Business Time in Essex, the printed magazine

BusinessTime in Essex in a nutshell

  • The magazine is published four times a year on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1.
  • 8,000 free copies are mailed to named senior directors of Essex businesses including every member of Essex Chambers of Commerce. With ‘pass-on’ numbers added, we conservatively estimate the readership at 15,000 every issue.
  • To this readership can be added the thousands who read the magazine online.
  • The magazine is editorially-led, addressing a wide range of everyday issues affecting Essex business people. Advertisers are always offered editorial opportunities.
  • We don’t employ a sales team. You’ll be dealing with the Editor, Peter Richardson, who is as passionate about the magazine as you are about your own business.
  • The magazine offers businesses an unrivalled opportunity to target new business by putting themselves in front of a receptive readership of key decision-makers with a powerful combination of editorial and advertising.
