Everyday Matters Magazine is not so much "ad-driven." It is "content-driven."
Most publications like this have only about 25%-40% content and 60%-75% ads.

This magazine will have over 75% of it filled with excellent content and less than 25% ads.
This means that advertisers will have that many more eyeballs looking at their ads.

   Before embarking upon this ambitious project, I looked at different options to help maximize the 32 pages of the magazine. The ad sales made it possible to create the graphics, print the magazine and deliver 25,000 copies to each respective church -- so we had to make sure that we had enough room for the ads.
   Then I thought about including only perhaps 3/4 of the Carson interview, with the statement, "You have read just a part of the 45-minute interview with Dr. Carson. Want to read the entire interview? Go to EDMmag.com."
   Also, I figured out that we can get into the "Taking Care of Aging Parents" article about 4-5 paragraphs and then stop, with the question, "Want to read the rest of the article? Go to EDMmag.com."

   These two ideas have provided the following benefits:

 1. Gave us enough room to have everything else we want in 32 pages.
 2. Drives people to the website where there are advertiser coupons and

   One of my main goals is for this magazine to be a positive benefit for the advertisers so that they and others will be clamoring to get into the next issue.

   Most magazines have a ton of ads, with minimal content. Everyday Matters Magazine is content-driven -- with excellent, high-quality articles that have been selected for their felt-need approach to everyday issues.
   Plus, every copy is being distributed in a credible manner. That's a guarantee.

   Take a look at regular monthly magazines. Once the month of, let's say, October is over, those undistributed issues are thrown in the trash bin.

   Our magazine utilizes a different model. It will continue to be distributed until the last copy...even if it takes 18-24+ months to do so.
