WHAT OUR READERS SAY

  • "Douglas Magazine has become our main print advertising vehicle — it’s a highly polished and knowledgeable "must read" magazine within our local small business community. Plus, your sales and design teams are excellent!"

    Douglas Advertiser

  • "I was meaning to write you for quite a while … I liked how the articles evolved from more serious to the lighter side of life — I thoroughly enjoyed the workout article, the article on dancing, and the food article. I must say that was the first time I read about 80% of the featured articles in a single magazine. Bravo."

    YAM reader

  • “Douglas magazine has been the most effective vehicle for getting the word out about my services to Victoria’s business community. The sales team is second to none and the creative department has consistently produced top-quality ads. The Page One Publishing team is constantly checking in with me to brainstorm new ideas and ensure I am fully satisfied with my ad campaign. I would not hesitate in recommending Douglas as a top-quality lead generation tool.”

    DOUGLAS ADVERTISER

  • "The new issue of Douglas landed on my desk this morning and I couldn’t wait to open it. The April/May issue is more beautiful than ever, has fabulous content and an awesome flow from beginning to end. I’m so pleased that we moved our advertising to Page One."
