Our goal is to provide a wide spectrum of advertising options so that all sizes of businesses can effectively use Natural Awakenings Magazine to promote their products and services. Ads (color or black and white) range in size from a business card size to full-page spreads, with many sizes and orientations in between.
Every edition of Natural Awakenings features a classified section read by thousands. These text ads (placed beneath a category heading) are a perfect option to advertise a service or product, space or rooms to rent, special opportunities, help wanted, etc. Written as a single paragraph, the first several words are in BOLD CAPS to draw attention to key information.
The CRGs are in a special section at the back of the magazine which lists advertisers by category for readers who are looking for specific products or services.
CRG listings typically include business name (or business owner’s name), business location (list town only if business location is a private residence), contact phone number, email, and/or website, four header lines for contact information, a brief description written as a single paragraph and a headshot photo or logo, which helps readers establish a personal connection and/or familiarity with you/your company.
CRG Ads are available by six-month and twelve-month contract only, and are billed monthly or can be paid up front for an additional 10% discount. CRG Ad prices include one category heading, photo or logo and description of product or service (rates are based on total character and space count and length of ad run). Click here to see six-month and twelve-month group rates.
Display advertisers receive a discounted rate off corresponding contract periods. Click here to see six-month and twelve-month group rates.
Our calendars contain listings for classes/workshops, meetings, seminars and other events. These community event listings are $15 for up to 350 characters and spaces and $20 for up to 450 characters and spaces.
Display advertisers with 1/6 page and larger ads, and Community Resource Guide (CRG) advertisers with display ad receive up to five free listings (up to 350 characters and spaces) per issue.
Display advertisers with 1/8 page or business card size ads, Community Resource Guide (CRG) advertisers without display ad, and Mark Your Calendar advertisers receive two free calendar listings (up to 350 characters and spaces) per issue.
These text ads appear in the calendar sections. They are a great option for drawing extra attention to your event, ensuring people “save the date,” or advertising events outside of the region to draw audiences from a larger geographical area.
Mark Your Calendar Ad rates are based on total character and space count. Click here to see our group rates and to submit a Mark Your Calendar Ad. Mark Your Calendar advertisers also receive two free Calendar listings.
Each February, Natural Awakenings Magazine prints a Natural Living Resource Directory chock full of descriptive information on a variety of modalities used to enhance health and wellness. This annual directory is intended to serve as a reference for readers year-round, and, is, therefore, also filled with local advertisers sharing information about their offerings.
