Three high quality magazines delivered free through letterboxes, to over 27,000 homes and businesses in mid-Essex villages

Advertising in The Village Emporium works.

On average 80% of advertisers continue to re-book because: -

  • Local people use local businesses.
  • The magazines are kept, read and re-read – it’s a conscious decision to enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine while reading an enjoyable magazine.
  • Readers value the locally focused information.
  • We reach customers in rural areas, often with few services on their doorsteps.
  • We ‘talk’ to customers that don’t use social media – don’t forget, not everyone likes it!
  • Readers trust our publications. This benefits the credibility of your brand.
  • You will be right there when they need services or products or are looking for places to go.
  • Our team delivers our magazines free, through the letterbox, and we monitor our distributors using GPS tracking. The bi-monthly format gives you flexibility to change ads to reflect seasonal, topical and promotional needs.
  • You get a free entry in our online directory for the duration of your advert.
