FAQs

Does advertising work?

Yes. Advertising your services can make a big difference to your business.

Think about your ideal customer – are they local so you don’t have to waste time and money travelling to other parts of London? Do they have an income which means they can use your services? Will they prefer sitting down to read an interesting local publication rather than spending ages looking through directory websites? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then Living In Richmond, Kew & East Twickenham and Living In Barnes, East Sheen & West Putney is the right place for you to advertise.

I only have a small budget – what size advert should I go for?

If you have a small budget, it is always better to go for a smaller size advert, but advertise for longer. I always advise going for a small ad in 2-4 issues rather than splashing out on one big ad and then disappearing. People have to keep seeing your name to know that you’re out there.

How much will it cost?

This depends on what size advert you would like to go for (1/8pg, 1/4pg, 1/2pg, full or premium page), how long you would like to advertise for and whether you would like to go into one edition or both. There are lots of options, so just call or email and we can chat about what would work best for you and your budget: 020 8878 1890 / pippa@livinginmagazines.co.uk

Do I have to pay all in one go?

No. While payment for the first issue is always upfront, you can then pay monthly to help ease cash flow and spread the cost. A standing order or BACS payment can be set up for regular payments. Easy.

Can you design my advert?

Yes. You can have your advert professionally designed for just £15-£20 + VAT.

How do you distribute the magazines?

I use a great team who deliver the magazines directly into homes and businesses for me. They also drop off a number of copies to local libraries, estate agents and shops etc.

How often are the magazines delivered?

The magazines are printed every two months and delivered roughly a month apart to two different areas per magazine. This means you can reach 14,000 homes per magazine. The split distribution means calls are spread out over the two-month cycle. Total distribution is 28,000 over the two-month period.

How do I know if the magazines will work for my business?

The majority of the businesses in the magazines are repeat advertisers. This means they’ve renewed their advertising because it really works for them. Much of the rest is made up of special event or seasonal advertising. Please look at the Who We’ve Helped page to read what other businesses say!
