Welcome to The Grapevine
The Coronavirus will cause a lot of disruption to many businesses but we are here and it's BUSINESS AS USUAL.
The Grapevine Magazine is packed full of information about local products and services in and around the Walsall and Cannock areas.
We offer low cost, quality, effective local advertising.
The Grapevine was established in 2011 and has proved very popular with local residents and businesses alike. It is distributed, FREE, to over 13000 selected homes and businesses in and around Essington, New Invention, Coppice Farm Estate, Bloxwich, Little Bloxwich, The Turnberry Estate, Newtown, Great Wyrley and Cheslyn Hay.
The Grapevine Cannock edition is distributed, FREE, to over 8100 homes and businesses in and around Four Crosses, Shoal Hill, Norton Canes and Hawks Green.
Advertising works best when done consistently.
Not all the readers will be in the market for your product or service all the time. By maintaining a constant presence in the magazine you will be at the forefront of the readers mind when they are ready to buy. To encourage you to promote your business more effectively we offer discounts for your long term commitment.
In the current economic climate it is now more important than ever for people to know about your business.
Many small businesses have no ‘shop front’ and so are unknown to the local community.
The Grapevine Magazine can help to get your business recognised by the local community and so generate new business.
As an independent publication, (we are not part of any franchise) you can expect to deal with the same person each time. Advertisers like the friendly, none pushy approach and re-advertise month after month. So, if you would like to advertise your business in and around the Walsall and Cannock areas you should give The Grapevine a try.
Our rates are very reasonable and we also offer discounts for longer bookings.
Check out our testimonial page and read what advertisers have to say. Please don’t hesitate, give me a call and we can discuss your requirements.
Book early to avoid disappointment!
