Norwich BID

Over the past year we have worked with Nicky at Vanilla to advertise our events and the Discover Norwich app. Nicky is great to work with, she is both friendly and professional in approach, and really got to know our company so she could effectively suggest the right editions for us to advertise in. Always enthusiastic and helpful, Nicky has also helped us secure editorial along with a special profile on our Executive Director.  We feel Vanilla gives us great value for money, allowing us to reach our core target audience.

We’ve been advertising with Vanilla for a while now and will continue to do so. It’s the only magazine that we consistently have customers refer to when visiting the store. Everyone we’ve dealt with at Vanilla has been very lovely, supportive, helpful and patient – we are terrible for sending everything last minute!

Jarrold have found Vanilla magazine to be very supportive. The team that we work with there including the editor and our account manager are always friendly and helpful. They give good advice on when and where to place adverts and give good coverage to many of our products and services.

Robinsons Motor Group

Vanilla has always been a fantastic read, and one magazine I look forward to receiving every month. Working with the team for our Mercedes-Benz, Smart and SKODA brands, it’s been great to read Lady Cordelia’s reviews – they’re always great fun and a real twist for the trade. Nicky and Laura are such great people to work with too.

We love working with Vanilla magazine. It’s important to us that we’re talked about and seen by potential new customers and we know Vanilla have a strong and affluent readership in our fine city.

Hannah Springham

Operations Director


MKM have been part of Vanilla magazine since its inception and were initially drawn by its targeted approach in a key area for our kitchen and bathrooms business. The enthusiasm of our Account Manager has always made our experience of dealing with Vanilla a pleasure, although we have found this to be the case with the whole team. The magazine is always warmly received every month and we have had nothing but praise for our adverts and features, but more importantly we have seen an increase in advertised product areas.

It has been a pleasure working with the Vanilla team since the launch of the Norwich magazine. Laura has been very efficient and professional in all my dealings with her, I have also been very impressed with her creative and editing skills which give the magazine more ‘pick-up’ appeal.

I look forward to grabbing a copy of Vanilla for my bag and dipping into it for all the latest news and trends in food, fashion and interiors from the exciting independents in Norfolk. I live a very busy lifestyle so am grateful to the Vanilla team for seeking out beautiful things and experiences which I cannot live without! Last season my favourite coat was purchased after seeing it in Vanilla then making a beeline for the shop!

We were looking for a way to gain more exposure as a company, we wanted to let customers know who we were and where we were located. Vanilla magazine have helped enormously and have been great at communicating with us in terms of ideas, sizes and colour schemes. We hope to carry on using Vanilla magazine for the foreseeable future.

Vanilla’s a great magazine. Packed with stuff, all aimed at a predominantly female readership, its readership is a perfect match for our product range. The fact that the team is friendly and helpful is a bonus!

Marketing Director

Image Salon

Image has worked with Vanilla magazine since it’s inception, and we have always enjoyed a very productive relationship. While that relationship is a professional one, it is also a friendly one, and the team at Vanilla are always there with input on ideas for our advertisements. Communication is excellent, so our ads say exactly what we want them to, and the excellent, stylish layout means they always have a great visual impact.

We regularly ask new clients why they choose Image, so we know how many come to us after seeing us in Vanilla. We think that our advertisements in Vanilla represent good value for money and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them.

Ipswich Audi

From the very beginning our relationship with Vanilla has been brilliant – whether we are just running an advert or a special test drive feature.  The magazine compliments the Audi brand and gets to those customers we are always looking to attract or keep. The service we have received from Vanilla has been both professional but informal and always warm and friendly.  We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Vanilla in the future.

Jamie Burrows

Milsom Hotels

What can I say?  Both Michelle and Laura are great to work with for a start, totally professional, very supportive. Vanilla is a great little magazine, very popular with our guests at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall and we are happy to have the publication on our shelves and in our bedrooms for everyone to read or take away. I like the fact that I’m given plenty of time to submit copy and adverts – all I need (usually) is a gentle reminder and I don’t like deadlines. In return for advertising, we’re always offered plenty of editorial which is an added bonus. We like working with them!

Déjà Vu Boutique

I’ve been an avid fan of Vanilla for many years and a proud advertiser, since I launched my business in May 2012. From the outset when Déjà Vu Boutique started trading Michelle, Laura and the team have been so generous in their support providing excellent customer service as well as a fabulous magazine. I can safely say that I have gained a lot of business and increased footfall, achieved from our ongoing advertising and news stories… as customers often quote “We’ve seen you in Vanilla magazine”…. We love Vanilla, thank you for everything!

Vanilla magazine is a great platform to get in front of a house-proud, fashion conscious audience in Ipswich. The team are creative and work alongside our marketing department to produce interesting editorial features.

We have been running our advertising campaign for a number of years and can honestly say we regularly get calls from potential customers, having seen us in Vanilla magazine, that result in sales.

In my opinion Vanilla is the most contemporary local magazine in the market. It is continually evolving and our customer base take note of the products and services it recommends. The team are also a pleasure to work with and are great at promoting local businesses.
