The following are testimonials to the success of advertising in The Hogsty End Handbook:
Advertising in Hogsty was the singularly most important business decision I have made to date and has introduced me to high quality clients, it was undoubtably the best investment I have made in my company.
We've had a great response from the advert we placed in the August/Septembers editions of Hogsty End and Roundabout Here and so we will not be requiring space to advertise in the October edition.
You will definitely be my first port of call for future local advertising.
I just wanted to thank you for your help with advertising my new gardening business through the Hogsty End magazine.
I hear so many good things about the magazine and it really does bring so much work my way each month.
I am pleased to say the office has now been let so I won't be needing the advert to go in again.
I was delighted that the advert generated local interest and subsequently the office has been let to folks that live in Woburn Sands.
I found advertising with the Hogsty End Handbook very successful, it increased my client list in just a couple of months. I would heartily recommend it.
I am very happy with the brilliant service.
I have been tracking the results from my advertising. The repeat business from my first quarter page advert (7 months earlier) has brought me £250,000 of business.
I have been advertising with Hogsty End and Roundabout Here for many years now and I love the service - faultless, and the results are great too.
The response we got from the back page of the December magazine was phenomenal, thank you again.
We had storage space to rent out and thought we would try an ad in the Hogsty End Handbook. We had several calls and within 6 weeks had found our perfect tenant. Thank you for your help.
We've been advertising in the Hogsty End Handbook and Roundabout Here for the last 18 months and it's been a prominent feature of our volunteer recruitment campaigns. It's a great local magazine full of useful information - the service and level of customer care provided by Maria is easily one of its best features. We are very pleased to continue our association with both publications given the significant number of potential volunteers we have been able to attract through its circulation. Long may it continue!
I thought i would let you know i had an inquiry from the advert in the magazine which has now been booked. A nice lunch party for 45 in June ... ,
it does work, like you tell us!
I am a big fan of your magazine, and have used it to get a Plasterer to do some work for us, a DIY company, Man with a Van, an Electrician, and plumber, the loft ladder guy, a home hairdresser, in fact, thinking about it, it's the first place I look when we need anything doing around the house, Yellow Pages - whats that!!! :0)
I am thrilled to let you know that I received a number of calls about Darren and Pearl on the back of the last issue, it is interesting the response we had to putting rabbits in the magazine and they are now reserved after 4 months in our care without any interest so thank you so much for your help in promoting our animals. It really does make a massive difference.
I have been really delighted with the response to my ad for cane repairs which I placed to run in the Hogsty End Handbook from February this year. I certainly intend to continue with it as it reaches so many people - fantastic.
I've given up advertising in other places and only advertise in The Hogsty End Handbook and Roundabout Here. Customers are always telling me how they get good service from the advertisers in the magazines.
We have advertised in Hogsty End for over a year now and are very happy with the service we receive. We would highly recommend them.
Advertising in the Hogsty End publication has been the best thing I have done. All my business is local which is great for me. Hogsty End have been nothing but friendly and helpful and I have a lot to thank them for.
As an advertiser in both Hogsty End and Roundabout Here I have been very pleased with the response my adverts have produced. I feel its important to be in a local magazine that has a variety of businesses and services and is used by the local community.
Oak Leaf Gardens have been using Hogsty End now for 3 years, and as a new company found the service excellent. 65% of our work comes from customers who read the magazine and I always recommend people to advertise their company with Hogsty End.
Advertising in the Hogsty End has benefited my business far more than spending vast amounts of money on advertising in the local newspapers. People tend to read this booklet on arrival and then keep hold of it until the next edition arrives. I will definitely be advertising in Hogsty End for the foreseeable future.
Hogsty End has proved to be a cost effective way of targeting local customers. From my experience, it is an extremely professionally put together publication and we often get several calls on the day the publication goes out.
We have used the Hogsty End for several years now, and they have always proved to be one of the best ways to advertise our services, a lot of our domestic work comes from this magazine, and we will continue to advertise with them.
I use community magazines all the time for my advertising. The Hogsty End is by far the best! They offer a complete package, the advice is second to none regarding designs of your adverts (if you're a complete novice like me), the advertising rates are excellent value for money - I recovered my first quarter's advertising fee on my first job from a customer who called in the first month: November 2010.We use a variety of community magazines and so far the Hogsty End has been the most successful.They are extremely accommodating, friendly and professional and above all extremely helpful. We will continue to advertising in the Hogsty End magazine and have booked the whole year. Great working with you.
