Benefits to advertisers

  • It works. The Directory does work and most advertisers appear month after month because the Directory works and generates business for them. “Just to let you know I’ve already booked four new clients within one week of distribution” MK
  • Price. The Directory represents incredible value if your target market includes the residents of Shoreham and Southwick. It costs a fraction of the price it costs to advertise in other publications.
  • It is truly local. All advertisers operate in or close to the Shoreham and Southwick area. We make efforts to give the directory a local feel by including local events and activities for free as well as community news.
  • Longevity. It has 'longevity' and because of it's size, content, look and feel it will be kept by the majority of households until the next issue arrives, thereby giving advertisers 'immediacy of access' when advertisers services are required. It also features a local diary of events to encourage householders to hold onto their directory.
  • No VAT. The price you see is the price you pay. This is because we are a small independently run business.
  • Quality. The Directory has a very high standard of print and production . All art work is professionally finished to ensure that you look your best and that your company is proud to be featured and associated with a high quality publication.
  • Editorial opportunities. Opportunity for local businesses to be featured in their own two page editorial spread. This gives them a depth of coverage that is normally only available at huge expense in other publications.

Our magazines are delivered to over 10,000 homes in Shoreham, including Shoreham Beach, and Southwick throughout the year and you can also find additional copies in the libraries community centres. We deliver 12 months of the year.
