The original Mojacar Magazine was launched in September 2007 and 14 editions were produced with the help from local businesses. It then took a break, but in December 2020 we revised it with the 15th edition. The magazine is owned and run by Ian Steel who has spent over 35 years in the publishing industry and has seen many changes over the years. He is also assisted by Yasmin Conrad-Davies who looks after promotion, advertising and editorial content, Yasmin is a local hairdresser and lives in Mojacar.
The concept was formed on the back of Ian’s love of the area and he is passionate about promoting the area and the businesses that trade. The magazine, is an on-line product only and therefore is greener and more cost effective than other local publications that are a printed product. The team actively encourage local businesses to submit editorial and local people to do likewise.
Advertising in the magazine is extremely cost effective and during the COVID crisis has been cut even further. Apart from the magazine we also have Mojacar Magazine Group on Facebook that is constantly gaining momentum and members. In just 6 months we have grown our Member base to over 1200 people and its growing all of the time.
Ian says “we actively encourage people to join and contribute to the pages and there is a sound knowledge base if you have a question”.
