To see what our readers tell us, go here.
We do plan to take part on the group ad again. It did bring us a few clients last year.
Mary Lou Brock, The Wearable Art Show
That was a good article. We had a few good inquiries as a result. Some even made appointments to visit to view the properties.
Bryan Barfoot, Timberstone Shores
I was very pleased to get a $5,000 job as a direct result of my ad in the Spring issue of your magazine. My new client told me they had phoned other people, but none of them showed up for the appointment. I did. Advertising, and following up, works.
Harold Kirkland, Irish Cabinet Maker
We are very happy with your magazine. It is very thoughtful, interesting and relative to the Niagara Escarpment. We would still love to have copies of the magazine at our location to give to our customers.
Pat Stornebrink, Under the Stars RV
At Highland Grounds we have people come in looking for the magazine and we’ve had people come in because of the advertising in the magazine. Advertising with Niagara Escarpment Views helped put us on the map and brought us lots of regulars and seasonal visitors stopping in our area. We may come back to advertise in the future, but for now we have become busy thanks to our name getting out!!!! Thanks NEV!!!
Shawn Ankenmann, Highland Grounds
I thank you and your team for all of your help and amazing support. We believe you have a beautiful magazine with terrific articles.
Jennifer McBride, Peel Hardware & Supply, Caledon
Working with Niagara Escarpment Views has been a great asset for us. People sometimes think it is our in-house magazine……so, many thanks for the news and all the good work!!
Bob Barnett, Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy
We actually had an enquiry for a group trip from St. Catharines for Fiddler [on the Roof] so we know that the ad is being read along the Escarpment!
Mark & Nanci Llewellyn, Globe Productions
I keep every copy to plan our future excursions… My next destination is Georgetown Yarn.
June Sheldrake, Hamilton
I just wanted you both to know how much I enjoy Niagara Escarpment Views… It makes me want to explore every place that you show your readers…

As you know Niagara Escarpment Views is very popular here at the Orangeville Visitors’ Information Centre. Just wanted to tell you an interesting story. We had a couple from Pennsylvania drop by to pick up an “Art Walk of Tree Sculptures” map. They were on a road trip through Northern Ontario that brought them on the Bruce Peninsula (via the Chi-Cheemaun) and driving south to Niagara Falls and home. Along the way they picked up a copy of NEV, read the article, “Orangeville’s Street Art: Enhancing Community” and decided that they “just had” to check out Orangeville and its tree sculptures. They took our brochure and the magazine home as souvenirs.
Susan Reynolds, Tourism Officer, Orangeville Visitors Information Centre
We just had a couple in from Acton that read the article in the magazine and decided to drive up and check out the Trees and Town.
Mara Prociw, Tourism Officer, Orangeville Visitors Information Centre
I really enjoy your magazine. For a few issues you had an advertiser that was a butcher shop, with a few locations. They advertised that they carried Chiannina beef. I haven’t seen their ad lately and do not have a back copy to find them. Do you have the company name as I wish to visit one of their locations to order this product.

The ad for Clearview Station B&B at Creemore perked our interest. A unique romantic 2 day anniversary getaway this summer included slumbers in a caboose & breakfasts par excellence with caring charming hosts.
Clare Johnston, Fergus
In a recent article in Niagara Escarpment Views I wrote about EBC offering…a conservation bargain. One generous donor invited me over and handed me 12 monthly cheques for $210 each.
Bob Barnett, Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy
Recognizing that NEV needs advertising $$$, please know that your current style and advertiser content is as integral to the publication as the journalistic and photographic content.
June Sheldrake, Hamilton
I will go ahead and invite readers to specifically consider doing business with NEV advertisers. After all, they believe in the community.
Lee Ann Knudsen, Cheltenham
Just a quick note to say thank you for the great exposure we got in the last issue of Niagara Escarpment Views. The article and picture looked great, thank you very much.
Robert Weeden, Pollen Bee Nest
We have had requests for the Niagara Escarpment Views Magazine for the Summer months. Do you know when they will be delivered to the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce? We have the Spring one here on display.
Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce
Hi Mike, Just wanted to thank you for the box of Views the other day! Your magazine is fabulous. One of our regular customers, a hiker, saw it in Owen Sound (I think) and wondered why we hadn’t received it here at the Visitors Information Centre. She was delighted to hear it was delivered. You and Gloria certainly put a lot into it. Thank you so much!
