:

The main problem with t&c’s is whether they are part of a contract.  If they are referenced in a signature box or you cannot proceed to contractually agree without clicking that you have read and agree to abide by the t&c’s, then they are part of the contract.  Of course, whether Click4 Cabs is worth suing is another matter but it looks as if you have a legal right to claim from them.

—————————————

This is good evidence from a Government agency, backing Eventdomain up saying we have a contract and right to claim.    So we can do this amicably, you can do the right thing and pay, or we take further action, which you won’t enjoy, no matter how much you claim you don’t care.    It costs just £25 to begin action against you, so you might want to consider your options plus we have other options we are fully prepared to use, if you fail to pay us.

Also you may want to view our full Terms, just so you wont be able to act or claim innocence in this:   http://www.eventdomain.co.uk/terms-conditions-eventdomain/

You are advised to pay via bank transfer today:

Failure to pay will result in action

Kind regards

More proof that niche websites work is a further 80 companies have registered on Eventdomain in July.

Some of the names are:

MagicalParties.co.uk
Mobilebar4hire
Queens Theatre London
Spice Village Catering
Flower Delivery Co

this makes 1775 companies and websites who opted for Eventdomain’s services over the last 3 years.   We are one of the top websites in London now, (ranked by Alexa), so why not use us for part of your online campaign today.   ED delivered in excess of 900 visitors for just one of our advertisers, within a 12 month period, so it works.

Eventdomain gets huge influx of account members now using the website.  They signed up over a 3 year period – so about 500 per year which is great news, and further proves the popularity of niche websites.

ED now looks forward to a very successful future, but realises it cannot remain relaxed as more work is needed.   A positive is that ED now gets an extra 20’000 visitors per year, and feel we can reach 200k by 2015.

As promised our user stats for 2011-2012.

ED had an average of 6000 page requests per sub-category, so that’s 6000 x 336 categories = 2’016’000 requests not including previous years.  A Rough guide of 50% of users clicking to client websites gives us a delivery of at least 1 million plus visitors.

On average we provide clients with 200 to 1000 clickthroughs to their websites.  This was achieved by our National Press coverage which went out to 8.5 million in 2008 and local coverage in 20 local newspapers in 2010/11 .    ED was also featured in Hotel business magazine, Marketing Week and Yahoo News   http://www.eventdomain.co.uk/press/

bb_day-56_scott-crying-over-saras-mums-nomination

Scott Mason has been ticked off by Big Brother for constant rule breaking.

He claimed that Deana has a “Slapability factor”.

Scott has been warned previously by BB, for a string of remarks about using aftershave as a drink and racist comments.

His latest comments were about Deana’s model credentials.

“There’s no model about her – its just rediculous”

Becky BB

BB’s Becky Hannon has threatened to walk out due to comments from Luke Anderson this week.

Luke said:  “Becky has as much respect for me as she does her BMI”

Becky told friend, Scott Mason:   “I just wanna go, dont want it to upset my family”

Big Brother continues on channel 5….

BB Conor

Housemate Conor McIntyre has hinted he may walk off the channel 5 show.

The fitness trainer discussed with other housemates that he could walk out of the house.  Conor survived last Friday’s eviction, responded badly about  losing Arron Lowe.

Sara McLean said “If you walk, you’re going to regret it for the rest of your life”

Brian Dowling

Brian Dowling  claims he has no control over the Big Brother crowds.

“I don’t encourage the big brother audience to boo”    –  Since the BB series started in 2000, many contestants have been boo’d, and its a natural part of the show, but has been revealed as a quirk rather than something organised by the BB producers.
