I get a great deal out of running Horsham Publications. I love meeting loads of people in my local community every week and I get a great deal of pleasure at forming relationships and selling.
I feel particularly excited about the coming year here at Horsham Publications for lots of reasons, but I wanted to share with you my most important five.
1. We’re increasing the distribution of Horsham Pages to Broadbridge Heath & Wickhurst Green
It’s really exciting to be launching our biggest-ever magazine in terms of circulation, but I’m also getting a great reaction from clients when I tell them about the deal we’re offering too. Until 12th March, we are honouring our current prices for 12 months, meaning we’re better value than ever (if you get your skates on!). Plus we’ve added a new size format – the sixteenth, because we want to cater for budgets of all sizes.
2. A truly local team
Our magazines are designed, printed and distributed by people who all live locally. There is strong evidence that truly local services are preferred by most, so we’ve made sure our business is staffed by people with a vested interest in Horsham and Southwater.
3. We offer clients great editorial opportunities
I’m really proud of the editorial skills we have in-house as it’s not a given that local magazines create copy of a consistent standard. We always get great reactions from advertisers who get featured in their own editorial spread.
4. I believe in the the quality we offer advertisers
Deadline days are always manic, but despite the mayhem, I won’t sign off a magazine unless I’m 100% happy with the standard of print and production. It’s got to be as perfect as it can be every time and I personally make sure of that.
5. We have some great new offices!
I’m loving working in the centre of town and reclaiming back my garage at home where we used to be based. Please come and have a cuppa with me and my lovely team at The Courtyard, 30 Worthing Road.
Here’s to a great year ahead.
