Glossy Colour Print Magazine
WHY ADVERTISE IN the GLOSSY BI-MONTHLY MAGAZINE?
Be seen in MapleLine Magazine. In addition to promoting your business, service or event in the glossy bi-monthly magazine, your participation shows support for good news and great ideas in an ongoing conversation about the growth and changes in the Sooke community. Our ongoing health and arts sections are of value to all readers.
Reader retention is up to 2 months (of the face-date after release) or longer. Most readers indicate long-term periods of reading during times of relaxation. MapleLine excels at delivering accessible writing -- people read our stories all the way through and have a high content retention rate. Time spent with MapleLine includes time viewing your advertisement. The small dimensions of the publication encourage carrying the publication in briefcase, purse or tote bag.
Some printed issues of the magazine will be kept by readers for an entire season (e.g. Christmas season or summer holiday season) or an entire lifetime (if a story is meaningful to an individual, family or group within the community). Some readers are now professing to being 'collectors', with each issue kept in sequence, for future reference.
All ads are full-colour, printed on beautiful glossy stock. Design services included.
