"Regular advertising in Konect magazine has been very good for growing our company's exposure locally and is an important part of our ongoing marketing plan. The team at Konect are very knowledgeable and provide exceptional service and support to our business."




I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. Let your users get to know you.

We distribute 53,500 copies of Konect door to door every month, the largest circulation of any magazine in the Lothians, as well as 7500 bi-monthly in Falkirk.

With eight different editions, you can pick and mix and cover just selected areas, or the whole area.  See distribution areas here.

We can provide advice on the content of your advertisement. We will discuss your advertising requirements with you, and agree with you the best campaign for your business. Many of the businesses in the Konect are "first-time advertisers." 


We make advertising as easy as possible.

If you do business in the Lothians or Falkirk, Konect should be your first port of call. You're also directly helping us deliver our social mission in the local area.

How much does it cost?

Advertising starts at just £22 + vat per month in the Calders or Colinton editions so it really is affordable for every business. 

The rates vary depending on the size of advertisement, how long you want to be in for and whether you want a premium page, so please contact us for a full advertising guide and to discuss your requirements.

A text listing for businesses in the clubs and classes section is:

£7 + vat per month for the Calders and Colinton (The Dell Directory) editions

£10 + vat per month for the Linlithgow, Balerno, Broxburn & Falkirk editions

£12 + vat per month for the Livingston and Bathgate editions

Do I have to provide my own artwork?

You can provide your own artwork if you want, please see our dimensions and format details here.

If you don't have design software and skills we strongly recommend you get your artwork designed professionally, either via your own design contacts, or our designer can do it for you. We'll discuss your requirements, design the advertisement and send you a proof for approval before it goes to print. There is a small fee for this.

Can you print an article on my business?

At the editor’s discretion some space may be available for business-specific articles as part of your advertising package. A fee is payable.
