Steve Perrone, Crescent Landscapes
The success of my business is down to my adverts in the Essential Guide when I launched. I advertised on a regular basis and am now booked up until this time next year.
Louise Snelson, Time for Pets
The Essential Guide is a fantastic source for local advertising. One thing I liked was they didn’t pester or push me. My business is now getting a steady stream of calls, and did so from the first day I advertised.”
Gerry Palmer, Gerry’s Kitchen
I have advertised my Personal Training & Massage Therapy studio in two editions of the Essential Guide magazines for many years now. I also write a regular editorial page in each edition, in which I offer relevant health and fitness advice to readers. I get at least as many enquiries from this as I do from my website. More importantly, the enquiries are all from local people, some of whom have read my articles and seen my advertisement for several months before contacting me. It has helped to increase my profile throughout south Warrington enormously. I would recommend it to any local business.
Andy Moore, APM Personal Training, Warrington

We have used The Essential Guide for several years and see it as a great way to reach a local audience. Knowing the magazine reaches people in their homes is a reassuring way to advertise the college.
Andrew Moores, Marketing Officer, Priestley College
It has been a great way of increasing our presence and letting people know what we actually do.
Warrington Youth Club
We had a fantastic response from our recent advert in the Essential Guide magazine. People obviously keep the magazines as we’re still taking bookings from the previous month’s issue. We had a wide variety of jobs from our advert and I would highly recommend advertising with the Essential Guide magazines. It really works.
Phil Harper, On Time Travel
This Guide is a ‘must read’ booklet if you want to know what’s going on in the area and where you can get access to essential services. With masses of unwanted junk mail dropping through your door these days, it is really refreshing and valued that the Essential Guide is delivered completely free, has interesting articles and provides contacts for a complete spectrum of trades and retail people whether it be plumbers, gardeners, electricians, etc.
Geoff Harden, local resident
Gives real insight into what matters to a small organisation aiming to build its social enterprises so that Learning Disabled Adults have rewarding work, learning and development. It gives an absolutely up to date snapshot of what’s available – and what’s going on locally.
Julie Groom, Walton Lea Partnership
A great source for contacting local businesses if you want that job doing. It also carries some very interesting articles and supports community activities. A real local publication.
Brain Spooner, local resident
It’s actually relevant and informative about what goes on in the Lymm community with articles actually worth reading … a genuinely useful guide to local services.
I’ve just received the latest Leigh magazine and the feature you’ve put together looks fantastic. Thank you so much for all of your hard work.
Nick Orde-Powlett, MD, Trust in Blue
Its gets to where you need it to and generates customers locally.

I’ve been advertising with the Essential Guide for the past four years. During that time I have gained 30 new customers each year as a direct result of my adverts in the Essential Guide, with 39 new customers in 2016.
My Slimming World groups focus on helping people get to their dream weight, and I want to thank the team at Essential Guide for helping me do this.

Regular adverts definitely work, as 70% of my customers find my business this way.
