More about the AEBP Website

The AEBP website is a tried and tested platform with a commitment to provide continuous improvements and regular updates for its users.

As part of your membership, you will have your own “shop front” on the website. This is a simple drag and drop page, giving you full control over your content and can be updated as often as you like. Think of it as a mini Facebook page, where you can direct people to your own website and where, with the functionality of the searchable database, more potential customers can reach you.

  • The website has 20% returning visitors – meaning people return again and again for more information and updates on what is happening.
  • The website is accessible on all device formats – with 50% of visitors accessing the website on mobile and tablet devices.
  • The website audience is growing exponentially.
  • 94% of visitors are accessing the site using the English language, but surprisingly, only 75% of this is from the UK – people from all around the world are also accessing the website and contacting us wanting to form working contacts, links and partnerships with EBPs across the UK.

So, what will it cost you?
