Magazines are the UK’s most trusted news source!
Latest Ofcom reports confirm that magazines are the strongest rated media vehicle, with 80% rating it for trustworthiness over that of just 39% for social media. Magazines also came out top in all other areas including high quality of product, impartiality, accuracy and most importantly it is the vehicle that helps people to make decisions.

Context is paramount
Print advertising provides unique strengths and assets and is vastly more effective for providing a safe and positive environment for brand building and awareness.

One of the great advantages of magazine advertising is that brands can amplify their message via clever contextual placement. Print obviously packs a punch when it comes to capturing consumers’ undivided attention, and this appetite for magazine content presents a unique opportunity to maximise the impact of your campaign message. Aligning an advert with what’s happening on the rest of the page can make for a clever, compelling campaign.

Emotion is key to decision-making
Print publications that consistently offer readers high-quality, reliable content develop credibility, and advertisers can easily leverage this credibility.

Known as the “halo effect,” brands who place adverts in respected print publications, such as Sevenoaks Sports, receive the same positive feelings from readers that are associated with the publication itself. This means your adverts can be seen as completely trustworthy, which makes generating leads and sales much easier.

The long-lasting nature of magazines also guarantees your campaign a longer ‘life’. Magazines are read and re-read, ensuring that your campaign can still be generating exposure for your brand weeks – or even months – further down the line.
