Where is Discover delivered?
Discover Magazines has the widest coverage under one title – 172,000 homes in South Hampshire receive a copy – no other publication or media can deliver this level of targeted marketing. There are 8 delivery zones: each zone has a localised edition of Discover so it’s relevant to the readers in that zone.
Who reads Discover?
Discover Magazines is 100% letterbox delivered to the same 172,000 properties every other month: it’s welcomed, warmly received by most and kept in the kitchen drawer or by the telephone for easy and quick reference. Our readers are regular, loyal readers who turn to Discover for local businesses because they feel they can trust our advertisers.
Why do readers love Discover?
Because it’s a real magazine, full of entertainment and information. And it’s a handy source of local business contact details. Every copy as at least 50% editorial with the remaining pages either local advertisers or non-advertising content such as editor’s letter, advertisers index etc. Discover readers Keep it. Read It. Use it.
How is Discover delivered?
Reliably on time. Every other month.
Discover Magazines is 100% letterbox delivered to the same 172,000 properties every other month. We use two delivery methods; Royal Mail mostly for rural areas and our own distribution team for the easier-to-reach suburbs.
GPS tracked distribution
Approximately 45% of the magazines we print are delivered by our own distribution team. The rest are contracted to Royal Mail to deliver for us. It’s important to emphasis that both Royal Mail postal workers and our own distributors are tracked using GPS.
When is Discover delivered?
6 times a year
Each home receives a new copy at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September and November. We believe, in our experience, that a monthly publication is too frequent and an unneccesary spend for our advertisers.
Leaflet inserts. Yes, we do that, too!
Each magazine delivered by Discover distributors (not Royal Mail) accepts up to 5 non-competing leaflet inserts.
How much does it cost to advertise?
That depends …
We offer a wide range of advert sizes so you get a size that most closely matches a) what you need and b) your budget. Getting the right size is like a Goldilocks moment; not too big, not too small. It needs to be just right!
