The success of the Cayman Resident magazine, the eBook version and corresponding website can be attributed to the fact that they are the most comprehensive guides for living and working in the Cayman Islands. The glossy, 400+ page ‘reference style’ magazine is crammed full of vital information and has grown in its support from advertisers and increased its content every year for the last eighteen years. Meanwhile the website continues to grow at an astonishing rate, receiving on average over 30,000 unique visitors per month.

For advertisers, the Cayman Resident guide and website are structured so that your products and services are showcased within editorial content that is targeted at your readership. The guide has a proven record of helping clients acquire new customers and create brand awareness with existing residents in Cayman, as well as new residents before they even arrive on the Island.

6 Reasons to Advertise


Ask to see the testimonials of other readers and customers to appreciate the effectiveness of the guide. Because advertising in the Cayman Resident really works, the number of businesses renewing their advertising has grown every year for eighteen years.


Associating your business with the Cayman Resident, which for eighteen years has developed a reputation for trust and independence, will increase your brand image and ultimately lead to more business.


The ‘reference guide’ format means that the Cayman Resident has a long shelf life and therefore exposes readers to your services on a regular basis for a minimum of 12 months. Free print and web listings further ensure even more exposure for your business.


The Cayman Resident is the most effective advertising medium for exposing potential customers to your brands as they arrive in Cayman (or even before they arrive), which means you are ahead of your competition when it comes to acquiring new customers.


Your advert is displayed alongside information directly relating to your business, thus ensuring that potential customers are exposed to your products and services at exactly the right time. The Cayman Resident targets the profitable new and existing resident market using a focused distribution strategy.


As a print advertiser you get a free online profile, preferential online ranking, and significantly discounted online banner advertising opportunities which will drive more online referrals and brand exposure.

There is no doubt that we have got more business referrals from our advertising in The Resident than any other form of advertising.
