Local area (multiple post codes) monthly publication



Successful multi ‘monthly publication’ business requiring minimal input from the owner. These ‘guides’ (covering 2 post codes) reach an estimated 44,000 readers per month with a very loyal advertiser base

Location Summary

These publications have been providing 2 north Brisbane suburbs with great local stories, updates and features for a number of years. Content is split circa 50/50 between features and adverts. This has proven popular with local business owners with a large number having supported the publications for a number of years. There is little competition in this space and each publication has further room for growth.

Body of advert

Local businesses face a real dilemma when it comes to promoting their business; mass advertising has become more expensive, more fragmented, less predictable and less laser guided when it comes to reaching the target audience.

This business model has successfully claimed a real gap in the market by offering local business owners a targeted audience, constantly communicated to, at a price that all business owners can afford.

The operational platform of this business means the owner has an excellent work/life balance. The business does not relay on the owner as it has long term relationships with specialist contracted professionals (international and local contractors). All per-work scoping, work allocation, print through to distribution is controlled by these external contractors.
