Would you like to advertise in The Collector’s Companion? Here’s some information to get you started.
DEADLINES: The advertising deadlines are as follows.
Winter issue (December to March) – end of October
Spring issue (March to June) – end of January
Summer issue (June to September) – end of April
Autumn issue (September to December) – end of July
CIRCULATION: We distribute 80,000 print copies every year. That’s 20,000 copies every quarter to shops, emporiums, fairs and auctions. We have thousands more “copies” viewed online and subscribers who receive every issue through their letterbox.
ETHOS: We genuinely care that our magazine works for our advertisers. Otherwise, what’s the point? We include relevant editorial to help ensure people read the magazine and give careful consideration to our layout and the way we present information to make our magazine incredibly useable and give people a reason to keep the magazine.
AREA: We’re aiming at readers living in London and the Home Counties and a little way beyond that. We have advertisers from Hungerford to Essex to Northampton and everywhere in between. We also advertise national fairs. We’ll accept adverts for any location, but we mention this as we think our usability and interest to readers comes from our focused area coverage.
A KNOWN AND TRUSTED NAME: We’ve been “on the scene” for 25 years, celebrating with our 100th issue in the spring of 2020. We’ve got advertisers who have been with us since the beginning, and despite the inevitable comings and goings on the High Street over the years we’ve got over 30 who have been with us for more than 10 years.
68% of our advertisers have been with us for more than 5 years!
2-LINE FAIR & AUCTION LISTINGS: Get your fair/auction included in our listings calendar for £5 per entry. The listings are included in the print edition of CC magazine, on our website and weekly via social media. All fair and auction display advertisers will have their dates added into our calendar listings at no extra cost.
