FEATURE YOUR BUSINESS IN BIZCOM

Delivered to 10,000 homes in and around St Albans City Centre and within hours (really!) we had emails telling us that people had already got in touch with the businesses who chose to feature in it. Issue 2 had a print run of 12,500!!! and landed at the end of June/early July not only to homes, but to businesses in St Albans, digitally and….. der der der, via audio, so that you can listen on the go. Issues 3 and 4 have also since landed.

The publication is mainly editorial, so not packed full of ads – and the whole purpose of it is where businesses meet the community – so getting over to people the amazing businesses we have here.

So basically you book a space and you can have editorial, images, whatever you want (as long as it fits within the ethos of the publication) within it.
