I was approached by Orpington Connected magazine in December 2016, with a view to my company placing an advert in their new magazine that was going to be distributed throughout the Orpington and surrounding areas every month.
As a company we do not ever advertise like this as we really do not push the domestic side of our business preferring to concentrate on the commercial element.
However, the team were very passionate about Orpington Connected and how it was going to be distributed via their Dor to Dor business without being too salesman like!
I found their passion to be contagious and placed a small advert at a very reasonable cost for a month with a view that we would not be placing anymore after January edition. To my surprise we are still advertising for the fifth month running and the reasons for this are simple:
The team at Orpington Connected designed the advert - no effort on our part.
Within 2 months a local contractor phoned me having seen our advert and we have just completed our 3rd job for them which has paid for our 5 adverts many, many times over.
I highly recommend to all local businesses that you should arrange a meeting with Orpington Connected as soon as possible to see how they can improve sales for your business.
