Target Market and Readership
We try to guarantee our advertisers their money’s worth by taking the publication to the people whom we feel will influence decisions and make sure that the sales volumes of products and services advertised are enhanced substantially.
A larger part of our target market comprise decision makers such as management staff of various organizations in the region, diplomats, businessmen, industrialists, corporate and individual heads, relevant ministries (Ministers, Permanent Secretaries, Under Secretaries etc), NGOs, higher learning institutions, medical sector, banking sector, aviation industry, research institutions and tourism industry.
No publication is ever left to waste, if they are not bought or subscribed; we use them in our marketing department for prospecting so that at the end of our distribution/circulation we are able to establish the impact and feedback.
We believe the impact the publication creates in the market is significant and long lasting. This is explained as follows, most of our readers are decision makers, who we know are opinion leaders, once the publication has created a positive impact among them we believe that this trickles down to their followers especially with consumer goods. Consumer behavior is such that buyers regard goods bought by their superiors as the best. We are confident that doing business with us will be the beginning of a long and mutually rewarding business relationship.
The Commerce & Industry magazine print run per edition is 18, 756.
We believe that each and every copy is seen by at least eight to twelve people within the corporate sector since the publication’s shelf life is one month. The above translates to above 200, 000 serious readers monthly.
Given the Publication’s in-depth exhaustive content in business reporting, we feel our subscribers have immense interest in the Business, economics and commercial news which is evidenced by the fact that quite a substantial amount of copies are bought by advertisers for their targeted marketing initiatives.
We have a large clientele base that advertises our magazine for both financial as well as for social marketing campaigns. The latter includes both Government establishments and nongovernmental organizations.
In order to reach a wide and diverse readership, other copies are distributed throughout the region at trade fairs, industrial exhibitions etc. Also after successful supplement, most companies buy copies to take to their customers/prospects for their own marketing purposes.
