We’re a small company of three people all living and working in Devon and indeed, passionate about all things Devon – we’re passionate about our lovely county. The company is run by Nigel Jones who’s been publishing in Devon for 21 years. Over this time he’s been closely involved with every aspect of the business, from marketing to production, design, layout, photoshop, photography and sales. He has a wealth of experience and is always happy to talk to businesses and give advice on the marketing of their business, especially if they’re new to this discipline.
We produce a ‘proper’ magazine for Devon and although we’re funded solely by advertising, we endeavour to provide the best content for the magazine we can. I’m confident in saying that many people really love the magazine and when our delivery people take the magazines to our 900+ outlets, they’re pretty much gone within about 3 days. We particularly like to feature towns, villages, architecture, wildlife, local history, countryside, local events and anything interesting and unusual. We’re fairly traditional in our content and find that the public identify the magazine as one they don’t just look at but can actually read! We also like to think that our photographic content is of a high order and receive much feedback on this aspect of the magazine.
We’ve taken on 2 apprentices in the last 4 years and the outcome for them has been good, Charlotte now working with us full time, Lauren with the aid of her experience here has now found a placement that’s funding her Degree in Graphic Design. It’s great to see these youngsters grow in experience and confidence, they’re the next generation and it’s gratifying to be able to help them on their way.
With regard to the service we provide to businesses, we’re keen to give our advertisers real value-for-money and our rates are Devon, not inflated ‘London’ rates. Our advertising rates are about a 1/3rd of our nearest competitor and we’re finding that many of the businesses we help decide to stay with us because of the value and service we provide and the ROI they achieve from working with us.
