Advertising Rates etc relating to The Southampton Directory


  • The Essential Advertising Choice for Local businesses.

    40,000 homes. Weve Got it Covered.

    We cant promise to attract you a mate,

    but we can attract you new customers.

  • A5 is Their Preferred Choice. Its a handy size, fits neatly in a kitchen drawer or by the telephone. Its too good to throw away!

    Residents Connect with It. Its full of information relevant; local whats on, lists of clubs and so-cieties, community information and, of course, all the advertisers are local to them.

    A Trusted Source. By being associated with the magazine, advertisers are also perceived to be good, honest businesses to trust.

    A Regular, Friendly Face. Every two months, a new magazine arrives through their letterbox. Lots of people like the articles, enter the competitions, find out whats on, the kids do the puzzles resulting in a high retention rate compared to many other publications.

    Quality Distribution. Clearly, there are over 40,000 homes across the areas I cover so I focus on privately owned 3 bedroom + homes with own drive and/or garage. Every street has been personally vetted by me to qualify. The magazines are delivered by my team of distributors; I dont use agencies.

    Professional Design. Its easy on the eye and your advert will always look its best. Pleaser remember; your advert should sell not tell ! I offer a free advert design review to regulars so no need to use an agency!

    Its Quick & Easy to Use: Advertisers Index Display advertisers are listed under the appropriate heading in the Advertisers Index. This helpful device to find your advert is generally unique to A5 local directories. Also, being A5 there are fewer adverts per page so yours stands out on the page.

    Free Expertise. I give honest, unbiased advice about what size advert you should book, graphic design and ideas to promote your business, if you ask. I have run my own business for 10 years so understand the demands on your time, budget and resources.

    AND YES, SALES ! ...

    Jim Stock, Fresh Look Kitchens

    "Many thanks Melanie, it's month one for my new kitchen business and I have a sale already with another in the pipeline. Advertising in your magazine is already more than paying for itself. I really am glad I listened to your advice."

    FOR TRAFFIC TO YOUR WEBSITE... Sean Quinn, EEC 24/7 Electrician

    "I know when the magazine is out because I see a sharp increase in the hits to my website. Its a good supply of quality enquiries for me."


    Thank you for considering The Southampton Directory as a place to advertise your business. For over three years now, the magazine has been a regular source of enquiries (and sales!) for many local businesses.

    Why Do People Use Local Directories? What Makes them So Successful?


    Since placing my adverts in The Southampton Directory, enquiries have dramatically increased. The real benefit is being putting the message out to local people in an accessible form. Thanks Melanie for an excellent publication, thoughtfully put together.

  • This A5 publication is delivered to 40,000 homes on a rotating basis to two areas; east and west.
