it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas / the market guide

Are you humming to yourself now? I'll apologize now for putting the tune in your head for the rest of the day. But it's for good reason, and you can thank me later.

How many times have you heard it?


Last year, many of you were disappointed that you missed the opportunity to be included in our Market Guide which is part of the issue that releases pre-Holiday. To be sure that you are "in the know," we're sharing about it WAY ahead of time this year. 

We've had a lot of positive feedback on our Resource Guides which are for service based businesses. We thought it was only fair to  provide a space for product based businesses as well. And with last year's Market Guide being such a hit, we thought we should do it again. We're placing the next Market Guide in ISSUE 09 which releases 11/01/17...

faq's about the market guide /

1. What does the fee include? / The fee includes one item featured in the Market Guide inside ISSUE 09. Along with the photo of the item will be the name of the item, price of the item and source/website to obtain the item.

2. What is the deadline? / The deadline to reserve space for the Market Guide is 09/20/17.

3. Can I submit more than one item? / Yes, of course! Please fill out the form for each item you wish to feature. 

4. What do I do after I have submitted the form? / Technically, it's not an application, but rather a way to gather your information. You do not need to do anything. We will send you a confirmation of your listing and invoice to the email provided.

5. How long is the listing good for? / The listing will appear in ISSUE 09 which releases November 1, 2017 and will remain on newsstands through the beginning of January. Any remaining print stock of ISSUE 09 will continue to be sold (which includes the Market Guide) until they're sold out.

6. How is payment handled? / Once you've provided your information via the online form, we will send you an invoice where you are able to pay via credit card or paypal.

7. What dates will the issue that the Market Guide is in be available? / The Market Guide will appear in ISSUE 09 which will be released at November 1, 2017 and be on newsstands through mid-January. We will also be sending the Market Guide to all of our email subscribers on Thanksgiving as a way to promote you and your products for "the big weekend."

8. What if I'm not ready? Can I get in the next one? / We only feature the Market Guide once a year. If you're looking for something, consider product placement on our "featured finds" pages in issues that do not have a Market Guide.

9. How many people get the magazine? / We print over 4,200 copies and sell hundreds of digital copies to women all over the world. The magazine can be purchased on our site, found in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide and at several small shops across the country.

10. Want to see all of our numbers to convince you why this is a good idea ? / Check out our full media kit.

It's going to be so good. You don't want to miss this opportunity!  Deadline is 09/20/17.
