INTRODUCTION
South County Healthy Living
(SCHL) is published by Triple 3 Marketing (T3M). Our popular magazine and companion website helps our advertisers promote their business and sell their services and products throughout the region. Consistent advertising in either or both of our magazines promotes your business brand (services and products) with potential customers, clients and patients, depending on the nature of your business.

We hand deliver copies of each edition to more than 150 plus businesses in Venice, North Port, Wellen Park / West Villages, Nokomis, Osprey, and parts of Port Charlotte. That includes our advertisers, coffee shops, ice cream shops, select retail businesses, select restaurants, select car dealerships, select salons, waiting rooms, and many other locations. Good pick up locations include the Venice Farmers Market on Saturdays, Mission Organic Cafe, Anita’s Restaurant, Max’s Table Restaurant, the local public libraries, Venice Art Center, North Port Art Center, and many other locations.

We also deliver copies to top realty companies that manage property rentals. This helps us showcase our advertisers to seasonal visitors, tourists and future residents. We also include a digital flipbook version of our prior three editions on our website to reach online readers. We use Instagram to promote advertisers at no additional cost.

Englewood Healthy Living (EHL): We also publish Englewood Healthy Living with 125 plus drop off locations in Englewood, Boca Grande, Manasota Key, Placida, and other areas on the Cape Haze Peninsula. Most of our advertisers are featured in both magazines since they target different communities. Learn more.

UNIQUE FEATURES:
Our mini-magazine format is popular with adult readers and especially women. The convenient size makes SCHL easier to carry, share and display compared to full size magazines. Few topics interest adults more than their health and wellness. Every edition of SCHL features interviews with various advertisers. We also feature 27-30 news briefs in each edition mostly focused on our advertisers. We post interviews featured in our magazine on the Featured Content page of our website at no additional cost. Many of our postings are featured with Google and other search engines.

NOTES REGARDING AD RATES AND AD DESIGN:
All first time display ads must be purchased prior to going to press either by a check payable to Triple 3 Marketing or through PayPal.
The 4X discounted rate requires your ad appearing in four consecutive editions. You do not need to pay for all four ads in advance.
We invoice advertisers at least 2-3 weeks prior to going to press.
Advertisers agreeing to the 4X discounted rate who do not display their ad in the 4 consecutive editions will be billed for the difference between the single issue rate and 4X discounted rate.
Ad rates are for camera ready display ads.
We can design your ad for a one-time fee. The fee range is $30 and $45 depending on the time involved.
We design most of new display ads. We accept camera-ready ads, but they must fit our design specifications.
We will provide you with an ad proof for your review and approval. Only client-approved ads are featured.
Future ad changes on existing ads are free if its a simple update such as a new telephone number or a new website URL. Ad changes on existing ads with more changes can cost between $15 and $30 depending on how much time it takes to make the changes.
We can increase the rates for ads at any time, but new rates do not go in effect for current advertisers until their ad comes up for renewal.
