ROI Proven for Retail Consumer Targets

“We have advocated numerous client positions with these retail campaigns, and all with great success. They’re also ideal for local agent support, for example.”
— Paul C. Kostial, President & CEO

Overview – Retail Consumer Targets

Magazine cover wrap marketing campaigns are engaged for a broad range of highly specific consumer targets supporting retailers, local insurance agents, automotive dealers, packaged goods, personal care (i.e. spas and salons), home furnishing, moms with kids, hospital specialties, and many many more.

According to MPA research, out-of-home magazine readership is now greater than in-home reading, which only makes these campaigns even more ideal. There's a great deal of additional research via MPA and other sources, which validate campaigns.


Consumer geo/demo retail-targeted campaigns enable any advertiser to reach any precise consumer target audience, to engage local and/or onsite interaction via public locations like doctors, dentists, veterinarians, spas, salons, barber shops, automotive dealers, auto service centers, fitness facilities and, even tattoo parlors – i.e. literally, any public waiting area can be chosen from our proprietary database of 1.5MM selected out-of-home locations, and more than 200+ location type options.

Your Audience Innovation Activation Director manages all the details for you, so we handle the heavy-lifting (for both client and/or agency partners), and simplicity delivered, due dates and steps are clear, and easy to follow – the process we're committed to 100%.
