NANAIMO MAGAZINE – JUDY STEPHAN
Written by Bonnie Chomica, www.MarketingDoneWrite.ca
Nanaimo and Voyager Magazines deliver positive, community-oriented content enjoyed by a loyal following of readers. Since 2009, owner and publisher, Judy Stephan, has grown the publication in size, distribution, and popularity.
Locally produced as Nanaimo Magazine, when it travels between Victoria and Campbell River, it is represented as Voyageur Magazine. Advertisers and readers love the extensive distribution on all BC Ferries, in airports, and many business and community outlets, and look forward to grabbing their copy at the first of every month.
Even in this technological age, there is a need for this type of magazine as a good reflection of what the community is all about. People crave positive news, and Nanaimo Magazine consistently delivers an optimistic lineup of stories. There are respectable community news items, small business profiles, interesting personalities, not-for profits support, and arts and entertainment happenings. Along with Judy and two staff writers, there are several content contributors writing about varying interests, and some regular columns, including sports, health, and movie reviews.
Because the magazine is privately owned, it allows for very affordable advertising rates. Small business owners value this less expensive avenue to promote their product or service, and appreciate the flexibility of special packages to suit their advertising needs. Advertising dollars go along way with the wide-spread print distribution, and their website traffic increases also, because their ad in the online version is hyperlinked to their site.
Small businesses that advertise in this feel-good publication, can show their values are aligned with the community-building messages of Nanaimo Magazine. Mention that they are a Chamber Member, and businesses can receive a 10% discount off the rack card prices.
