Readership & Circulation

Reaching almost 16,000 homes in Ryburn and Elland, it’s easy to see why so many local businesses advertise with Go Local.

Feedback indicates that all three magazines generate a healthy ROI in terms of advertising, with response rates and enquiries on the increase. Long standing businesses regard Go Local as an integral part of their marketing strategy, whilst new start-ups have found the initial boost in awareness and interest has been crucial in those first few months.

Advertising in more than one region exposes your business to a greater audience and we offer scaled discounts on rates to make multi-region advertising affordable. Our standard advert sizes are quarter, half and full. Our premium ad options include front and back covers, inside front, inside back and centre spread.

3 steps to booking an Advert with Go Local

  • SELECT YOUR AREA
  • Choose from: Ryburn Valley and Elland (or mix and match)
  • Consider circulation
  • Remember little and often is best. Readers generally need to see your ad a minimum of 3 times before they may respond. Better one area three times, than all three areas once.
  • WHAT SIZE WILL YOUR AD BE?
  • Standard sizes: 1/4 Page, 1/2 Page and FULL Page
  • Premium sizes: CENTRE SPREAD, FRONT PAGE, BACK PAGE, INSIDE FRONT, INSIDE BACK
  • The priority pages tend to get booked up around 12 months in advance but we occasionally we do have a cancellation so let us know if you’re interested.
  • DESIGN - WHAT WILL YOUR AD LOOK LIKE?
  • Consider design and content
  • Make sure you have a 'CALL-TO-ACTION'
  • Remember less is more. A strong visual impact will work better than an ad filled with words. Use a strong heading of 8 words or less if possible.
