The Closet Niche - Headshot.jpg

Annie Hanson | CEO

“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!"

The results and service have been nothing but THE BEST!!! I never expected things to reach the level they have with this magazine. The exposure is enormous!! 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!!”

“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.”

 “As small business owners, deciding how to market our businesses isn't easy. We need our marketing to work in order to grow. Otherwise, we are just throwing money away. And no one wants to do that. Even worse, many marketing professionals make deciding what to do even harder. I've left too many meetings with a potential marketer feeling a little slimed by sales tactics and way too unclear about how I'd make my money back with their product or service. Joanie Baker with Cornelius Lakeside Living is different, though. From the first time we ever talked, I never felt pressured to make a decision. Better yet, the strategy behind the magazine made sense. Every month, I knew I'd be in front of thousands of customers in the exact area and demographic my painting company serves. It made signing up with Lakeside Living a no brainer. Not only did I make a return on investment, but in Joanie I also gained an advocate for my business. She doesn't just print your ad and run. She has always found ways to support my business however she could. If you're thinking about running a print ad and the target audience of Lakeside Living makes sense for your business, give Joanie a call before you do anything else. You'll be glad you did.”
