Targeted distribution areas
The MELTON MESSENGER is delivered FREE to selected homes in both the North and the South of Melton. It is delivered to each every other month, therefore reaching almost 15,000 different homes in any two months.
Unique selling point
We ask the residents of these areas to find out which services they have used and which they would willingly suggest to others to try. If in their eyes you have given a good service in the past then we want you in our directory! If new advertisers approach us with a view to advertising we ask that they provide 3 contactable references from customers who have used their service. We reserve the right to refuse entry into our directory if we think that business is not able to provide our readers with a sufficiently high standard of service.
It is a truly local publication
The majority of our advertisers operate in or close to the area. We have regular contributions and features from local businesses and organisations which are highly relevant to our readers.
It isn't thrown away each week like a local newspaper. People keep it as a reference until the next issue arrives.
The MELTON MESSENGER has a very high standard of print and production. All artwork can be finished to ensure that your company image is enhanced by its association with our publication and high calibre of fellow advertising businesses
Format & Design
It is an A5 size booklet, stapled, one colour print on white paper with a full colour front and back cover plus inside pages in full colour. The MELTON MESSENGER is printed on glossy paper giving it a very high quality feel. Because of its size, content, look and feel it is kept by the majority of households until the next issue arrives, thereby giving advertisers 'immediacy of access' when their services are required.
