Choosing where to Advertise? - Some Things to Consider

Advertise Locally, Work Locally

The magazine is targeted in an area and is likely to produce work within that vicinity and so you may save time and costs when giving estimates and time scheduling in general

Establish Trust

The research is clear: Consumers trust print media above all other types of media, including digital news outlets and social media platforms.

Printed adverts Easier to Understand

Surveys have shown that Printed adverts are easier to understand by a factor of 2.4 times compared to digital ads

Magazine and Online

  • There is a discount for block bookings as repetition is important. We deliver to the same homes every month.

  • We give a personal service, your business is important to us too.

  • Because the magazine lasts for a month it is easy for people to keep and re-find any ad that interests them, whereas loose leaflets often feel like “clutter”, and meet their doom. Appearing again reminds people of their interest.

  • The magazine is delivered to almost 10,000 homes every month – our delivery service is the largest in the city. It is well-read and most people keep it for reference during the month. 1000 pick-up copies are placed in shops, cafes, waiting rooms etc in the area.

  • By focusing in the area you want to work you will save on travelling time and costs too, and get to know your customers.

  • We offer ad design at a tiny fraction of the usual cost. We are very happy to discuss your ad design. We want it to be good too!
  • The advertisers in the magazine tend to be good at what they do, just appearing tells people you are prepared to be judged locally and makes it clear you are not some “fly-by-night”.
  • Because of the great service our advertisers offer, the people in the area have learned to trust the magazine as a source of information.

  • Sometimes it is hard to reconcile yourself to paying for advertising, it can feel as though people should KNOW about you already...but the fact is this is a busy world and people need access to ready information they can rely on. It is generally recommended that people invest 20% of their business in advertising in fact. Healthy businesses advertise, regarding it as much a part of the normal business costs as transport or premises. But with the directory you can use your advertising budget VERY effectively, maybe even reduce it.

  • The prices are deliberately kept low to allow access to all local advertisers – particularly when you think that this includes delivery in a magazine that will be read and kept. (Our rates are the best value advertising in the city: the lowest price per thousand.)

  • The magazine is targeted in an area and is likely to produce work within that vicinity and so you may save time and costs when giving estimates and time scheduling in general.

  • if your business has premises then the people MOST likely to use you are the people who would find it easy to get to.
