I have been using Island Life magazine for advertising my local business for nearly 15 years. The magazine supplies me with a constant trickle of new customers and keeps my regular customers informed of new lines, season to season.

I am a small local business and thus my advertising budget is limited. I find that the Islander magazine is affordable and it seems to be well read across the Island, I get several people mention the magazine to me and especially my advertising.
