We contacted Margate Mercury to see if they would help us to promote one of our upcoming fruit growing courses, their response was swift and really accommodating. We had a fantastic take up from a simple bit of community advertising, thank you very much!

Our first advert in the Margate Mercury was in the spring of 2018 and we haven’t looked back. Whilst so many print publications have sadly fallen by the wayside, the Mercury continues to be a shining example of what’s possible in terms of editorial, photography and purpose. We have had work through our advert but our main reason for advertising is to show our support for the Mercury and the manner in which it draws our local community together.

Bubble have advertised within all Brightside Publications magazines for over a year now to predominately increase brand awareness locally. The publications offer a key target audience for us and in turn have seen an increase in local enquiries and web searches since we started advertising.

The Margate Mercury and its partner publications are aesthetically appealing for anyone who appreciates good design. Their content has a focus on promoting creative people and businesses. The magazines are also distributed in important locations for the target audience we wanted to talk to e.g. coffee shops, yoga studios, independent stores. After 4 months of advertising, during a difficult time with lockdown interrupting newspaper distribution, our nursery school which opened in September is now full. We have limited places left for Reception next year. Working with the group is very easy and the team are a joy to work with.

It can usually be difficult to understand how well advertising works, so when clients say they saw my ad in the Ramsgate Recorder, it's great to know it's working.

I placed a quarter page in the Winter Issue of the Margate Mercury for my new business offering swimming lessons. The magazine has been out for just 3 days and I have already had 2 enquiries, so that's such a good start. It's often difficult to track advertising response, especially with print, but this is absolute proof that the Margate Mercury delivers.

This weekend I had someone, who had spotted my advert in the Deal Despatch, who then attended a workshop. So, I have benefitted from advertising and no doubt will do again.

Advertising with you has been a very positive relationship. We feel that supporting your publication is a positive spotlight on our town.
