NORWICH Magazine, coming October 2012! NORWICH Magazine, a city magazine that premieres this October, will reach upscale readers each month. City magazines tend to reach a higher-end demographic, and NORWICH Magazine will be no different. Readers will get a monthly dose of all things Norwich and vicinity — people profiles, historic reflections, lots of snapshots of local people at local places and plenty of compelling monthly articles. You’ll find an event calendar, a dining guide and so much more. Consumers will look forward to NORWICH Magazine month after month, a colorful burst of local flavor! This will be a professionally designed and written magazine that will be all about Norwich. NORWICH Magazine will not sit on the floors of lobbies. This will be a subscriber-based, paid magazine. We will also direct-mail copies to desirable households during our launch phase to guarantee advertisers a minimum of 3,000 delivered copies. The premiere October issue will be available late-September. If you want to reach Norwich’s best consumers, you’ll want your ad to be in NORWICH Magazine! Call your Bulletin account executive today or call Elise Green at 860-425-4510.

top reasons magazines make a difference
Magazine advertising moves readers to action, including visiting and searching on the web: More than half
of readers took action or had a more favorable opinion about the advertiser in response to magazine ads, according to Affinity Research. Numerous studies prove that magazine advertising drives web visits and searches more than other media.

Magazine advertising improves advertising ROI:
Multiple studies have demonstrated that allocating more money to magazines in the media mix improves marketing and advertising ROI across a broad range of product categories.

Magazine advertising sells – and it delivers results consistently: Several studies show that magazines are the
strongest driver of purchase intent and boost other media’s effectiveness. What’s more, magazines deliver results more consistently throughout the purchase funnel than TV or the Internet.

Magazines reach the most desirable consumers:
Across major demographic groups, the combination of the top 25 magazines delivers more rating points than the top 25 TV shows. In addition, heavy magazine readers are likely to be among the highest spenders across most product categories.

Magazines have lasting impact: Consumers refer to
magazines multiple times, and even save them, giving advertisers the opportunity for multiple exposures.

Magazines supply credibility: Consumers trust and
believe magazine advertising more than advertising in other media. In addition, consumers turn to magazines as a source for information on new products.
