What We Do
QUAY Magazine was established to help YOU!
We’ve created this publication to help great local businesses grow, develop, and gain a ‘foot in the door’ with larger companies. Right from the start, the goal of QUAY Magazine was to take our talented businesspeople, and amplify their voices to the world. Through providing helpful articles, top tips from industry experts, battle-tested marketing advice, affordable advertising rates, and details of local networking events, we’ve aimed to provide all the tools you need to grow your business, and forge valuable new connections.
Our website now contains an archive of the most valuable articles from previous editions, and you can read every one of them for FREE. As a matter of principle, we’ll be regularly uploading new articles to the site, so you can keep on learning from our expert contributors, and keep picking up new insights and clear, actionable strategies for growing your business.
In short, we want to help you flourish!
What We Need
QUAY Magazine has come a very long way in a short space of time.
Through collaborating with a whole host of talented businesspeople (some of whom have offered us generosity beyond our wildest expectations), and after having our wonderful team put in a great deal of time and effort, we’ve established an engaged, loyal readership base of thousands, who eagerly consume every edition we put out – whether online or in print.
But we can do so much more. All we need is a little help from you. Our platform seeks to boost local businesses to greater heights; the bigger we become, the more we can help you. In other words, you can consider Quay Magazine to be a rising tide which raises all ships.
There are several ways in which you could help us to expand our reach, and offer our contributors the most exposure possible.
Firstly, you can spread the word of what we’re doing, by telling your friends, family and contacts about our vision and our goals, which now more than ever will be of utmost importance to vast numbers of businesspeople, as they strain against the twin challenges of a global pandemic, and an economic depression.
As we keep banging the drum about our mission, we hope that those in positions of influence will be forced to take note, and help us offer all the support we can to the local business community.
Next, just as all of you do, we have bills to pay. So, if you recognise the value of what we’re doing, please consider purchasing an advert in QUAY Magazine, so we can continue to expand our platform, and build a publication which will be read by as many powerful decision makers as possible.
There are many different advertising options available, so we’ll almost certainly have something to suit you. As a multifaceted digital, print, and design business, we can get you noticed – not only in print – but across the internet as well, and we offer design and marketing services of the highest quality, at price points which are within the reach of small businesses and new startups.
If you’d like to discuss working together, or if you feel you can help us in other ways, please call Eleanor Stafford, the founder of QUAY Magazine, on 01803 212 805.
We are always keen to proceed in a spirit of collaboration and mutual benefits, so in short, please help us to help you!
