Why choose us

It Works - Tried & Tested

Our monthly publications are read by over 204,000 readers each month, and are distributed free to over 84,100 homes. The magazines are widely read cover to cover, and more importantly because we are trusted, Life magazines are the number one way in which residents source local products and services.

Value For Money
The magazines represent incredible value for a full month’s advertising. Bookings are available to suit all budgets and types of businesses. Our publications are A5, full colour, and are designed and printed to the highest standards.
Higher Circulation

They all have a higher circulation than many other local publications, delivered directly to over 81,700 homes and businesses each month. We are proud of our circulation figures and by delivering house-to house we’re not relying on people picking up a copy if they choose, meaning that you will reach a wider audience.

Working with us


Unlike other forms of media, our magazines are retained as a directory of products and services and are referenced throughout the month, giving you the chance for your advert to be seen time and time again.

Free Advert Design

Free advert design is included within the rates. Our in-house graphic design team will work with you to capture your ideas and create an advert aimed specifically at your target demographic.

Business to Business

In addition to residential homes, each month we hand deliver to over 2,000 business premises in the North Nottinghamshire, North Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire areas. If your target customers are other local businesses, then advertising with Life Publications would suit your demographic.

Interesting Articles and Features

Our publications are not only a useful directory but are magazines in their own right. Each edition contains interesting articles and topical features.

Community News and Features

Local residents value and trust the publication to provide news and information about what is happening in and around the community, from local groups, clubs and societies. If it’s happening in our distribution areas, they’ll find it in the magazine.

Online Presence

As well as producing printed magazines for the local community we have on online business directory on our website too. As long as you have a ongoing advert in our magazine you’ll receive an entry in our online directory, boosting your digital presence.
