Distribution of both Island Life and Islander is crucial to their success. It’s not just a case of having thousands of local readers picking up the magazines – we also carefully plan our distribution to ensure that they both reach the right target audience. Both magazines come free of charge, but we are extremely selective about where we place copies.
We have 15 years of experience distributing magazines across the Island, we have established the best and most suitable outlets to reach the type of reader that each magazine aims to attract.
And because we carefully monitor our distribution right down to the last copy, we are proud to say that we have never had returned copies of the magazines – which is great news for our advertisers!
The magazines are distributed throughout the Isle of Wight via newsagents, selected major supermarkets, small businesses, pubs and restaurants, hairdressing and beauty salons, doctor and dentist surgeries, as well as Hovertravel ports, and visitor centres.
Because we produce glossy lifestyle magazines, we love to promote local businesses. We realise that today’s challenging marketplace makes it more important than ever for businesses to budget wisely – but advertising remains one of those necessary expenditures.
While it’s sometimes difficult to monitor the precise effect of your advertising, we strive to be as fair as possible with advertisers and pride ourselves on offering real service and value for money. If you advertise with us, you can be assured we will do all we can to promote your business by way of features and editorials.
Our advertising is affordable, even for the smallest of businesses. While advertising in quality glossy magazines would normally be way out of reach for most small firms, that’s not the case with Island Life or Islander. We strive to promote micro enterprises and family concerns, and have developed pricing structures that are affordable on even the smallest of advertising budgets.
