Thirty years ago, Herb Krugman, the father of effective ad frequency, said: "Advertising needs frequency, because, like a product sitting on the shelf, you never know when the consumer is going to be looking for you, so you have to rent the shelf-space all the time."
“A man who stops advertising to save money is like a man who stops a clock to save time.” – Henry Ford

As your marketing partner, our business is promoting your business. We are successful when you are successful!
Natural Awakenings and NaturalWestMichigan.com provide numerous ways to build your business or promote your event.
A consistent display ad is the hallmark of effective print and web-based advertising.
Nothing beats a well-designed ad that reaches your potential clientele. Display ads feature your business prominently next to cutting edge information or events and editorial on natural methods of health, healing, inner growth and earth friendly living. Your display ad works synergistically with editorial, calendar events, the natural directory and news briefs. Our web-banner advertisers benefit, too, as their ads appear on every page that our visitors view.
Each time your ad is in the magazine or online it gets another look or click - and the more looks or clicks it gets, the better your advertising works. This is compounded month, after month, after month, which is why we recommend 12-month commitments. Not only will you save money, your advertising will be more effective.
