UPPERCASE magazine is a quality publication with a growing international audience. In past issues, we have had a small number of ads but not the time or resources to really explore this potential. Generating some additional revenue through ad pages would be of great assistance in covering the substantial costs of production.
The Advertising Manager would develop a successful and consistent base of advertisers which would include our past partners but, in particular, new contacts appreciative of our niche audience and design aesthetic. The ratio of content to ads will stay the same; more pages will be added as required.
• generate new advertising relationships
• communicate with current advertising clients
• coordinate ad artwork
• invoice advertisers
