The Business Directory Ranking Process

  • We have 3 Listing Types - (Lifetime, Premium and Free ). Our Directory system automatically ranks listings first by Membership Type....
  • To find out about Membership Types see our business advertising options.
  • All Listings are then prioritised using a 'Ratings & Review Score'.  We believe Star Ratings and Reviews from customers or suppliers fairly measure the trustworthiness and dependability of a company.
  • Listings with Reviews are automatically listed above listings with No Reviews.
  • In other words, businesses with Reviews are shown at the top of the page (within their Business Category and within their Membership Type) and thus enjoy the highest Click Through Rates from visitors to the Directory
  • If two listings (in the same Category) have an Identical Rating Score, the business listing with the Most Reviews will rank higher than the Business with fewer reviews.
  • Other companies with No Reviews are then ordered by 'Most Recently Submitted' to the Directory.
  • The owners of these newly listed organisations may not have had a chance to ask their customers or suppliers to post a positive review yet.
  • In summary, the Overall Star Rating Score for each rated Business is calculated using a combination of the Total Number of Reviews combined with the Average Numeric Score of all Rated Reviews for that listing.

Overview of the Magazine Industry

A magazine is a form of publication that is produced on a regular basis and can be bought in ‘printed paper’ form from newsagents or other such outlets. Equally, an e-magazine can be accessed online and/or downloaded to read.

The traditional method of magazine circulation has definitely been affected by digital media – it has had a huge effect upon advertising and magazine circulation. Although most people prefer flicking through a glossy magazine or periodical, there are many consumers who choose to read online magazines and publications; preferring the fact that they can be instantly accessed at the touch of a button. Because of this, many print publication companies have been forced to compete and had to revise their pricing strategies in order to remain in business.

The entire media industry, whether it be printing, advertising, marketing or editorial has been affected, and companies or individuals who work as illustrators, writers or copywriters for print magazines have found themselves having to lower their prices.

Magazines either contain general information or specialist information about a favourite hobby or particular interest. They may be celebrity-focused, in which case they will have collated the most recent headlining celebrity news. These include photographs of A-list celebrities at the red carpet events or perhaps ‘papped’ stumbling out of a taxi and looking slightly worse for wear.

Special interest magazines are topic-specific and will be filled with all types of information regarding the subject. Many people choose to subscribe to their favourite periodical and can request that it is reserved for them at their local newsagents or if they prefer, have it posted to an address of their choice.

Magazine companies usually promote special incentive offers in a bid to entice people to subscribe to their Paid Circulation magazine. This can range from receiving a regular copy of their publication at a hugely discounted price if paying for a year’s subscription in advance, to anything from a luxury gift or money off a particular product.

Many magazines rely on selling advertising space to help finance their publication, and whilst it may annoy many consumers who buy a costly ‘glossy’ magazine only to find that the first 20 or so pages are just advertisements. The majority accept that this is essential to both the livelihood and success of the magazine.

There are also publications that fall under the category of Non-Paid Circulation, meaning there is no cover price, and they are free to be taken. These types of magazines are usually found in street dispensers, on trains, reception areas and on airlines as a type of in-flight magazine.

Women’s general interest magazines completely dominate the market as there is a huge demand for celebrity-based and gossip magazines. Market research has consistently shown that there is a huge call for publications that are filled with tips and information about losing weight, keeping fit as well as articles about healthy eating, interesting recipes, problem pages and consumer facts.

Specific interest magazines such as Golfing Weekly which cater for both men and women still tend to gear sports-orientated magazines towards men as this is their primary target audience.
