On the left side of the page, under “Search by Media Type,” select “Consumer Magazine Media.”

Select any option under “Classifications” and click on it. Now, choose any one of the magazines in that class. Which magazine did you choose?

  1. What is the price of a 1-page, 4-color ad in the magazine that you chose? (use 1 ti –which stands for a “1 time purchase” of an ad).  You will find this by clicking on the RATES & POLICIES tab. 
  2. What is the Total Circulation (which means the number of issues sold) of the magazine you chose?  You will find this by clicking on the CIRCULATION tab.  Please use the TOTAL Circulation if possible.
  3. Now, you are going to look up a specific magazine:  Family Circle (you can do a keyword search to find this – but be sure to use (CONSUMER MAGAZINE).  What is the cost for a full page color rate (1 ti.) in Family Circle?
