South County Healthy Living (SCHL) is published 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 helps our advertisers attract new customers, clients and patients, depending on the nature of their business. Inquires welcome at Randy@Triple3Marketing.com.
We hand deliver copies of each edition to more than 200 plus businesses in Venice, North Port, West Villages, Nokomis, and Osprey. That includes our advertisers, waiting rooms, coffee shops, ice cream shops, select retail businesses, select restaurants, select car dealerships, select salons, and many other high traffic locations. We also refill our counter top display holders regularly. Good pick up locations include the Venice Farmers Market, Island Organics, Cia Gelato, Seed to Table Vegan Eatery, Anita’s Restaurant, Max’s Table Restaurant, Cafe Bagel, The Breakfast Cottage, Richard’s Foodporium, Family Table, Shark’s Fish House, Olde World Restaurant, Big Olaf Ice Cream, the local public libraries, Venice Community Center, Venice Art Center, North Port Art Center, Venice Family YMCA, and many other locations.
We also make bulk deliveries 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 also use our social media networks to promote advertisers at no additional cost.
Englewood Healthy Living (EHL): We also publish Englewood Healthy Living with 150 plus drop off locations in Englewood, Boca Grande, Manasota Key, Placida, and other areas on the Cape Haze Peninsula. We have many 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 that support 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 rankings with major search engines including Google and Bing.

NOTES REGARDING AD RATES AND AD DESIGN:
All 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 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 rate and 4X discounted rate.
Ad rates are for camera ready display ads.
We can design your full page ad for $80 as a one-time fee. The one-time fee for designing a half or quarter page ad is $50.
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 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.
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.
