Don't believe us, believe our customers, here's what they say!
Advertising in Your Local Lincs magazine has been an essential part of our marketing strategy in opening up a new Sleaford business. Response from advertising was almost immediate and played a vital part in getting us noticed in the area. The Accounts team were very flexible and helpful with their advice throughout the process.
I couldn’t be happier, I launched my new craft business with Local Lincs at the start of 2021, and within the first 3 months of adverting it generated direct custom that paid for the whole 12 month package!
I would definitely recommend a full page to help a customer understand what you offer as a business, as I found as a niche craft business it has been invaluable to help my customers understand better what I can offer, and even attract those who would not have thought of using my craft skills before.
The team at Local Lincs are fantastic and will help to identify best placement for your advertising, advise on font and picture sizes so that your advert can be seen. They will also advise the best advertising timings through the year so you can maximise your advertising package with them.
Every time I speak to customers they say they got my number from this magazine!
The advertising is working really well in the Local Lincs Magazine!

If you are an owner of a small business, marketing and customer service are the keys to success. We’ve all heard of the old customer service adage ‘the customer is always right’ there are some famous advertising sayings too. Celebrated professor, author and researcher Professor Jef Richards has devoted his career to advancing the understanding marketing and advertising he says:
“Creative without strategy is called ‘art.’ Creative with strategy is called ‘advertising.”
David Ogilvy is known as the father of advertising. Ogilvy’s ideas on marketing are as true now as they were when he founded Ogilvy & Mather back in 1948. “Never stop testing, and your advertising will never stop improving.” This means that when you advertise you should always weigh your responses. Ask all your callers how they heard about you, ask them how you can improve. Take time to analyse what your customers want from you.
Your customer base and mailing list is gold, make sure you have allocated a large part of your marketing budget to advertise to your existing customers. Give them added value, surprise them with offers and discounts and extra things for free. For example here at Your Local Lincs Magazine we like to give our regular advertisers free space to do a feature about their specialist subject.
The basic rule to marketing and advertising is still PLAN - DO - REVIEW!
