WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS ARE SAYING
“We Started advertising last year in WNC Woman magazine and found that advertising doesn’t have to cost, but that it really pays off! It took about three months before we started getting calls from the ads we placed, but have been receiving several calls monthly since then. We have recently continued our advertising with a second 12-month contract with WNC Woman.” Thanks, Steve and Jim of Mountain Water Systems.
Sandi, I wanted to drop you this note to let you know what great results I get from my ad in WNCW each month. Every month, I get at least one call (often more) from someone who has seen it and needs to talk more with me. It shows me over and over that I am not the only one who reads all the ads each month – that others are doing that as well. I just got off a call with a great new contact and these were her exact words: “Your ad is SCREAMING out at me and I knew I needed to connect.” Now since I am in marketing, I know that how an ad is designed is important but I also know that WNCWoman reaches many in my target market and they pay careful attention to the articles and the ads. So I want to encourage anyone who is thinking about advertising – if you do it consistently over time – it does pay off! I think also your sales reps have some guidelines to provide that give suggestions about how to design an ad that works. I suggest anyone interested get with one of them and find out how to do it. I am living proof it works! Saralyn Collins, Magnetic Business Builder
“Since what we’re advertising is the Girls Nite Out, we quickly ruled out advertising in hunting magazines etc. (not that women wouldn’t make fine hunters.) Our advertisement in Western North Carolina Woman has proven quite effective. WNC WOMAN reaches Buncombe County west to the Tennessee line and north to the Boone area [and east to Winston-Salem and south to Tryon] and through the Internet, the world. We’re quite pleased with the response we receive through WNC WOMAN and ours is not a large ad. We also enjoy reading WNC WOMAN.” Casey DuPree, Anne Rhymer and Preston Tinsley of Girls’ Nite Out.
I ran my first ad in WNC WOMAN last October and received a great response. I am continuing to advertise and receive calls every week. It has been an excellent source to reach prospective clients. I highly reccomend WNC WOMAN and Linda. She has been very helpful. Michele Denise, Crystal Healing Bed.
“We just got another call from our ad in WNC WOMAN! We love the magazine, and you guys.” Priestley Cummings Ford and Laura McCue, White Oak Financial.
“Repetition is an important key to learning, for folks to see my Silver Spirits Photography ad many times over, during the span of many editions, has been very effective in creating a “brand” recognition in their minds. It is a customer’s nature to think over decisions before actually committing to a purchase. Having a continuing reminder in the form of a well-crafted print ad has been invaluable in drawing clients to me, but it does take time and repeated print ad exposure. I have been very happy with the increased business that has resulted from continuous advertising in WNC WOMAN.” Max Poppers, Silver Spirits Photography
“I just got a new client who told me she had cut out the ad and carried it around for six months before she called me. And she’s exactly what I’m looking for in a client.” Heidi Stewart, Attorney
