Over the years, we have helped hundreds of local businesses raise their profile and attract new customers. Think of the power of your advertisement in the hands of our homeowners in these areas of Preston and what that could mean for your business.

Every size and type of business has discovered the benefit of keeping print advertising truly local, keeping it targeted, and keeping it within budget for a great return on investment.
Jam Publications advertisers tell us our success is due to our easy-to-read, cost effective link between businesses and homeowners in the Preston area. With a geographically targeted and responsive readership the power of local advertising has been proven: our readers tell us they keep our magazines longer, they trust the local businesses that advertise with us, and they come back again and again.

  • ‘Absolutely delighted with the response to my advert in The PR Pointer, it has by far been the highest return on investment. Fantastic response each month, the target area is perfect with the right customers and no time wasters’. (Anthony)

  • ‘You (JAM Publications) are the only advertising I do; it is value for money and it certainly works! I can always tell when it has been delivered as the enquiries start to come in’.  (Steve – SG Joinery)

  • Thank you so much for always providing me with such a fantastic service. I have used your company for years back to when I was flowers by the honeybees. Changing my business name to By Paris made me wonder if I would lose business but every time the magazine goes out I am inundated with enquiries. I am very grateful for advice, you make it so easy designing my adverts for me and keeping me informed.  Thank you very much, Paris

    By Paris

  • “I will be retiring on the 31st July this year and so will need to cancel my advert at the end of May.
    Thank you for all the great service I have had from Jam Publications over all the years.
    I started advertising when the publication started too many years ago to remember and have received a huge number of jobs through it. The average customer likes ‘local’, it makes them feel more comfortable when requesting a service.

    In a way its a little sad to be parting company but I am looking forward to my retirement.”

    We wish Stuart all the very best for a long & happy retirement!

  • The Guide is still the most reliable free monthly magazine, as we get it every month without fail whereas other free mags arrive some months and not others! Keep up the good work and best wishes. Kind Regards John”

  • Go Cruise and the Lancashire Cruise club have advertised in Maria and John’s Local Guides for many years now and we have been delighted by the response that we have had. The publications provide us with a low cost way to advertise our business and enable us to refresh our image each month. We like to take advantage of this way to promote the Lancashire Cruise Club as we can get straight to the heart of the local community which is our target market and our information stays available for the entire month. The publications are of a high quality and the service provided by Maria is always very professional.

  • Without fail, every time we place an advert for a University of Central Lancashire event in the Community Directory we get a noticeable increase in phone calls from people wanting to book tickets. Engaging with the local community is important to the University and we find Jam Publications to be a useful tool for helping us achieve this. Tania Callagher, University of Central Lancashire


  • I have advertised in the Guides since they started. I rate the guides highly, as they provide a very useful service to me in reaching out to a lot of potential customers, many of whom I know use the guide as the main source for the services they require. I get a good response from my adverts in the Guides and am very happy to recommend the Guides to other potential advertisers.
