The Advertiser

The Advertiser magazine is an A5 full colour glossy magazine, bursting with adverts, features and local interest stories.

Advertising with us really does work – not only does it generate new business leads but it also raises awareness of your products and services within the local community. Take a look at our competitive prices and advert options and you’ll see what great value The Advertiser offers compared to other marketing methods such as direct mail, e-marketing and radio advertising.

Our readers tell us that they enjoy receiving The Advertiser because of the mix of advertising, editorial and information it contains and advertisers’ testimonials demonstrate the impact that featuring in the magazines has.

The Advertiser won’t be thrown away each week like a local newspaper. People will keep it as a reference for the whole month and its convenient A5 format means it can be kept next to the phone.

If you don’t already have an advert to place in the publication, our dedicated team of graphic designers can work with you to create an advert that meets your marketing objectives and will make you stand out from the crowd.
