Information for Sponsors

I started English Living in the summer of 2020 during Covid-19 pandemic in order to stay busy and to keep up to date with the latest news on the UK housing industry which I have been reporting about for many years. Now entering its fourth year I would like to expand the marketing of English Living on social media outlets with their advertising plans they offer which till now I have not had the financial ability to do so. I would like to coordinate this with organizations from the housing and energy saving, eco-friendly sustainable technology product industries which I report on frequently that are popular topics in the UK. I am currently a one-person operation as I design all of the layouts for publication and posting on social media platforms. This assistance would be helpful to my continuing to publish English Living and expand its readership. Sponsors will receive top priority for their products press releases to be published.
