Thanks for considering advertising in The Village Magazine! How can we help you succeed?
VMI Media Group creates The VillageMagazine, a creative-culture lifestyle publication based out of downtown Bradenton’s Village of the Arts. Created four times a year(October, January, April & July), The Village Magazine is made available free of charge at over 300 locations across the Bradenton/Sarasota/Island area and St. Petersburg. Featured year round at places like the Hyatt Place in Sarasota and Courtyard Marriot in downtown Bradenton, The Village Magazine focuses on high traffic distribution points that capitalize on the customer flow coming through our doors every year. It balances the distribution to tourists hot spots with distribution to the places our year round locals frequent every year.
Using the voice of the Village of the Arts as our homebase, The Village Magazine is a hub for information and resources on artists, musicians and creatives, what they are doing and how to find them. As with it’s media partners, like TheBradentonTimes.com, SarasotaMusicScene.com, ThisWeekInSarasota.com and Anna Maria Island Radio 1700am, we focus on providing a highly localized publication and deliver it directly to those same local people. We personally deliver our magazine to ensure it gets to our distributors and gets into the customers hands. From there we do non-profit work and special events, both with our advertisers and other organizations, to increase the local appeal of the magazine and the likelihood of someone picking it up and seeing your ad. Our website is also provided as a tool for advertisers to post about themselves, list on our events calendar and more. And discounts are provided on our marketing & design services for advertisers. Advertising is more then just buying a piece of paper, its investing in your business and your community.
