EASTside Magazine’s Advertising Mission

Print magazine advertising inspires action, according to MPA Magazine Media Factbook 2015. EASTside Magazine advertising works with you and for you. We reach a targeted audience of involved, educated, active consumers with disposable income who take action based on what they read. As the most concentric community magazine in Austin’s eastern region, EASTside’s loyal and diverse readership responds to the ads they see published as we become their trusted community guide.

Our team will work with you to create the exact ad you envision to endorse your business in the most creative and effective manner. EASTside Magazine does not charge for ad design when you contract with us because we feel all businesses, big and small, should have the same opportunity to publish the most eye-catching, professional and successful ad possible.

EASTside Magazine believes that effective advertising must be flexible advertising, the ability to stay fresh and fashionable in the eye’s of your target audience is essential. That’s why each issue you have the option to revise your ad or publish a new one. EASTside’s team desires to make our advertiser’s be known as the best this community has to offer.

“It’s good to partner with a magazine that has the same beliefs, concerns and connections to the community. It feels like more than just an advertisement in a magazine. It feels like a way to stay in tune with our neighbors and surrounding businesses.” – Scott Ziskovsky // Flyrite Chicken & Beer

“Eastside Magazine has brought us traffic from people who live and play in East Austin.  We have had people who drive directly from a restaurant like the Omelettry after seeing our ad or come in and point to the magazine in our office and cite it as their way of knowing we are here.  The great content and photography don’t hurt either!  It has been a great source of name recognition.” – Ann Rayborn // InTown Homes

“Prime Pet partnered with EASTside Magazine several months ago because of the magazine’s creative, attentive, and easy to work with staff.  We also really liked the dedication to this side of town and the opportunity to reach out to friends and neighbors we haven’t had the chance to meet as of yet. We have been very happy with the collaborative approach taken by EASTside and our business is reaching the exact market that we would like to reach.” – Burton Cleveland // Prime Pet

“During ACL last year, a couple flew into town from Atlanta, stopped at an east Austin pub for a drink, and picked up EASTside magazine.  They saw my ad, and after their drink drove straight to my studio and spent several hundred dollars on journals for themselves and friends back home. That was my first experience with advertising! I have continued with EASTside every issue since then, and am thrilled with the response! I’ve been a part of the East Austin artistic community for 14 years now, but I have never advertised.  I was apprehensive about the whole thing, but Will made the process so easy. I ended up with a beautiful ad, and have had such a great response that I have continued with it every issue since that first one! I LOVE this magazine!” –  Mychal Iona // Iona Handcrafted Books
