Rough Notes is dedicating a special supplement within their September 2012 issue exclusively to Target Markets.  Our previous nine supplements were a tremendous success.  Last year's supplement was well over 150 pages.  Here's what you get:



  • A full-page feature article about your company and a full page, four-color advertisement within the Target Markets Special Section for $5,000.
  • A full-page professionally written profile of your company to run opposite ad.  
  • 500 color reprints of your ad and article for $1 each.   
  • FREE EXPANDED EXPOSURE - Your feature in the Target Markets Special Section is now seen by an additional 25,000 monthly readers of the Rough Notes magazine online.
  • EXCITING NEW ENHANCEMENT - For an additional $2,500, Rough Notes Digital Services will produce an exceptionally high quality business video promoting your company.  The video will significantly increase your audience and exposure.
