About the Business

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.

Key Points

• Home based
• 1 x salesperson and multiple ‘freelancers’
• Monthly publications focussing on two localities
• Print run of 11,000 per publication, stocked in over 750 outlets
• Estimated readership in excess of 44,000 per month
• Long standing and loyal advertisers with top 10 clients accounting for no more than 28% of revenue
• All sales activity (and other duties) managed by a salesperson working 4 days per week
• All other work is outsourced (creative, editorial, photos and printing, etc.)
• Both publications have additional capacity and scope to increase the number pages per issue

The operational platform of this business means the owner has an excellent work/life balance. The business does not rely solely on the owner as it has long term relationships with specialist contracted professionals (international and local contractors). All per-work scoping, work allocation, printing, through to distribution is controlled by these external contractors.
