Here's what our Territory owners say
Most people will think of the year 2020 and remember how Covid changed our lives and not for the good. I will remember 2020 as the year that I began my own small business with The Vendor Guide. It is my time to take control of my career and invest in myself and my passion for helping others. And The Vendor Guide has a business model that was a perfect fit for me. Having a sales background and relationships with multifamily has been very helpful too. But all you really need is a desire to connect people and ideas through print. Direct mail drives results. Shared targeted B2B direct mail in a resource style magazine format is a simple and highly effective business strategy.
Here is what one of my happy advertisers had to say Tara Roberts owner of Magic Make Readies.“So excited about this great resource for managers---to have a repertoire of vendors at their fingertips is invaluable!”
I can highly recommend Scott Holgate and owing your own Vendor Guide Territory. Scott and his wife, Lisa have been easy to work with and very encouraging. They worked with me to help me develop everything from my mailing list to my logo for my business (that I love, love, love). In addition, Scott is a wonderful mentor and eager to share information to help me profitable. And I intend to make money with this opportunity that lets me create a flexible lifestyle that prioritizes my family while helping small businesses too!

In January of 2020 we took the plunge and launched Vendor Guide magazine in St.Louis. Little did we know that within a month of starting our own business that our country would be faced with the biggest challenge of our lives. Despite the serious obstacles that came along with the pandemic , our young company has thrived.
The opportunity to open a market with Vendor Guide brand was made possible by the hard work and dedication of the founder of the brand, Scott Holgate and Lisa Huntley. Our entry into the space has been made easier because of the quality that has been created.
Our brand is quickly becoming known as a go-to resource for Multifamily professionals. Featuring high quality print (also provided in an intelligent digital version) and accompanied by web and social presence. Vendor Guide is a valuable tool for suppliers to get their message to just the right people..decision makers in our industry.
The support we receive on a weekly basis is top shelf. Every aspect of our daily business needs are met and supported by the team Scott and Lisa have built with Planet Media. We have been welcomed as a part of this group from day one.
As an independent business owner I can comfortably say that this is the best decision I’ve made in many years. We have been able to reach and maintain profitability from our first issue. We are three issues in and have seen growth every sales cycle.
I have encouraged several colleagues to follow our lead and launch their own market version of Vendor Guide. It is very fulfilling to make your own decisions, set your own targets (not to mention your own schedule) and be your own boss.My only regret is not starting sooner.Michael P-St. Louis
