INTRODUCTION
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 welcome at Randy@Triple3Marketing.com.

We hand deliver copies of each edition to more than 320 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, select car dealerships, select salons, and many other high traffic locations. We also refill our counter top display holders from November through June. We also deliver extra copies to the Venice Farmers Market, all of the centers with the Gulf Coast Medical Group, all of the local public libraries, Venice Community Center, Venice Art Center, North Port Art Center, Venice Family YMCA, and many other locations. We will be adding new drop off locations throughout 2020.

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 various 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 clients advertising 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 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 search engine rankings with Google and Bing.

AD SPECS FOR CAMERA READY ADS:
Although we design most of the new ads, here are the design specs for clients providing camera ready ads.
We accept PDF, TIF, JPG, or 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.
We’ll confirm via email if the camera ready ad meets our specs. Some ads are incorrectly sized and others have low resolution images.

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.
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 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. We accept camera-ready ads, but they must fit our design specifications noted above.
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.
