The Month Ahead has been in business for over 25 years! This is what our advertisers are saying about us ...
I would like to share my true story with those who are looking for great rate of return for their hard earned money when they want to spend on marketing.
We are a dental professional group who opened our second location here in Newmarket community and like any other new business founder, we were doubtful to choose the right channel for advertising. When I picked up The Month Ahead magazine from our mailbox, I liked the art work and layout. I spoke to Hazel and got some stat numbers from her which you can get from any publisher or distributor these days, however, it only took us one week to realize how true those numbers were.
We are so pleased with the results of the advertising in this magazine and we will continue to do so in the future.
Throughout the design, publish and distribution of our ad, we felt we are dealing with a group of professionals who are very patinate about what they do and they treated us like a client who they know for many years.
If you are a local business owner who wants to be heard I strongly recommend to try The Month Ahead in their earliest possible edition, You won't regret.

The quality of service and advertisements are second to none. I would recommend The Month Ahead advertising to any business owner looking to start a business or an established business that needs more customers. Thanks Hazel and The Month Ahead!"

The Month Ahead has proven invaluable at providing us with qualified prospects to our brand new building. Many clients will simply say they ‘read about us’ or ‘saw something somewhere’. The clients that read The Month Ahead specifically refer to the “great article I read about you in The Month Ahead” or have commented on “Seeing us on the cover of The Month Ahead”.
Working with Hazel is a pleasure and we will continue to include The Month Ahead in our overall advertising plan.
