Can I change my advert during my contract period?
Yes, although we do not advise you change it too much particularly when the advert is working for you.
Can I switch books / areas at a later date within my contract period?
Yes, although we recommend you spend a minimum of 4 months in any one area before switching. Experience shows us that the longer you are in a specific book the better it works for you.
Can I have editorial space to run with my advert, if so, do I have to pay for it?
Yes, you can and we do not normally make a charge as long as the editorial does not exceed the size of your normal advertising space, unless previously agreed.
What should I include in the editorial?
You can include anything that will help promote your business, i.e. qualifications, special occasions, history, etc. The most effective editorials usually contain at least one genuine customer testimonial.
Do you help write the editorials or do I need to provide it?
We can write the editorial for you although you know your business better than us. Also, we do have a local correspondent (Celia Salter) who, for a nominal fee, will write the editorial on your behalf. In this instance, you will be given a minimum of a full page space.
Can I download a copy of the current community magazines to my PC or Tablet?
