BUT SURELY IT REQUIRES A BIG BUDGET?
No, Not At All.
You just need to consider where is best to invest your time and energy to get the greatest return from your marketing efforts. We find the 3 M’s are useful way to help determine what you need:
Who’s Your MARKET?
Who is your product or service aimed at? In other words, who do you want to buy what you’re selling? Building up a clear and detailed picture of who you’re targeting is the vital first step before you decide anything else.
What’s Your MESSAGE?
Once you’ve defined who you want to do business with, you need to understand what you want to SAY to them. What’s your message? You’ll want to communicate who you are and what you do and the benefits of your product/service to your target market.
What’s The Best MEDIA For Your MARKET And MESSAGE?
Once you’ve got your market and message sorted, then and only then should you be thinking about the media you use to target the right people with your message.
TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR HAPPY ADVERTISERS
PRINT ADVERTISING WORKS!
The Proof Is In The Pudding
This is born out by the high proportion of our repeat advertisers (approx 80%) booking advertising space and leaflet drops with Local Life Mags.
Print advertising consistently achieves a higher level of engagement than social or digital. The numbers reached may be smaller, but the quality of leads is far better.
Within modern society we are more likely to filter out a high degree of the digital content we consume. A print publication has only so many pages, with limited content on each page, so adverts have a better chance of being noticed and remembered. Our printed magazines are usually kept until the next edition is delivered.
Organisations such as Royal Mail and the Data & Marketing Association agree. Print is not dead!
REACH YOUR TARGET CUSTOMERS
If your business covers a particular geographical area, then local magazines offer the ideal way to speak directly to your potential customers. Readers of local magazines are likely to be involved in their local community and interested in supporting local businesses. Growing your local customer base and strengthening community links make good business sense!
Speak To A Receptive Audience
What better way is there to reach potential new customers than when they are relaxing in their own home, perhaps with a drink, flicking through their local magazine? There is no competition or distraction: readers do so by choice and that’s a great opportunity for advertisers.
Win Trust By Association
Many local magazines have been established for a number of years and have earned a good reputation within the communities they serve. Readers trust their local magazine as a source of useful information, so they are more likely to trust the advertisers featured. Whilst some may hesitate over engaging online, there’s no risk in making a call or sending an email.
More Opportunities To Be Seen
Local magazines have more staying power than online advertising, which is ‘in the moment’. A magazine might stay on a coffee table, in an office or café for weeks, or until the next edition is published. It might be flicked through on different occasions and shared with family and friends – all of which gives greater visibility to your advert. Any marketing activity benefits from multiple opportunities to be seen, increasing the interest of potential customers until they are ready to buy from you.
Local Life Magazines also offer the opportunity to book a campaign over several issues, enabling you to build brand recognition and demonstrate your expertise over time. Call today on 01279 793 723
