Response Focussed Advertising for our Regulars

Most of our customers advertise in Discover to generate new customers and they want a steady stream so they go “regular”; they start with a six month booking and continue for years … because it works. If you haven’t advertised before it’s tempting to test the waters with one month but we really don’t recommend that; it’s false economy unless you are advertising an event. The 6m+ Ongoing Rate offers 15% discount, free upgrade to premium positions, advert design and guaranteed editorial and discounts on leaflet distribution.

Looking After the Little Guys

Starting a yoga class, opening a shop or any startups, sole traders, owner operated business we’re here to help. More often than not they have all the passion and drive to succeed but very little marketing budget.  Discover supports the “Stay Local” campaign by offering a range of low budget options. We also give honest, constructive advice on effective ad design, pitfalls to avoid and complimentary editorial to boost their local profile. Also, ask about meeting the criteria for our Low Cost Business Start Up Package.

Branching Out. Going Big.

Most businesses choose to advertise in their local edition plus the surrounding ones; four editions is the most commonly number booked. You can add editions later, trial new areas or drop one according to their needs.  That’s the beauty of our 8 edition circulation.  We have a number of regular customers who book them all for full coverage and maximum discount of 45%.

Stand Out from the Crowd with Premium Positions

Starting a yoga class, opening a shop or any startups, sole traders, owner operated business we’re here to help. More often than not they have all the passion and drive to succeed but very little marketing budget.  Discover supports the “Stay Local” campaign by offering a range of low budget options. We also give honest, constructive advice on effective ad design, pitfalls to avoid and complimentary editorial to boost their local profile.

When Short Term Advertising is the Right Choice

Repeat, repeat, repeat.  That is the mantra for successful advertising.  However, advertising a dated event, like a festival, needs a different approach; a short term campaign spread across multi media (rather than long term campaign in selected media).  Events, launches, announcements are ideal for short term advertising in Discover to hit a large audience. 

Leaflets – an Alternative to Display Advertising

An A5 four page leaflet inserted in the magazine and letterbox delivered is sometimes a very cost effective alternative to display advertising.  You can choose from a selection of quantities from 4,000 – 106,000 home. Each delivery  only takes up to 5 leaflets. Service not available in all areas. We offer a) design, print and delivery b) print and delivery or c) delivery only. Find out more…

Choose the Right Size for You

Size does matter as it’s all about perception. If your advert is too big you might be perceived as expensive, too small and you could be viewed as not worthy of the customer’s money. We offer many sizes to get it just right for your business type, your budget and your expectations.  We’ll advise you if you aren’t sure. 

The Golden Question – What Does it Cost to Advertise?

Each advert size has a rate card price (before discount).  We offer two discounts separately and added together:

(1) up to 30% depending on how many areas you book and
(2) up to 15% depending on how long you commit to

 

With 8 local editions, 11 advert sizes and 4 booking periods there are hundreds of permutations so we’ve made it easy with an online cost calculator – unique to Discover. More ….
