Here's what some of our advertisers think about Local Focus magazines:

Michael, Michael Chandler Estate Agents "Having advertised mainly on the front cover of the Local Focus magazines in Carryduff and BT8 for a number of years, I have always been impressed with the service and response received. I believe people appreciate a local business focusing on local matters. Deidre is an absolute pleasure to work with and takes great care in ensuring the magazines are delivered when they should be. It is a testament to the service they are celebrating 10 years in business – I am looking forward to working with the team for the next 10!"


Bernie, Beechill Inn

“I've advertised at Local Focus now for over 5 years and without doubt can guarantee that it has improved the Beechill Inn profile considerably. Deirdre is also a great at helping me construct my ads so that they have maximum impact. Without doubt it’s just right for our business.”


Alastair, BOSServices "We had a great response to our our ad for staff.  We had 7 return callers and appointed 2 part-time staff.  

The ad really worked for us and for very little outlay"


Lynsey, Lynsey Quinn Hairdressing "I have used the Local Focus magazines to advertise my business from opening Lynsey Quinn Hairdressing in 2010.  

It's a fantastic way to reach new local customers.  

I have always been more than happy with the work they have done for me. Deirdre makes it very simple and is always very helpful with new ideas on how to make my ad stand out."


Graeme Johnston, Johnston’s Gardening "Before advertising with Local Focus Magazines, I'd used the lot - BT phone book, yellow pages, and local papers - lots of money spent and only small amount of calls.

I find with Local Focus it's a smaller audience but a bigger more professional looking ad for less money, which clearly appeals to customers as the calls pour in.

More customers in a smaller local area saves on diesel costs too!!"

Emma, Clarke Cunningham Tree Maintenance "We are always impressed with the response from our advert each month, it really does pay for itself. The magazine is a great way to advertise in our local area and we find them very helpful to have on the desk. Great customer service all round!"

David, Window Cleaning Services "I've spent a fortune advertising in local newspapers and the yellow pages without a single call. The BT8, Local Focus and Carryduff Focus magazines have been a driving force bringing new business. A Big thank you to all our customers."

Janine and Anne, Aquarius Laundry "The BT8 Focus Magazine is an effective way of letting local people know of our business and we have seen a noticeable increase in new customers following our advertisements."

John Dempsey, SCB Taxis "As a reader what I like about Local Focus magazines is that you have local services on your doorstep. Services you can trust. Everything from Grass cutting to garden design, Taxis to coach hire and House cleaning to renovations.

As an advertiser:

• Local advertising

• Local customers

• Focussing on the needs of the community

Just what our business needs."

Richard Merron, Cleaning Doctor "The Carryduff Focus has been very good for business. I'm getting quite a few calls every week, especially prior to holiday periods."