I just wanted to thank you for letting us advertise in The Hogsty End Handbook.
I know it only went out very recently and today I have received two jobs from it - one in Wavendon & one in Aspley Guise.
I would just like to say how me and my husband enjoy the Hogsty End each month. My husband reads it cover to cover. Not only does it have adverts for everything, it has stacks of local information too. May it go on forever. Thank you again, kind regards
I just wanted to congratulate you on the work and booklets you produce, I think it is extremely useful for local contacts and advertising. I have recommended it to serveral of my tenants at Deethe Farm Industrial Units and I am delighted to see in the last issue four of them are now advertising with you.
It represents excellent value.
Excellent, cost effective way to reach your customers. The magazine is well read by my customers and their loyalty to advertisers is in my view exceptional. The publication is professional and is never late being issued.
This publication has gone from strength to strength, providing exceptional quality at an affordable price.The staff are extremely efficient always delivering what they have promised.
Samantha Harris, Maid To Iron
Thank you for a very successful campaign!
Rugged & Tough is a brand new business therefore advertising is critical to ensure word gets
around. However the cost in big publications is prohibitive, so having been introduced to The Hogsty End Handbook I thought it worth a go. Hogsty End did a fab job with the advert for
us and we ran the first month. As we knew, it takes a few to make it happen,
so as expected, didn't get a rush through the doors on the first run. The
second advert was tweaked a bit for the current summer season and we ran it
again, both in The Hogsty End Handbook and Roundabout Here, All I can say is "WOW", our
footfall increased by 33%. We have now booked full pages
in three future editions.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much for sending The Hogsty End Handbook through my door. We have just moved to Woburn Sands from Linslade and are loving every second of it. The book has been so handy to help us get our bearings and find out the places to go and people to speak to from everything from window cleaning to eating out and back again. Many thanks and if there is a quick way to get an allotment we would love to know!!!
Just a quick ‘thank you’ for managing to squeeze Franklite into the July magazines. As you know, the decision to run a summer clearance sale was a last minute one and I am so glad we were just in time.
I wanted to write and thank you for your help with our advert in The Hogsty End Handbook.
I have been delighted with the results so far.
Within a week of my first advert I had received my first enquiry and by the end of the month I had secured a significant order.
The same thing happened the next month resulting in an even bigger order.
Advertising in this publication has already paid for itself many times over.
I am writing to thank you for all the help you have given me in setting up my advert in your great publication. The response I have had has been unbelievable. I have always been very wary of advertising, mainly because I have found it to be expensive and never very effective. You and your magazine have proved me wrong; from our first telephone conversation you did all the work planning the advert, helping me with the artwork and advising me on size and location. As I have said the response to the advert has been unbelievable, so thank you very much for all your hard work, and I look forward to a long partnership together.
A well run business, with lots of help and a great way to advertise my business.
I found every aspect of this company to be very very good indeed.
I have advertised with Hogsty End Ltd. for about a year. The best advertising I have ever done - I cant praise it enough.
I would just like to say thank you for the advert in The Hogsty
End Handbook. It has been a great success. I have had a lot of response
from it, a great deal more than I expected. It has been exceptional
value for money, one of the best advertisements we have placed.
The Hogsty End Handbook is a great little publication.
We can credit it directly for several jobs and many enquiries. Finding an advertising
that is both effective and value for money is a rare thing indeed, but the
Hogsty End Handbook is both of these.
Comments made recently by local residents:
'Please may I have an extra copy - it's my Bible.'
'We've recently moved to the area and the previous owner left us a copy. It's been our Bible - we found our plumber and electrician in the Handbook and whatever we need, we look there first.' Chris, Aspley Heath.
'I've used half a dozen people from The Hogsty End Handbook. I prefer using the advertisers because they are not here today gone tomorrow operations.'
'Thanks very much for this, I always enjoy the Handbook. I've kept EVERY copy and have used some of the advertisers.'
'The perfect size to be able to sit and have a read with a cup of coffee, and the articles are just right - not too long. Now we have this, we don't even bother reading the paper - it just goes straight in the recycling bin.'
