Customer Testimonials

Thank you so much for the fantastic work you have done, I just love the art work and colours. You made the whole process so easy, for someone who was struggling. Thanks so much I will recommend you to others.

Pauline Rainey

Specialist Complex Injury Manager , Proactiv Rehabilitation & Reintegration Services

Just to say thank you very much for all your good work in getting our new website up and running.
I know you have both put the hours in and you have produced for us a fantastic, professional and up to date website which we are more than happy with as it exceeded our expectations. The design looks good and is easy to use.

Nothing was too much trouble for you and we now look forward to starting to get enquiries directly from the new website.
Feel free to use any/all of these comments as you see fit.

Thanks also for the tutorial. I am working my way through it and have uploaded some photos and changed a bit of text without anything catching fire – so far!

Paul Howell

Proprietor, Central London Flat

Would highly recommend using Mandy and Mark to everyone, they were very quick and helpful in designing our fantastic website   we would defiantly use them again. Thanks!

Ashlea Woolfe

Owner , Woolfies Travelling Den

I used local life magazine for the design of my business website, stationary (business cards/leaflets) and adverts together with their subsequent production. The results were excellent with first class service from start to finish. Thanks for all your help.

Martin Stedman

Owner, Martin Stedman Oven Cleaning

The January 2016 leaflet drop was a huge success. I had 14 new members at my class yesterday and 8 of them came with a leaflet. Thank you for your patience, I know I changed the details a number of times and you never shouted at me once.

Will be back again for the Easter campaign. This time it should be much easier as the details will remain the same. Thanks again, Tess.

Tess Payne

Consultant, Slimming World

Everything on the website looks perfect and the business cards are exactly how I wanted them. Advert for Local Life magazine is just what I wanted. Thanks guys for all your help. Looking forward to the up coming leaflet campaign next week.

Debbie Rogers

Kind Regards

Hi Mark
Just thought I'd let you know I've had really positive feedback on the website. Quirky, fun and different from any thing else I've seen are just some of the comments. Thanks again for putting it together.

Donna Chamberlain

Artist, Donna Chamberlain Gallery

Thank you for a very successful campaign! Advertising is critical to ensure word gets around but the cost in big publications is prohibitive, so having been introduced to you, I thought it worth a go. You did a fab job with the advert for us and we ran the first month. We knew, it takes a few adverts to make it happen, so as expected, didn't get a rush through the doors on the first month. The second advert was tweaked a bit we ran it again. All I can say is “WOW”, changing to a full page advert as been amazing. We have now booked for the next 12 editions. Thank you for your great little mag.

Another thank you for our website and the SEO magic you worked !! Highly recommended.

Tony Lamb

Owner, ARL Upholstery

Hi Mark,
Can't thank you enough, it's absolutely brilliant, you're a true professional. Once again, thanks so much.

Neil M

Director, Kustom Security

Great ladies to work with at Local Life. Amy was so patient with me designing the advert and getting our company colours spot on. I can't recommend the team and Local Life enough – 5 stars all the way!! Average Joes Gym have used Local Life for over 12 months now and our membership is growing steadily due to the advertising campaign. We're staying forever! Best of luck in the future Rich.

Richard P

Manager, Average Joes Gym

Dear Mandy

Kim Marder

Owner, Kims Foot Health Care

We have advertised in Local Life Broxbourne for 8 months now and are very happy with the service we receive.
We would highly recommend Local Life.

John J

Owner, JJ's Sandwich Bar

As a small business owner good marketing strategies are high on the agenda for me. I promote and advertise my business in a number of different ways but I always get the most amount of enquires from Local Life Mags. I initially started with Local Life Broxbourne and am now to be advertising in the Ware & Hertford. Highly recommended!

Sally Howard

Owner, Sallys Kitchen

Great little mag. The first job I got after advertising in Local Life Broxbourne more than covered the cost of advertising for the whole year. Just booked for my 4th year. Wonderful people to deal with.

Trish Mahon

Owner, Sew Simple Creations

After advertising with Local Life for the first 8 editions I received more enquires than any other avenue I have advertised with. I decided to double my advert size and have booked for the entire year.

John Petrucci

Owner, Petrucci Mobile Pizzeria

I'm sure you will be pleased to know that within 7 days of you distributing the magazine I had 6 enquiries, all of which are now new customers. Subsequently I have had 14 further enquiries.
When I called on the customers, each one delved into the kitchen drawer for their copy of the magazine. This portrays the image the magazine is ‘keepable' and a continuing source of reference.
From a business point of view, the response already received has justified the decision to advertise in Local Life Broxbourne magazine on a permanent basis. I await the magazines expansion to other areas. Thank you and good luck

Brian Mathews

Owner, Wicked Wheels

WOW!! I can't praise you guys enough. What an awesome job you have done designing my company branding, the new website, business cards, letterheads, logo etc Looks great and on top of this you're getting me new customers both through the website and through leaflets. I have recommended you to all my friends and family. You are highly recommended Thank you all very much!

Micheal Moy

The best advertising I have ever done – I cant praise it enough.

