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 are not an advertiser, but instead 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 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.
We do not cash-in on paid advertorial as we feel it compromises quality and trust within the magazine.
Our Community Hub Pages are dedicated to keeping local people in the loop. With a drop-down menu we LINK the community with one-click to information on local disruptions; roads, schools, buses, flooding, gritters. Hub pages 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.
We have a page to post local jobs, and a list of all local Farmer’s Markets. All accessed with one-click via the magazine. We want Linked Magazine to become a valuable community asset.
OPTIMISED & RESPONSIVE ACROSS ALL MOBILE DEVICES, THE MAGAZINE IS EASILY ACCESSED.
We looked at having an App for mobile devices, but it was felt (via a readers poll) that it was unecessary as the current online platform works perfecty on all phones, tablets etc. This also means we do not pass the extra costs incurred with an App onto the businesses listing with us.
The Business Directory will, in time, become filled and bursting with local businesses that want to be a part of this exciting enterprise, and easily accessed by locals and those searching from further afield. Exciting new businesses are listing every day. We keep prices really low to entice even the smallest business to list with us, and that will mean you can find every little or large local business when you need to.
We are friendly, keen and hope to deliver something quite different to the area. We cannot do it without you, so very much appreciate the support of those using the magazine and directory.
