There are great opportunities for advertising. We have published a bi-monthly magazine on pulp, paper and allied industries. We also publish an exhibition Show Catalog.
When it comes to magazine advertising, most people think of the large, glossy, national publications full of big brand advertisers. And it may seem like your own business doesn’t belong alongside the “big guys,” especially if you don’t sell your product outside a one-hundred-mile radius–or even outside of your own state. But that’s just not the case.
In fact, it’s quite possible the next time you open one of those national magazines to see an ad for a business that’s right in your own town that just has that one location. That’s because, like a lot of other forms of advertising, many national magazines have local sections aimed at smaller businesses. Of course, these local sections are a bit larger than what you may be used to, covering such areas as the “Northeast” or the “Southwest” parts of the United States. So while you’ll be reaching people way outside your neighborhood, you’ll also attract local business (and may just wow the locals who see your ad on those pages).
Of course, advertising in magazines with national distribution is going to be expensive even if you’re only advertising in the local sections, and it’s not be the way to go for most small or midsized businesses. You don’t really need to cast such a large net–what you really need is to choose publications that are closely associated with your target market.
