THE Olive Press has been in a continuous state of growth for the past five years – and there’s no secret to our success.
We are the only English-language paper dedicated solely to news about Spain. We also hire NCTJ trained journalists who write their own exclusives and know how to source and deliver the most relevant and intriguing stories for expats.
This ethos has, to our mind, made us the most relevant English language newspaper to Expats in Spain.
And it seems that we are not alone in thinking this – a whole host of official government organisations have chosen the Olive Press’s six editions to publicise serious issues, which make us the newspaper of record for the expat communities in Spain.
The UK government no less has used our pages to reach Brits in Spain with a campaign of informational adverts aimed at expats.
These have been a crucial part of the government’s mission to help Brits deal with brexit.
Now the Diputacion de Malaga has followed suit to urge people to register on the padron.
This is vitally important, not just so local councils can access improved government funding, but also so British expats can abide by Brexit rules and be protected by the UK Spanish agreement.
And who is it the Norwegian police turned to when they wanted to put out a call for information? None other than the Olive Press of course. They knew that our newspapers – and website too – have roots deep in the local expat communities of many different nationalities in Spain. The best chance they had of reaching the people they needed was through us.
The Government of Gibraltar too has turned to the Olive Press to try to attract, as has the University of Gibraltar in search of new students.
And they are not alone – the Junta de Andalucia and local councils such as Benahavis have also recognised the advertising power of the Olive Press in the past few months.
All these major governmental organisations have recognised that the Olive Press reaches readers that others can’t – call us to see how we can help you reach new customers too.
