Why Magazines Should Be a Part of Your Marketing Plan:

1. Reach "High Value‟ Consumers-Magazine readers are better educated, have higher purchasing power and watch less TV --they deliver the hardest to reach and most influential of opinion leaders.

2. Bonus Impressions-The average magazine page is viewed 1.7 times, providing more impressions per ad than newspapers or TV. These bonus exposures increase a brand‘s opportunity to be seen when the consumer is ready-to-buy.

DoYouKnow

We always want to know about our LKN community! These are recurring features; see how many LKN people you could recommend.

Do you know a…

Lake Norman Woman Military Veteran

May14CoverIn various features, we honor and remember our LKN women military veterans or active military. If you know an LKN Woman who served, we want to know her, too!

Woman on the Move

We want to know!

A WOTM has just moved into the LKN community, earned a new certificate or degree, or received a promotion or award…something like that.

Send us the WOTM’s name, where she works and her title, her email address, and in 1-3 sentences, tell us the news. WOTM entries are not advertisements. We will not include “for more information.”  As Dana likes to say, “Just the facts, Ma’am.”

If you think you know a WOTM but aren’t sure, assume she is! Send us her information.

Fantastic Hubby

We celebrate the guys, too! Email us and tell us why your husband is fantastic. We feature these great guys in our February issue, but the sooner we know about him, the better!

Unique Family

These days, the definition of family has evolved. Throughout the year, and particularly in September, we like to share family stories. So, whatever yours looks like–if it works, shout it out! Of course, if you know another successful LKN family, who just happens to be slightly left–or right–of center, we want to know about them, also!

A Good Team

Work teams of mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, granddaughter, aunts, all relations!

Incredible Mom

Enough said!

Amazing Girl

We ask school and community leaders for recommendations, but if you know an outstanding LKN girl, age 10-18, to nominate for our June issue, please do. Girls are selected by a committee, based on the details of the nomination (so be thorough! We need a little more than “excellent grades,” please.). Include her parental contact information, if possible.

If you think you know an amazing LKN girl but aren’t sure, assume she is! Send us her information. But we’d like her parental contact info, too, please.

Survivor

We love to tell the survivor and success stories of women who’ve triumphed over domestic violence, breast cancer (any cancers), rape, and other injuries and situations. Tell us with whom we should talk; tell us whose voice should be the one to convince other LKN Women they are survivors, too!

Woman of Will

This one is a little more involved, but don’t shy away. Each December we have a Woman of Will Awards Luncheon. If you know a woman who qualifies (in your opinion is just fine!), please nominate her today. You do need to formally nominate her. If you’re not ready to complete the application, go ahead and send us an email and let us know. We can nag you to complete your nomination by the due date.

Nominate a Woman of Will

Story Idea

Bring it on! Tell us whom you believe would make a fantastic LKNW feature and why, in 100 words or fewer. Please include contact information. We may not reply to every recommendation, but we will read them.

*Any story idea sent in to us is considered our property. You are giving it to us.

Submission Guidelines

Got a calendar item?

If we can’t get it in print, we can still help you promote it.

Help Us Help You (to get your event noticed)!

Our Facebook wall is for timely, positive announcements only, relevant to the LKNWoman community and occasional in use. This is not the place to advertise your yard sale or vent some community grief. Also, please no weekly or recurring specials.

If you want us to promote something, please do the following.

  1. Send us an email with “calendar post” in the subject line.
  2. In the email, write 1-3 sentences about your event: what, why, where, when, and who.
  3. We can’t post .pdf files, so please don’t ask.
  4. If you want to drive people to your website, you must include your link within your 1-3 sentences.
  5. We cannot post press releases or lengthy posts, just 1-3 sentences with the facts, please.
  6. Please do not send us your press release and ask us to “pick out” what we want to use.
  7. We will try to make posts but can’t promise.
  8. Posts to our wall does not mean that LKNW supports or condones the event.

Lake Norman Woman Magazine has the right to delete any wall posts for any reason.
