Top Reasons to Advertise Your Book in a National Magazine

Outskirts Press has announced the addition of low-cost, co-op advertising with Bookmarks Magazine to its full menu of author services.

Outskirts Press, an Inc. 5000 company and the fastest-growing self-publishing and book marketing firm, has long supported self-published authors with the tools they need to write, publish, publicize and distribute their works. The company now offers self-published authors low-cost advertising in Bookmarks Magazine, a subscription magazine targeted to lovers of literature.

Bookmarks provides its subscribers with synopses of a selection of the latest and greatest tomes in each full-color issue. Each ad page in Bookmarks spotlights several authors, who pay a fraction of the price of a full-page ad. The co-op approach provides authors a cost-effective way to showcase their work before a targeted audience.

Unlike newspaper, radio and traditional magazine marketing – which is expensive and reaches readers with a broad range of interests – Bookmarks ads exclusively reach individuals who are interested in literature and predisposed to purchasing.

There are several distinct advantages of co-op advertising through Bookmarks Magazine:

  1. Large-scale visibility. With a readership of 40,000 like-minded and affluent subscribers – a number that grows every day – Bookmarks Magazine reaches out to a huge audience of people already inclined to be interested in an author’s offerings..
  2. Targeted exposure. Bookmarks Magazine caters specifically to book buyers looking for the next great read. And, because readers actively subscribe to the magazine, ads reach a willing and receptive audience.
  3. Affordability. The Co-op Advertising Program provides authors with inexpensive access to high-profile ad space. Authors share a full-page ad that features 12 books, providing each author with highly visible advertising at a price that fits any marketing budget.
  4. Attractive, high-quality ad space. Book ads include a full-color book-cover image, synopsis, ISBN, retail price and ordering information – everything buyers need to make a decision and a speedy purchase.
