This Media company published a free to pick up English speaking newspaper on the Costa del sol for five years and around a year ago changed the format from a weekly newspaper to a monthly magazine.
The Magazine has proved successful and is funded entirely by advertising. There are many regular advertisers that commit to regular advertising month after month as well as attracting new advertisers all the time.
It covers a large area of the Costa Del Sol between Torremolinos and Sabinillas and inland in areas such as Alhaurin, Coin and Alora A husband and wife team currently run the magazine, with one party designing and producing the magazine and the other dealing with distribution and all client liaison. It is run from home and could be run from anywhere.
Whilst most of the content which includes community news, puzzles and quizzes is produced in house, some of the advertisers contribute towards articles and editorials.
In addition to the above, there are opportunities to provide clients with graphic design and printing. It would also be possible to resurrect the original newspaper and have the paper, which would compliment the running of the magazine.
The sale of the business, includes the limited company (SL) the website, facebook and twitter pages. A full handover period with training and introductions to all existing clients and suppliers will also be supplied.
This is a really social business, which can be run form home, and although some experience of graphic design would be ideal it is not essential.
