It saddens me when someone has expressed an interest in advertising with us, then, when we follow up the enquiry, they say they were tempted by a seemingly fantastic offer from a ‘local’ large, paid for glossy, sometimes doing a ‘special feature’ on one village or town. They are often then disappointed because their advert ends up in one issue, with hundreds of other similar adverts, in a magazine with a relatively small circulation, but they have blown their budget for the year.
Here at INSIDE, we don’t have sales staff trying to persuade you to spend your hard-earned cash on a one-off feature. In fact, if someone enquires about placing a one-off, full page in all our titles, we do our best to persuade them away from that, to a smaller, more affordable advert for a series of at least three adverts. Why spend all your money on one advert? It’s proven that the more times people see your advert, the more impact it will have, and they are far more likely to recognise you as a trustworthy, established business.
A large proportion of our advertisers feature in our magazines on a continuous basis because it’s affordable and it works. You have the choice of advertising in just one of our titles, all six, or anything in between. There’s a discount package for booking ahead for three or six months, plus further discounts for three or more titles.
So, if you’d like to feature in INSIDE, pick up the phone or drop us an email – we go out of our way to be helpful and only recommend what we think will work for you. And if you assume we’ll be too expensive there’s only one way to find out – hopefully you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
