Advertising

30 years of advertising local businesses

With its distinctive logo and cheerful colour scheme, The Advertiser has been a feature of life in Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham since 1988. So, 2018 marks our 30th anniversary! Local people read The Advertiser for the For Sale/Wanted ads, the community information – but mostly to find the services and products they need.

WHO READS FREE PRINTED PAPERS?

The Advertiser is familiar, engaging and conveniently delivered directly to homes and businesses. It’s a welcome alternative to looking through countless web pages. The responses advertisers get is demonstrated in their continued support of the publication, which regularly publishes between 40 to 48 pages each month.

Printed matter still holds an important role in communication. Readers like an easily-navigable publication, where they know a service they want locally will be listed.

For our advertisers, we’re simply the most direct way of connecting their business with potential customers. The Advertiser is distributed to 9,000 homes in Royal Wootton Bassett, Hook, Greenhill, Greatfield, Broad Town, Tockenham, Bushton, Clyffe Pypard, Lyneham, Goatacre and Bradenstoke. A further 200 copies are available at many distribution points.

From August 2016, The Advertiser has been supplied to the HIVE on the MOD base. It is distributed across the base, allowing approximately 1500 trainees to learn about local services and the local area. The Advertiser has also been available in Lyneham’s shops, takeaways and the library since 2013. There is also a house-to-house distribution which covers just under 1000 households in Lyneham.

OUR LOYAL ADVERTISERS

Many of our advertisers have been with us since the very first issue. We hope you agree that says something about the effectiveness of the publication. The Advertiser was set up by a local and continues today to be run by a local, established business that is experienced in publishing.

The Advertiser continues to go from strength to strength, with new features and an expanding distribution network. The new website means that advertisers can get the best of both worlds, benefiting from print and digital versions to reach their customers.
