The importance of printed media cannot be denied in the field of advertising. The corporate world depends a lot on the different forms of marketing, to get the desired revenue from the growth of sales associated with it. The importance of printed media has increased in spite of the advent of internet. The reason of the importance is the direct contact of the advertised stuff with the prospective customers.

Magazines are here to stay.
Magazines are slightly different form of media compared to the other varieties. People generally do not dispose off a magazine once it has been read. The magazine on the other hand is flipped through by most of the family members or the staffs if in office. The advertised stuff hence has the chance of being seen and noticed several people through one single magazine. This is what separates this form of advertising from the others and the popularity of magazine printing, has not dwindled in the times of online buying and selling. Magazines, unlike several newspapers has fought the internet and stood firm. There are several reasons for this. A magazine is generally specific in nature unlike the newspapers. People who read a specific magazine actually look towards a specific topic and remain loyal to the particular magazine much unlike the newspapers which deal in assortment of topics. The magazines have another advantage. They are generally published in a weekly, fortnightly or even monthly basis making the subscribers eager for the new issues. The quality of paper used is also very good. This makes the magazines bit expensive compared to the newspapers. Magazine printing has certain obstacles too. People venturing in this business need to have prior experience. The raw materials like paper, printing charges, colors and binding charges are generally very expensive to start with and unless the magazine starts having a regular customer base the costs can be real high. The charges of the different authors add up to the ever increasing costs. This and the ever increasing competition from the different magazines make it a very tough job to publish a magazine without prior experience.
