What Our Advertisers Think...

"Hi Karyn, I currently advertise in All Things Local and have done for a number of months and I have to say it has been more than worth its money in the amount of business it brings me. Not only do I advertise in it as a local, I also read it and find it very useful. Keep up the great work with the magazine. Kind Regards."

- Craig Aldred - Computer Repair 4U

"Hi Ruth, I'm highly delighted with the advert and your level of service!
Thanks again for everything, I will be certainly recommending All Things Local."

- Steve - Elite Connect

"Just to let you know that I have picked up a couple of jobs from my first advert with All Things Local and I am currently pricing two more landscaping ones. So, for my first ever advert with you, it feels pretty good and I am sure my brand will start to sink into the minds of your customers.
I thought you might like some positive feedback."

- Steve - Clip'em and Fell'em

"Thankyou for the support given from the All Things Local team when placing my advert. It has been a great success leading to an immediate response and increased client base. I would like to give particular thanks to Ruth Brown who has co-ordinated my advert; her help and guidance has been valuable, Ruth is a great person to work with. Many thanks."

- Lucy - Lucy Mobile Hairdresser

"As a business we aspire to have good customer service and a professional but friendly approach to our customers. This is reflected in the attitude of Ruth, and everybody at All Things Local. We have wasted money in the past on adverts that haven't been productive for our business. At Premier Blinds we can honestly say that the advertising through All Things Local has been profitable and effortless."

- Grant Alldread - Premier Blinds

"I started The Oven Cleaning Company over 3 years ago with 5000 self designed leaflets and absolutely no idea how to clean an oven. 57 minutes later, the phone rang and I was off the mark. By print of another 20,000 leaflets, clever use of an A Board, referrals, repeats, the benefits of a sign written van and good service the business grew very rapidly. But then the issue arose which faces most growing businesses. Whilst you are working flat out, how can you search for more business? For the cost of one oven clean, All Things Local magazine brings me as much business as we can handle, even working (as we do) 7 days a week.. In my personal opinion, if you are serious about your business, you cannot beat advertising with All Things Local."

- Ray Constable - The Oven Cleaning Company

"Ruth made producing our advert easy; she listened to our needs, was efficient and creative and has followed up before every edition to ensure that we were happy. We are in our second year now and feel confident that our advert is reaching exactly the right market. Kindest regards."

- Anita - Out Framed

"We always have a great response from our advertising with All Things Local. We can expect to see a quick return on our investment and also get calls 6 to 12 months down the line as people find the magazine so useful to refer to for local businesses. We don't hesitate in recommending advertising here."

Graham Ashton - GFS Plumbing Ltd

"I opened 'The Dog Shop' in April this year and was approached by Ruth to advertise in All Things Local. Since doing so I have been very impressed with the results which the magazine has produced which in turn have resulted in regular bookings for the salon. I have been very grateful for Ruth's "can do" approach and the friendliness but professional manner in which my advert has been dealt with. Pauline has also written my editorial in Oct/Nov 09 issue which I am sure will result in more interest in 'The Dog Shop'. I therefore would like to say a big thank you to Karyn and her team for all the help and kindness given getting the advert within All Things local off the ground and look forward to future ideas for my business within this local magazine."

- The Dog Shop

"I decided to use All Things Local for my first advert as I liked the magazines concept. I think we all like to use local people for various services if we can. I found Karyn to be friendly,knowledgable and very helpful. The advert designs are great and any alterations are done with great speed. I was delighted with the response to the advert from the start and even though I now have a website which attracts business from far and wide, will continue to keep things local with year round advertising in Karyn's fine publications."

- Steve Lees - Airport Transfers Derby

“I’ve been open for 1 year and have spent a lot of money on advertising and All Things Local has been the most productive expense I have had. The professionalism is outstanding. It’s nice that everyone who comes into the salon has one at home and has actually read it. We have many new clients as a result and I look forward to the future between Ghost and All Things Local.”

- Emma Wilson, Director - Ghost Hair and Beauty, Kilburn

“All Things Local has been great for re-introducing THE BULLS HEAD to the local area since our re-opening earlier this year. A high quality, nicely balanced read with something for everyone and all ages. I would recommend it to all local businesses as we have has a great response since our first advertisement in the launch issue back in June/July.”

- James Bull, Business Development & Marketing Manager – Probably a Pub Company Limited.

- Claire Hall, Derby Rotaract

“Karyn has created her magazine to a very high standard, the content is varied, topical and relevant. All Things Local is an interesting and informative publication for the local community and has been very helpful for our business. The response to our recruitment advert in the last edition resulted in us expanding our services to include Reiki, remedial massage and reflexology – all from local, experienced professionals.”

- Janet Lovett – The Retreat Advanced Beauty & Tanning, Belper

“Thanks again for the ad, I think All Things Local is well-designed, informative and looks very professional and I’m very happy to be working with you, especially as you are so friendly and helpful.”

- Sally Hellewell – Derbyshire Hypnotherapy, Heanor

"Having previously wasted a lot of money on advertising in magazines without any success I was wary about going in “All Things Local" which was recommended to me by a friend, but having met Karyn the editor and realising that she was as passionate about her magazine as I am about personal training I decided to give it a go.

Karyn produces a professional, well written magazine crammed with useful stuff, and most important provided me with clients. Keep up the good work"

- Alex Robinson- personal trainer

"Hi Karyn

I thought I would just take a moment to let you know what kind of response I have received from advertising in All Things Local magazine.
I can certainly say that the response has been even better than I expected and certainly has more than paid for the ads already and, as many of the clients have become regulars, I expect that to continue.
It's also interesting to see how pleased existing clients are to see the ads."

Peter Waugh (Amber Feet)

"Karyn is everything you would hope for in her role, producing 2 excellent local magazines and tirelessly supporting local businesses, like Kilburn Osteopaths. She is a natural networker and the adverts and editorial she has produced for me have been invaluable in establishing my new business in the Belper area, after relocating from Leicester." Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity.

Rachel Jennings, Kilburn Osteopaths

"I have advertised in All Things Local from the very beginning and have found Karyn to be very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Karyn was an excellent source of knowledge and inspiration when it came to advertising (which was quite new to me at the time). I have continued to advertise with All Things Local as it has been very successful for my business and look forward to many more issues of this great magazine." Top qualities: Expert , On Time , High Integrity.

Sally Hellewell, Derbyshire Hypnotherapy

"Dear Karyn.

Thank you for all your help in getting us set up, you have been brilliant. I have already had some friends and family contact me saying how good the advert is - thank you. I would be delighted for you to print this - you have been an absolute joy to work with."

Leanne Whysall, Stately Brides, Belper.

"Dear Karyn.

Just a brief line to thank you for the article for the Belper Community Football Programme (BCFP) that featured in recent editions of the 'All Things Local' magazine. It's good to know that such a lively medium exists to promote matters of local interest for people in Belper and the surrounding areas. Once again, many thanks on behalf of BCFP for your help in promoting the football programme."

David Laughlin, Secretary, Belper Town Football Club

"Hi Ruth.

Just thought I would let you know that I've had 2 phone calls already from the advert that I did with All Things Local Ripley Edition.

“ I just wanted to say how interesting and useful the magazine is to us both. We have so far used one of the recipe's, eaten at one of the restaurants and contacted some of the local traders. I am particularly keen to support local businesses and this is a way of getting their contact details. Thanks for such a well produced and useful LOCAL magazine“
