Advertiser & Reader Testimonials
Both our books work for advertisers - but don't just take our word for it!
Both of our magazines are long established in the local areas that they serve. As well as being free and delivered straight to our readers (your potential customers!) they are also familiar and trusted within the communities.
They are carefully designed to include local news and views, seasonal articles, puzzles and quizzes which encourages residents to flick through the books, and many keep them as a handy reference directory for when they need to find a particular business or service.
Local businesses perform best when advertising in our magazines. Local trades advertising to homeowners are particularly succesful, for example home improvements, home repair (such as electrical and plumbing), garden and tree services. Any local business such as garages, hotels, shops, florists, hair and beauty salons and cafes can also benefit from a presence in our publications.

"I've had a fantastic response to the advertorial feature. There have been lots of new orders . . . I'm really busy!"
"I've been reading your excellent book for sometime and really enjoy it. The Codeword Quiz I find very brain-teasing, stimulating and taxing. Could you send me some previous issues so that I may do those also? I enclose payment to cover, but if it's not enough, let me know and I'll adjust".

Well done all - including yourselves for putting together the book - and yes, I do have it by the 'phone!"

The book is always by my 'phone just in case! I live in Buxton so I'm outside the WAC Book distribution area - I usually pick up a copy from Roys of Wroxham. Quite a few of my neighbours ask to borrow the WAC Book from me - it's really useful!"
