The Beacon community advertising magazine is a fully independent publication delivered monthly to over 10,000 homes and businesses in the South Hams. It is delivered FREE door to door by our own teams, which means readers don't have to rely on picking the magazine up in a local shop, they have the convenience of having it delivered straight to their door every month ... and what's more - it's FREE !
The magazine is A5 in size, printed in an environmentally friendly way in full colour, on high gloss re-cycled paper and contains a wide range of advertisements from local businesses as well as regular articles, editorials, puzzles and local information and events.
The aim of the magazine is to help local businesses grow and to make local residents aware of all the local businesses and services available within our surrounding area. Generally people prefer to use a local business but are often unaware that they may have a plumber who lives round the corner or an electrician just down the road.
Many small businesses can't afford to advertise in larger publications or newspapers but our magazine is very cost effective. A longer term contract is recommended to build awareness of your business. The more people that see your advert the more you become the first to contact as and when readers need that particular service. Additional discounts are available for longer term bookings.
If you have community information you would like to share, please contact us via email as soon as possible. Community and non-profit making events will be included FREE subject to availability of space. If you have any ideas on topics for future issues of the magazine or if you know of a local event that you would like to publicise please do get in touch. For editorial and advertising opportunities or just general feedback please contact us as we would love to hear from you.
Our aim is to provide an entertaining magazine that allows businesses to promote themselves cost effectively within the local community. This glossy, topical magazine is an exciting alternative to monochrome local papers, but is cheaper than most of them, therefore allowing the affordability to advertise on a monthly basis and the opportunity to build a significant local profile.
Over 10,000 copies hand delivered every month in the South Hams.
