What is the layout of the advert?

The adverts generally follow a standard layout. The company name at the top of the advert followed by a desciption of your companies services. Then a company logo (optional) followed by the address and contact details of your company. This layout is proven to be most effective.

  • (TIP) When a potential customer is browsing the magazine in search of a builder for example, a very clear title such as, "Bobs Builders, we can build anything" will be far more effective than something obscure such as "do you need some building doing".

    Front cover (Our title then logo followed by a paragraph explaining what the magazine is.)

    Advertisments. (The main section of the magazine containing all the advertisements arranged in alphabetical order within each business type.)

Please remember that we actually put 2000 magazines though the letterbox of local people. Many similar publications will leave piles of their magazine in "pick up points".
