Ready to get your content in front of locals?

Let’s get the ball rolling.

It’s always good to support a local company - we get comment from our customers about our ads and we also have great service from our consultant. That is why we continue to advertise in the Nelson Magazine.

We commenced publishing the Summit Weekly in 2004, it was a big decision to change suppliers and yet once we decided to work with the team at the Weekly, we haven’t looked back. The transition was seamless, the service excellent and the results exceeded what we expected. The team at Top South Media is a professional and committed local business and we enjoy doing business with them
