Commercial Advertising Rates

Our ad rates are calculated on the basis of $40 per thousand page impressions per issue, a relatively inexpensive price for the publication’s unique and highly influential audience. In the world of Internet advertising, $40 per thousand page impressions is comparable to rates charged by financial planning and home gardening publications, and upscale national newspapers.

The cost of each advertising campaign is negotiable based on ad size, postion and frequency.
