Getting a lot of jobs from being on front cover – working well!

We are now even looking to take on more staff, largely thanks to your magazine. It really does work for us and the clientele that we aim to attract.

Other than word of mouth, The Advertiser is almost my main means to get the message out.  I think that it is one of the most used publications in Bassett.  I certainly try and get all my traders from these adverts, as I feel if they have lasted in your publication over the years they cannot be that bad.

One of the best advertising boards I have used.

In my 30+ years of service I have used many different advertising boards and magazines to showcase and promote my work. However, none have been as helpful and professional as Sally who really has a passion for promoting good and helpful businesses. Sally was so friendly and helpful when I first spoke to her, and she continues to give great customer service. My ads in the advertiser have always recieved great response rates, and I would recommend them to anyone.

The free buy/sale advertising facility that is provided by the Local Advertiser is excellent. Simple to use, and a great service to the community.

Free notice board. A well run and successful sale board. Sally is pleasant and helpful.

I started to advertise on the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham advertiser last year after a break of a few years. From our very first advert  we have always had a great response, and the work generated from that first advert has more than paid for a full year’s advertising. We continue to get a great return on the adverts and we now also realise that locally there is a section of the community that only use the local Advertiser to source trades people etc.

Thank you for putting the advert in again for me over the past few months. It works really well in generating more customers. Unfortunately I’ll have to cancel my advert as I now have enough business from it for now.

I have been advertising my private art lessons intermittently with Local Ads for several years now, and it never fails to amaze me how much response I get. The word spreads far and wide too. I have several local clients who responded to my advert as well as some who come from Tetbury, Cirencester and the other side of Swindon. This is due to friends or relatives passing on a copy of the advert from the magazine.

I could not be more pleased and have no hesitation in recommending Sally’s advertising magazine.

As a householder I often reference it for work need to be done in my home too. It is a must-read!

I have been dealing with various advertising magazines and papers over my career and cannot recommend ‘The RWB & Lyneham Advertiser’ enough. Sally has been a true professional from the start and continues to impress with her passion for the magazine, the art work and her genuine, nice friendly attitude. I am very happy with the feedback from new customers that the ad generates on a monthly basis. Keep up the good work Sally!

I only advertise in The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser. I gave up the directories like Thompsons and Yellow Pages as I get a lot more enquiries from the Advertiser. I get plenty of work out of it. People like to use a local business and that’s why I advertise in this local magazine.

Dean Saunders HCS (wilts) Ltd

Out of all the advertising we do online and in print The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser brings us the most return for the money we invest in advertising. Locals like to use local companies and refer to the magazine a lot for reference. We have been advertising with the Advertiser for over 20 years.

Paul Ward Autocolour

I’m not able to renew my run of advertising again this time because my advert in your magazine has been SO SUCCESSFUL! Beyond belief actually. I’ve always had a good response before too but I just can’t take on any more work. Thank you. I’ll be in touch.

Brian Jones Property Maintenance

We have tried all kinds of marketing and nothing has brought us as much work as the Advertiser. Not only a great publication, but Sally is a pleasure to work with. Would have no hesitations in recommending the Advertiser.

Our research shows us that ALL our cleaning work has come from the advert in The  Advertiser and not from any other method, which means our target audience is those that read The Advertiser.

Advertising in the Local Ads has increased our income in the final quarter of the year by 20%, proving that our client base turn to Local Ads to fill their needs.

Neil Tinley Cleaning Companions

We have advertised in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham Advertiser for over two years and are delighted with the wide distribution and the friendly,  professional service we receive.

Every issue has brought interest in our service and we will continue to advertise in this publication for the foreseeable future. We have no hesitation in recommending the Advertiser to other companies in the area wishing to increase their visibility.

The ad has been really sucessful – so much so that I need to catch up a bit before I take any more work on!

Karen Valdez KV Accountancy

The Wiltshire Hotel Golf & Leisure Club has been a customer of the Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser for the last eighteen months. We have found that this has been an excellent tool for connecting with our Local Community. The service we receive from Sally is both professional and proactive! I would highly recommend her without reservation!

Mandy Barrell The Wiltshire Hotel Golf & Leisure Club

Lime Kiln Leisure Centre has been using ‘Local Ads’ Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham publication and have seen positive results with customers coming into the centre and saying they have seen our adverts.

Our most recent advert is for Easter holiday activities and we are seeing an increase in holiday course bookings.

Sally is very helpful with creating our visuals and keeping within our corporate guidelines and turns round jobs in super quick time!

Lisa McCulloch Places for People Ltd

Local Ads is about encouraging the residents of RWB to shop locally & find and use local tradesmen and services. Run by a local business woman, advertised in by local businesses & delivered locally – keeping the High Street, local businesses & tradesman of RWB alive.  This is why I support and advertise in Local Ads.

Bernice Fitz-Barton Body Beauty By Bernice
