"We have no doubt about the support that we are getting from you and your magazine. We received 12 phone calls right after the first [business profile] appeared and made a couple of sales. We will be in touch soon about [another business profile]. Thanks for everything..."
Sherry and Jack Yaeck - Hot Health Systems
We started our advertising in the Senior Living magazine in June 2010 and we were amazed at the impact it had on our business! We were getting calls immediately from the first day the magazine was in circulation. Barry Risto and all the staff were extremely helpful and supportive with our advertisement, business profile and our "Ask A Pro" web editorials. I was especially impressed with the professionalism of this magazine. Barry and his staff really know what they are doing in terms of effective advertising and they truly care about the success of any business advertising in their magazine.
