  • We have been very impressed the results we’ve seen from advertising in the Mandurah Coastal Times and the Weekend Courier. I definitely recommend for any small business to go for newspaper advertising as it’s definitely worked for us. As long as you use continuity in your advertising, you will definitely see people through your door.

  • Advertising in our community newspaper really helps us to reach our customers – so much so, we’ve been advertising in the Western Suburbs Weekly for 17 years! As a small business owner, I know that we can spend a lot of money on advertising and at the end of it; you’re not sure what works. For us, print advertising has worked. We get people through the doors that have seen our ads in the paper, and they want to buy a specific piece of jewellery. It really has an impact.