Sue H

Owner, Zumba Fitness (Cheshunt)

Thank you for all your help over the pat few months. I have found advertising with you a huge benefit to a small business such as mine, unable to afford advertising in newspapers and larger glossy magazines dominated by large companies. We have gained many new customers who never knew we existed. You have proved your publication is kept because new customers come through the door clutching it in their hands. Thank you Terry

Terry Whitbread

Owner, My Time Beauty

I am amazed at the number of people who visited our shop actually clutching their copy of the magazine and I can honestly say it is far more effective advertising than local newspapers. I hope you might consider broadening your delivery area in the future and I am sure other advertisers would join me in saying we would definitely be with you.

Louis Micheal

Owner, Tip Top Shoes

A well run business, with lots of help and a great way to advertise my business. Since advertising in your magazine, my customer base has increased hugely. Definitely the best advertising medium I have used. I highly recommend it.

Alan Connolly

Director, Direct Bathrooms

We have been advertising with you for 5 months and we always get a good response. Your service is professional and you can tell a lot of pride taken in publishing each issue. I wanted to write and thank you for all your help and effort with the design and placement of our adverts. You are a pleasure to deal with and make advertising so effortless.
We are very pleased with the enquiries we have received from the advert and look forward to continuing our business relationship with you. Thank you once again.

Alan P

Owner, Broxbourne Station Cars

I just wanted to congratulate you on the advert design you produced for us and the quality of your magazine. I think it your magazine is extremely useful for local contacts and advertising. I have recommended it to several of my business contacts and I am delighted to see in the last issue some of them are now advertising with you. We have had a number of new customers from your publication – Keep up the good work.

Mark S

Owner, IDM Services

Excellent, cost effective way to reach your customers. The Magazine is well read by my customers and their loyalty to advertisers is in my view exceptional. The publication is professional and is never late being distributed. Your team put a huge amount of effort into the publication and will help design the layout for you. A great business, highly recommended.

David A

Owner, Solutions 5

As we are tucked away we need to advertise regularly and normally place an advertisement in one of the local free papers. The results have been astounding! We have had people contact every day since the magazines were distributed. This method has worked for us, the response to this one advert has far outstripped anything we have previously tried – literally!

Carol B

Owner, Office Wizards

I only got a few calls to start with, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I now get more calls from your magazine than I have ever gotten from advertising in papers and you are much cheaper.”

Darren Sladler

Owner, Another Door Closes

“Being new to the area I didn't know who to turn to to get work done so I called DSB from an advert in your magazine. I just thought I'd call and let you know I was so pleased with the work they have done for me and can you please let them know. I keep all my copies of the magazine.”

Linda D

Reader, Local Life Mags

Taking an advertorial has proved highly worthwhile, the differing colour of the pages adds significant impact and the magazine naturally opens at these pages, almost forcing the article to be read.

Carole Morgan

Owner, Calm Carole

By discussing what kind of image I wish to project, I believe Mandy has helped me create an advert which reflects my business. I can not say enough how easy it has been to work with Mandy and the team at Local Life Magazines they have helped increase my image within the local community. Thanks to all of you.

Simon H

Owner, Potters Bar Stores

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how pleased and happy I am with the response we have had since I started advertising with you.

Daniel Bertolene

Owner, Dantech IT solutions

Many thanks for your hard work Mandy and Co. I am really pleased with the positive response I have received from the advert

Dave Bond

Owner, DSB Lofts

Dear Mandy,
I've been getting a great response to my advertisement since advertising in Local Life Broxbourne magazine.

Joe Briley

Owner, Abbotts Wills & Probate

We have advertised for months now in Local Life Broxbourne and have found that it both raises our local profile with existing clients, as well as helping us reach potential new clients in our local area. The magazine looks professional and offers excellent value for money.

Sheila H

Owner, Able & Active Mobility

After advertising with the Local Life Mags, I can report that we have had more positive sales leads in the last few months, than years worth of  Newspapers.

Gavin MacDonald

Owner, Home Entertainment Direct

We extended our advertising budget into Local Life Broxbourne and the decision wasn’t made just on price but from word of mouth via a business colleague who informed us of the success he was having with your magazine.
Since advertising within your magazine we noticed an increase in enquiries. On asking our potential customers where they heard of us most said Local Life Broxbourne. Your magazine equals less cost but more work and more profit/business. Thank

Simon Cordell

Owner, Cordell Maintenance

Great little local mag. It's the only free one I don't chuck in the bin when it comes through the door. Nice looking, well written and doesn't take itself too seriously. Quite classy in it's own way.

Debbie S

Reader, Local Life Mags

What a find!! From the moment the excellent media pack arrived the whole experience of advertising with Local Life Mags was painless.
It made no difference that we are a small business – we were treated as if our business really mattered. I always felt as if the Local Life would be a great vehicle to get to our target market – and so it came to pass. The enquiries duly arrived, and we have already filled our diary for several months. We will certainly use you again. Not just because it is such a pleasure to deal with Mandy ….but because IT WORKS!
