x2 Successful local area magazines. Excellent ROI, additional growth capacity

$199,000

Successful dual local ‘monthly magazine’ publications with excellent support and loyalty from communities serviced. Financials have returned to pre-COVID19 levels and likely set to increase further.

These magazines have been providing two North Brisbane locations with a comprehensive; what’s on guide, great local stories, news and events for many 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.

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 2 employees as well as 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.
