In business, there is no substitute for honesty and integrity. Althought the way of honesty is often not the easiest, it is always the best.
This is especially true in the publishing business and the media business overall. Advertisers invest their marketing dollars with magazines and websites based on their belief that ads placed by them will be seen by the right audience.
Advertisers place their trust in editors that the content of magazines and web products is the very best information available to the readers who have the capability of buying the advertised products. This is a matter of trust. Advertisers trust the magazines and websites to help in the accomplishment of the advertisers' goals.
To increase brand awareness and increase market share, advertisers must carefully select the vehicles of choice to carry their message. If a publication or web-based product is managed by individuals who have honesty and integrity, the advertiser can be assured that the products are represented properly by the media representatives. They can be confident that the information provided to them by the publisher is accurate and complete.
When making media selections, consider the integrity of the publication or web product. Ask questions and establish that trust.
