Why advertise with us?

Why advertise your business in Living In Magazines? Quite simply, it works. If you want to win new customers, increase your profits and beat the competition, then advertising in Living In Magazines can help.

Living In Magazines attracts 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’ – are able to promote their services in a quality publication to the people who really want to use them – the locals. The cost to advertise compared with local newspapers and not-so-local A4 magazines is small, meaning businesses can afford to have a sustained marketing campaign over a number of months, giving them the best response.

Some great reasons to say yes!

Targeted audience – The magazines are delivered to 14,000 selected homes and businesses in each area, which means you can target 28,000 locals and an estimated readership of 68,000.

Great value – Prices are kept low so that small businesses such as yours can make the most of your advertising budget and appear over a number of issues. Research shows a sustained campaign works better at increasing sales than one-off ads.

Personal service – We care about your business. As a small business ourselves, we know how important customer service is. From your initial enquiry we can help you to decide on the best sized ad for your business and according to your budget, create a fabulous and eye-catching advert and even offer free editorial to help back up your marketing campaign.

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 the magazines are repeat advertisers and some have been in every issue since 2006 – proof that the magazines really are working for them. Please read Who We’ve Helped for great testimonials.

A great read – The magazines contain great articles, useful local information and listings of local events, as well as being the source for finding reputable local businesses. This, along with their handy A5 size, means that residents hold onto the magazines until the next issue arrives, so that adverts are seen again and again.
