Neighbors read Advocate Magazines, and they recommend businesses they see in Advocate Magazines to their neighbors and friends. Businesses love to say they build their business through word-of-mouth — there’s no better way to build word-of-mouth marketing to target customers than Advocate Magazines.


    1. Advocate Magazines Works Hard to Help You Succeed. Big budgets or small, Advocate Magazines will work with you to build a marketing campaign that will reach our readers and build your business. We have a number of print and digital products available at a variety of price points to make sure you can reach your target customer where and when it makes the most sense, regardless of your budget. Pro Tip: “Just because something costs less doesn’t mean it’s saving you money. Don’t assume the lowest price wins. Consider all aspects of what you are paying for when considering media options.” (i) Be sure you ask, and understand, how many people a publication or media product reaches, where the people live and what is the demographic make-up of the audience. Make sure the publication can prove that people read their product, too. (Don’t just assume it, ask for proof.) Sure, you can always find a lower price — but that probably means your advertising won’t be seen by as many people, especially the customers you are targeting.
