After I launched my small business, I looked for opportunities to raise my business profile within the Kerrisdale neighbourhood and community. I took a chance with the Kerrisdale Insider and quickly found that this test reaped immediate and big rewards. Not only did I receive countless new customers who mentioned seeing my ad, many have become regular and loyal customers. The magazine's reach within the immediate neighbourhood coupled with residents who clearly read each issue, demonstrate excellent value for my advertising dollars. Working with Carolynne and her team are wonderful to work with and very responsive. I would highly recommend advertising in the magazine and joining the local corps of local business who advertise and support our local magazine.

I just wanted to thank you so much for all the advertising in Dunbar Life. It has been by far our best source, with many customers saying it’s how they found out about us. We would like to continue to utilize the magazine as much as possible.

I can tell you now that revenue produced from ads just in the last 8 months will be between $50,000-$80,000. My ad cost was under $2,000.

I just wanted to let you know that we are thankful for the opportunity to be in your magazine. Every day since the August issue dropped, customers mention that they saw the article in Steveston Insider, and how much they really liked the content and photographs. I have mentioned to Sarah that her article was wonderful. Also Sandra captured the essence of the store so well in her photographs. Please tell her we think the photos were lovely. Your publication reaches the Steveston residents directly, and so we will definitely book ads in the fall/winter issues.

We have been advertising in Steveston Insider magazine for over ten years. They are very easy to work with. Our clients can be seen reading the magazine and often comment on the interesting articles and the people they know. New clients come in because they see our ads.

Many thanks to you and Sarah Gordon for the superb coverage of Dal Richards and the Magee Centennial in the February issue of Kerrisdale Insider. Also the positioning of our ad in Kerrisdale Insider and Dunbar Life magazines was very much appreciated. Thanks again ... it is a real pleasure to have the support of true professionals with expert technical skills and knowledge.

I read your Steveston Insider from cover to cover and really enjoy the articles and pictures. Thank you for keeping me up with changes and additions in Steveston. It’s my phone directory for all the services and businesses in my little ( but growing rapidly) village. It’s a quality publication!
