Becky Breeze - Head of Sales & Marketing, Coopers Waste
We have advertised in Penkridge Stafford & Cannock brochures since we moved to Stafford last May. I can’t express how much this has impacted on our sales and recognition around the areas.
We monitor where our sales come from, so we know its working. Not only are the brochures brilliant quality, Lisa and the team are lovely, a pleasure to work with. Whether you are a new company starting up, or want to boost sales, I strongly recommend you giving this a try.
I can’t thank you ladies enough!
Daphne Sharp - Monthly Alzheimer's Support Evenings (MASE)
The MASE is an unfunded charity group which currently helps over 500 carers and their cared for each month.
We are truly thankful for support given to us by everyone at The Stafford Directory. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the team and when running fundraisers, whenever possible, we are allocated space in the magazine. For a local charity to have the support of such a prestigious booklet which actually reaches all the areas our MASE groups cover is just incredible. Since taking out more advertisements in The Stafford Directory last year our numbers attending the groups have increased by approximately 20%. On a personal note: when dealing with any of the team I am always made to feel special and valued. How lovely it is to speak to friendly and helpful staff who will ALWAYS go the extra mile to support our charity.

I just wanted to write a few words to say a big thank you to all the team at the Penkridge advertiser. We have had a great response to the advert placed with you, you always are such nice people to deal with and have our best interests at heart.

Sarah at Croft Architecture
We saw great results from the very first issue. It’s proven to be a good decision for us as The Stafford Directory is so widely read and trusted by the local community.
Lisa is a great advocate for the company and her advice has really helped us to make the right decisions with our campaigns. She’s been there to assist evert step of the way and it feels like nothing is too much trouble. It’s great to feel so linked into the local community which Lisa really helps to drive.
We can’t recommend Lisa and The Stafford Directory team highly enough!
Craig Carr - The Drive Cleaners
We have been advertising in both The Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser for 3 years now and I can honestly say I can’t fault it. We get plenty of enquiries from both magazines and I wouldn’t consider stopping my adverts, if I did my business would certainly take a lot less calls than it does now! Carole and Jenny are fantastic at what they do and are always there to answer any questions you may have. Keep up the good work
Adrian Richards from Penkridge Cattery
Like all small businesses we need to advertise to constantly secure new customers. Our business attracts most of its customers from within a 10 to 20 mile radius and we find that local advertising has given us the best results so far. The Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser has the ideal catchment area with extensive coverage of the local villages and towns serving over 10,000 homes. The booklet size and content makes it very convenient for households to keep and renew every month and its free to every home! I have regularly seen the magazines in homes and businesses who use it as a source of reference when searching a local trade or business to meet their need. We have used both publications since they began and will continue to use them as they expand coverage across the local community as we find it money well spent!
Iain at Countrywide Caravan Services
I have used the magazines for the last two years to promote my business and it has generated many bookings which have lead to countless referrals, I no longer use any other form of advertising. It’s a great way to target customers locally. Highly recommended.
Rick at Penkridge Fencing
I have using The Penkridge Advertiser and The Stafford Directory for around 4 years now. The response from my advert has been fantastic and I am really pleased with feedback I get on a monthly basis from customers living in the local area. I would highly recommend using these mags to any business owner as it has increased my work load significantly since that start of my advertising campaign. Thanks to the team and keep up the good work!
Hilary Hughes at Sew Many Things
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I appreciated all the help and support you gave me when I set up Sew Many Things in Penkridge. My business has gone from strength to strength and many of my customers have come to me from both Stafford and Penkridge magazines. Thank you so much
Lynne at Penkridge Parish Council
The team are great, they assist and advise if required, nothing is too much trouble and the final advert is well above expectations!
Railway Dental - Penkridge
A great looking publication always with an eye catching cover. Would not hesitate to advertise in the Penkridge Advertiser again. It’s A5 size great to pick up. Very professional service with all editorial staff happy to work with us to achieve the exact image we wanted for the opening of our new dental practice. We were very impressed with their design layout and clever use of photos. A very experienced and friendly team to work with. Many new enquiries have been as a direct response to the advertisement
Rich at Inspired Coaching
We found Carole & Jennifer really helpful when we were looking to promote our business. They advised us on the best format and placement for our ad. This resulted in a great response when the magazine was published. We will be advertising again and do not hesitate to recommend their magazines as a cost effective means of getting your message out to people
Matt at Penkridge Market
We regularly place adverts with the Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser, the magazines are always excellent and we find that we get a very good response from its readers. Jen and Carole are always helpful and can place adverts at very short notice. We recommend both publications to any other local businesses!
Adam at Mecure Hatherton House Hotel
The fact that your mags come out at the same time every month gives us the opportunity to tell our customers about our events for the forthcoming month. This is really helpful for us. We don’t use mags and leaflets that are distributed with newspapers because the response is not good. Many thanks.
Anne at The Guildhall Shopping Centre, Stafford
Thank you so much for the support you have shown the Guildhall Shopping Centre over the last 18 months. There are many monthly magazines and periodicals that we could choose to advertise in, but the Stafford Directory has always worked well for us as the magazine is delivered to homes in our key target areas. It has been a pleasure to work with Carole and Jenny who have always shown great interest in the Guildhall and shown creative design skill in the articles they have produced for us.
Gary Chambers Proprietor
We have been advertising in The Penkridge Advertiser, Stafford Directory and Cannock Local since our business began in 2014.
Demand for our products isn’t there every month, but our view has always been that consistent messaging in the magazines, every month, is one of the key ways to build our brand in the areas where we are most active.
We are delighted with the return that we have had on this investment over the years and the team are a pleasure to work with.
