Magazine advertising is highly effective when the magazine is being read. Here at Mayhem! we make sure that we give our readers top quality content. We provide quality, interesting articles and interviews – combined with superb distribution we make sure that your advert is seen.

We’ve created the perfect print advertising model for you to let our readers know about your business, here are some of the fantastic testimonials we have received from our clients:

Nick Stockdale from the The Canvas Printing Company has advertised in Mayhem! for the past few issues. He said:

“I like the fact that Mayhem! can be picked up in a variety of places from shopping centres to pubs. It covers our catchment area and is an excellent read!

Will Beasley, Manager of Laser Quest @ Action Stations advertised in Mayhem! to help launch his new business, he recently said:

“We approached Mayhem! Magazine before we recently opened our new Laser Quest arena in the Historic Dockyard with the view to promote and publicise our opening and boost visitor numbers. The service we received was incredible. Simone, Mayhem’s Sales Manager, was not only friendly and helpful, she added a personal touch to the proceedings which made Mayhem a fantastic company to deal with. Their prices are fair, their coverage is great and our first promotional offer with them went down an absolute treat! We’d certainly recommend them to anyone and everyone, looking to spread the word about a new product. Thanks Simone and everyone at Mayhem!”

Linda Fitzegerald from Dress Code in Albert Road, Southsea said:

“When we heard about Mayhem! Magazine being launched last year we were quick to get involved with such an ambitious project. Mayhem! is the first local free magazine I’ve come across that offers the readers and local businesses alike so much. Each month I enjoy reading the variety of articles and therefore I am confident that readers are picking it up and seeing our advert. Dress Code have experienced a visible lift in custom since advertising and plan to continue advertising with Mayhem! Magazine as and when we are able to. Thanks Mayhem!”

Chris Fleming from online clothing store Valencourt Apparel was so impressed he reserved the fashion shoot for the May 2012 issue! Here is what he had to say:

“We advertised last year with Mayhem! Magazine and have had a great response from just the one advert we placed. This is probably the best produced free magazine I’ve come across, the staff have been extremely helpful and patient with us and have accommodated any ideas we’ve had with great professionalism. I’d recommend this magazine to any businesses wanting to build a bigger audience in the Portsmouth area. After being so warmly welcomed in by the Mayhem! team I definitely plan to advertise in future issues of the magazine.”

Nando’s in Portsmouth are very pleased with the marked increase in footfall. The branch manager, Nicky Clarke said:

“There has been a marked increase in visitors to our branch of Nando’s which has been a clear result of advertising in Mayhem! Magazine. We also have a branded magazine stand in store, from which we’ve noticed Mayhem! being quickly snapped up by visitors to Nando’s of all ages. We continually advertise with Mayhem! not only to push current offers but also to create more brand awareness. Although Nando’s is a national brand, we market our businesses on an individual basis, and the value of concentrated advertising in a magazine of this quality has had a great influence on our restaurant’s success and increased popularity..” You can view one of the Nando’s advert at: http://issuu.com/Mayhemmagazine/docs/issue6_april2012/3

The Kings Theatre in Southsea were very quick to join Mayhem! Magazine with a half page advert in the first issue and supportive of a high quality magazine for Portsmouth. Here are some thoughts from Helen Young the Marketing Supervisor:

“Mayhem! Magazine really impressed us. In particular the quality of the print, but also the extensive and targeted distribution model they have employed. It is a welcome fact that you can’t go anywhere without seeing a copy of the magazine! We have no doubt that Mayhem! Magazine will continue to rise in popularity both with its target readership and as a method of advertising for businesses who will reap the rewards.” You can view one of the Kings Theatre adverts designed by Mayhem! Magazine and now published online at: http://issuu.com/mayhemmagazine/docs/issue6_april2012/74

The direct increase in gym memberships and visitors from advertising with Mayhem! Magazine is clear with Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing in Portsmouth. Ollie Trimby shares some of the recent results with us:

“We were given the chance to offer a guest pass to Mayhem! Magazine readers. Within 2 days of the issue going public we had our first visitors and by the end of the first week one of those had joined. Over the following 6 weeks we have had a steady stream of visitors in using the voucher from the magazine and so decided to step up and discuss the cost of a full advert. We are looking forward to seeing it in the next issue and reaping the benefits I’m confident will come from it.”
