About Local-Ad

Local-Ad Ltd has been advertising Local business since 1985.  First of all we started out distributing a small photocopied 4 page-leaflet but this has now developed into a professionally printed booklet that is far-reaching and door-to-door delivered with a large team of distribution staff putting our books into shops and through front doors across Essex.

Because we are a local business we know our environment which has helped us to advertise tradesmen and find them work. Lots of our existing Customers have been with us for many years, proving that we can provide a cheap and successful advertising option.

We currently provide magazines for 5 areas, Maldon & Heyridge, Burnham & Villages, Chelmsford & District, Tiptree & Villages and Witham & District.

Not only do we provide magazine advertisement we also operate an Online Business Directory with the ability to leave feedback on a business thus providing a safer community for everyone. We can help eliminate unwanted and poor quality tradespeople.

Five Summer Garden Tips

As we approach the hottest part of the year, we are giving you five Summer Garden Tips to help make a better place to put the BBQ.

  1. Regular cutting of the lawn is better off for your garden in the summer, do it little and often to thicken the grass and to help keep it healthy. Keep the grass a little longer in mid-summer when temperatures are at their hottest.
  2. Annual flowers are the easiest plants to grow. Within 3 months of sowing, an annual will be in full bloom. Once they have flowered, dead-head them regularly which will spur the plant on to produce more flowers in a attempt to produce more seed.
  3. Used coffee grounds, or egg shells are a great way to stop slugs and snails eating your seedlings. Make sure replenish them when it rains!
  4. If you’re using a terracotta pot, it’s a smart idea to line it with plastic or an empty compost bag with holes punched in the bottom before planting as these types of pots absorb water.
  5. Attracting birds to your garden will help to keep insect pests down. During summer many people forget the birds because they think there’s enough food around for them. If the ground hardens due to prolonged hot weather then birds will actually find it difficult to find food so if you supply some bird feed it will help them.

We hope this helps but if you need to a reliable, local professional to make your garden a nicer place to be in then look in our business directory for a Gardener 🙂

Professional Mobile-Friendly Web Design Service offer for February 2016

Manage your website from your smart phone.

We design our websites as entire content management systems. This gives you the power to change the content of your site, add pictures, news, blogs and generally keep everyone informed of what you do.

A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool that allows every day computer users to manage webpage and other web based content. A typical CMS enables website administrators to perform basic web authoring tasks such as formatting text, creating hyperlinks, and inserting images on web pages. In addition, CMS’s usually offer modules or components to manage specific content types such as news, events, job opportunities, photo galleries, etc.

All our sites are designed to respond to whatever device you are using to view it. So if you are looking on your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop the website will automatically resize to fit the view point while still looking great.

Website Price

Our standard price is £785 + VAT.

We also do a payment scheme so you can pay monthly so you can spread the cost over the first year. This consists of an initial £200 + VAT up front payment, then 11 x £60 + VAT payments.

Additional costs

After the first year there will be an annual charge of £50 + VAT per year for hosting renewal.

You will have to renew your domain name every 2 years. The prices are:

  • .co.uk = £6.95 + VAT for 2 years
