Ongoing communication is important

There are a variety of ways you may communicate with companies you would like to have as advertisers. Both prospective advertisers as well as your current ones will expect a good return on their investment. It’s your job to entice them with your readership, encourage them to stay, and show them time-and-again that your publication is where they want to be. Here are some ways to do that:

Subscriber profiles

Magazines often survey their readers in order to provide vital information to prospective advertisers. This information may be presented to advertisers in a variety of forms. View samples
