OUR READERS

  • We deliver our magazines by hand to over 80% of all local homes and are picked up by many thousands of visitors to the area. We are the only magazines that are locally delivered door-to door.

  • We reach most second home-owners in the area – often the biggest spenders on restaurants, art galleries, local building trades, kitchen and bathroom suppliers etc. Second home owners rely on us to help identify local services & trades. 

  • Many readers are affluent retirees to the area, second home-owners, vacationing visitors and owners of local businesses etc. 

 

A quality & engaged readership

  •   Over 75%* readers read every issue. More than half say they keep issues for a year or more. 

 

  • Over 50%* readers rate By The Dart '10 out of 10' as an interesting and useful community magazine -  nearly 4 out of 5 readers scored it '9 out of 10' or better.

  • 95%* of readers read features on local businesses and look at adverts (half doing so regularly). Over 90% refer back to our magazines for information about local busineses such as contact details etc.

  • Other magazines e.g. Devon Life, South Hams Lifestyle have far less relevance to the local area and reach far fewer readers.

We reach three times as many local people as the local newspaper and five times as many readers than any other magazines - 30,000 adult readers in South Devon and 300,000 online across the South West and the UK.

“Print marketing is still the most direct, transparent, easy to implement and productive form
of local marketing.”

“Dripping-tap marketing is a way to keep your business in front of potential customers to ensure a smooth flow of work.”

  • Our magazines have ‘coffee table’ appeal; their content ensures they are kept for future reference.

  • Advertising in our magazines has a long shelf life (the ‘dripping-tap’ effect) and offers multiple, affordable solutions for all types of advertisers to build long term recognition and reputation for their businesses. 

  • Newspapers can be significantly more expensive and recycled too quickly to build long term awareness.

  • Using our magazines for long-term brand building frees up resources to spend elsewhere e.g. online, on social media, point of sale etc. 

  • Our online platforms such as www.bythedart.co.uk and social media offer highly affordable campaigns to help your business be seen online.
