I cannot recommend Linked Business Directory advertising highly enough. The advertising space is worth it’s weight in gold. Very accommodating. Fantastic pricing. I know where my money will be going, along with my future advertising. 


Perhaps you are accustomed to the traditional avenue of paper advertising? We do get that people like to be able to see their advert on paper, and that’s just fine if you like the old school vibe. Research shows, however, that very few potential customers will reach for a paper magazine to look for a product or service. In the modern world, your business needs to be easily found online with one-click, and Linked Magazine works to fly the flag for your business online. In fact, we do a lot of things to make our business listings smile.

Think of Linked Magazine as one huge melting pot of quality Google search words and phrases; burgeoning with local search key words contained within hundreds of local articles and business listings:
Village names, popular tourist search phrases, locations, film, TV, products, designers, trades, events, pubs, restaurants and local walks all within the magazine.
It will always work better than just having your own website to promote your business.  Not only that, but there is quality writing within the pages, and the content is constantly changing, which Google loves and is attracted to. Your business would do well to be a part of that Linked Magazine Google Magnet!
As the magazine and directory grow, so will the strength of that magnet.
Linked Magazine is a really valuable resource and a breath of fresh air amid some other local advertising. Used as advertiser and for looking for services. Old Mill, Killearn

It would be simple enough for Linked Magazine to send a quotient of our vast digital content to a publisher and have it printed and delivered locally.  We choose not to because we think it’s very expensive, outdated, isn’t environmentally friendly (trees, chemicals, fuel) and actually isn’t a particularly effective advertising tool.


So, how does a good digital listing fair against good old-fashioned paper advertising?
