What is the minimum booking?

2 months/1 complete delivery  campaign. We offer lower rates when you book a 6 or 12 month package, rather than short term bookings (2 months minimum). Advertising for  6 or 12 months works out better value per month and you’re more likely to get better response rates when people sere your advert time after time.  The most popular package is a Quarter page in 1 Region for 6 months.

I only want to advertise for 1 month - can I do that?

Sorry but no. We normally reprint the magazines every 2 months so the minimum booking is 2 months. If necessary you can amend your advert or swop regions before we start a 2 month cycle.

How many directories get delivered?

We are currently planning to launch a new region in Denbighshire which will bring our bi-monthly distribution to be 90,000 magazines every 2 months 

How do they get delivered?

The directories are mainly hand delivered door to door by our experienced local team. Our team are GPS tracked for additional peace of mind. Every 2 months Local Dragon magazines are delivered to  more individual households than any other printed media we know of in North Wales. As well as our door to door distribution we place a few magazines in selected local outlets.

How do I know which size advert is right for my business?

We can help you with this:

1/8th Page Advert (6cm wide x 4.5cm tall) is suitable for a small business wanting to have their contact details handy month after month over the long term.i.e. A local ‘One Man Band’

A Quarter Page Ad (6cm wide x 9cm tall) is suitable for a smaller business wanting to attract regular enquiries to either grow or maintain their business.

A Half Page Ad (12.5cm wide x 9cm tall) is best for a small business that wants very good exposure in the area and a high response rate.

A Full Page Ad (12.5cm wide x 19cm tall) is great for a medium business wanting high exposure.

Prime Pages (Front (10.5cm wide x16.2cm tall) Back, Inside Front & Back , Pages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and Centre Pages) are for Businesses wanting Maximum exposure, with excellent brand recognition.
