BEACH MEDIA PUBLICATIONS TESTIMONIALS
Computer Help, Richard Darsa“These publications have proven very effective at providing me with a constant source of high-quality new clients, at a very competitive rate. To add to that, Becky’s service is first class too and she is a pleasure to deal with. Money well spent!”
“We chose to make a commitment to 6 months of advertising as we needed to reach a wider customer base and to remind previous customers to come again to visit us.
The advertising had an immediate impact on our customer numbers. There has been an increase over the first 3 months of 10% which is great. The magazine format works well for us and it is very easy. We send our ideas to the team and they format it for us.”
“We are regular advertisers in the Muswell Flyer and the N8 Communicator. These notebook size glossy mags are jammed full of content and have irresistible readability.
Most importantly we have generated local work and interest through our ad placement and we also view it very positively in terms of being considered part of the local business/services scene.”
“Our hair salon was brand new to the Crouch End area in early 2016. Trying to promote and launch a new venture in an established community seemed very daunting at first and we were unsure where to begin.
However, we need not have feared, as Becky and the team at the N8 Communicator were extremely supportive and alleviated any stress and worry we initially had as a new business. Through advertising within this widely read and respected publication, we were able to show our support within the local area, not to mention forging close bonds with readers who wanted to book appointments as first-time clients after seeing our brand in the magazine month after month.
Do not underestimate the power of print in a world full of chaos. Sometimes all you want is to kick back with a good magazine and a cup of tea – to read all about the new and wonderful things that await you in your local area!”
“Having a regular advert in Muswell Flyer and Highgate Handbook resulted in a number of enquiries and brought regular clients to my social media consultancy.
I can wholeheartedly recommend advertising in Becky’s magazines to any business looking to increase sales and local exposure.”
“I can’t believe that we have been advertising with you for over 14 years. Ever since your very first edition of the Muswell Flyer in July 2005.
Why you may ask? Well first off, the service Becky provides has always been spot on –nothing is ever too much trouble, from sending the advert to proofing & delivery – yes they actually do get delivered (unlike some publications). The response is really good and up there with the likes of the major property portals that we deal with –who said print was dead?
If you want great exposure at not a great cost than these publications are a must for your business.”
“We are a small local family business and we have found the N8 Communicator to be an outstanding local publication with excellent support from Becky (The proprietor) – unlike many local publications this is packed with interesting editorial, local news stories and events. In a nutshell, it is well worth reading from cover to cover.”
“We started advertising in three magazines in May 2015 initially for a four-month run. It has been one of the best decisions we have made in relation to promoting our business in print advertising. It has generated enquiries some of which have resulted in work for us. As a result, we have decided to continue for a further six months. It is an extremely good way to promote businesses among the local community. As a business based in North London, we are always keen to offer services locally and customers seem to like supporting a local business.
The administration of the magazines is excellent – emails are answered promptly, requests dealt with efficiently. Becky is extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. She is also extremely knowledgeable in the field of marketing/advertising and frequently provides subscribers with useful tips.”
Home Care Preferred Barnet“We started our new franchise, Home Care Preferred and were recommended to your magazines through acquaintance and business associates. We were impressed with the very good reach in the respective neighbourhood that the magazine is distributed. Since we started advertising we have had many enquiries and also gained a healthy number of new clients as a result. Becky is a joy to work with and most of the requests are dealt with promptly and efficiently. We highly recommend the magazine for coverage and the friendly service we always receive.”
“I first came across Becky through one of her local magazines, ‘The Highgate Handbook’. Impressed by the high-quality content, I contacted her to book advertising space for my hair salon. Since then she has helped me to create an advert that really packs a punch!
In addition, she has worked with us on a consultancy basis. By showing us effective marketing strategies Becky has made us more visible both on the high street and online. She has a wealth of contacts too who are also now a big part of our journey. It is no exaggeration to say that in Becky Beach I’ve found a real gem!”
“The advert was pretty successful so I was pleased I did it and thanks for arranging it. Thanks for all your help!”
“I discovered the magazines through my local one when it was posted to my house. I decided to advertise in the magazine as I thought it was a good way to increase my profile in specific London areas. The advertising from the magazines never fails to bring in one or two clients a month who see the advert and decide to give me a call.
I am always impressed at how quick you are to respond to all my emails and any queries I have; what has exceeded my expectations has been your offers to help with creating adverts if I needed it.
I would recommend your services to others if they are looking to get their adverts out to a large group of local people, for a good price.”
“We first enquired about advertising when The Barnet Local EN4 was delivered to our shop in Cockfosters. Lots of people don’t know where we are so we needed to get the word out there.
Since then we have received a number of enquiries and leads. We have enjoyed working with you as you are timely and having that personal service makes a difference. We would recommend your services to others as it is reasonably priced advertising coupled with excellent customer service that is friendly, approachable and is no pressure.”
Dance and Fun for Fitness
“Got the recent issue – fab thanks so much! Have had around 8 enquiries and so far three new starters so I feel the investment in flyers and advertising in the magazine is working – hurray!”
“I first heard about the magazines after I received one through my letterbox. We needed some local presence and decided the magazine was a good way to achieve this. Since appearing lots more people are aware of us. We have always found that Becky is incredibly quick to respond to calls and emails.
In addition, Becky is incredibly helpful and will support small local businesses in any way that she can including passing on contact details and assisting with the design of adverts.
We feel overall that the magazines are a very helpful way to raise awareness of your brand.”
Platform 1 Nursery
“We knew about the N21 Directory as the editor’s children attended Platform One Nursery for many years. We decided to advertise as we wanted a local magazine to promote the nursery to local residents. We knew the match was right as our prospective parents are predominantly local residents and read N21 Directory magazine.
We enjoy working with Becky because she exudes enthusiasm, support and a professional approach to my business needs. I always recommend N21 Directory magazine to local businesses.”
We started Mostons Accountants in 2009 and the N21 Directory came to our offices in Winchmore Hill. We started advertising as we thought it was a great way to let the local businesses and residents know we were in the area. Since then we have had many prospective clients (too many to count) tell us that they saw us in the directory.
Becky’s personal involvement and desire to help us has been a constant in all our communications with her. We know others would appreciate the same excellent service and always recommend the magazine when we see a start-up in the area.
The Muswell Flyer has always come through my door and when I launched my business, The Green Shed, I decided to advertise to attract business because the magazine has a good reach.
It was a good decision as advertising has resulted in more people becoming more aware of The Green Shed. It’s been great working with you as you really care about the magazine and your customers. You’re generous, kind, approachable and lovely to deal with.
I’d absolutely recommend people to advertise with you. It’s a great magazine and very useful.
I received the Muswell Flyer magazine as I am a resident of Muswell Hill. I wanted to spread the name of our business in the local as it’s a new business without a High Street presence. I’ve been receiving leads from local residents who have seen the advert in the magazine. It has been slow but that is the nature of mortgage business as not everyone needs one straight away but they know we are around to help.
As well as being quick to respond to any queries, you’ve also helped by pointing out other ways I could promote the business. I would highly recommend the magazines to any business, including ones like us who have a slower response rate.
