Advertise with the Oadby Directory
A Vibrant and Growing Community
New people are moving into Oadby each month. These residents may be new to the area and have little local knowledge - the Directory offers the perfect opportunity for businesses to get themselves known to plenty of new potential customers and the new website provides an additional vehicle for getting your business known.
Existing residents also need reminding of the services that are available locally. Busy people may not always know what is on their doorstep. They may not know that your business exists or what it can offer.
The Oadby Directory Works
Oadby residents read and use The Oadby Directory. It is the only directory to focus solely on Oadby and is relevant to all its readers. Its editorials, restaurant reviews, features and competitions make it very readable and it enjoys a highly positive response rate.
We are a locally based business, run by local people for local people. Most of our advertisers operate in or close to Oadby and there is strong evidence to suggest that most people in the UK prefer to use truly local services.
Unlike a local newspaper, the Oadby Directory isn't thrown away, and because of its size, content, look and feel, it is read and kept as a reference guide by the majority of households, until the next issue arrives. The website will contain accurate information as provided by advertisers and the community, so it too is easy to use and make reference to.
High Quality, Low Price
The Oadby Directory represents incredible value. You can get coverage for a whole year (12 issues) for less than the cost of one week in the Leicester Mercury or the Oadby & Wigston Mail, and it costs less than other directories. The website also offers excellent value for money in terms of the packages available and the additional advertising features.
The Oadby Directory has a very high standard of print and production. All artwork is professionally finished to ensure that you look your best and that your company is proud to be featured and associated with a high quality publication. The Oadby Directory utilises 130gm Gloss Art paper throughout with a Full Colour Cover giving a very high quality feel.
More Than Just Adverts
Each month, advertisers are offered their own two page editorial spread. This gives them a depth of coverage that is normally only available at huge expense in other publications. We also feature a regular restaurant reviews and community features.
The Directory is published and distributed monthly, at the beginning of each month. The website will be updated regularly throughout each month to maintain accuracy and revised on a monthly basis to include new advertiser’s details and local events.
