The Property Guide and it’s team of professionals have grown from a dream of two marketing geniuses several years ago who came to my office and asked if I thought the idea would succeed, to which I immediately pledged my full support by committing to purchase the cover for at least half a year. I have continued with this pledge and will continue for years to come, as it has been one of the greatest tools to our success for marketing real estate in the BVI.
We consider the BVI Property and Yacht Guide a valuable publication as it provides a comprehensive overview of the BVI property market as well as the Yachting industry.

aLookingGlass’s professional creative team collaborate with you to produce advertorials that strategically place your business within a well-produced article, and engage the interest of our readers.
As part of a larger piece, the article will receive increased engagement both in print and online as more intricate articles attract higher traffic volumes, improving your business’ organic online search results. Advertorial themes are selected once annually to make certain you receive year-long exposure from the piece with potential additional online exposure via periodic updates and revisits of previous pieces.
You will find your product or business featured within an article, ranging in size from three to five pages, wherein an overarching theme will guide endorsement content. You would need to supply photography or if necessary, request a photo-shoot before the end-of-the-month deadline. You would also need to be available to supply detailed notes about the business/product and/or consent to an on-site visit of the business or access to the product in order to produce a well-researched endorsement.
The same terms and conditions apply as Full-page endorsement – you will be entitled to approximately half the content
This option allows you to promote a certain product—one that fits a prescribed theme—through a Virgin Islands Property & Yacht endorsement. The one- to two-page spread features other companies’ products under the same conditions.
All material must be supplied to the editor one month before the article is to go to print. Ex: December 31 for a February issue.
