Back in 2005 I was sat in a local pub flicking through the village monthly magazine.
As usual I was complaining to anyone who’d listen how poor its quality was. The articles were boring, the photos blurred, the advertisements poorly designed.
One friend sitting near me must have heard this rant once too often as he simply told me: “Shut up moaning about it and if you are that bothered set up your own bloody magazine!”
I owe that friend a pint really. Because thanks to him I set up the My News network and the wheels were set in motion on an 11-year journey which continues to gather momentum to this day.
I took my idea of publishing monthly magazines and ran with it, fast. What started off as a hobby has turned into a business turning over more than £1.25m a year, publishing 15 monthly titles with more on the way, a readership in excess of 250,000 and hundreds of delighted advertisers.
During the past 11 years since that fateful bar room banter I’ve built up a fantastic team of magazine publishing and sales experts. The skill, hard work and knowledge of our team has been the key to our success.
...the system which allows you to generate a meaningful income from the advertising revenues in your magazine.
And now I’m sharing everything I know, with the VISION franchise opportunity.
VISION allows you to publish your very own magazine within your local area, with advice, support and help every step of the way. And the best bit? You concentrate on the selling, with the content professionally written and designed for you.
You see, over the last 11 years, we’ve worked hard to create a system that works and delivers meaningful results; and that’s exactly what we share with our franchisees – the system which allows you to generate a meaningful income from the advertising revenues in your magazine.
We work closely with all our franchisees to help them to a better work/life balance, less stress and a more fulfilling life, and we love every second of it.
