Belmar, NJ, July 31, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Remember the classic magazine ads for Maxell cassette tapes where the guy in a chair is literally being blown away by the sound coming out of his speakers? What about the first time you were introduced to Absolut Vodka by the bottle's stunning imagery on a page? Or the iconic symbol of Uncle Sam demanding you join the Army? For over a hundred years, print ads have been effective marketing tools, sometimes even treated as artwork themselves. Internet banner ads, sadly, do not share that history. New Jersey Stage magazine believes that print ads can be relevant again and for a price that every business can afford, thanks to digital publishing.
New Jersey Stage is a new digital magazine that incorporates the best features of the web into the look and feel of a print publication. For advertisers, this means the ability to add audio, video and interactive elements directly into their ad. They get to combine the space and design possibilities of a print ad with the features of a website, to get the best of both worlds.
"When was the last time anyone ever said, 'Wow! That's a great banner ad?'" asked Gary Wien, publisher of New Jersey Stage. "We want to make ads interesting again. A great print ad actually adds to the design of a magazine. People don't simply fly past a great print ad the way they avoid banner ads. The design lures you in and with the added touches of audio, video, and interaction, ads become something people actually want to see."
New Jersey Stage has set up what it calls "The Best Advertising Deal". Advertisers who purchase a full-page ad in the magazine for $100 will have their actual ad appear in rotation on the website as well. This is a giant 400 x 518 (pixels) ad that demands the user's attention. In addition, advertisers are able to change their ad each week at no additional cost.
"We're changing the way people look at digital advertising," said Wien. "The combination of print design with web features makes ads exciting again. Imagine taking out an ad in a monthly magazine, yet being able to have users see a different ad every week. Links back to your website and social networks, pop-up maps and driving directions, even video. You can literally run a TV commercial inside your ad! The possibilities are endless."
Ad rates for New Jersey Stage magazine range from $25 for a 1/6 page ad to $100 for a full-page ad. Pages are built on the standard 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. All ads are full-color and may include audio, video, and interactive elements at no additional cost.
