DEVONSHIRE MAGAZINE’S LONG-TERM COMMITMENT
Devonshire magazine has spent the past 6 years and made a major long-term investment in order to create the totally unique HUBCAST websites. You’d be wrong in thinking they’re just html web pages, HUBCAST is a very complex, bespoke software system.
Without wishing to overload you with technical detail, there’s nothing remotely comparable to HUBCAST in the UK with regard to the functions that this unique software system provides. Critically, what it allows event organsisers to do is promote events totally free on the HUBCAST websites, and gives event promoters the chance to access print-based magazine listings of independent publishers across the county. Additionally, HUBCAST has made visible a diverse range of events from the largest festivals to the smallest charity, club, society and village event, many of which didn’t previously have access to professional level promotion, as the majority of existing websites containing event information are either tourist based or ticketed portals, many with a closed-door policy.
To provide organisations with increased event exposure, HUBCAST allows independent magazine publishers to log in to our web server and via our Event Download Admin Console to extract event information, allowing them to populate their magazine event listings sections, this is provided totally free-of-charge, to ensure organisations gain the maximum exposure for their events from their use of HUBCAST. For publishers this is a boone, for instance Devonshire magazine has within 3 clicks, been able to download 650 events into a single magazine issue in about a minute, something that manually collated would take several days to collate and format, which would be very costly. Additionally, because times and dates are entered by the organisation directly, they have total control, ensuring there are no errors with this critical information. Nigel Jones, the MD, has been publishing magazines in Devon continuously for the past 22 years and recognises how important high quality events are to our county, both to the economy but also to our society in general. He says “What I’ve learnt over the past 22 years is just how important good quality events are to our local communities and also to tourism. I know from first hand experience what’s required to stage a successful event, it’s also true to say that many people involved in this process participate purely out of the kindness of their heart and demonstrate immense community spirit, giving their time and effort freely. These events enrich our communities and the organisations staging them should be helped in any way possible to achieve their aims.“
We’ve recently re-developed our mobile version of HUBCAST which is particularly important as half of our traffic is mobile based. Having a dedicated mobile version of HUBCAST also removes the tiresome requirement for the public to download and install an App, the mobile version of HUBCAST is instantly available. Desktop – we’re shortly about to release our 2nd re-skin of the original desktop/tablet version of HUBCAST in the next couple of months. Development continues, and now with the New WHAT’S ON and WHERE TO GO magazine for Devon launching in late October 17, the professional grade event promotion platform is reaching maturity. We continue to provide free software support as we have done for the past 6 years.
