We’ve just added a new section to the Fox Print and Creative Publishing website! By clicking here, you can see how different publishers utilize the flexibility of our pre-designed magazines, even to go so far as combining multiple titles into one publication! Take Lebanon, Missouri for example… they’ve combined Active Living and Inspire Health into a flip-flop magazine! Here’s how it looks in print (and here’s a non-flipped version of the same issue for readability on the web).

From introducing local content to changing the cover design, we’re always impressed with the ways our publishing partners use our magazine platform to truly represent their communities, and we’re extremely happy to help these same publishers fortify their profits and tailor them to the audiences they know best.

The interactive map is going to be changing drastically over time, as our flexibility not only covers design and content, but publishing schedules as well. We appreciate our publishers, and do our very best to ensure that they have everything they need to fill up every inch of ad space (no matter the page count) and keep their revenue streams strong and consistent! If you’re not already publishing with Fox, give us a ring at 877.329.0571 or email us at info@igofox.com!

Monthly Creative Meetings

During our monthly meetings here at Fox Creative Publishing we not only enjoy each other’s company but the coming together of creative minds provides a collaboration of all kinds of interesting articles. From Terrariums to Hypnotherapy as an alternative treatment, we covered three different publications in just a few hours.

One Particular Pulitzer Prize Winner

While looking through the 2017 Pulitzer Prize winners, we were especially heartened to see that the winner for “Distinguished Editorial Writing” went to a gentleman named Art Cullen… now, we don’t know Art personally, but we do know his paper has a circulation of 3,000.

The local newspaper for many (if not most smaller communities) is a window to the entire world. Seeing this award bestowed upon a person pushing journalism in his town of Storm Lake, IA (population 10,000) is absolutely amazing.

While we obviously commend every winner on the list, it’s great to see a writer of a publication similar to many of the ones we work with receive such a high honor. Brilliant and inspirational.

Thank you, newspapers.

A Thank You to Impact Newspapers

We walked into the office today and were greeted by some fantastic words from our publishing partner Kevin Williamson of Impact Newspapers (http://www.impact601.com)… our sales team member Pam received this and we had to share:

“IMPACT has been in business since 1976, and we’ve had great relationships with hundreds of local advertisers, in addition to mailing circulars for dozens of regional/national advertisers like Walmart, Lowe’s, Walgreen’s, CVS, Fred’s and others. Over the past few years as social media has altered the advertising landscape, we started looking for new ways to keep our local print revenue. We discovered that many advertisers were attracted to glossy print publications, so we produced a number of those in-house with limited success. Late in 2016, we made the decision to partner with Fox Print Services and publish Inspire Health Magazine, which is just one of their magazine products. The magazine is a quality piece, and our readers and advertisers really enjoy it. The Fox Print Services crew has been great to work with, and we at IMPACT are excited about generating new print revenue with this partnership. If you are looking for a new idea to increase revenue, and we all are, it could be beneficial for you to give Fox Print Services a little bit of your time to learn about what they offer.”

Looking for ways to better reach and expand your audience and advertisers? It’s our business to help you do just that. Give us a call at 877.329.0571 or contact us here:

No other company offers the plethora of tools catering to newspapers (of all circulation sizes) that we do.

Print Meets Digital Meets Print (and Repeat)

Having a printed publication, a digital counterpart, and a social media presence can allow you to create an ecosystem to ensure that your content is shared throughout your local community and beyond.

In a recently published article by one of our partners about the benefits of honey, we ended the piece by imploring people to visit and support their local beekeeper. The sentiments in that article were further expressed when an actual beekeeper took photos of the hard copy, letting others know that it was an article worth checking out:

BeeKeep1

As you can tell below, the original post was placed on Facebook and Instagram, catching the attention of several readers in the same area:

BeeKeep2

It’s obviously crucial that the article is available online, but the fact that a digital platform is being used to point people towards an article in its printed form cannot be ignored. The hard copy, the digital version of the article, and the social media presence (capable of sharing both) all compliment each other.

With Fox Print Service’s Digital Feeds, we can enhance your current website with regularly updated content, and you can use this in conjunction with your publication’s social media presence to organically grow your readership, all while serving ads and fortifying your own brand to the communities that you serve. It’s truly a win-win for your audience, advertisers, and your publication.

To learn more about how we can help you establish (or enhance) this type of information ecosystem for your company, be sure to contact your local Fox sales representative here, or call us now at 877.329.0571.

Happy Friday!
