Why advertise with us?
Why advertise your business in our Big Little Magazines? Quite simply, it works. If you want to win new customers, increase your profits and beat the competition, then advertising in our community magazines can help.
Big Little Magazines attract both large and small businesses who want the right publication to promote their services. With costs kept low to offer great value advertising, smaller companies – especially those without a ‘shop front’ – can promote their services in a quality publication to the people who really want to use them – the locals. The cost of advertising compared with local newspapers and not-so-local A4 magazines is small, meaning your business can afford to have a sustained marketing campaign over several months, giving you more exposure and the best response.
Some great reasons to say yes!
Targeted audience – The magazines are delivered to 9,000 selected homes and businesses in our area, which means you can target 9,000 locals and an estimated readership of over 22,500.
Great value – Prices are kept low so that you can make the most of your advertising budget and appear across a number of issues. Research shows a sustained campaign works better at increasing sales than one-off advertising.
Personal service – We care about your business. As a small business ourselves, we know the value of customer service. From your initial enquiry, we can help you to decide on the best size ad for your business and, according to your budget, create a fabulous and eye-catching advert.
Results – We want the magazines to work for you, so we’ll do our best to make sure you get the most out of your advertising. Around 80% of the businesses in our magazines are repeat advertisers and some have been in every issue since 2005 – proof that our family of magazines really are working for them.
A great read – The magazines contain great home-grown content like articles, regular columns, interviews, What's On listings and useful local information as well as being the source for finding reputable local businesses. This, along with their handy A5 size, means that local residents hold onto the magazines until the next issue arrives so that adverts are seen again and again.
