The Best Way To Attract Local Customers

The Local Answer publications are the most effective way to attract local customers with a combined distribution of over 45,000 copies delivered monthly to households in Redcar, Marske, New Marske, Guisborough, Saltburn, Loftus, East Cleveland, Eaglescliffe, Ingleby Barwick and surrounding villages.

The Local Answer has a long shelf life. It is a convenient, retainable directory which can sit unobtrusively next to the telephone or in a handy drawer.

We currently distribute a trio of publications into three separate local areas. For more information please visit our Areas We Cover Section.


“Our advertising works… We know because our customers tell us!”

“We are extremely happy with the quality of the advert for our flooring studio. It’s made our business stand out from the rest and from start to finish it has been simple. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend advertising with The Local Answer as it gets results, thanks to all the team.”  Martin – New Marske Flooring Studio.


How often do you need a service or commodity that you simply can’t find locally?

You know there must be an outlet in your area, yet finding one that fully satisfies your needs is often a real problem. But now help is very much at hand. ‘The Local Answer’ was devised and designed as a no-nonsense parochial forum to provide the answer to those questions.

Neatly packaged in a convenient, fact-filled booklet, it has become an invaluable source of reference to the people of Redcar, Marske, Saltburn, Guisborough and East Cleveland, Eaglescliffe, Ingleby Barwick and surrounding areas.

Just as importantly, it is a cost-effective and reliable advertising medium for many local businesses. It has already been proved beyond doubt that its convenient A5 size and monthly format makes it easy to keep – either in a drawer or by the telephone – where its alphabetical index of services is always at hand and easy to use.

So, unlike newspapers or other directories it has a very long shelf life and response to advertisements continues long after other media have been thrown away. And since all the services listed are purely local, and no category is over-subscribed with a plethora of large national advertisers, it is a much fairer outlet for the smaller business whose aim is to develop trusting, long-term relationships with clients.

The Local Answer is published by Media Solutions (North East) Ltd, a local publishing company based in Redcar.

With over 45,000 door drops, advertising is at a fraction of the cost compared to mail shots or other media, it is genuinely the local answer for local people!
