7 Major Points Why Magazine Advertising Works!

1. Target a captive audience

Our readers are incredibly proud and passionate about where they live. Our local magazines offer a sense of community and serve as an important ‘hub’ where locals can learn about their surroundings… including your products and services!

2. Make sure your ads stand out

Do not fall for the myth that ‘print’ is dead. In an age where the online space has a sea of digital ads, your local magazine has far less competition. Thus enabling you to stand out from the crowd!

3. Enable sense of security

Web surfers have become weary of clicking on banner ads. Even if they are enticing, they feel there is a lack of security online. With our print magazines the consumer has nothing to fear. This makes your audience more receptive to your message!

4. Longer shelf life 

While digital ads come and go, print ads have staying power! Our magazines are read countless times. Your advert can be strategically placed to maximise your promotion! Our magazines are placed directly in the hands of your local consumer through door to door distribution. They are also available at large retail outlets with high foot traffic!

5. Brand recognition & loyalty

Advertising in reputable local magazines like ours allows local people to become familiar with your business. In the long run this encourages brand loyalty and recommendation to others!

6. Credibility

Our local magazines are valued and respected publications that build a sense of community among local consumers. As an advertiser, you benefit from this credibility as your ads become much more than ‘just an ad’, they become recommendations from a trusted source.

7. Tactile experience

Did you know that the average reader only spends 15 seconds on a website before moving on? People interact differently with our print magazines, they take their time and linger. This means they fully interact with our content including your ad!

Why you should consider using a leasing broker for your vehicle procurement needs

One of the main benefits of using us (Dorset Car/Van Leasing) is that unlike dealerships we are fully independent; which means we can supply and advise on any make and model of car or van. 

This not only allows us to offer independent advice based on our years of knowledge within the industry, but we also have access to the best stock available at the best prices from the funders we have available to us.

We can do all the hard work for you; we’ll discuss your requirements both now and for the future to ensure you have the most suitable vehicle(s) for your needs. It saves you having to endlessly search through comparison sites and running back and forth from dealerships.

We are members of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) and therefore adhere to the mandatory Code of Conduct which is there to ensure you benefit from the highest standards of service, fair terms and conditions as well as transparent and accurate information.

We genuinely care about our local reputation and providing the best levels of service to our customers. Much of the feedback we receive, is along the lines of how pleased our clients have been, when we have challenged their initial thoughts on a vehicle they were enquiring about. 

Quite often we sourced a more appropriate vehicle (which they did not initially think about), or a different model within the range which generated a financial saving. 

Alternatively, we can of course, just act on your original instruction and probably still find you the best deal. 

Even if you have already been in to a local dealership and chosen your vehicle, it’s worth giving us a quick call as the chances are we could improve on what you have been offered. 

On the rare occasion that this is not the case, at least you will have benefitted from ‘another pair of eyes’ and if the deal you have been offered can’t be bettered, we’ll not hesitate to tell you.

Please contact FBN member Dorset Car/Van Leasing by phone or e-mail and we will be pleased to chat, discuss your requirements and offer our knowledge to ensure you end up with the most suitable vehicle for your needs.
