Welcome to Linked Magazine,
Linked Magazine is a dynamic online local living and lifestyle magazine with big ideas. We have created a vibrant online hub that we hope you will find both useful and interesting.
As a feature rich digital magazine, Business Directory and What’s On guide for the area, it is unique.
What does Linked Magazine offer that’s different?
We produce a quality local digital magazine with lots of interesting and diverse articles written by professional writers. It is a magazine first and foremost, and we want to deliver great content that you are going to love. We cover everything from local news and events, to health & wellness, food & drink and anything we think you might find interesting.
Everything can be accessed with one-click, and is interactive, with content changing all the time. Our Business Directory is not a ‘static’ digital directory listing (most are), but is interactive and effective because it links to the magazine content. Google loves a quality hyperlocal digital directory, and this helps our business listings be found more easily.
We are not an advertiser, and we do not cash-in on paid advertorial as we feel it compromises quality and trust within the magazine.
OPTIMISED & RESPONSIVE ACROSS ALL MOBILE DEVICES, THE MAGAZINE IS EASILY ACCESSED ONLINE.
Linked Magazine and the Local Community
Our Community Hub Pages are dedicated to keeping local people in the loop, with one-click, and are valuable as a community asset. With a drop-down menu we LINK the community to information on local disruptions; roads, schools, buses, flooding, gritters. Hub pages also have one-click links to NHS services; doctors, dentists, pharmacies and opticians. You can always find the details and times for the local dumps and recycling.
We also offer FREE listing for all local clubs, sports and societies, and are happy to promote your events.
In a fragmented rural setting, with an enterprising heart, Linked Magazine can link the large spectrum of businesses serving the area with the customers searching for places, events, products and services.
We hope you will join our vibrant local enterprise.

Linked Magazine App?
We developed an app in 2017, but it was felt (via a reader poll) that it was unecessary since the existing responsive digital platform works perfecty well. There is a move away from apps at any rate, due to concerns over data safety issues, and apps are notoriously poor when it comes to businesses being found by the search engines. Importantly, a decent app is expensive and we do not want to pass the extra costs incurred onto the businesses listing with us.
