Media Pack

Benefits to advertisers

  • New people are moving into HA7 EVERY WEEK. In most cases these new residents are new to the area and have no local knowledge. They are looking for guidance and the Directory offers the perfect opportunity for businesses to get themselves in front of these new potential customers.
  • It works. According to research, The Directory will be very widely read and used by the residents of the area. Most of the advertisers will appear in every publication – because the Directory works and generates business for them.
  • Price. The Directory represents incredible value if your target market includes the residents of HA7. You can get coverage for a whole year (6 issues) for less than the cost of a few ads in the local news paper, lets say.
  • It is truly local. All advertisers operate in or close to the area. There is strong evidence that truly local services are preferred by the majority of the UK population.
  • Longevity – it isn’t thrown away each week like a local newspaper. People keep it as a reference for the whole month.
  • No VAT. The price you see is the price you pay – unlike most publications where an extra 20% is added to the bill. This is because we are a small independently run business.
  • Quality. The Directory has a very high standard of print and production – utilising 150gm gloss art paper throughout. All artwork is professionally finished to ensure that you look your best and that your company is proud to be featured and associated with a high quality publication.
  • Editorial opportunities. Two advertisers each month are featured in their own two page editorial spread. This gives them a depth of coverage that is normally onlyavailable at huge expense in other publications.
  • There are few shops or services within the HA7 itself, giving providers from surrounding areas the opportunity to build significant market share. The Directory represents the most effective way for such businesses to market themselves to the residents of the area.



  • The Directory is published and distributed monthly, on or around the first weekend of the month.
  • It is delivered to over 2000 homes in and around HA7 – guaranteed.
  • Circulation will grow as new distribution areas are introduced.
  • The local Library, Doctors and Dentists waiting rooms


Format & Design

  • It is an A5 size booklet, stapled, colour print on white gloss art paper with a coordinated colour centre-page.
  • The Directory is printed on 150gm art gloss paper giving it a very high quality feel.
  • It has ‘longevity’ and because of it’s size, content, look and feel it will be kept by the majority of households until the next issue arrives, thereby giving advertisers ‘immediacy of access’ when their services are required.
  • Technical Specifications for ad’s are set out on a separate sheet.


  • We are serving one of the most densely populated, high income outer London Boroughs.
  • A third of households include dependant children, this is above the London and National average.
  • The workforce is on a par to the rest of England with regards to a higher level qualification.
  • Two thirds of the resident population are of working age with a small unemployment rate.
  • Three quarters of the population have a car, with one third of the households having two or more cars.
