Our purpose is to put local people in touch with local businesses and support charities & community groups, and, to bring the people of East Grinstead and surrounding villages some fascinating features they will absolutely love.
Many of our advertisers get local work, guaranteeing they can stay close to home. This means less time travelling or stuck in traffic and less petrol spent.
We are confident that we can get results for our advertisers which is why we have an 83% re-sign-up rate. We also work with our clients to adapt their artwork until they are happy with the result and the responses they are getting.
East Grinstead Living has been beneficial to our company, AfriPonds, in more ways than one, with a number of leads and plenty of positive comments having come from our routine monthly full page ad. Tally has been extremely helpful each month in terms of changing our artwork and answering various questions pertaining to the positives associated with advertising! We look forward to continuing our relationship with Tally and East Grinstead Living
The EG Living magazine has been my best form of advertising; it's reasonably priced and has gained me many customers throughout the East Grinstead area.
Just finished leafing through Jan’s EG Living magazine. Such a great copy!! I found the Beeching piece and the Birch Grove article really well written and utterly absorbing. And the potted history of William Robinson and his transformation of Gravetye was brilliant and filled in large gaps in my knowledge of the place. Lastly Susie West’s artwork on the cover was lovely. Might have to check out her work.
The great thing about building up a client base from the local magazine is it keeps the work close to home and when time is so precious, this can allow a healthier life/work balance - long journeys to work are no longer needed, no more time sitting in traffic jams and waking up early to avoid rush hour. Our clients also build up word of mouth to develop a local reputation that can last far into the future.
If you need help coming up with an effective advert, we can help you. We have been advising and helping our clients build their customer base since 2005.
If you are interested in contributing to our editorial content, we will be happy to hear from you too, particularly if you are a local charity or community group.
