Started in 1999, Richmond OnLine was created to promote Richmond to a global audience, to encourage visitors to the town and to produce a centre of information for the local community.

Richmond OnLine is privately funded through advertising and sponsorship along with the continued input from Moonburst.

We Can Help Promote Your Business

One of the main aims of Richmond OnLine is to promote Richmond, and with the support of local businesses we can continue to do so. By advertising with us you will be supporting this valuable local resource whilst letting us help promote your business.

Once a local business becomes a partner of Richmond OnLine, either by advertising or sponsorship, we invite you to use the web site and our social media channels for ongoing promotions and marketing for the period of your partnership.

The Events Diary is a very popular section on ROL and is a useful tool for business partners to promote events, functions and to post notices. Business advertising and promotions are restricted on the events page, but as a partner of ROL you are permitted to add more events without restrictions. We will also add your company or organisation logo to any events placed during your partnership with ROL.
Visit the events/what's on section:

The Local News section on ROL is also very popular, local business partners can send any press or marketing stories to us. We will post them on the web site and use our social media channels on Twitter and Facebook to extend the story's reach.

Twitter is an important tool for promoting your business. ROL partners are encouraged to @mention us in relavant tweets so we can RT them to our ever-increasing number of followers.
