Most Local talk threads belong in the Discussions topic. If there was a thread in your old Local you were particularly fond of, you should find it there.
Our Campaigns, Childcare Wanted, Nanny Share, Skills Swap, Friendship Bench and Volunteering Talk boards have now all merged into Discussions to pool all of the information, advice and support in one place.
We have moved things around a bit. If you're in a small town, try looking in the county site in new Local. Enter your postcode here [[http://local.mumsnet.com/find-a-local-site ]] to find your closest site.
Click on the 'Offers' button on the Mumsnet Local Homepage (on the right hand side, above the search box). Click the 'Place Your Own Offer Here' button and fill out the fields with the required information and attach a suitable image. You can preview your offer before it goes live. Once you're happy with how it looks click the 'Place offer' button and you will be directed to Paypal to complete payment. Mumsnet Local Discounts cost £30 per month.
You can post a pinned thread on Local Talk by following the ‘Start a new thread within this topic’ link and filling in your subject line and opening text. Then check the ‘Pin this thread on Mumsnet Local XXX’ box and choose how long you want your thread to remain up. 2 weeks costs £25, 1 month costs £50 and 2 months costs £75. Fill in your contact details, choose when you want your pinned thread to start and click Create Conversation, after which you’ll be directed to PayPal to complete your payment.
The Local Editor for each site will be able to help you with any further queries.
Click on the ‘Advertise Here’ button on the right hand side of the page and you can easily upload an ad to your chosen Local page.
These sit on the right hand side of each page. There are 8 ad slots per targeted zone (which rotate if there are more than 4). There are three different options: Standard static or animated ad of 90 x 90 pixels; or a static or animated drop in ad of 300 x 150 pixels.
Target areas are:
£60 per site per month for the first targeted area (£12 for any additional targeted area for the same booking period). For example if you wanted to advertise across all pages of Things To Do and On The High Street on the Bristol site for one month, it would cost £72.
Discounts available: 5 months for the price of 6 or 12 months for the price of 10. Discount is made automatically at point of upload or do mail your Local Editor for package deals.
Static or animated ads of 300 x 250 pixels underneath the 'Welcome' box and Asda ad on the right hand side of the pages.
Rates on local sites are £30cpm* (with £250 minimum spend). So, if a site is getting 13,000 page views per month, they would cost £390, (15,000 page views, £450 and so on). Local Editors will be able to give you information about pageviews.
