Distribution AreaBusiness Trader Magazine was created in 1993 and is one of the most cost effective, hard hitting ways to promote your business in the greater Brisbane region.

Business Trader Magazine is the only business to business magazine that is guaranteed to be directly delivered by Australia Post to virtually all of the estimated 50,000 Brisbane businesses.
Businesses just like yours!

There is absolutely no other way that you can get your message to reach all of these businesses anywhere near as cost effectively as the Business  Trader Magazine is able to do.
Absolutely no other way!

80% of Business Trader Magazine advertisers have been regular  advertisers for 3 years or more.
Fact not fiction!

Business Trader Magazine is cleverly positioned to offer the best advertising value, anywhere to be found in Brisbane. It even works out a lot cheaper than doing your own flyer printing and letterbox drops.
Small investment for a huge coverage!


I wouldn’t place 2 pages of advertising in the Business Trader every edition, if I thought it was a waste of money.- Scott Nicholas / Network Office Supplies
Running our business from Sydney is no obstacle to selling promotional products in the South East Queensland area and your magazine has been instrumental in getting our phones ringing over the last 11 years. Thank you!- Sam Wu / AC&C International
We have found this form of advertising more effective than anything we have done in the past, including Yellow Pages.- Brett Moody / Bremco Metal Products
We have been advertising with the Business Trader for the past 10 years. Starting with a modest black and white half page, we then stepped up to two full colour pages. Why? The response has escalated. The exposure has become extremely cost effective. We have discontinued a lot of other print media (due to response) and focused on your publication.- Stewarts Wholesalers
It’s been a pleasure to deal with the Business Trader for the past 6 years. Thank you for your continued support and advice with our advertisements, as the subtle changes have made a huge difference to our response.- Mark Prieditis / Telephone Wreckers
My continued involvement with the Business Trader over the past 14 years has been nothing short of staggering, with the new and long term leads I have picked up.- Ian Godbold / Godbold and Associates
