Following the success of the Liscard Messenger and Wallasey Village Messenger magazine titles, Regional Media is launching a 3rd Wallasey area title – the “New Brighton Messenger” in March 2018.
Starting with the Moreton Messenger over 10 years ago another 7 titles have been added and now over 43,000 magazines are produced and delivered to local Wirral homes and businesses every 3 months.
There are the following opportunities:-
1). Editorial News Stories
If you are a member of a local club, group, organisation or an individual with a local news story please send it to us. We are particularly keen to help local people in New Brighton know about events which will be happening within their community. As a guideline, we normally ask for approx 200 words and a selection of pictures per story, and priority will be given to those stories which are of most local interest.
2). Local Advertising
Like all Regional Media titles the New Brighton Messenger is produced by volunteers and costs are covered by advertising revenue from local businesses; so the more advertising sold the more pages of local news can be printed in each issue. Advertising costs are kept low so that they are cost-effective for even the smallest local business, and we can help the local economy to thrive e.g colour ads start from £40 and classified boxes are £15.
3). Deadline – Spring Issue
The deadline for inclusion in the Spring issue is Friday 16th February and stories should cover the period from mid-March/Easter to mid-June. Technical information for advertisers who want to supply finished artwork is available on request, and Regional Media offers an advert design service if required.
Please contact me if you would like any more information or to arrange a meeting.
