We deliver mainly to ABC1 profile, owner occupied properties (higher than average income, 3+ bedrooms, driveway and a garden). We are also the only magazine to deliver into rural areas such as the New Forest, Meon Valley, Test Valley by using Royal Mail. In urban areas, we don't deliver to flats (due to difficult access) nor areas with a high percentage of rental properties.

Yes, every copy we print is delivered either by our own delivery team or Royal Mail. If you've not seen Discover then it's possible you don't live in one of the selected streets in our circulation.

Local residents like to receive a local magazine relevant to them so we publish 13 versions of Discover (we call Editions). Each edition is tailored for these areas: Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, Hamble, Hedge End, Locks Heath, Meon Valley, New Forest, Romsey, Salisbury East Villages, Southampton, Test Valley, Waterside and Winchester. You can advertise in just one, a selection or all of them. The more in a booking the higher the discount.

Yes, in batches from 4,000 up to 90,000 - but not in all the editions. We design, print and deliver, too.

The job of your advert is threefold; to prompt an enquiry, to direct potential customers to your website and to raise general awareness of your business so other marketing activities work better. We've helped literally hundreds of local businesses grow their business and many of our regular advertisers rely on Discover to feed the ever hungry pipeline of new customers. New customers are the lifeblood of most businesses. One new customers can introduce you to dozens more ... for free!

Ah, the million dollar question! If your advert is well designed, is the appropriate size (big is not always best) and included in the right editions then yes, it should. Success is notably higher if readers see your advert three times; repeat, repeat, repeat is the mantra for successful advertising. We offer professional ad design and our experience of what works and what doesn't is freely given.... and yes, we have turned business away if we believe it's unlikely to reap benefits for the client.

We're friendly, local and happy to help you choose what advert size best suits you, where to advertise and any other marketing advice you need. Everything you need is in this website or visit our DOWNLOADS PAGE for a media pack or if you want a price use REQUEST A MEDIA PACK.

Call Melanie on 023 8027 6396 or 07900 307636 for an Instant Quotation and Advice (honest, constructive advice .... we don't employ pushy, commission focused sales people).

We look forward to welcoming you to Discover!
