Are you interested in reaching more customers, free marketing and helping Hertfordshire to start Moving More? 

It’s time to get Hertfordshire Moving More and what better way to do this, than launching our Activity Finder – helping people discover physical activity opportunities around them.

Working in partnership with organisations across Hertfordshire, the Activity Finder will be forming the ‘go to’  place to find local physical activity opportunities for Hertfordshire residents as well as professionals working with them. Therefore, this is a fantastic opportunity for deliverers to attract new members by taking advantage of free advertising!

Whether you’re running a one-off session, a local club or community group or a major facility you can upload your physical activity sessions for free today and get Hertfordshire Moving More.

Whilst the new Activity Finder is live, we are planning to launch it in early November once deliverers have had a chance to put their opportunities on.

Uploading Your Sessions

To get your session on our activity finder, head over to either the Open Sessions or Reach platforms to create a free account and input all the details of your sessions.

Activity Finder Support Webinar

On Tuesday 12th October HSP held a webinar giving more detail around what the activity finder is, the importance of using open data and a walk through of how to upload your physical activity sessions. The webinar was recorded and can be seen below:

 

How does it work? 

The Activity Finder uses open data to advertise physical activity opportunities to people in Hertfordshire. Open data is about making your activities and sessions easier for participants to find, in the same way that it’s simple to search and book a flight, hotel room, or order a takeaway. It involves deliverers sharing details on such as class times, locations and costs within systems that are Open Active compliant, then our Activity Finder pulls that information through so that everyone can find out what is available local to them. Potentially sensitive details, such as names, emails and payment information, are not involved in open data.

Opening your data simply means making it easier for people to find out about your activity. The more people know about you, the more people are likely to join in! You can see more information in the video below:

We hope that you’ll join us in helping Hertfordshire to get Moving More and the Activity Finder can help you gain some more members too.
