Why Advertise In The AQ?
When I first began selling my autoharps commercially, few knew who I was. To get the word out, I built a website, went to the festivals and began a series of ads in the Autoharp Quarterly. Our ads are designed to be informative, sometimes humorous, but always to bring the name "d'Aigle Autoharps" to player's minds.
It's not about having a ratio of sales to ads run. I sell very few autoharps as a result of any particular ad, and I sell very few directly at festivals. It's all about name recognition. When musicians are thinking about their next autoharp purchase, I want them to know who I am, and to consider our products.
Whether you are a performer or a vendor, a builder or a technician, when folks recognize your name, they will consider what you have to offer.
The AQ is unique, in that our members are real music enthusiasts. Our readers attend the festivals, the concerts, and purchase the products related to the music and the instruments they love. I have never considered suspending our d'Aigleharp ad for even one issue.
What kind of ad do you need?
We offer a wide range of sizes to choose from, as well as placements to choose from. How much you should spend on an ad to be releveant to what you want out of it will depend on the nature of your business. We can help you decide if you like. It is not in our interest to over sell you, because we intend to be here for a long time to come and we need your continued support. Check out what others have done, and start (or continue) the journey of letting folks know who you are and what you have to offer.
