"Specialty business magazines like Biz X are a valuable addition to your marketing plan if your customers are other businesses, or even if you sell directly to consumers. Getting the attention of your customer when they are reading a specialty magazine is easier than using mass media, which gives you too much spill. Make sure your message is what your customers want to hear, that your ad is big enough to tell a story so you can develop a relationship with your customer and place it where your customer is willing to engage with it. Biz X is a good choice."

Wendy Moore-MacQueen, author of Muddled, meager and messy Marketing performance repair manual for small business.
