Coffee News is the best...

Coffee News has been an amazing way to advertise my business.
I have worked with Jim Edmonds for over six years.
Often I observe the public picking up a copy, with such feed back
as - how catchy my heading is, seeing it over and over again.
Coffee News worked for me, repetition pays off.

From a business perspective this is the ultimate place to promote my business with outstanding publications aimed at wide range of audiences, with a unique approach to advertising by way of one business category per publication. This keeps out my competitors.

As a Business Development Consultant in Manitoba Canada I use to recommend the Coffee News as a good place to advertise and always heard of amazing results.

I have started my own business's both in Canada & New Zealand advertising in the Coffee News, as well as advertising in a number of different other publications...

The Coffee News RANKS NUMBER 1 generating all advertising responses.... Better use of my marketing dollar.

The Coffee News is a great read for a coffee break.

If you're not in the Coffee News, then act now.

Leanne Neufield - TakingKare Of Business

Thanks so much for the eyecatching ad you have made us. Already we have made sales to people we otherwise would not have been able to reach. Your newsletter seems to be everywhere and offers us great value for money.

Just Motor Cycles - New Brighton, Christchurch

At the end of last year I decided to set myself up as a building contractor specialising in alterations, fences, decks etc. The very first advert I placed with Coffee News came out between Xmas and New Year and got an immediate response.

The job that I got from that Coffee News advert will keep me in work for some time.

Thanks very much Coffee News for helping me launch my building business so successfully.

Brenton Partridge - Papakura

I recently started my new upholstery business in the suburbs of Hamilton.

When I saw Coffee News I thought that this is a fun way to advertise.

I have had lots of great comments and work to keep me going.

Thanks Coffee News, great work.

Collette Brooks - Affordable Upholstery

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those at Coffee News who have run our advertisement for volunteers and to say that it has been my most successful means of advertising this year. I run ads on radio stations and in local papers, but the largest proportion of new volunteers has been in response to the ads in Coffee News.

Sue Botting - Communicare-CMA (Auckland)

Just wanted to let you know that the Weird and Wacky Art Exhibition is underway and is being very well received. Thanks for your input and support. I have had quite a few people comment that they saw the ad in Coffee News. Money well spent. Thanks.

Gail Drake

Feedback has been incredible.

My sales have lifted substantially.

People have mentioned Coffee News time and time again.

Ron Kay - Discount Apparel (Papakura)

We at T&K Home Services use Coffee News for our advertising and have found it to be great for us as we are a small business. It has helped us with getting new clients in the Kaiapoi, Redwood, Brighton areas which has been great for us.

I highly recommend Coffee News to any small business who wants value for money and great service, great ads.

We will continue to use Coffee News for our main advertising now and in the future.

Kevin Mangos - T&K Home Services

We have noticed a significant increase in the number of private jobs in the Remuera area since advertising in the Remuera/Ellerslie edition of Coffee News.

Normally we do more insurance work in that area, but the private jobs have increased by several a week just lately!

We're booking another block of advertising with Coffee News.

Wendy - Aquacare Carper and Upholstery (Remuera)

On behalf of the team at Lifeline I would like to thank you for inserting an advertisement for Lifeline calling for volunteers. This advertisement was placed in many of your publications over a couple of months.

The result was fabulous. We received a great number of inquiries from the advertisement and many of those followed through and are starting in the intake this weekend.

We are truly delighted and acknowledge that your support has played an important role in advising people of the opportunity to become a Lifeline volunteer and therefore helping us to help the community.

Thank you again for your support.

Maryclaire Buddle-Harris Funding & Development Manager - Lifeline

I am delighted with my ad in the Coffee News free weekly paper. I am a ladies clothing store in Dargaville and it has increased sales in my shop by about 10%.

I would like to thank Lyn and Mark for giving me the opportunity to do business in their paper.

Many thanks

Molly - Molly's Fashions

We want to let you know that we are thrilled with the response we have had from advertising in the Hamilton Edition of Coffee News. It has been the MOST SUCCESSFUL advertising we have done to date and exactly reaches the type of people we want to know about Soul Essentials. It is also one of the most cost effective advertising options as well. Thank you.

Caroline - Soul Essentials

.... In short, I'm pleased to say that Coffee News is an important media choice for me to maintain and build my profile in the community - in my opinion this is a media that works!! Congratulations on a job well done!!

Lewis McKirdy - Ray White Northwood, Christchurch

We are writing to thank you so much for the awesome job you are doing with our Coffee News ads.

Since our Swim School started advertising in December 2004 we have been taking at least 2 bookings or more per day, directly in response to our ad with you.

We are extremely pleased with the prompt and efficient way in which our ads were produced and obviously thrilled with the results. Thanks for the wonderful service you are providing, and for the great way you accommodate our business.

With kind regards

Karla McCaughan and Jessie Sinel
Little Dippers Swim School

I am writing on behalf of Counties Playcentre Association to thank you for your support of Playcentre through advertising in Coffee News. We have had a lot of positive feedback regarding the advertisement which is great!

Linley Still, Public Relations Convenor

I went to rehearsal last night for Stepping Out and was immediately congratulated by our President on the ad in the Coffee News. He was delighted - reckons it looks terrific! So I just wanted to let you know and say thank you.

Barb Hiett Papakura Theatre Co Ltd

Just to let you know that the response from the Coffee News for pony parties has been SO SUCCESSFUL that we are booked out until mid-December. We simply cannot squeeze another party in any which way!

And we would like to extend an invitation to you again to pop in if you are ever down in Whangarei and are at a loose end. Perhaps we could get you up on a horse or just come in for a coffee (instant only, I'm afraid).

Kerry Robson
Whangarei Riding Therapy Centre

We started advertising The Business Centre at the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce in Coffee News about six months ago and we've been really pleased with the level of enquiry we have received. Coffee News has definitely worked for us and as a result we will go on to support this publication.

Helen Cunliffe, The Business Centre

When Coffee News first started in Tauranga we chose to advertise in it as it looked like a good advertising option for a small business such as ours. We have been rapt with the results we have achieved and we will continue supporting this local publication. Dan has done a fantastic job with the Coffee News and it is a pleasure doing business with him.

David & Julie Mischewski
The Car Clinic

The number of people who get into the shuttle with copies of the Coffee News in their hand or a cutout of our ad, is amazing.

It's working really well for us and we are delighted that no other shuttle companies can advertise in our edition.

Eastern Connection Shuttle

I am just writing to thank you for placing our advertisement for Balmoral Day Centre in the Coffee News recently. We have had such a good response that we now have a full complement of volunteers and will no longer need you to continue advertising for Balmoral.

Once again many thanks for all that Coffee News has done for us. It still remains our best source of advertising to date and I am always spreading the word to anyone who may be interested in advertising with you.

Sue Botting, Coordinator of Volunteers Communicare Day Centres

We are delighted with the response to our ad in Coffee News and can't thank you enough. It is really paying off for us - we get a huge number of calls and judging from the number of people coming in with a Coffee News, it must be good for the cafes as well.

Thanks heaps

Beryl, Clevedon Markets

Thanks for the new advert layout. It's Great!! Congratulations for the great job you all do, and it's always a pleasure to do business with you.

Melody Taylor Fitness Unlimited

Since my advertisement first appeared in July 2002, I have been very pleasantly surprised at the number of phone inquiries it has generated. Thank you.
