Why Advertise With Us?

“I read it cover to cover.” At WNC WOMAN, we hear this again and again from our readers, an estimated 32,000 intelligent, active, upscale, down-to-earth women who are passionate about our magazine.

Western North Carolina Woman is a monthly publication written by women, for women, about women. We focus on women’s strength, wisdom, courage—and humor! Our readers are married, single, young, old, “of a certain age”, and everything in between. They are affluent, savvy, educated, and they are passionate about WNC Woman magazine. And being women, they are responsible for more than 80% of all buying decisions, so advertising with us is really a no-brainer.

If you need more reasons to advertise with us, here are a few:

• We are one of Western North Carolina’s most popular monthly publications. In 2010 we were voted Best Free Publication in Mountain Xpress’ Best of Poll (and had been in 2nd place several years in a row).

• We print between 15,500 and 16,000 copies each month and are currently distributed in more than 450 locations in the WNC region: mostly in Buncombe, Madison, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Transylvania and Yancey counties; we are in Boone, at several University libraries, and we have booths at festivals and other arts, cultural, and woman-oriented events.

• Because we are a monthly publication (rather than daily or weekly) and because women tend to keep our magazine, rather than toss it, your ad is in front of your reader’s eye for a very long time. If you are advertising a dated event you will also be listed in our Calendar in print and online, with a note pointing to your ad’s page.

• Our beautiful design provides a quality environment for your ad.

• We are a content-rich publication, so yours will not get lost in a sea of other ads.

• Our print publication is supported by a website and other online resources. Each issue is online in perpetuity with your ad just as it appears on the printed page.

• Our Marketplace section is another option (free with a 12 month contract for print ad) that enables you to reach our readers with a bit more personal information about yourself and your business.

• Oh yeah—men read us too!

Call our office today at 828-649-9555 and we’ll put one of our super advertising sales executives in touch with you to talk about joining our family of advertisers.
