WHY ADVERTISE IN SAY MAGAZINE?
By supporting Say Magazine, you are joining a movement to inspire and empower Indigenous Peoples. Our mission is to inspire positive action and celebrate success.
Say Magazine represents a relevant and inclusive advertising avenue for your brand image. By weaving your story with our storytelling and contemporary content, it increases the chance of your content being read and acted upon. With no particular political or tribal affiliation, Say Magazine’s emphasis is on grassroots initiatives and everyday successes.
Say Magazine is the only national Indigenous magazine that continues its commitment to distribute in print and not only online. There are many people who still prefer the experience of reading a hard copy publication versus reading content on a screen. In addition, there are many instances of a digital divide that limit access to digital content. Say Magazine remains committed to serving this demographic.
“Consumer demand for magazine media remains strong, despite a popular narrative that often portrays print magazines as going the way of the dinosaur… Print magazines have consistently been strong ROI performers in advertiser-sponsored market mix models, even when used in conjunction with other media.”
—Scott McDonald Ph.D., Nomos Research & Columbia Business School (2016)
