SW Directories – The Publishers – Susan & Leslie Woolford
We wanted to create a handy, truly local magazine & directory that would help publicise small businesses to the local population. With costs kept low to offer great value advertising, smaller companies – especially those without a ‘shop front’ – are able to promote their services in a quality publication to the people who really want to use them – the locals.
The cost to advertise compared to local newspapers and not-so-local A4 magazines is minimal, meaning small businesses can afford to show the locals what they offer over a number of months.
We have lived in the Newport area for several years and know it well. But it is through running the magazine that we have met a whole new part of the community – the business community, who help to make Newport the great place that it is.
Through the magazine we have had the opportunity to talk to many residents we would not have otherwise met, it is wonderful to have so much support and we always welcome the opportunity to talk with residents and business owners whenever possible.
