South County Healthy Living (EHL) is produced by Triple 3 Marketing (T3M). Our popular magazine and companion website helps our advertisers expand awareness about their services and products throughout the region. Consistent advertising in either or both of our magazines can help our advertisers attract new customers, clients and patients, depending on the nature of their business. Inquires are welcome by the publisher Randy Moore at Randy@Triple3Marketing.com.
We hand deliver copies of each edition to more than 350 businesses in Venice, North Port, West Villages, Nokomis, and Osprey. That includes our advertisers, many waiting rooms, coffee shops, ice cream shops, select retail businesses, select restaurants, and many other locations. We also refill our counter top display holders regularly from November through June featured at Venice Island Gallery & Gifts and Ciao Gelato on W. Venice Avenue, Island Organics on Miami Avenue, and Coffee Breeze next to the Saltwater Cafe just south of Laurel Road. We also deliver extra copies to the Venice Farmers Market, all of the centers with the Gulf Coast Medical Group, William H. Jervey, Jr. Public Library on Nokomis Ave., Francis T. Bourne Public Library on Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice Community Center, Venice Art Center, North Port Art Center, North Port Public Library, Venice Family YMCA, Off Trail Bike & Brew, Compass Property Management in the Mercato Building, Shannon Staub Public Library in North Port, Bagels & Deli, Gulf Breeze Art & Frame, and The Floridian Club of Florida. We will be adding many new drop off locations throughout 2019.
We also make bulk deliveries to top realty companies that manage property rentals. This helps us showcase our advertisers to seasonal visitors, other visitors and future residents. We also include a digital flipbook version of each edition on our website to reach more online readers. We also use our social media networks to promote advertisers.
Englewood Healthy Living (EHL): We also produce Englewood Healthy Living for locals and seasonal visitors in Englewood, Boca Grande, Manasota Key, Placida, and parts of Port Charlotte. We have many business clients advertising in both magazines since they target different communities. Learn more.
Our mini-magazine format is popular with adult readers and especially women. The convenient format makes SCHL easy to carry and share with other people. Few topics interest adults more than their health, wellness and quality of life. SCHL features profiles about many of our advertisers in the form of one-page interviews. We also feature news briefs in each edition mostly in support of our advertisers. We offer advertisers being interviewed in our magazine an opportunity to post the completed interview on the Featured Content page of our companion website. This provides an external link to enhance their search engine rankings. Please contact Randy Moore at Randy@Triple3Marketing.com for details.

AD SPECS FOR CAMERA READY ADS:
Although we design 95 percent of new ads, here are the specs for clients providing camera ready ads.
We prefer PDF files and we also accept TIF, JPG and EPS files.
We do not accept Microsoft Publisher files or documents.
Images must be no less than 300 dpi at the desired size of your ad.
Please use CMYK color mode and not RGB.
Please convert all text to outlines.
T3M will confirm if the camera ready ad meets our specs. Some camera ready ads are incorrectly sized and others have low resolution images.
Publisher reserves the right to decline any ad for any reason.
NOTES REGARDING AD RATES:
All display ads must be purchased prior to going to press either by a check payable to Triple 3 Marketing or through PayPal payable to Triple 3 Marketing, LLC.
The 4X Discounted Rate requires purchasing your ad to be displayed in four consecutive editions. You do not need to pay for all four ads in advance.
Triple 3 Marketing invoices advertisers at least one month prior to going to press. This timeline is shorter for new ads coming in closer to the deadline.
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 and the 4X rate.
Ad rates are for camera ready display ads.
Triple 3 Marketing can design your full or half page ad for $80 as a one-time fee. The one-time fee for designing a quarter page ad is $50.
We design most of new display ads in SCHL. We accept camera-ready ads, but they must fit our design specifications noted on this page.
Triple 3 Marketing will provide you with an ad proof for your review and approval. Only client-approved ads are featured in SCHL.
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 $40 depending on how much time it takes to make the changes.
A request by a current advertiser to design a new ad can cost between $50 and $80 depending on how much time it takes to design the new ad.
Triple 3 Marketing can increase the rates for ads at any time, but new rates do not go in effect for advertisers until their ad comes up for renewal.
