High Quality Local Magazines Produced By Independent Editors Supporting Their Local Community


I was really struggling to find the right work life balance in my last job…

I’d fallen out of love with what I did, and I was really missing spending more time with my two children.

I desperately wanted to find a more child friendly career, where I could still work hard but where i was in charge of my time and so could be there for my kids.

Raring2go! has turned out to be the perfect answer.  It really couldn’t have gone any better.  I was worried that I didn’t have the right experience, especially sales experience, but the support, guidance and “hands on” help Raring2go! offer is amazing.

I love what I do, I see my kids and I make excellent money for the time I chose to put in.

Raring2go lets me have the freedom I need to concentrate on the things that matter to me while also being able to run a profitable business that fits in around my time and my life.

Great support and low overheads…

I had worked in media, events and advertising sales previously so a magazine publishing franchise was a natural choice, I researched Raring2go! and was really impressed with what I found.

I now have the support of a national network and because the magazine itself is of a very high quality it is not hard to sell advertising space. The business is very flexible in terms of hours, the overheads are low so the rewards can be what you want them to be.

The level of support both from head office and from other franchise owners has been great.   I would certainly recommend the franchise to others as it offers a good work life balance.  If you put the hard work in during the first 12 months and build up relationships with clients then you’ll get the results you want.

Profit Levels are great!

I was made redundant and I found Raring2go! and it really appealed to me as it allows me to have much more flexibility so I can spend more time with my two children.

“So far it could not have gone much better, profit levels are great and I am getting new customers coming on board all the time. I have advertisers who have been with me since I started and quite a few on annual deals. It’s also nice thinking you are giving the local family community a service they can really benefit from, everyone I speak to is so positive and responsive about it, I know if I wasn’t editing the magazine I would be using it to see what is going on for my kids.

“The training and on-going support has been excellent,  I would definitely recommend a Raring2go! franchise to anyone who is considering it, it’s the best decision I have ever made. It gives you so much flexibility to work around your family life, and is also very rewarding both financially and personally.”

Most of my business has come from advertising through Raring2go!

When starting my business three years ago, I approached Raring2go! to advertise. The rates where very reasonable and the service is excellent.  I would not hesitate to recommend this magazine to anyone wanting to build and maintain a business which relies attracting young people and families to your service.

The World Outside

‘Raring2go! has been a fantastic partner to work with since 2010.

Raring2go! is a very effective platform for us to market our family holidays. It helps us speak to a new customer base and encourages them to book a break or family holiday with Haven. The channel is perfect for reaching parents, the team at Raring2go! are superb to work with and the results have been great.

Sarah Clark

Marketing Manager, Haven Holidays

For return on investment, Raring2go! has always proved the most profitable.

We offer a free child return on all adverts,  and out of all the marketing we do, Raring2go! easily brings the most back!

Julie Nicholls

General Manager, Rays Farm

Our magazines are delivered to schools who put a copy in each child’s book bag.  

So we know they get seen – which our advertisers love.

85% of readers keep hold of the magazine until the next issue comes out or until the vouchers expire (which is usually in 3 months) 


2 Way Candidate Selection

We are really careful who we work with.  It’s as much about them being right for the opportunity as it is the opportunity being right for them.   That may sound big headed, but we’ve been round the block a bit and know what it takes to make this particular opportunity work.  So we don’t work with people just because they have a cheque book, we work with people that we know we can help turn their drive into a business that gives them the results they want.
