We are a local independent publisher of local community magazines, and we're not part of any large magazine corporation or newspaper group. We also run our own distribution company and handle the distribution of our magazines from start to finish. Our four publications are delivered to a total of over 87,000 homes, each and every month.

With each of our community lifestyle magazines, we can help your business reach more local potential clients, than if you were to advertise in any local newspaper. If you are looking for great value local advertising that works, then you should consider adding advertising with Life Publications to your marketing mix.

Our A5 local community magazines are widely read and used by local residents. Most of our advertisers feature month after month, because of the business it generates for them. Our magazines are not thrown away like many local newspapers are - people keep them as a reference for at least the whole month.

Retford Life, Worksop Life, Gainsborough Life, Sherwood Life and Community Spotlight on S66 are not only useful directories, but they are truly magazines in their own right. Each month, each magazine contains articles, competitions, restaurant reviews and community news and features from each of their local areas.

It's simple, simply get in contact with us and we'll talk you through the best options to suit you and your businesses needs. Our design team can even design your advert for you – all at no extra cost!

If you'd like to advertise in our magazines or on our websites, get in touch via the Contact Us page, email directly to enquiries@life-publications.com or call 01427 881565

Submission deadline: 10th of each month

Testimonials

openquotesI first contacted Retford Life to advertise as other businesses had told me how very successful it had been for them. Not only did I advertise, but Life also designed our logo – which is now the iconic K Kleen duster which everyone comments on! We had our vehicle graphics done and ran with the branding throughout all of our marketing materials – many of which Life supplied! The design was better than we could of ever imagined.
Since advertising with Retford Life my sales have increased immensely. It's having a presence along with other reputable companies that wish to be associated with a quality printed magazine. We advertise every month and that's what I'd recommend. I'd say the Life magazines are the number one way that people search for their businesses and services locally - they use the magazines as a reference, at the time when they need your business - so make sure your in the little service bible! I swear by it!
I personally know visiting lots of private homes that people keep this little neat looking book on the coffee table or by the phone as it doesn't get thrown out like the messy unsightly newspaper. Tidy people want a tidy book, so we're in the right place!
Kara Wilkinson, Director and Owner, K Kleen

We started our business three years ago and didn't know where to advertise our 'unique' product. We had heard about the new Gainsborough Life Magazine and thought we would try an advert. The response from our first month's advert was far much more than we had anticipated. We continued to advertise through the summer months and our business really took off. When Leanne and Julian expanded to create Worksop Life, we also expanded our horizons and chose to advertise in there – along with Retford Life too!
Our business has been built on customers who have seen our adverts in these magazines and we have had had tremendous success. We never envisaged that a local magazine could do so much for our small business. Recently we've also advertised within the newer Sherwood Life magazine and not surprisingly we're now receiving the same brilliant response with even more new customers.
I know we would not have had the business success we have experienced if it wasn't for the Life Magazines.
Pat, JP Business Services

Life magazines represent great quality and value for money! Because they're informative – people keep them and this means the advertising works. The staff are dedicated and professional and we receive enquiries from the first day the magazine hits the door mat.

I can strongly recommend the Retford Life for local advertising. They were very happy to promote our organisation and even consented to come and judge our Christmas Cake competition last year. Lovely people to deal with who offer the personal touch.

The support we receive from the Gainsborough Life magazine is simply brilliant. Local events can play a crucial part in helping the community pull together and become more active and supportive of each other. Your publication's help in promoting these events is really appreciated and valued.
Gary Cooke, Gainsborough Town Council, on behalf of Gainsborough Riverside Festival

The Branch has had the good fortune to submit monthly reports and programme information to Life Publications, and we have nothing but praise for the publicity we have received because of it.
Since we've featured within the magazines, membership has increased significantly and people with Parkinson's, their family and friends have become aware that there is support, friendship and a warm welcome awaiting at the Branch meetings.
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved for spreading our sincere aim that "no-one should be alone with Parkinson's".
Chris, Bassetlaw Branch of Parkinson's UK

Thank you so much for never failing to include our articles in your publications. We have reaped the benefits of new Choir members, being able to advertise our activities as a Choir and thus achieving more bookings.
