I recently used your magazine to find a local sharpening service and wanted to give you feedback on their performance.
The company I contacted through your magazine was A&R Mowers, who were quick to reply to my call and very proficient in their service.
We highly rate your magazine as a way to find and use local businesses, thank you.

I have been using Rural Trader for advertising my business now for around 12 years I have found it to be the best and most reliable way of creating business, customers appreciate local tradesman so advertising in the Rural trader helps me target specific areas, not like the big companies that we all know to be a bit of a lottery finding a good honest business. Over the years my business has seen some changes and as far as advertising goes Rural Trader have helped me with all of my advertising needs they are a very personal and friendly company and I will be using them for many more years to come.

90% of my work comes from the Rural Trader…I’m always inundated when my advert goes in.

I’ve been advertising in the Rural Trader since day one. I’m very happy with the business it’s brought me in over the years & the staff couldn’t be more helpful.

Just to say thanks for the front page ad. It has worked wonders. Due to the success of this one I am sure this would be a long standing agreement for many years.

We have been using the Rural Trader for a number of year’s and a large amount of our business comes from the adverts placed there. The staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

Thank you very much for the superb advertisement you printed in your April issue for our Open Gardens over Easter. A lot of people who attended told us that they had seen the advertisement.

I advertise in several different publications and formats but I can honestly say that the revenue I spend with the Rural Trader is by far the most effective. For example, following the publication of the August editions of both the Lime and the Blue books, I received almost thirty enquiries, twenty five of which had come through ‘The Trader’ (the other five were word-of-mouth recommendation!). Please convey my thanks to the team and I look forward to many more successful advertising campaigns with you!

I am a small business based in Barrow upon Soar and have used various local advertising options over the years to promote my business and generate interest. I can safely say I have had the most interest generated whenever I place an advert in the Rural Trader and they have now become my publication of choice. The team are very helpful and have even helped design some of our adverts which has been a great help. I know from asking my clients if they want to find someone locally they will always look in the Rural Trader to find out who is available locally, so it makes sound business sense for me to promote my business there too
