Welcome to the Maidstone Village Magazine - Online
Maidstone Village Magazine is a totally independent business, it is not a franchise or part of a large corporation. It is simply published by Helena, a local person who wants to encourage local people to use local businesses, thereby helping the local community to thrive.
During these difficult economic times it is more important than ever to let people know all about your business. Especially as many small businesses who do not have a ‘shop front’ are unknown to the local community. The Maidstone Village Magazine can help you to get your business recognised by the local community and thereby increase your sales. There is strong evidence to suggest that local people do prefer to use local services.
There are two Editions of the Maidstone Village Magazine, collectively being hand delivered for FREE every month to over 6000 homes and businesses. The Three Suttons Edition is distributed to 3000 homes and businesses in Boughton Monchelsea, Chart Sutton, Sutton Valence, East Sutton, Warmlake, Langley, Langley Heath and Kingswood with distribution points in Bearsted, Coxheath, Linton and Yalding. The Loose Edition is distributed to 3200 homes and businesses in Loose, East Farleigh, West Farleigh and Hunton. Together both Editions provide an estimated readership of at least 12,500. Since the launch issues the magazines have gone from strength to strength and are now relied upon by local residents as a trustworthy source of local information and news and as a means of finding local products and services as and when required. The magazines have helped many local businesses to gain more sales.
The magazines are high quality, full colour glossy publications - a resident's handbook produced to a very high standard and including a wealth of interesting features and local information which means that many residents keep, read and refer to them regularly throughout the month. We get excellent feedback from residents and advertisers alike, just take a look at our testimonials.
