Natural Awakenings can only be successful if our wonderful and informative niche publication reaches receptive and like-minded readers. This is why distribution is one of the most important elements of our business model.
Demand “Pull” Distribution
There are many ways to distribute free publications. We have determined that the best way to reach our niche audience of readers is to make our magazine available at the places our readers frequent including where they shop, study, exercise, work and take care of their medical needs.
Because of the way we distribute our magazine, each of our readers makes an active choice to pick up our publication – we do not “push” our magazine out to mailboxes or deliver them to doorstops and count those mailboxes and addresses as “readers,” like many print publications do. We only count as readers the people in our community who actively pick our magazine up and take it home.
