Advertising with the PC Times

Advertising in the PC Times - what's in it for you?

  • We are the only newspaper to cover the entire geographic distribution of Auckland's sought-after coastal and rural south-east.  Advertisements in our paper reach more than 6,000 households (and growing - fast!).  Beachlands and Clevedon are poised to undergo huge growth over the next few years, and our distribution numbers are expected to significantly increase as a result.   Read more about our distribution area and the type of people who read our newspapers.
  • Because it contains local news about local people and events, our paper is very well read - and advertisers are seen. 
  • We offer a range of advertising options to suit all budgets - from classified ads through to full-page options.
  • We like to make it easy for you - you can supply your ad, or we can create one for you (you will need to send us any logos and images you want to use - see here for more details).
  • Our account manager, Gail Henry, has more than 20 years experience working in community papers - she is always happy to provide advice about what will work best for your size business.   Contact Gail by email or phone 536 5715.
  • We run regular special features with supporting editorial - these are a great way to showcase your business on a page that complements your specialty.  Find out more.
  • If you're a real estate agent, our monthly property guide is the perfect advertising vehicle.

Special Features

Within each issue of the PC Times, we run a special feature about a topic or location of interest (such as fasion, beauty and wellness, weddings, pets, or focusing on local areas such as Clevedon, Howick, Botany etc.).  If they wish, advertisers can supply accompanying editorial may be printed at no cost (at the discretion of the editor) alongside their paid advertisement.  See a list of upcoming special features here.  Contact our Features Consultant, Melody Cutfield, for rates and information.


A business profile advertorial is a great way to give people a more in-depth understanding of the goods or services your business supplies.  Business profiles are about 450 words in length, and provide an overview of what your business does.  You can supply us with the wording, or we can write something for you.  Your logo and company contact details are also included.  Email us for details.

We are happy to insert flyers and brochures within the PC Times for delivery within the Beachlands-Maraetai areas.  Please contact us for prices and details.
