Where is Discover delivered?
Discover Magazines has the largest coverage under one title – 186,000 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 185,000 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 should they need it. Our readers are regular, loyal readers who turn to Discover for local businesses because they can feel they can trust our advertisers.
Why do readers love Discover?
Because it’s a real magazine with lots to read, entertain, and inform them. And it’s a handy source of local businesses to call on when needed. At least every copy has 50% editorial and the remaining pages are either local advertisers or non-advertising content such as editors 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 properties every other month— a total circulation of 186,000 homes. 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 importnat to emphasis that both methods involve GPS tracking; both the postal workers and our distributors
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, every month, is two frequent and 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 size so you get a size that most closely matches a) what you need and b) within budget. Getting the right size is like a Goldilocks moment; not too big, not too small. It needs to be just right!
