Advertising on Gauge Magazine
Gauge Magazine Is The Top Automotive Site On The Internet.
The Birth of GaugeMagazine.com, January 1999 the first issue released. This was the beginning of the new world, most companies were skeptical and in denial that the internet would ever be a part of the worlds daily routine. By 2000 several companies, fortune 500’s and small businesses were all on the same path. Then the internet crash from the Super Bowl XXXIV (January 2000), advertisers were dissatisfied with the mediocre results of their ROI on advertising dollars. GaugeMagazine.com was not discouraged and as evolutionary as the Internet is, we have continued to meet the needs and requirements to bring new viewers and entertain our long time followers to our site each and every day. In November 2010 we again moved the digital media dial and released the first edition of GaugeMagazine.com in a digital flip book. The internet is always evolving, as well as users knowledge and unlimited resources change at a rapid pace. These savvy internet users with computers in their pockets adapt easily, thus we at Gauge have to keep up with them. GaugeMagazine.com has withstood the test of time and we will continue to evolve with the internet users now and in the future.
Traditional Magazine vs. Digital Magazine
Traditional print publishers are great, but are they really putting your buyers at your front door? Or are they just giving the buyers the information to search your competitors with on Google? The idea that you have to fire up a computer to see a picture of your car or read information is gone, the smart phones and tablets are taking over, is your company prepared? There are over 500 digital book and magazine stores online today and they are growing rapidly, with thousands of copies getting downloaded daily. Schools are switching their curriculum to all be on computers or tablets, state funded schools are using social networking to keep the parents involved, there’s no more letters from teachers, and they email you or text you. GaugeMagazine.com has known this and we want to take variants of your traditional marketing and intertwine them into a digital interactive media network. When readers view our digital magazine and see your ad, they have to use one button and we have them delivered to your front door, via your website. The advertisement you have stays imbedded in our digital magazine forever. The back issues stay published on our main page and are advertised to readers every time they view our digital flipbook from our site.
Who are our Readers?
Traditional print publishers, what is traditional in 2016? Is Traditional print even out there, it is and we applaud it; even subscribe to some publications. However, when we ask ourselves why?, I’m not sure we have a great answer and we definitely see the difference in our children. If you ask any 13-18 year old why they have a printed magazine, they would more than like state, “So and So bought me the subscription.” The youth are much more intelligent than any of us are willing to admit. They are growing up in a fast paced world, in a world where time is money and if they are going to give something more than 30 seconds it better have sustained entertainment or enrichment for themselves. Along with their intelligence they are very self-centered. Which this isn’t necessarily a bad-thing; however, it is something Gauge Magazine strives to capture. We want our viewers to spend time reading through our magazine and they are. We also want those viewers to enjoy the products we enjoy. Lastly, we want these products easily found. How many times have you googled something you have seen in a printed publication only to find it is not what you meant to google or even worse it is never something you should have viewed on your work pc? When readers view our digital magazine and see your ad, they have to use one click and we have them delivered to your front door, via your website. The advertisement you have stays imbedded in our digital magazine forever. The back issues stay published on our main page and are advertised to readers every time they view our digital flipbook from our site.
