Does advertising with Dockside Magazine work?
Just see what our many clients are saying
“Thirty different customers mentioned the article and 14 wakesurf boards sold from the article in the first three weeks. Definitely the best results we have had from advertising any water sports.”
Indian River Trading Company
“As well as generating repeat business, Dockside’s exposure brought us new customers, and our name is gaining recognition. The response has been exciting for us, and the magazine’s authentic approach suits our style very well.”
Thomas James Cabinetry
“Over the past two years my business has more than doubled as a direct result of working with Dockside. Out of all the other advertising I do Dockside has definitely produced the best results, and it’s a publication I wouldn’t miss being a part of.”
Chestnut Park Realty
“For every dollar spent with Dockside/Business we had over $5.00 of direct revenue. When the magazine comes out, the phone calls and emails don't stop. I thought print advertising was dead... I was wrong. Dockside works wonders.”
“People come in every day mentioning that they saw us in Dockside. It’s definitely working!”
ADAM & NICOLE PEDERSON
Eleven North Marine
“We have had very positive feedback and comments from both contractors and cottagers. As we travel to our many properties all around Lake Joseph, Rosseau and Muskoka we know cottagers are enjoying the read with their morning coffee. We are looking forward to participating in the next issue!”
“The in depth article Dockside Magazine wrote for us was an excellent way to educate the public about Lumberock synthetic lumber. Our brand is gaining recognition and the interest generated during the
first week of circulation far exceeded our expectations.”
Lumberock / Baycrest Distribution
“Dockside has garnered more positive responses than any other print media I have ever used (and I have used a lot over the years)”
David's Muskoka Audio Video
“We received seven calls within the first few weeks from people who said they saw us in Dockside and within a short period of time, the ad has already paid for itself. We're very pleased with the results!"
CHRIS & IRENE WHATLEY
“Both myself and my clients have had amazing responses to our editorial ads in Dockside Business. I cannot stress enough how valuable this magazine is for business to business relationships. The quality of the magazine, the uber fabulous photography and amazing journalism are what allows for such a high end product.”
The Well Known Company
“We found there was a great rise in our late season business from Lakeside. Our article educated readers and brought in people who were already interested in our products and our business. It makes my job a lot easier when customers come through the door recognizing my face and our merchandise and buy based on that!”
PETER DE MOS
Liv Outside Muskoka
“We have had a lot of responses from being seen in Dockside. People have called us and let us know that they have seen our ad, and I’ve even been recognized in public by people who read Dockside. I think that the ad has also brought us awareness in areas in Muskoka that we don’t usually get a lot of calls.”
Muskoka Pest Control
“Best response we have ever had from any advertising.”
Muskoka Teak Outdoor Furniture
”Our experience with Dockside has been great. Andrew (our writer) was very interested and knowledgable on what we do, so we didn’t have to teach him anything. He was easy to talk to and he truly captured what we wanted in the article. I think it turned out really well.”
TIM & SHARON BUTSON
Tim Butson Boat Builder
“We are very pleased with our experience with Dockside. Even though the summer was our busiest time and we were working under tight time constraints, Dockside’s team worked quickly and efficiently with us to get the photography, writing and design done.”
Modern Home Carpet One
“I like working with Dockside because they are a local company that understands how to capture the true essence of Muskoka in their publication. A lot of other magazines don’t have the same personal face-to-face interaction that you get with Dockside, and the entire staff was easy to work with.”
Innovative Docking Systems
“Lakeside magazine is a quality publication and we are pleased to be a part of it. The lake distribution has helped us reach a large and ideal audience and we are pleased with the response to our ad.”
“I have tried many different forms of advertising to help promote my products and build my business. However, nothing has produced the same positive feedback as Dockside Magazine. The unique format
and distribution have created real results in sales, and it’s working wonders for us!”
Cottage Lifts Enterprises
“We don’t normally do a lot of advertising because often we don’t get a return. But we found Lakeside to be different. Because it is a coffee table publication our business is front of mind for six to seven months, or more. Readers can pick up Lakeside and find all of the businesses they need for their cottages or homes, and they have all the information they need at their fingertips.”
Windermere Garden Centre
“The staff at Dockside catered to my needs, and made sure my article featured my business in the best way possible. Our advertisement not only sparked a great response from my current clients, but also helped gain some new business as well. Lakeside magazine did not disappoint!”
PattyMac Services Inc.
“Six confirmed jobs in the first two weeks from the article. I had to buy a new power washer to keep up with the work.”
Global Green Mobile Wash
"The response from Dockside was immediate, and we are told many times daily that people have come to our store because they were intrigued and entertained by our article. We'd like to give our experience with Dockside a resounding thumbs up!"
TIM WEBB & DAVE CAMPBELL
Gypsy Market Mews Eclectiques
”We received several calls from Lagoon City within first week of distribution. One of these calls has already resulted in the sale of a garage door; another quote has been given for another. To have this many qualified customers calling within the first week is unheard of.
This is the best form of advertising I have ever seen.”
The Garage Door Store
“We are definitely pleased with the results from the advertising we’ve done with Dockside Publishing. When we first started advertising, I was overwhelmed by the results. The writing and photos are fantastic. When I go to job sites, people are always telling me about how they saw my ad and what they think of it.”
Muskoka Aluminum & Vinyl
“We have been really impressed with the response that we’ve received from our Dockside advertising.
The articles have generated a great deal of interest and resulted in several installations. We’ll definitely be advertising in Dockside again
