GOOD TASTE FOR CIRCULATION

template created by SK

 

We have managed to reinstate the circulation of Good Taste to Members, which means you  won’t have to collect them.

Some members have requested a larger number to take to shows and markets.

The next edition is due to be printed during August for Autumn time.

Can you please let us know by 20th July if you either do not wish to receive copies of Good Taste to give to your customers or how many copies you would like to receive to distribute for a 3 month period.  Another edition will be out in November.

THIS COULD BE YOU!

Good Taste Distribution for Members

Following the changes in production of Good Taste announced in early Autumn, there have been some changes in the methods employed in distribution of Good Taste Magazine.

The adverts and listings you have invested in will still be as widely dispersed as previously via partners and members who are supporting us in this challenging economic climate.

Members are still entitled to their free copies to use as an engagement tool with customers but we are unfortunately not in the position to have them delivered directly to your business.

Some of our members and our new print partner have very kindly offered to act as distribution points.  There are several ways in which you can obtain your free copies.

By contacting the following you can have your copies ready for you to collect when you are out and about.

Consumers will be able to access their free copies by subscribing and this can be done online or by contacting us.
Lincolnshire Co-op will offer an additional in county delivery point at over 80 stores throughout the county.

Magazines will also continue to be distributed at events such as the Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair.

Did you save money?  – An eighth of a page advert in 2016 will have an annual cost  of £259.20 compared to the previous annual rate of £452.

GOOD TASTE MAGAZINE – AUTUMN 2015

Pocklingtons Pies

Following successful discussions with Lincolnshire Echo, Lincolnshire Chamber and Select Lincolnshire are pleased to announce that the Autumn/Winter edition 22 of Good Taste will be published mid November, in time for the Food and Gift Fair at Lincolnshire Showground.  The new edition will maintain the look and feel of the existing magazine which has been supported by an annual circulation, both in and out of County, of over 100,000.  This annual circulation will be maintained.

Moving forward for 2016 we will see four editions per year and this will give additional opportunity for features on the best our membership has to offer.  This will include your events, news, quirky stories, celebrations and awards successes along with recipe and editorial opportunities.  Lincolnshire Echo will support the continued presence of Good Taste and the audience of the magazine.  A media pack with extremely competitive rates has been created and this will shortly be with you from Lincolnshire Echo.  This is a really exciting opportunity to build on the past 10 years with a proven circulation to consumers of 30,000 plus and those additional circulations at events and member points of sales both in and out of county.

Plans for the coming season:

Tell us if you have a favourite seasonal recipe, what is it and why.  Do you have an alternative offer for Christmas.  Picnic lunch for winter, do you work on christmas day, tell us about your day.  What does the season mean to you and your business.

I am sure you will appreciate that our relationship with Lincolnshire Echo will give us wider marketing opportunities and Lincolnshire Echo will be with us to celebrate at our new event in October
