Why choose LocalReach? Read our customer testimonials…
LocalReach Magazine is a wonderful community connector. As more and more community services are being affected by cuts in funding and have little money to put towards promoting themselves, LocalReach is helping to reconnect, regain and sustain a sense of community.
A couple of years back we lost our Burnham-on-Sea Adult Education centre. This was a bad blow for the area and those of us who lost our jobs. With my students help we were successful in finding a great new home for our class at the Bay Centre in Burnham. We then needed to let people know where we were. We contacted LocalReach and were struck by their enthusiasm to help promote our class free of charge in their community editorial section. We have had an amazing response which shows just how relevant a printed community magazine is in today’s world, especially as it is delivered to people’s homes.
Community enterprises are so valuable in bringing people together, providing a sense of belonging, identity and achievement. Thank you, LocalReach, for being an important part of our journey.

I have been very impressed by the service provide by LocalReach. At first, I was sceptical about print advertising as I didn’t know if it would still work these days, I have tried other publications which bought me in next to nothing. However, I love the fact that LocalReach is delivered by the Royal Mail meaning they reach all the homes and businesses and include all the community news and events.
LocalReach has succeeded where others haven’t and we have found that our advert has brought in regular enquires each month, we also have a professional live team to answer all our calls, meaning even when I couldn’t get to my phone, we still have our calls answered and then emailed over to me.
They have a brilliant designer who has handled the design from start to finish, creating me a eye catching advert which represents my business
Big Thumbs up to the team at LocalReach and for anyone who is wanting to gain some more business enquires I recommend you get in touch…"
Rubble and Rubbish
I qualified as a Foot Health Practitioner in September 2017 and started my business in October, beginning with relatives and friends. Next I leafletted, road by road, throughout 2018 covering most of Street and surrounding areas. My business grew but by March 2019 my diary still wasn’t full.
I needed to look for a more effective way to advertise. I rang LocalReach and their representative, Harvey, met with me later that week to discuss options. He explained what LocalReach offered, with their magazine being delivered by the Royal mail and their unique call answering service to monitor the enquires.
To be honest, I had my doubts. It sounded too good to be true. However I decided to go ahead. LocalReach helped with a full design service from start to finish, kept in touch with me regularly and my first advert appeared in the April edition. Had I known what the response would be, I wouldn’t have booked two weeks holiday that month! I had to work hard to keep up with the volume of enquiries and appreciated that answering service!
Now my business is really up and running thanks to LocalReach - and its readers.
If your business needs a boost - why not give LocalReach a call? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!”

LocalReach is filling a void where local people can read a hard copy community publication rather than relying on social media, which many villagers don’t use.
The handy size, clear ‘open’ presentation style and ‘quality feel’ is great; not cluttered, especially with adverts & the typeface is easy to read. The balance between the sections is well managed & full of information. The free editorial content is vital, giving local groups a voice & visibility they otherwise wouldn’t have. Local groups & businesses should be encouraged to use the excellent opportunity provided.”

I was contacted by LocalReach a few times. I was already advertising in the newspaper & had been for 10 years but Newspapers are changing, they are not delivered & people won’t pay for them, so they are tending to go more online.
Initially, I was unsure of what response would be generated from LocalReach. However, the team at LocalReach recommended I went into 3 areas with 3 local numbers, I had my calls answered by their live answering team. Each call recorded & emailed to me, it worked so well that when they launched a new edition I went straight into it! I have been with LocalReach over a year & haven’t looked back.”
“When LocalReach contacted me this year I only really wanted to go in for 1 month to try them out. However, my advert generated so much business I’m still advertising & contemplating more areas & bigger adverts. LocalReach is the only place I advertise, I have tried online advertising but everyone is looking for the cheapest deal. I like LocalReach as people tend to keep the magazine for 3-4 weeks using it throughout the month. I also like the fact that it’s delivered by the Royal Mail to everyone which means I know my advert is seen by new customers as well as my existing customers.”
