Our Story

Link Magazine has been serving the Montgomery County community since 2008.

Owner and founder Russell Kalousek grew up in The Woodlands area and still resides in Montgomery County. His entrepreneurial background started at an early age with a lawn mowing business run by him and his brother, Matt. Perhaps, they were inspired by their father who owned and operated a driving range in Montgomery County with a 9-hole, 3-par golf course. The entrepreneurial blood runs thick in this local family, as Matt opened his local business, Graphic DesignFX in 2006, and the two brothers renewed their business partnership once again with the opening of Link Magazine 2 years later.

Russell studied marketing and business at Stephen F. Austin State University.  Drawing from his education and first-hand knowledge of Montgomery County, he developed Link Magazine as an innovative format for local businesses to connect and engage with the local community and offer local news and savings. 


As a restaurant with challenges in identifying and attracting new customers, the Link Magazine Local was a huge surprise and major success.  We marketed in two mail publications at the same time and the return rate on Link Magazine turned out to have a 5X greater response rate than the other publication.  Now that alone would be the major selling part.

But the difference in approach between the two defined the difference between a vendor and a partner.  Link came to my location and shot photos of my food at no charge and worked up a professional ad versus a cheap and clumsy ad.  The other publication would reach out with 24 hours prior to print and offer no real contribution that made you stand out.

I am already waiting to start the next phase of work with a new menu and logo.

So you can appreciate the impact.  The day of release was a Monday and we did more business on Monday than the 3 prior Fridays and we were standing room only.  The next day, we beat Monday.  

I would recommend with out reservation.

I met Matt Kalousek in the fall of 2006 while The Goose’s Acre was still under construction.  He was just getting started with his new company and was eager to work.  I am happy to say that the eagerness and desire to do the best job possible has never faltered.  Matt has taken so much time and care in creating the perfect media for The Goose.  He actually listens to what I want and what outcome I am expecting and then creates the perfect media solution!  He took my menu from a list of items we sell to a walking billboard for my weekly specials, live entertainment and catering program! Any type of media I have ever requested, Matt and Woodlands Graphics have done perfectly.  Anywhere from table tents to banners to tee signs for our charity golf tournament…all have been great. When Matt came to me to advertise in his magazine Link I was skeptical.  I finally decided to do it for one month and see how it went.  I don’t know why I didn’t listen to him all along!  I am amazed by the amount of traffic that one ad generates!  And I can’t begin to count how many people told me they didn’t know about us or had never been before they saw the ad.  Needless to say…we’ve been doing the ad in Link ever since! I am very thankful for all that Matt has done for The Goose’s Acre and would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of a good “print guy”!
