Print is dead? Think again!
Like vinyl records, print magazines never really went away. The tangible, printed page is still the most enduring way to reach your audience. Unlike a digital ad that is out of mind the second the web page is closed, your printed ad remains visible and viable for as long as the magazine is kept. And, as we’re told repeatedly, each issue of our magazine stays around for months and years. Wrightsville Beach Magazine is the longest-lived, most celebrated and read local publication of its kind. We’ve been telling your stories for 23+ years — that’s 276 issues and counting!
Print done right — the way we do it — is still the best way to get your business’s message across. Your ad, wrapped by our award-winning, original content, will reach a huge pool of our loyal readers: well-educated, prosperous, potential customers and clients from young professionals to retirees. Your advertising dollar goes further. Ads placed in other publications could cost less, but those publications only have a fraction of the distribution and nowhere near the shelf life that the printed Wrightsville Beach Magazine has. And the virtual online edition? It is out there forever, very relevant decades later we are happy to say.
