What Our Advertisers Say…

Beaconsfield WI

On behalf of Beaconsfield WI, I’d like to thank you for promoting our March Cake & Craft stall in aid of Wycombe Homeless Connection. We had a very positive response on the day and were delighted to raise over £1500.

Recently started using this company for advertising and I am surprised how effect it has been for my business! I highly recommend!

Lauren Blackman

Our company has worked with Nisha and Raj at the Local Directory for over 10 years, the service we have received has exceptional; professional, responsive and friendly. Over the years we used many of the marketing packages on offer which has shown great results and provided us with a broad clientele. It has been a joy to form a business relationship with the Local Directory and we look forward to working with them for many more years 🙂

Dennis Le Couilliard

I’ve been with the local directory for a couple of years and the advert has proved to be very effective in gaining new clients. Well worth the money.

Didier Penine

I have launched two marketing campaigns with Local Directory so far, one was a large advert in their magazines and also a 30,000 leaflet drop. The work done by these guys is first rate, my main contact was with Raj and he makes things so easy, very quick to respond and he knows what will work best. Thank you for everything and I look forward to dealing with you again.

Julia Mead

Raj and Nisha have always been a pleasure to deal with when we advertise with Local Directory Magazines. Even when I make last minute changes they have always been able to accommodate. Great magazine that we all love a read of.

Jessica McEvoy

A great local mag – really good read and not just jam packed full of generic adverts. Articles, events and ads are always relevant to the time of year and to our town. Enjoy reading it and also advertise our own local business. Have contacted several local businesses over the years to do work for us. – Jessica McEvoy – Love Your Water and Local Resident.

Chandler Garvey

Fantastic local magazine with great coverage. Would recommend.

ARC – Landscaping

“ARC-Landscaping was founded in 2019, based in the Bath. In 2022 the company moved its centre of operations to the Chilterns. We obviously wanted to re-establish ourselves as quickly as possible but after the move we also obviously had to make sure our money was well spent. We found that “The Local Directories” provided access to the key areas in which we wanted to work, allowing us to focus our marketing budget where it would be most effective. We used their services for the printing and distribution of leaflets. We also placed a regular small ad in the most appropriate directory. 12 months later we are pleased to be able to say we have achieved our initial objectives. ARC-Landscaping is established as a competitive provider of landscaping services in the Chilterns area. We have built a good pipeline of future customers and a reputation for customer service and quality implementation. We believe “The Local Directory” has played a real part in that success story.”

“Just a word of thanks for your support in helping us create the half page Tutor Doctor feature in The Local Directory. Although it only appeared last week, we have already had several enquiries. Our objective in taking a larger space was to create more impact, and by expanding the simple advert format previously used we have been able to do so, but it is encouraging to have received an immediate and positive response. Thank you for your help in making this possible, and fingers crossed for more of the same.”

“Since May 2015 our Club’s advert has been inserted on your Community Board pages. Over the intervening years that advert has proved to be very successful & our membership has escalated to a point where we are now “full”. So, for the time being can I please ask that the advert be withdrawn, at a time that most suits yourselves. We are most grateful for your help & for continuing to insert our advert in your superb magazine; it certainly brought the name of our Club to the fore locally.”

“I have been pleasantly surprised by the response I have received by advertising in the Local Directory for the last few months. I was slightly dubious at first but I have had, on average, a couple of good enquiries each week and as a result of this have decided not only to continue my advertising for longer than I had anticipated, but have also put my advertisement into more magazines. To anyone who is unsure I would say give it a go!!”

The day after we received the August copy of the Kings Langley local directory my wife and I set out on the walk you featured on page 6: Walks in the Chilterns- Bourne End & Spade Oak Lake. We had a lovely walk; it was the first time we’d been to that area and it was all because you’d featured it in your publication! Thank you. Nigel Local Resident

“I just wanted to say thank you for such a lovely magazine, it’s so personal, I read your page regularly from the editor, and even took the last issue on holiday to Dubai to read on the plane. The last few issues I have been reading on the train, whilst having a coffee, in the garden or even whilst on the loo. My friend from Kensington is envious as they do not have such magazines to read. I will keep my copies and look forward to reading and learning so much more. You clearly put a lot of work and effort to do all this for the public, and this should be applauded by one. All the research on local information. Keep up the good work!”

“I worked delivering Local Directory magazines for over a year. It was an incredibly rewarding experience to raise the money for my upcoming Sweden expedition. The work also kept me fit and led me to discovering many side roads in my neighbourhood that I never would have visited before. AI leave for my expedition very shortly where I will meet the indigenous Sami people and canoe through the beautiful wilderness! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work at the Local Directory; it has been great.”

I must mention the excellent young man who has just been delivering the Gerrards Cross & Farnhams Local Directory. I live at XXX and I’ve watched him from my kitchen window. The young man was careful to make sure he closed the gates after delivering. He also made sure that the letter box flaps were closed after posting the magazine. If you find out who the Ideal Delivery Lad is, please make sure he is praised for being such a great employee. Thank you.

I am finally coming up for air after the festive fair on Saturday.
We had a fantastic day and I wanted to let you know that with your very kind support, along with other fundraising stalls on the day and the main raffle, we raised over £10,000 for the school.
As you know, I organised most of it single handedly so every penny was hard earned and I can’t tell you what a huge boost your sponsorship did for my morale. Thank you both so much.”
