TV advertising is so expensive, and fleeting, as you struggle to break through the glut of 200+ cable/satellite channels and get noticed. The same is true when you advertise on radio, especially with satellite radio competing with local stations.

Newspaper advertising is likewise so expensive, plus it’s on smeary newsprint that’s thrown out with tomorrow’s trash. A magazine like Midwest Today, on the other hand, has articles that attract and hold reader attention. We are kept around, read, re-read and savored.

Also keep in mind you are missing an entire market segment when you only use local or statewide TV/radio or newspapers. That's because travelers do not know what local stations to tune in, and if they buy a newspaper at their hotel/motel, it's likely to be a national paper (like USA Today). YOU ARE NOT REACHING THIS IMPORTANT AUDIENCE OF UPSCALE TRAVELERS with your local/state media buys.

But Midwest Today can reach this important demographic of people with money who travel, who are seeking ideas and consumables to enrich their lives. That's because — besides mailing to subscribers — we also place copies directly in the rooms of numerous hotels/motels, where the copies (and your ads) are seen.

Magazines like Midwest Today also offer other distinct advantages. Consider the following:
