YOUR COMPLETE A TO Z OF
LONDON 21st CENTURY London in the second decade of the twenty-first century. Sprawling, massive, vibrant, multi-cultural, world-class, aspirational, inspirational, inclusive, forward-looking. And divided. Two cities within one. Two contrasting halves that make the whole. To truly understand London, to effectively cover the capital city, a media schedule needs to reflect this. There is a need to get under the skin of London, see the people and the geography in the cold light of day, in order to make an effective commercial judgement that meets the objectives of the advertiser. We understand London, and we believe London@Home delivers a very specific audience, in a very specific manner, with maximum cut-through and minimal wastage. The two halves are outer and inner. It is a simple divide, that reveals two worldâ€™s, poles apart. The key to effectively delivering a London audience for an advertiser, lies in recognising that there isnâ€™t one London audience.....

mass market (outer) / niche market (inner)
London@Home delivers outer Londoners. A mass-market that most ad campaigns will seek to reach. Suburbanites, home-makers, people with roots in their local communities, that care about where they live because for them, life is lived locally. The seemingly universal target market â€“ ABC1s. Inner London represents two extremes. The rich and the poor. Think Chelsea, Kensington, and then think Newham and Tower Hamlets. Social grade A and social grades DE in abundance. It may not be quite as black and white as this, nothing ever is. But the evidence, whether you favour census data, Mosaic profiling or something else, is clear and compelling.
COMMUTER NEWSPAPERS MOBILE
The London media landscape is bustling, highly-populated, and noisy. Different media play different roles and have different impacts on the London population. How highly we consume the media that confronts us, depends on where we consume it, and the nature of the media in question. This is our perception of media consumption in London, we think local media’s USP is clear. Consumed in the home, not easily discarded or ignored, with unique local content that the reader cannot get elsewhere. It’s why it proudly sits away from the pack. What’s your view?
COMMUTER NEWSPAPERS MOBILE SOCIAL MEDIA
Londoners are bombarded with ad images, messages, offers, brands and loads more besides on a daily basis. We are constantly consuming advertising to one degree or another, consciously, sub-consciously, and for varying time scales. The brain processes whether or not an ad is relevant or of interest to us in around 0.3 seconds. How highly we actually engage with the media we consume depends on various factors, but key among them are whether we have chosen to consume that media, or are simply confronted by it, and the environment in which we consume. Do we have time to digest, and act upon what we see? Again, this is our take on the engagement landscape, whatâ€™s your take on it?
L@H delivers outer London. 27 titles, 15 websites and over 1.5 million readers. Living beyond tube zone 2, in clean, green communities. Maximum targeted cut-through and engagement, minimum wastage. People that may well consume commuter media in inner London on cramped tubes and buses, but who then go home. Thatâ€™s where L@H comes into its own.
