A monthly community magazine and business directory for the residents of Caterham and surrounding villages.
The Caterham Link aims to provide a high quality business directory with full glossy colour adverts for local businesses at an affordable price but with a large enough circulation for the advertisers to see real benefits to their business in advertising in the magazine. Local information and interesting articles entice readers to keep the magazine by their telephone until the next edition.
With no more than 4 adverts on the page your advert will not be lost amongst a sea of other advertisers unlike some other publications. We also offer other services such as leaflet distribution in our area.
If you wish to book a premium page (cover or centre pages) it is essential to book in advance as these pages are often booked several months in advance.
Benefits to advertisers
Price. If you wish to advertise your service or product to residents living in this area, The Caterham Link represents incredible value. You can get coverage for a whole year (12 issues) for almost the same cost as just two weeks in the local newspaper.
It is truly local. The Caterham Link is produced by someone living locally. 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.
Affluent area. In the most recent council figures, The CR3 area is shown as virtually all A's, B's and C1's. Disposable income in the area is well above average.
Longevity. It isn’t thrown away each week like a local newspaper. People keep it as a reference for the whole month.
Quality. The Caterham Link 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 a high quality publication.
Editorial opportunities. One or two advertisers each month are featured in their own two page editorial spread. This gives them a depth of coverage that is normally only available at huge expense in other publications.
The Caterham Link is published and distributed monthly, on or around the first weekend of the month.
It is delivered to over 5400 homes in CR3 as well as being available in local shops and businesses in the area.
Format & Design
It is a full colour A5 size booklet.
The Caterham Link is printed on heavy gloss 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.
