We have grown our market share while newspaper advertising has been solely with the Standard such that we are now back to number 1 in St Johns with 18.4% of the market ahead of Connells on 15% and Allan Morris on 11%. In addition we have run a 3 month campaign for the student market and this year we have trebled our student rental stock from last year, a market we were already the market leader.

Dear Solihull Editor,

On behalf of our Local Team of Slimming World Consultants I really want to say a BIG thank you to you and your Advertising Team for being so friendly and helpful as we kick off our Community “Healthier and Slimmer” 2012

Following the brilliant advert you ran for us we have welcomed over 300 new members to our groups and they were inspired when they heard that existing members in group had already lost an amazing 750lbs in just the first week of January !

I will be recommending to all my colleagues that we continue to use your Newspaper for our next weight loss advertising campaign and we look forward to working towards a Healthier and Slimmer community in 2012

Yours sincerely

Laura Rawlings
Slimming World Solihull; Old Edwardians Sports Club

Thank you to the Observer team,

This is just a quick note to thank all the team at the Observer.

Windows Plus has dealt with a mixture of people over the last ten years and has found them all to be not only professional, but also very helpful with advertisement ideas and structures.

We used to use a different local paper, and decided to move to the Observer over 10 years ago as they offer us a better server, and a plan of how we could increase our sales.

Windows Plus has become one of the most recognised window companies and around the Coventry area, and this could not have been achieved without the help of the best local free paper in this area.

I would recommend the Observer to anyone thinking of starting an advertisement campaign in the future.

Thank you again for all your help over the years.

– Gary Hampton, Window Plus

Through listening to our needs and concerns during the first meeting, Terri has been able to provide a level of service helping our company grow through the recession.

Terri has an effervescent personality which brightens any room.

Each communication, be it by phone, e mail or in person always has an objective – thus not wasting your time.

I am also confident that she will follow up on any agreed action points again making my working life easier.

Terri is a true professional.

We at Armour windows would just like to say thank you for your assistance over the last few years with our advertising. We have had a really good response from advertising with the Coventry Observer and our sales have more than trebled. We hope the coming years advertising generates the same interest as it has the previous years and I am sure it will with your help. Thanks again.

Advertising in The Worcester Standard has really helped attract over 25% more customers since October!

– ODEON Worcester

At Barras Home Improvement we appreciate the importance of advertising but also realise the importance of return on investment as in this climate every penny spent on advertising has to be effective. We value the input of Sharon our Advertising Executive, and the constructive assistance she always gives us.

With the Coventry Observer we feel we are advertising in a credible paper that reaches the right demographic for us. The response we get following an advertising campaign is always positive and we feel represents good value for money.

The response can be measured quite some time after a campaign also as we have sometimes had clients visit our showroom following and advertising campaign that has ended weeks before their visit to us! We have been established now for over 20 years and feel very comfortable in recommending the Coventry Observer to other potential advertisers.

– James Spencer, Barras Home Improvement

We have used the Standard newspapers for several years now and have built up a very good working relationships along with a fantastic rapport. You always go the extra mile to ensure you give us the service we require. We are now extremely busy as a result of our recent series of advertisements promoting our new ownership and refurbishment as well as our Sunday lunch offer. The Southcrest Manor will continue to use you for many years to come due to the value for money and excellent personnel service provided.

– Karen King Southcrest Manor Hotel

I would like to thank you once again for your help in promoting our Zumba Classes and Back To School Gym Memberships. Yet again we have had brilliant response from the Redditch & Alcester Standard. We can always rely on you to give us an excellent service, good advice and ideas on helping us to promote awareness for the Greig Centre. We have comfort in knowing our advertising budget is safely spent as an investment with a huge return.

In the short period that we have been in business we have found Julie to be hard working, self-reliant, conscientious and dedicated to both her customers and to her company. We are safe in the knowledge that if we require any alterations to our adverts that Julie is only at the end of a phone. Our relationship with Julie has ensured that we have advertised our business in the most appropriate and productive manner and look forward to continuing our partnership.

C&H Garden services would like to thank you for the first class service we receive with our advertising. There is no need for our company to place ads in any other newspapers as the work keeps rolling in. It doesn’t matter who we speak to, should we call with a query, it is dealt with immediately and your staff could not be more friendly or efficient. In fact, it’s a pleasure to do business with you. I would definitely recommend your publication to anyone. Many thanks from us all.

– Jan Homer, C&H Garden Services Limited

SP Steel Wrought Ironwork has been advertising in The Standard for several years and finds it offers an excellent service and had generated many productive enquiries from our adverts for our handmade gates and railings. You have always given us excellent advice on all our advertising needs, advising us of special features and displays in the paper. We would recommend The Standard and its staff most highly. We have been manufacturing gates and railings for many years and have found the Standard is the best local paper that we have advertised with.

– Phil Gillman, SP Steel

I would like to express my satisfaction with the way I have been looked after as an advertising customer. My initial point of contact has been my representative Lucy, who has dealt with myself in a professional way in all aspects of setting up my adverts as well as my advertorial I had for my first week of advertising with them. Thank you for an excellent service.

– J Macan, JM Motorcycles

As a local agent for Masa International I arrange weekly Spanish property exhibitions, which of course means advertising in local newspapers – always a little worrying for those of us who know nothing about the advertising world. So I was absolutely delighted when I contacted Kelly at the Worcester Standard and found that not only were they interested in my business but took great pleasure in advising me on all aspects of advertising: type of ad, sizes of ad, editions to use to get maximum coverage, she even ensures that I get a copy of the newspaper every time I advertise so that I can see the finished product! Kelly is never too busy to talk – she always returns my calls and it’s thanks to her that I discovered the Standard covers not one but four of my exhibition areas – which is absolutely brilliant as this means I have no worries at all regarding advertising in Worcester, Redditch, Stratford or Coventry. The Standard's motto should be: Advertising Made Easy.

– Kate Thorpe, Masa International

Just wanted to say thank you and also to let you know what a great web page the Leamington Observer really is. I spend 9 months a year away in sunny Iraq, and love to read and 'catch up' with my local home newspaper. In fact i even read it more now than i did before i started working over here! Reading and seeing pic's of 'home' are fantastic and great for keeping the morale up! Keep up the great work

– Jared, Warwick/Basra
