Advertising Close is approaching. Opportunities to reach 150,000 readers nationwide who are passionate about Louisiana cooking and culture are red hot.
Louisiana Cookin’ Advertising Sales Manager Liz Ferguson has had a heck of a time since Katrina hit. She evacuated to Houston with her boyfriend and his two cats. Shortly, thereafter, of course, she had to evacuate Houston due to Rita. Like all great sales people, she kept an incredibly positive attitude and has been focusing on solutions, and not the challenges she’s encountered. Liz also knows that for some of her advertisers, being in the next issue isn’t top on their list of priorities.
At Hammock, we’ve offered to help her get the advertising message out, as it is evolving, in hopes that we can help her generate a couple of extra pages in the last week leading up to the close of the November/December issue. In this case, we are seeking marketers or agencies out there who control dollars for accounts and who see the opportunity to reach a wonderful audience of readers who are passionate about Louisiana cooking.
Now, more than ever, the audience will be engaged in this magazine. When this issue shows up in their mailbox, I’d stake a lunch at a reopened Lousiana restaurant of your choice that it will be devoured. We are working to help this business Keep Cookin’ and are seeing an uptick in subscriptions thanks to this blog.
Here’s the link to pdfs of the media kits, and promotions customized for Cajun & Creole restaurants, marketers of grilling and cooking products, and anyone who wants to be in front of people who are passionate about cooking and Louisiana.
