Dear business owner,
The Cuckfield Christmas Shopping Challenge
This is a rather urgent letter, as I have a very limited amount of time to put together an idea which could help promote your business to the village.
What I would like to do is put together a four page feature in the next edition of the magazine. The feature will highlight what a variety of Christmas presents can be bought on the doorstep. We will be challenging the Cuckfield Life readers to buy all their presents from the village!
The feature will be comprised of two elements:
On the centre spread I would like to feature a number of products which are available from Cuckfield shops/businesses. It could be a product or voucher, if that’s more applicable for your business. All businesses are invited to suggest something for the feature. Any suggestion must include a product title, 10 word description, price, and buying category (eg: Perfect gift for… Granny, Man, Teenager, Husband, Child 2-5 yrs, etc). Clearly we will be limited by space, so we can’t guarantee inclusion – however if we do have too much we will endeavour to select the widest variety of products on offer. If time allows I would like to come and photograph each of the products due to be featured so that they are all in the same style. All of this is at no cost to yourself.
Alongside this is the opportunity for you to place a discounted quarter page ad to promote your shop/business. As well as contact details and your popular Christmas lines perhaps, you may also choose to include a discount voucher to encourage the Cuckfield shopper to partake in the challenge. The special price for the quarter page ad is just £40+VAT. There are only 8 spaces available at this price!
We have just put together a similar piece for our sister title Lindfield Life - which went down very well with retailers and the uptake was very encouraging. As I said, time is of the essence for this matter! Product suggestions and any advertisement space will need to be booked BEFORE NEXT FRIDAY 25th OCTOBER.
As a business owner in the village I do hope you can see the benefit of such an article to encourage Cuckfield shoppers away from the Amazon’s of this world and ringing through your till instead. Please call me TODAY on 01444 884115 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your space in the feature.
