Plymouth Magazine Testimonials

We like your publications, they really help.  Our website goes ballistic when the Plymouth Magazine goes out.  It brings us in some very good clients. - Rob Duncan, Armada Civil Engineering
Everyone at Cornerstone should be proud of how they respond to the needs of individual company/organisations at a moment’s notice. I am really impressed with the service I have received, given the challenge I set you all! - Kim Muller, Learner Services Manager, On Course South West
Totem is extremely impressed by the friendly and professional manner that Cornerstone Vision offer and is very pleased with the resulting business directly attributable to advertising with them. - Alan Roberts, Totem Timber
The Plymouth Magazine advertising has been very successful for us, we have often found that the new business we receive from our advertisements has not only covered the cost of the advert but has increased our profile beyond our expectation. - Marjon Sport
Since opening our Skechers Concept Store in March we have worked with the Plymouth Magazine to great effect. They really have helped us get Skechers Plymouth on the map. Thank you. - Simon H., Skechers UK
I had hoped for and expected one booking or valuable enquiry a month from the Plymouth Magazine advert to make it worthwhile and pay for itself. I have been blown away by the response as I have actually had at least one booking or valuable enquiry every week directly from the magazine. - John Pope, Armada Kitchens
We booked a quarter page back in the November edition of the Plymouth Magazine. The response was excellent and we were really pleased. Lockdales travel all over the country doing valuation days very similar to the ‘Antiques Roadshow’. We had the last valuation day in the Duke of Cornwall hotel and many turned up as a result of seeing the Plymouth Magazine. We are down in Saltash in April for another valuation day so are looking to book with you again.- Tracey Maugé, Lockdales Coins Ltd
We have been using the Plymouth magazine now for about 2 years, we have found it by far the best form of advertising in Plymouth. I would say 80-90% of our clients in Plymouth come from the Plymouth Magazine. Definitely worth advertising in and great customer service. - Claire Robinson, Extra Help
Over the years, the Plymouth Magazine has become the most effective advertising medium that Peter Goord Travel uses in the Plymouth area. It gives us good responses in the form of customers who book with us repeatedly, and it has definitely increased awareness of our company. - Anthony Goord, Peter Goord Travel
Since advertising with the Plymouth Magazine we have had a truly impressive response to our ads. The professional approach of all the team backed by their genuine interest in our success means I would not hesitate in recommending the Plymouth Magazine as marketing money well spent. - Andrew Scowcroft, Foot Solutions

 

Plymouth Shopper Testimonials

Everyone at Cornerstone should be proud of how they respond to the needs of individual company/organisations at a moment’s notice. I am really impressed with the service I have received, given the challenge I set you all! - Kim Muller, Learner Services Manager, On Course South West
Totem is extremely impressed by the friendly and professional manner that Cornerstone Vision offer and is very pleased with the resulting business directly attributable to advertising with them. - Alan Roberts, Totem Timber
Your publication is clearly offering a much needed publicity outlet for member run groups such as ours. - Sandra Exley, committee member of Plymouth Inter Varsity Club (Plymouth IVC)
Cornerstone Vision have been a fantastic support to Devon and Cornwall Food Association over the past 18 months, through their free local paper the Plymouth Shopper, which is where a lot of our volunteers find out about DCFA and come and join us.  As well as this, through interviews on Cross Rhythms 96.3FM members of the community who didn't know about the work done, are made fully aware.  They are friendly and reliable and provide an amazing service to DCFA and other charities. - Charlie A. TAYLOR - The Devon & Cornwall Food Association (DCFA)
Fort Stamford has used the Shopper for many years and we're very pleased with the results. Lots of people come in with the vouchers from the Shopper, and it is one of our most effective forms of advertising, especially as the Plymstock edition is very local to us and reaches local people cost effectively. We will definitely continue to advertise with the Shopper for years to come. - Royston Sumner - Fort Stamford 
Plympton Kingfisher has been using the Shopper for local advertising for many years. The response has always been excellent. We have tried other advertising publications, but Cornerstone and the ‘Shopper’ by far exceed any response for similar advertisements in other publications. Thank you Cornerstone – great job! - Craig Maw, Kingfisher Fish & Chips

 

Leaflet Distribution Testimonials

Everyone at Cornerstone should be proud of how they respond to the needs of individual company/organisations at a moment’s notice. I am really impressed with the service I have received, given the challenge I set you all! - Kim Muller, Learner Services Manager, On Course South West
We've had a very good response already from the leaflet drop already. We had two enquiries from the Crownhill area, one from Southway and one from Roborough - that's just so far today! - John Swaffield, Dainton Self Storage
We have used Cornerstone Vision to distribute our quarterly promotional leaflets for the last few years and found it very effective. Previously we used a national Door to Door distribution company but have found Cornerstone Vision to be more cost effective and just as reliable. - Liz Lawson - Managing Director, Lawsons
Over the last 25 years, Cornerstone has been consistent in delivering my leaflets reliably and generating leads for me. I would say it is the honesty and reliability of the company that makes Cornerstone’s leaflet distribution service work so well for me. The staff are helpful and friendly, and manage my leaflet distribution professionally. - John Morrish - Principal, Professionals School of Motoring

Long may it continue. - Barbara Eadon, Media Buyer, DM Focus Ltd - Direct Marketing Agency
Gilead Foundations Charity has used Cornerstone's Diocesan newspapers a number of times over the last few years, to raise funds and awareness.  The team at Cornerstone Vision has handled our advertorial page design, including copy-writing, professionally and with an understanding of our aims and the 'DNA' of our organisation.  The results have been encouraging, with thousands of pounds raised as well as the 'story' of our ministry being presented effectively to tens of thousands of people who may never have heard of our residential rehabilitation work. - Lois Samuel, Marketing Manager, Gilead Foundations Charity

Kingdom Bank had an advertorial feature in several Diocesan publications and the response was good. We had a large increase in enquiries, requests for our information and new accounts opened. This did not just last for the time span of the publication but over the next two years. It was worth our while for the new business and brand recognition we gained. - Mary Buckley, Business Development Executive, Kingdom Bank
Thank you very much for all your effort on the recent adverts and the features. They looked fantastic. Thanks also for the effort by the team in calling the various exhibitors and promoting the features to make such good spreads in the papers. - Bill Allen, Marketing Manager, Christian Resources Exhibitions
