Now that the dust has settled on the launch of our brand new local magazine, Halifax Directory, we thought we’d check in, and look back at as to why we launched magazine number two!
We have been running for 14 years, and are currently on issue number 159 with our August edition.
We’re not the only local directory magazine in Halifax, there are several others, but we all have our own areas that we cover. We deliver to areas in the HX1 and HX3 postcode, and to shops, the tourist information centre and a few other places in Halifax town centre. We’re proud of the community that our magazine has built up over the past 14 years, and we have our readers comment on the quality of our magazine, and the “keep-a-bility” of it.
We realised that there were areas of Halifax which didn’t receive any kind of local directory, and we decided to change that, hence Halifax Directory was born.
We’re now 2 issues in, and currently working on our third issue, and the magazine is growing from strength to strength. We’re getting great feedback from our new readers, not just about the content, but the fresh look we went for in the magazine.
A big thank you to all those advertisers of Skircoat Green Directory who decided to advertise in our first edition of the new magazine, and to those who are newly advertising with us, for having faith in us and our new venture. And to Nicola from the sale team who has worked so hard to fill our magazines each month!
Teresa Plant Acupuncture has advertised in the Skircoat Green Directory for a few issues, and she said “Having used SGD to successfully promote my new acupuncture practice, it seemed natural to advertise in their new directory to continue our successful partnership.”
We’re very excited for the growth of the Halifax Directory, and cannot wait until it gets as big as this magazine!
Each Directory is delivered to 8,000 homes with a combined estimated readership of over 35,000!
Advertisers also appear on our website and our Facebook pages which currently have over 3600 followers.
