Over the last few weeks, business during Coronavirus has become a bit of a balancing act. Bring enough customers in – but not too many. Be flexible about methods of payment – but cash is risky. Network with as many people as you can – but maybe keep it online.
Many of us are feeling uncertain about where to go with our businesses now; with questions about impending local lockdowns on everybody’s mind, it is difficult to know how to prepare for the next few months. Even the basics are thrown into question… How do we navigate holiday time with employees, and what are our rights as employers? (Rachel Collins – Page 35). And should we be future-proofing our businesses (SWIG – Page 25 ) in case of another national lockdown?
QUAY magazine was founded in October 2019, as a way to bring exposure to positive businesses.
The magazine is a platform that allows businesses to make crucial connections and continue to grow together, facilitating greater collaborations and higher value products and services. It is packed with a range of informative articles, interviews, and insights from local businesses.
Issues may also feature offers and competitions, so readers and clients can get involved and win a prize!
QUAY magazine is based in the South West of England, home to a stunning region known as ‘The English Riviera’. But there is more to it than the ‘sun, sea, and sand’ that springs to mind. This is a dynamic hub of business innovators who want to grow, collaborate, and create great experiences for their customers.
QUAY magazine helps to give them a voice, a platform, and a way to meet like-minded individuals. It is a great way to stay informed, but also to get involved. Do you have a local business? Would you like to grow your client base and make meaningful business connections?
Read on to discover how you can get involved with the magazine, and become part of a growing network of businesses and entrepreneurs who are thriving in the South West.
What We Do
QUAY magazine aspires to raise the profile of positive businesses in the area, empowering them to have a greater impact and reach.
Articles such as interviews and introductions can make readers aware of the service or products a local business provides. Whether they are potential consumers, clients, future collaborators or anything in between, QUAY magazine can help to connect them with businesses like yours.
If you are a business owner or an entrepreneur yourself, the magazine is for you too. We regularly feature articles or insight pieces on particular topics, such as search engine optimisation, networking, or social media.
We feature the insights and opinions of experts and those who are already achieving impressive results in the area. The articles are perfect for productive people who are keen to learn and grow.
QUAY magazine is all about raising profiles, widening reach, and achieving impact for businesses. But it’s also about the people behind them.
The magazine seeks to inspire and motivate readers to aim higher in their professional lives, achieving greater job satisfaction and meeting their true potential. Aspirational interviews and autobiographical pieces help readers to see that they really can achieve their goals and make a difference.
We want to show that the South West may be a great place for a holiday, but it may be an even better place for a business venture!
The region is home to businesses and entrepreneurs who are striving to meet gaps in the market and offer a great range of goods and services. Are you one of them? Don’t forget to get in touch and discover how you could be a part of the next issue of QUAY magazine.
You can get involved with the magazine by reaching out to us in a range of ways. First consider which you think would be most suitable for you: submitting an article, requesting an interview, or placing an advert. We have options for all three!
Don’t forget that we also offer a convenient and affordable ‘Done For You’ writing service. That way, if you have a story or an insight to share but do not wish to write it yourself, we have a solution. Get in touch to discuss your needs and we will be delighted to help.
Visit our dedicated Submit tab on our website to get started. Tell us a bit about yourself and your business, and we will go from there. We would be delighted to read your submitted article on a business topic and consider it for publication. Our standards are high, but we are always keen to hear from local voices.
If you would like to post an advert in the magazine, our readership extends all around the South West and could help to secure you more business. Our affordable advertising rates are below the normal market rate, so there’s never been a better time to get in touch.
QUAY magazine offers an unrivalled opportunity to be part of a growing network of businesses in the South West, seeking to connect with others and publicise their business. You can be a part of our exciting magazine!
We are keen to connect businesses with each another, and to help foster fresh, meaningful relationships.
We appreciate that local businesses can have a hard time widening their outreach. Considerable time and resources are devoted to the business itself — and especially to improving the customer experience — leaving little room for personal growth, innovation, and genuine connections.
That’s where we come in. QUAY magazine is an exciting, accessible way to reach a new range of customers and connections. It is also a tangible new platform, where being featured in the pages can easily be more impactful than just a social media announcement, for example.
If you’ve got a business venture, a product, or an insight to share that you think would bring value to our readers, then we’d love to hear from you!
