small manufacturers and Z scale dealers who do not advertise their offerings.
Advertising is extremely important. Consistent advertising keeps your companies
name and offerings in front of consumers. It creates demand and allows consumers
to find your products and contact information.
For the Z scale community, there are a few options to advertise. Ztrack
reaches over 1,700 Z scalers in 40 countries. The rates are extremely economical
compared to other publication. For as little as $38.00 an issue, one can run a
black and white business card ad. To run the same ad in color is only $110.00
per issue. There are no minimums and clients can run one time, or every issue.
Another option for Ztrack is inserts. Clients can send us post cards, flyers
or even catalogs and we will insert this in Ztrack. This is an incredible way
to get your information out at a rate far less expensive than direct mailing.
Ztrack is also pushing web advertising. We are now accepting advertising on
Ztrack Center. Ztrack has partnered with Z Central Station to sell ads onto
their web page. Again, this is a very economical way to advertise, plus we offer
discounts for running both print ads and web ads.
Another option is to sponsor the Coffee Break on John Cubbin's Ztrains.com
site. This very popular feature is updated weekly and has a huge following.
Of course, one can also make announcements on the forums. We do this with all
of our new products. But we find that the most responses continue to come
from exposure in Ztrack with support of online announcements and web advertising.
To learn more about advertising and advertising options, I recommend
contacting Deane Shepard. Deane can go over rates, options and programs to get your
name and products in front of the Z community at large. Visit:
