The Big Local Difference
When adverts and mass distribution are the main aim, everyone loses. It negatively impacts readership and provides little value to the advertiser.
Big Local Magazines are monthly publications and act as a local chronicle, as opposed to weekly publications that focus more on breaking news, which is these days best published online. A Big Local community magazine is rich with relevant, topical local news, that aims to inform and educate.
By publishing a monthly news chronicle and covering breaking news online, we put a focus back on providing value to the most important party in a free community publication, the advertiser.
Big Local magazines are distributed via a combination of strategic letterbox drops and commercial distribution points, providing best coverage and allowing us to accurately measure reader engagement.
