WE HAVE THE BEST
? They consume! Like all hard core music fans, fRoots readers are still buying dozens of CDs a year.
? They respond! 95% of fRoots readers buy CDs and 72% go to live events as a result of reading about them in fRoots.
? They're everywhere! Most do their main buying online, and 40% are outside the UK. If you're an overseas label, you don't need a UK distributor.
WHY?PRINT STILL MATTERS!
? Quality print magazines are enjoying a rennaissance, the preferred tangible way to read, enjoy, assimilate and store in-depth writing, photography and information. Digital remains a useful addition but not a replacement for our serious music addicts.
? Whilst on-line advertisers are increasingly up against Ad blockers and fears of fraud, nobody can invent an Ad blocker for print advertising!
? With less and less mainstream media coverage for this music, fRoots remains the essential grass roots independent folk, roots and world music guide - more than ever the main focal point, filter and buzz creator in our community. You'll invariably read about it first in fRoots.
? fRoots is hugely more comprehensive than any other magazine in its field, always carrying more in-depth feature content, news, trusted reviews and original commissioned photography than its nearest competitor!
? Our maximum readership cross-over with any other music publication is only 29%. With fRoots you reach the long-term committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other magazine gets to.
? Not only do you gain all the
obvious benefits of print advertising, your much appreciated support helps
ensure the continuing existence of this major resource for our community. With
less and less mainstream media coverage for this music, fRoots remains the essential grass roots
independent folk, roots and world music guide.
OUR DIGITAL EDITION
? All fRoots print magazine subscribers also have free access to the digital editions.
? We have desktop, laptop, iOS and Android tablet and mobile phone versions.
? Access a sample desktop digital edition free of charge.
FREE NEWS LISTINGS
? We list information on November events in the news section of this issue, space permitting.
? News deadline: Friday 15th September.
