WHY ADVERTISE WITH EDIBLE HOUSTON?
The locavore community is growing. As deeply as we believe in celebrating the farmers, chefs, brewers, winemakers, and food artisans, we believe in growing your business. Our readers are informed, affluent and passionate consumers that place a premium on quality. They are champions of local businesses - and not just when it comes to food and drink. They are seeking an experience and a relationship with the businesses they patronize. By producing this award-winning, beautiful and informative magazine, we inspire readers to support the businesses that partner with us.
DO YOU ACCEPT ADVERTISING FROM NON-FOOD & DRINK-RELATED BUSINESSES?
Yes! But we do have a filter regarding our acceptance policy and we don’t accept just any ad. Our readers appreciate the quality of the advertising and we want to keep it that way. We curate ads that we think our readers will appreciate. We may consult with you about your design. We take extra care in determining ad placement and creating a special “rhythm” in the pages of the magazine. We run a perfect ad to editorial ratio. Your ad is just as important as any other component of the magazine.
DOES PRINT ADVERTISING WORK IN THE DIGITAL AGE?
In the words of New York Times media columnist David Carr: “Print continues to be a remarkable technology…with its own durable glories.” He’s not talking about newspapers, but the power of excellent niche print media. There is something almost magical in the juxtaposition of excellent typography, luscious photographs, the sheer tangibility of holding a well-designed artifact in your hands. You can’t get that experience from online, radio, TV, a tablet or smart-phone.
Edible Houston features outstanding photography and design, top-notch journalism, and is printed on a high quality matte stock and perfect bound. It’s something to cherish and return to again and again. And here’s the secret: This singular editorial package creates an unparalleled environment for your advertising. Edible Communities readers report that they pick up the magazine specifically to read our gorgeous ads. It is also a great resource for tourists. Celebrating what makes Houston so special is a huge part of our editorial mission.
By advertising with us, you are aligning yourself with the magazine, its mission, and are making a direction connection with like-minded readers. (And yes, our magazine also exists in the digital realm, available on our website and in a dynamic digital flip-book edition.)
