Frequently Asked Questions

Can I see a sample KEEP ME Card?

Yes, of course.  We have created a sample KEEP ME Card which you can view or download here.

 

Alternatively, please contact us if you would like to receive a physical sample through the post.

Can I only advertise on the KEEP ME Card, or is there online advertising too?

Advertisers are promoted both offline and online in any given area for a 12 month term.

The standard advertising package includes:

> Category-exclusive, full colour advertisement on the KEEP ME Card for that area for 12 months.

> Category-exclusive promotional feature on the WeAreLocal website for 12 months.

> Category-exclusive advertising promotion via the WeAreLocal Facebook page 4 times during the 12 month term. 

There also a range of optional extras for advertisers who want even greater exposure & returns from their local marketing – see details here.

In which local areas is the KEEP ME Card distributed?

We generally cover the Buckinhamshire and Berkshire region at present, with 9 Local Target Areas

Full details of the Distribution areas and schedule can be viewed here.

Which Types of Tradespeople or Service Providers can advertise on the KEEP ME Card?

WeAreLocal specialises in helping trusted, independent tradespeople and service providers to grow their business with residents and small businesses in their local area – and our mission is to encourage people to BUY LOCAL to help bring communities together, which this has never been more important than now.

We also ensure that all the tradespeople we promote via the KEEP ME Card and the WeAreLocal Website and Facebook page meet certain standards – including being genuinely local to the area, with a minimum of 5 years trading, VAT registration and a very good reputation via CheckATrade, TrustATrader or other recognised review platforms.

We currently promote qualifying Tradespeople in the following categories:

Plumbing / Heating

Electrician

Locksmith

Gutter Clearance

Building / Roofing

Drain Unblocking

Glazing / Doors

Gardening / Tree-Cutting

Domestic Appliance Repair

Tech Repair

Pest Control

Emergency Vets

Taxi / Airport Car Service

Mobile Tyre Fitting

We are however open to consider new categories and recently had a request from a local company that specialises in antibacterial/antiviral deep-cleaning of residential properties and business premises, for example.

Can I advertise in more than one area?

Yes.  There is a limit of one advert per category in any given KEEP ME Card area, so we can only promote 1 plumber per area for example.  But there is no limit on the number of areas in which a Tradesperson can advertise.

What size are the KEEP ME Card advertisements?

Each KEEP ME Card carries 12 full colour advertising spots and the dimensions are 130mm width x 28mm height.   

You are welcome to provide camera-ready, HiRes artwork yourself or we can produce the advertisement for you for a small additional charge. Learn More here.

How are KEEP ME Cards distributed?

We use the Royal Mail so each KEEP ME Card is individually hand-delivered through the letterbox by the local postman along with other post.

It is important to stress that the KEEP ME Card is a designed to last and be kept by the recipients, so it is printed to a very high quality on thick card – and it is delivered “solus” (i.e. on its own), not with a bunch of cheap, flimsy leaflets from local pizza delivery places or Indian restaurants!
