Why Advertise? We will explain why this is a great marketing platform

• LINK-MAG is run by local people with good local knowledge and has an ethos of helping businesses have access to a cost effective and good quality advertising media, that hits more doors than any other local media. • The magazines are designed to focus on each local area so the reader identifies the strong individually branded product and see it as their local magazine. Each issue has a professional photograph on the cover peculiar to the targeted area making it easily identifiable when compared to other media. • The magazine also has a balance of editorial and useful information from competitions, useful numbers, what’s on guides and much more. This gives it a longer shelf-life and our customers a good response on their advertising. • LINK-MAG can also be viewed online in full colour and they are emailed out to our database each month as well as several thousand online page views. • LINK-MAG offers the flexibility of targeting your local areas as well as adding other areas to spread your distribution. This allows small and larger companies to use LINK-MAG just as effectively with a variety of flexible options. • Build your business locally around where you live so you’re not travelling so far, saving hours and money. • Advertise from just £20 for a month. • LINK-MAG also offer leaflet distributed in association with the magazine only, with prices from around £25 per 1000
