“Advertising with Best Version Media in the Mooresville and Cornelius Lakeside Living, has contributed so much to the success and growth of The Closet Niche in our 1st year of business! The 1st article we ran brought us a ton of exposure and business within the first week of the magazine being released. We closed over a dozen consultations and saw an immediate return on our investment!"

“I’ve been involved with Lakeside Living Magazines for almost five years as a local advertiser and author of quarterly articles representing my field of automotive service and repair. As you can probably imagine, there’s a long list of automotive topics that readers want to know about; everything from preventative maintenance, repairs, emerging technology, explanation of vehicle systems, costs of ownership, and so on. I love it when customers come into my shop and mention an article I’ve written! This happens somewhat frequently. Recently a gentleman came in with the Lakeside Living Magazine rolled up in his hand, while tapping it into the palm of his other hand asking, “who wrote this piece about repairs?” I introduced myself as the author and owner of the business. He said he enjoys reading the articles and uses what he reads. Early on, I wondered if my messages really reached the reader. Doubt no more, and never ever underestimate the power of print.”

I can’t thank Joanie enough for the hard work and dedication to her clients!! The continuous work and recommendations that have come from this advertisement is a dream. Thank you for what you do!!”

Our Ideal Audience

An ideal audience for most businesses, we serve tens of thousands of affluent Lake Norman residents in over 250 lakeside communities in the towns Cornelius and Mooreville. This includes all multi-million dollar homes along over 400+ miles of shoreline and all lakeside neighborhoods on the top of and bottom of Lake Norman. All of our homes are over 3000 sf up to 10,000 sf and average Lake Norman family incomes in these communities are over $200,000. This is an ideal target audience for most businesses, as more affluent residents have more money to spend on products and services and can pay out of pocket and on time. This is also a very influential, connected audience ripe for referrals, with investment and vacation properties to service, and are often commercial business owners or high level management decision makers leading to commercial work opportunities.

About Us

Owner, Lakeside Living LKN
Publisher, Lakeside Living Magazines

Lakeside Living LKN Magazines are the community magazines of the lakeside areas of Cornelius & Mooresville, North Carolina. We also serve Huntersville and Denver with our brother and sister publications. We communicate, educate and celebrate all that is Lake Norman: communicating relevant, interesting, local information; educating residents on who to know, what to do, and where to go; and celebrating where we live, the people who live here, and our top local businesses. We are community-oriented, family-friendly, positive publications that work to build up, bridge, and support both our residential and business communities, bringing neighbors together.


How We Got Started

When I moved to Lake Norman in 2013 I found finding things was difficult. With so many transplants here, few seemed to know where to go, what to do, and who to call for various services. I created Lakeside Living LKN  to help both new and established residents find fun things to do, special places to go, and great service providers. We want to connect and celebrate the interesting people of Lake Norman and make our town feel like more of a HOMEtown.
