COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED, AND THE WINNER WAS......
vouchers4teesside.co.uk Good Cause 2013 - Request for nominations.
We're still hunting for our Good Cause of 2013 - a single Teesside charity that will be the focus of our attention for a full year. The selected Good Cause will receive as much promotion as we can muster, a free page on this site, free ads on our category pages, help with fundraising activities as well as 25% of our affiliate and other advertising revenue for the whole year. Nominations close at midday on 30th September. To nominate your preferred charity take a look at this page - Good Cause 2013.
Now you can Advertise with vouchers4teesside.co.uk
In preparation for the support our Good Cause will receive, we're now looking to build advertising options for Teesside Businesses. Having all Teesside businesses with a free page on the site will remain our focus and ultimate aim, of course, but we're looking to provide extra special promotions in the form of header banners, line ads, editorial features and category sponsorship ads at extremely competitive prices - ad space is limited however so be quick! Find out more here - Advertising Options. Or you can complete an enquiry form here. Businesses will benefit from increased coverage to our ever-growing membership and additional activity on our social media channels, as well as helping our local good cause in the process!
Update on membership.
Membership continues to expand - we now have in excess of 1000 members taking advantage of the offers already available through the site, but we'd really love to see more of you out there with your vouchers. Why not enlist your friends and family into the v4t fold - the more people using the vouchers the more likely we are to attract new businesses wanting to offer new deals to our members. Also, if you notice a particularly good business that is not on v4t why not tell them about the site, or tell us and we'll do the running!
Happy local spending!
We're on the lookout for a single charity to support on Teesside.
Ideally we'd like to set up a more binding partnership with a local good cause - something akin to a "Good Cause of The Year" where we set our sights on a specific target for a single charity and promote them and their fundraising activities for a full 12 months, we could even organise joint fundraising events.
We're offering 25% of our affiliate marketing revenue as a start as well as free promotion for the selected charity- but that's really not sufficient. What would be great is if our members got on board too - perhaps by agreeing to donate a proportion of any savings they make from using our vouchers - and if businesses could join in by providing additional offers or prizes for fundraising competitions.
To begin with we will have to decide on a charity to support. We'll shortly be polling our members and businesses with a selection of local good causes, all worthy of our support, but we'll be bringing it down to just one - and that charity will become our "Good Cause of the Year", chosen by our members and business advertisers. We'll then meet up with the chosen charity and arrange things from there.
vouchers4teesside is a free service to local businesses. By providing free membership to local people, and free web promotion to local businesses we hope to sustain the local economy. We operate purely on a voluntary basis - our only source of revenue is from affiliate advertising. By getting businesses on board to provide offers we hope to increase awareness of the site and, in doing so, raise funds for our chosen good cause.
Watch out for our Charity Selection Poll - we'll be emailing all of our businesses and members as well as posting lots about it on the site and on our social media channels. Please take the time to vote for your preferred 'winner'.

Okay, so we're not having the summer we wanted. But let's face facts, we live in the North East of England, when have we ever been blessed with truly hot summers? (Anyone remember 1976??)
But bad weather needn't spoil your leisure activities - there's plenty to do indoors and plenty of savings to be made with your V4T discount vouchers and codes!

Getting yourself looking and feeling gorgeous even if the weather isn't! And there are a few new businesses on the site who are just gagging to help in your quest for beautification. Why not browse our Pamper section to discover the many ways V4T can help you forget the British weather.

The vouchers4teesside site is growing steadily month by month. In May we welcomed several new businesses who decided to bite the bullet and take a free ad page to promote their venture (A selection is listed below) and we're in talks with a number of other Teesside businesses about promotions and offers of interest to our members - watch this space!!!
There’s never been a more exciting time to join vouchers4teesside.co.uk.
As our membership grows and people start to utilise the great offers we already have, so interest grows from other businesses to join the site and add an even greater choice of offers – it’s a win win all round!!
We’re currently working with a number of prospective new businesses to bring you bigger and better offers – including Military Fitness Group who are looking to launch an exciting new diet plan to the UK that we hope can have a direct impact by supporting a number of our selected charities – right here on Teesside. Other new prospects providing offers are Chapters Hotel & Restaurant in Stokesley, PW Flooring, House Designer wear, Yarm, Mink Tattoo & Coffee Bar, Middlesbrough and Jump-About (Bouncy Castles) and we’re also working with long-standing merchants to add value to their existing offers.
We’re also in talks with a number of our businesses to bring a package of fantastic prizes to our members over the coming months – watch this space!
It’s all go.
Keep using your vouchers – they can be downloaded straight to your phone or ipod/pad or printed off.
And, don’t forget, it’s free to sign up for membership and free to advertise your Teesside based business.