Susan Reynolds, Tourism Officer, Orangeville Visitor Information Centre
I am reaching out to you on behalf of the Tourism London team to request brochures from your region. We would appreciate it if you could send us 50 copies of your brochure when they become available.
Nelia Gubbels, Tourism London
Your magazine has been a big hit at my shop. People are glad to take a copy. I was happy you included me in your last edition. I have been giving copies away. People are happy to receive them. I also took them to “Telling Tales” Festival in Rockton.
Sylvia Simpson, Hamilton
Publishers’ note: Your ad has a very long exposure. Sometimes for years: In Spring 2016 we sold two copies of Winter 2010! Mary Pillisch wanted the feature article on Mildred Mahoney’s dollhouses, even though this article is available on this site for free!
“Just saw the magazine today. Love the ad especially the snow in front of the blowers.”
Linda Hill, Adams Equipment, Georgetown
“I’ve been wanting to go up to Manitoulin Island for awhile and reading NE Views increases my interest even more. I hope to make it up there one of these days, I haven’t been since I went on a family trip in the early 60s.”
David McDonald, Toronto
“I’m writing to congratulate you on producing the most read magazine in our Guest House. The magazine has lasting value and is frequently on the top of our magazine racks. We have to frequently replace some issues as they gravitate to bags to travel home with our guests so they can digest the entire magazine at their leisure. For us transplants from the south it’s a chance to keep up with what’s happening back home. For our visitors to the area and us locals it’s great to learn more about our area. In this regard a popular article is the one on the Beaver River by Sandra J Howe (2014-summer issue) and Wiarton’s Spirit Rock (Summer 2015) by the same author. We keep a stock of these issues around. Keep up the good work.”
Richard Bowering, The Bowering Guest House, Ravenna
“Please include me in the summer ad. Why? Because:
– I believe advertising requires repetition
– I like the fact that NEV has my branch listed on the back as a location to obtain a copy
– I grew up along the escarpment
– My branch is located along the escarpment
– My clients are involved in the escarpment (Bruce Trail Association, hiking, skiing, etc.)
– I expect the demographics of NEV readers are well aligned with my target client group
– My clients periodically pick up a copy and take it with them
– The cost is reasonable.
Todd Neff, Edward Jones, Burlington
A couple told me that they were from Toronto and came to the Brewhouse because they saw our ad in Escarpment Views.
Jamie Leder,Collins Brewhouse, Ancaster
“The Winter Views is gorgeous! We are on the Niagara Escarpment in Beaver Valley. The magazine is sitting in every home I visited over the holidays.”
Laura Artibellow, Beaver Valley
“Thanks for the great article. We are completely full at the moment and two people are thinking of becoming members. So we are afraid to advertise and attract more people who might not find anything to rent or own! A nice problem to have? Again thanks for all your support. We may take an ad in the future.”
Brenda Dolling, Whole Village, Caledon
“Thanks to your editor’s page – found ‘Maple Hill Tree Service’ to help with our tree damage! Thanks!”
Valda May, Norval
Your ad design was spot on and instant. Thank you very much. Very pleased with your service.
Dawn Loney, Keppel Croft Gardens, Owen Sound
“A woman called from Queenston asking for a copy of Escarpment Views and drove to my Stamford Home Hardware store in Niagara Falls to get a copy. She later called back saying ‘What a great magazine, when’s the next one coming out?’ I was impressed that she called me just to tell me how wonderful she thought the magazine was!”
Bert Prinzen, Stamford Home Hardware, Niagara Falls
“Advertising with Escarpment Views Magazine has allowed us the opportunity to reach a different audience. It has been very beneficial to advertise with Escarpment Views as we have seen an increase in sales that were directly related to advertising in Escarpment Views.”
Lorraine Roberts, Plant Paradise Country Gardens
“Foodstuffs has been pleased from the premiere issue with the professionalism, attention to detail, grace and care with which we’ve been treated by Escarpment Views. Ad placement always shows aesthetic consideration and a good sense of our existing and potential clientele. The “Worth the Visit” feature launched with a visit to Foodstuffs was helpful in reinforcing our decision to advertise with EV… we’ve had many comments and compliments, several new customers and the quick sale of the two decorative signs we posed with in a group photograph!”
Marcia Dye, Foodstuffs
