“Advertising in The Edge has been a blessing. In fact, the readers of The Edge are not just an ‘audience’ but a community that is open-minded and actively interested in growth. In these times when budgets are tight, advertising in The Edge is money well-invested. Plus, Cathy & Tim are so helpful in helping get our messages out!” ~ Susan Just, CH & CPHI, Success Coach, Certified Hypnotherapist, with Dynamic Minds, Inc., www.dynamicmindsinc.com

2. ADVERTISING WILL GROW YOUR BUSINESS

Magazine Advertising Sells – and it delivers results consistently. Studies show that magazines are the strongest driver of purchase intent, and they actually boost the effectiveness of other media. What’s more, magazines that also are online with links to your website are nearly twice as effective. Edge magazine offers a free online version, The Digital Edge, each month with links to your site at no extra cost.

“A big part of why I moved to the Twin Cities from Baltimore is because of the abundance of alternative and New Thought papers, The Edge being the clear leader. Coming from a city that could barely keep one such paper alive, I don’t take for granted the incredible value of having a quality publication that I know everybody in my target audience reads. Advertising is affordable, and even in lean times I don’t even consider reducing my advertising because The Edge is a publication worth supporting. I know what it’s like to live without.” ~ Lynn Woodland, www.lynnwoodland.com

“The Edge has been a lifeline for our small rural business. Brigid’s House is in the resort town of Park Rapids, MN, and always when tourists come in our store they say they saw our ad in The Edge. It is a great way to inform a target audience about what you have to offer. The Edge is the number one place that customers tell us they saw our ad.” ~ Jeanne Troge, www.brigidshouse.com

“The only publication I have advertised in since April 2001 is The Edge. Please keep in mind that this is my full-time job. The first few months weren’t very profitable and I hardly received any calls at all from my ad. I remained patient though, and it has really paid off for me big time. Approximately 95 percent of my calls come from Edge Magazine. Time and time again, people say they feel confident in coming to me because I am the only one they remember from The Edge — and because Edge magazine has its digital edition online now, I am getting even more calls from all over the USA. I wouldn’t think of going to any one else for my advertising.” ~ Deborah Lynn11, psychic and medium, Stillwater, MN, www.deborahlynn11.com
