Welcome to Essex Business & Leisure

Essex Business and Leisure Marketing is a family business made up of three local community magazines. Starting in August 2010, Essex Business and Leisure looked to offer local people
a ‘go-to place’ to find their local businesses. After a year or so of perfecting a combination of interesting articles and a variety of local businesses, the magazines have gone from strength to strength in their local areas, providing their valuable customers with an invaluable marketing technique to grow their businesses with local customers.

Our small family business is now made up of three magazines and three sister companies. Essex Business and Leisure Ltd looks after the magazine adverts and editorial. Basildon Leaflets is in charge of distribution of the magazine and offers clients an alternative marketing approach through local leaflet distribution and The Essex Printer organises the printing and design of the magazine as well as offering customers a print and design service for their own businesses.
