"As a new business, we’re absolutely delighted with the difference EH4 directory has made to our growth over this first year. 


Jan has been fabulous support, helping us make our ads. clearer & offering design advice too. It’s a joy to find someone who understands that we’re not all experts in the beginning & is happy to share her years of experience with her advertisers. 


Thank you so much!"

"I have known Jan on a professional basis for around twelve years.  In that time, I have had an advert in her EH4 magazines.


I have built my business over the years using this form of advertising and the EH4 magazines has been very successful in generating continuous leads.  I find it a very cost effective form of advertising and generally return twenty to thirty times my investment on a monthly basis.


Jan has never let me down and is as fair and honest a person as you could hope to do business with.  I highly recommend both Jan and her EH4 Directory to any and all businesses."

"I have been advertising with the EH4 magazines for some years now and have found it to be an extremely effective marketing tool.

I have always found Jan to be professional and helpful in her approach to running the publication and providing advice and assistance."


Charlotte Cotton

"We have used the EH4 magazines for the last few years to successfully bring awareness of our business to our local community in Edinburgh. Jan is easy to work with and supportive of our business requirements. She ensures that the directory produced is of high quality and reflective of the professional nature of the local business community in the EH4 district. It is the go-to publication for community information! I would encourage anyone with a business interest in the area to contact Jan and see what EH4 can do for you."
