Eat + Drink Advertising Packages

Running a business is a demanding task, no matter how much you love it. Because we understand this, we have created a dedicated Eat + Drink package for Hello Sunshine Magazine to make it easy for you to reach more than 125,000+ SAVVY customers* in the right environment. We also offer unrivalled and SURPRISING value to further your reach through our exclusive multimedia packages and SPIRITED bespoke events.

Connecting Community

We are all about connecting community through storytelling and our EAT + DRINK packages combine brand advertising with engaging editorial that creates an emotional connection with our readers – your customers.

Whether profiling your people, products or partners, it’s all about building your business in the right way and in the right environment.

These savvy opportunities include engaging editorial such as:

  • Chef Q+A / Meet the Barista / Behind the Bar
  • Farmer & The Chef / What’s Brewing
  • Recipe or Cocktail Creation
  • Event preview or review

Say Hello to a new way…

At Hello Sunshine, it’s not about you advertising with us, it’s about how we can connect you with our community. Say ‘hello’ to a savvy, surprising and spirited alternative today. Where else can you receive advertising and editorial in a premium lifestyle magazine + social media promotion + inclusion in a targeted e-newsletter + bespoke events for an average of $138 +GST per week?

  • Based on a half page advert over a 12 month (4 edition) campaign.

More than a Magazine

Alongside our stunning print magazine sits our additional marketing channels, all part of the SPIRITED Hello Sunshine service. These include:

We want to keep our community engaged and informed with your brand and because we are constantly working with you and for you, this allows us to better understand and add value to your business.

Our Hello Sunshine family also has access to free graphic design and professional photography and invitations to our exclusive launch parties where you can celebrate and connect with other like-minded business owners.

Bespoke Brand Activation

Reaching new customers and offering existing customers the chance to engage with your brand in a more meaningful way is paramount to building a resilient brand. Our team is here to help and our Wine Lunch series has proved extremely successful for participating venues. Not only do you get to take all the bookings and profits from the day but the PR and Marketing value before and after the event places your brand top-of-mind with our loyal readers and followers. Because we value your business, this activation is included free of charge for clients who book 4 or more half page or full page insertions with Hello Sunshine.

We provide the opportunity to showcase your venue and menu to a targeted audience; you handle the bookings (and the proceeds) and we promote the event before, during and after!

The package includes a complimentary half page advertisement accompanied by editorial promoting the event. Our digital channels (social media, website and e-newsletter) will continually promote and preview the event and your business. On the day, we help you run the day by providing a professional MC, social photographer, and our team will be there to ensure your guests have a great time and all the action is shared live on our social media platforms. It doesn’t end there! Post-event, we publish a recap in the magazine and online with social photos and a review of the event.

It doesn’t have to be a wine lunch – talk to our team about other bespoke events we have created to fit with a client’s brand personality and let’s work on something together.

*The estimate of more than 125,000 customers would be reached through our print magazine with 20,000 copies and an accepted industry average of 4.6 readers per magazine (that’s 92,000 readers!) PLUS a combined social media reach of more than 25,000 per month and growing; PLUS our weekly e-newsletter and website with more than 1300 page views per month for more than 3 ½ minutes per session. We are only a few months old so these figures are growing daily!

Our “Everyone Has a Story” podcast has had over 38,000 downloads since launching in 2018.
