The Business Directory Ranking Process

  • We have 3 Listing Types - (Lifetime, Premium and Free ). Our Directory system automatically ranks listings first by Membership Type....
  • To find out about Membership Types see our business advertising options.
  • All Listings are then prioritised using a 'Ratings & Review Score'.  We believe Star Ratings and Reviews from customers or suppliers fairly measure the trustworthiness and dependability of a company.
  • Listings with Reviews are automatically listed above listings with No Reviews.
  • In other words, businesses with Reviews are shown at the top of the page (within their Business Category and within their Membership Type) and thus enjoy the highest Click Through Rates from visitors to the Directory
  • If two listings (in the same Category) have an Identical Rating Score, the business listing with the Most Reviews will rank higher than the Business with fewer reviews.
  • Other companies with No Reviews are then ordered by 'Most Recently Submitted' to the Directory.
  • The owners of these newly listed organisations may not have had a chance to ask their customers or suppliers to post a positive review yet.
  • In summary, the Overall Star Rating Score for each rated Business is calculated using a combination of the Total Number of Reviews combined with the Average Numeric Score of all Rated Reviews for that listing.

Overview of the Entertainment & Arts Sector

The entertainment and arts industries very often span the globe and are most often without national boundary. In many cases, films and music can be enjoyed in more than one culture and in more than one language. However, there are limits to which entertainment forms transport around the world, and this may be the reason why some comedy sketches that have been big successes in one country fail to engage audiences in another. That said, the entertainment and arts industries are huge. The internet and the social networking phenomenon have done a great deal to continue to fuel the international dynamic of entertainment and arts.

Entertainment can range from organised large scale events and event planning service companies have tapped into a demand from people who are seeking excitement, fun and new experiences as part of a way to spend their leisure time. On the other hand, entertainment can also mean having a night in front of the television watching a dvd or digital streaming device or listening to music on a cd, or digital device. The music industry in its own right is a multi billion dollar industry. The recording, listening and sharing of music has gone through a revolution of late, with the onset of digital production and online sharing of music files.

Whilst the use of digital media for entertainment purposes has continued to become ever more accessible, affordable and easy to use, live entertainment still proves popular. Being part of an audience watching live theatrical productions, witnessing live sporting events and being immersed in the atmosphere of a massive event such as the Olympics can not be replicated and are for many people, once in a lifetime opportunities. There has been media coverage related to the use of recording devices used at live events. Artists and those in the entertainment business appear to have been divided in the opinion as to whether their use at concerts should be banned. Technology has become so advanced that uploads can take place of events to the internet, images beamed around the world, on almost a live basis before even the mainstream media can disseminate them. This can prove to be contentious when it comes to copyright laws and possible infringements.

Many years ago, it was thought that video would be the downfall of the movie business; however film goers have continued to visit the movie theatre. It may be headed for another shift and this time it may be massive. There is so much digital entertainment choice that cinemas and films have to compete hard to be successful. Big blockbuster movie entertainment and movie theatres have to offer an experience that cannot be matched elsewhere. Movie theatres are finding fierce competition from highly realistic digital gaming devices or forms of live stage productions.

Carnivals fairs and festivals are forms of live entertainment. Offering a diverse array of entertainment forms, the sounds and spectacle of a carnival will have had a lot of design input in order to create magnificent colourful costumes. Musicians and experts in musical productions film and photography may also be required. Events planning specialists will be needed to pull all elements together.

Operating within entertainment means very often keeping up with fashion and the latest trends, or perhaps more accurately setting the trends. Fashion consultants can assist both individuals and businesses to be on trend or ahead of the curve in the branding of themselves to portray a certain image through clothing, accessories, hair, cosmetics, colour and general style. Another way to create a unique fashionable feel to clothing is to have it personalised. Companies that offer this personalisation service may have clients that are large corporates looking to brand straightforward and simple items that extend their brand familiarity to a particular target market. Other businesses offering this sort of service may provide one off items to individuals looking to create their own fashionable piece of clothing that is personalised for them alone, such as personalised t shirts, bags and sweatshirts.

Entertainment for families and children should not be forgotten. Children will often find their own entertainment. However in a digital age, some say that children and young people are developing shorter attention spans and are less able to create their own games from their imagination. It may appear that there is a divergence in thinking of what families are doing for entertainment. In the western world, busy lives may mean that families do not have the time to spend together, going outdoors enjoying each other’s company or attending a movie together. However, the trend for outdoor pursuit type activities that are organised and planned is a growing area, especially with regard to vacation time. Staycations are popular with families who are taking advantage of what is on their doorstep, going to entertainment venues for the day rather than taking a two week holiday abroad.
