“When you consider the exposure you gain advertising in Flagship, it is really good value for money. We’ve definitely seen a return on our investment and we continue to regularly advertise in the magazine - it is our advertising medium of choice.”  Bruce Hall, General Manager Aqua Cars

“We are aware of the need for appropriate brand association and Flagship has proven to be suitable brand partner. We tried advertising in an interactive way using the magazine's competition option and have been delighted with the response.”  Rhoda Joseph, Cascades Shopping
