My Friend is a community magazine run by a local business for the promotion of other local businesses.
The magazine was started in 2010 in Brampton. Since its launch the magazine has gone from strength to strength and is now a well-established part of the community it serves. Feedback from readers is very positive; there is a great response to the competitions and many advertisers are regulars which attests to the success of marketing with the magazine.
Each issue includes features on local businesses, shopping ideas encouraging readers to ‘shop local’, regular articles and puzzles, plus our directory section ensures people hang on to the magazine for when they need to call on a local business, tradesperson or service.
Occasional advertising may work if you have a specific event or offer, but for most businesses should form part of an ongoing marketing strategy to keep your business in the public eye. My Friend can offer your business great exposure at very reasonable rates which are discounted should you commit to repeat advertising. We also offer expert graphic design assistance to help you develop your brand and create an eye-catching advert at no extra cost. The key is maintaining visibility and keeping a consistent brand and message so people think of you when they need your service.
Our total distribution is 15,000 copies and includes Alconbury, Brampton, Buckden, Cambourne, Elsworth, Fenstanton, Godmanchester, Graveley, Hartford, Hilton, Hinchingbrooke, Houghton, Huntingdon, Stukeley Meadows, The Hemingfords, The Offords, The Stukeleys, Papworth Everard, Sawtry and Yelling.
