About Us Editor Picture

Debbie Giri – editor of yourelmbridge magazine

yourelmbridge is a well-established local magazine that is delivered to 26,000 homes in the Elmbridge area 10 times per year. Each issue has plenty to keep readers interested including local news, what’s on in the area, lifestyle articles, recipes, competitions and puzzles.

I took the magazine over in September 2016 from its previous editor who had been publishing the magazine for over 10 years. As my first step into publishing, I have enjoyed learning the ropes and bringing some fresh ideas to the magazine.

Nowadays there are loads of local magazines to choose from, so why should local businesses choose yourelmbridge for advertising?

Value – yourelmbridge offers great value for print advertising locally. We have a large distribution compared to other local magazines and offer very competitive pricing.

Format & Design – Each magazine is a colour A5 size booklet, printed on heavy gloss paper with stunning professional photographs on the gloss cover, giving it a very high-quality feel.

Each issue contains articles written by a professional journalist or an expert contributor.

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. It’s handy for consumers and a powerful tool for advertising in Elmbridge.

It is truly local – Each magazine is produced by someone living locally – me! 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.

Targeted audience – yourelmbridge is hand posted to 13,000 selected homes and businesses in this area every issue.  We rotate the delivery route giving our advertisers more for their money than any other comparable publication in the area.

In the most recent Elmbridge council review, the KT8, KT10, KT12 and KT13 areas are 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 newspaper. People keep it as a reference for the whole month. With competitions and features, the magazines are interesting and entertaining.

Quality – yourelmbridge 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.

And finally….because it works! – If you want new customers and to increase your profits then advertising in yourelmbridge is the way to do it.  But don’t take our word for it, see what our customers say about us!
