Active Audience

We're dedicating a portion of our circulation to a dynamic group of contacts called Active Audience. This innovative approach to print magazine circulation will put your message in front of new buyers without the delay of the traditional controlled circulation process. Active Audience is powered by our new Audience Data Studio, which proactively locates high-value contacts as they enter the market.

  • A dynamic segment of our circulation, continuously updated and comprising up to 30% of our magazine mailing list. The balance of our subscribers will remain traditional qualified, "direct request."

  • New PACK EXPO attendees. These engaged end-users will see your products immediately, as we begin to convert them to direct request subscribers.

  • Professionals in "hot" market segments. We'll get your products in front of industry newcomers like e-commerce, cannabis, craft brewers and more, when they most need your solutions.

  • Verified end-users. We use our proprietary algorithm to scrub our lists, and ensure your message is reaching the right people.

SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGNS

Send My Ad

Advertisers love the Send My Ad platform used to upload materials!

"[Send My Ad] was easy to use and I actually prefer it over emailing out the content. I felt better having control over the upload/approval and that I don’t need to follow up to make sure emails were not overlooked... I knew when I clicked “approve” that all was submitted properly and I could check it off my list."

"I like the ad sizes tab a lot.  Useful and great to have the InDesign template available."
