Let us do the creating

We have been designing and creating adverts for many years. We understand what catches people’s eyes and how to get a message across to the readers. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding artwork FREE of charge to anyone wishing to advertise in the magazine. We will always send advertisers a visual for approval, before anything goes to print.

Quick info when you need it

Many of our readers inform us that our magazine is kept every month, as a handy reference for trades and services in the local area. The Network Magazine is also available online, reaching out to people who may not be on the delivery route and readers on the go. It also provides our advertisers with even more exposure for their business.

Our 5 main categories are: –

The categories rotate each month, so regular advertisers NEVER remain towards the back of the magazine every month.

We have been committed to The Network Magazine since 2005 and can fully recommend the concept. The Network Magazine understood the requirements of our business and its needs and historically we knew they could deliver. Thanks to The Shenfield and Brentwood Network Magazines' efforts we have generated a larger database and our clientele has grown dramatically. The decision to continue each quarter was made not just on price but also because of the response we received and from taking out a larger advert, we noticed more enquiries were made due to our advert in the Magazine which equalled more work and more profit/business. Network Magazines' Directors, Philip Scott and David Fuller have been professional and courteous at all times and the scheme has been a great benefit to Abbey Antiques & Furnishings/The Abbey Group. We have no hesitation in recommending Network Magazine to future companies/businesses but should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The guidance and support from the network team to assist with my website and advertising in this magazine has been very professional. Many thanks
