Business description

This is a great business and is suitably poised to appeal to a wide range of buyers;
•    At home and have some spare time during the week 
•    Looking to get into business for the first time
•    Already working in the print/advertising industry and looking to break out and ‘do your own thing’ 
•    An advertising business looking to grow via acquisition

These magazines have been providing two north Brisbane locations with a comprehensive what’s on guide, great local stories, news and events for over five years. Content is split circa 50/50 between feature articles and adverts. This has proven popular with local businesses with a large number having supported the magazines since inception. There is little competition in this space and each publication has further room for growth. 

Local businesses face a real dilemma when it comes to promoting their business; mass advertising has become more expensive, more fragmented, less predictable and less laser guided when it comes to reaching the target audience. 

This business model has successfully claimed a real gap in the market by offering local businesses a targeted audience, constantly communicated to, at a price that all businesses can afford.
