Your message, delivered beautifully, in a quality publication, at a price you can afford.

Each issue of LIVE has a shelf-life of at least eight weeks. Radio ads and social media posts are over in a matter of seconds, while a daily paper is lucky to last 24 hours.

We print a minimum of 13,000 copies of each LIVE issue. Everybody in selected areas of New Plymouth and almost every home in Oakura, receives a copy of LIVE. Compare this to the fractured reach of the daily paper, the many radio stations and digital media platforms.

A full page, full colour advertisement in LIVE costs roughly half the amount of a full page, full colour ad in the daily paper and is vastly more cost-effective than designing, printing and delivering 12,500 flyers.

When you advertise with LIVE we do our best to position your advertisement for maximum effect, by placing it with a story that is likely appeal to your target market.
We also offer Business Profiles – paid editorial about your business, organisation, or event.
