Expats Magazine - Celebrating Life Together - publishes positive, upbeat, community content, focusing on photos, lifestyle articles, backgrounds, talents, gifts and contributions of the expats who live and work there.


EXPATS MAGAZINE’s mission is to help build a stronger more cohesive expat community by introducing expats to one another. We will accomplish this by highlighting the similarities we all share as we journey to become integrated into Cuenca society and take our place as new and productive citizens.

EDITORIAL ADVERTISING Editorial Advertising is the art of communicating with your customers and prospects without selling. It is non-interruption marketing. Instead of pitching your products or services, you are delivering information that makes your buyer more intelligent. The essence of this content strategy is the belief that if we, as businesses, deliver consistent, ongoing valuable information to buyers, they ultimately reward us with their business and loyalty. CEM offers content marketing opportunities in the form of Ask the Expert, Business Review, Cover Story, and Center Spread articles.

Editorial Advertising Type 

Cover Story - 4 ad-free pages, plus front cover


Ask the Expert - Industry Exclusive 150-word answer relevant question with bio. Center Spread - Similar to Cover Story without cover and placed in the center of the magazine (2 pgs). Business Review- 500 word article review of your business with 2-3 pictures

• CHARTER ADVERTISING SPECIAL • Sign Up for a Quarter-page ad or larger or before June 15, 2015 and receive the following bonuses: • Sign a 6-month agreement and get 1 month FREE*. • Sign a 12-month agreement and get 3 months FREE*. • Sign a 18-month agreement and get 5 months FREE*. *To reduce your monthly payments, we divide the total number of months (including the free months) by the total agreement amount to get your adjusted monthly payment. For example, if you sign a 12-month agreement for a quarter-page ad, you will receive a total of 15 months worth of advertising. The total amount due would be $1560 ($130 x 12) ÷ 15 which would bring your monthly payment down from $130 to $104. In other words, by giving you 3 free months, we are spreading out 12 months of payments over a 15-months period of time. These discounts cannot be combined with any other discounts.

OUR PHILOSOPHY Our advertising philosophy is different from any other media you may have purchased in the past. We believe advertising should be an investment and NOT an expense. At the end of the day, you should be able to quantify your return on investment with any media. If you are not making money, like any investment, you shouldn’t be doing it. Unlike many people selling advertising, we are professionals. We have been selling advertising to small and medium sized businesses for over a quarter of a century. We are passionate about using our experience to help small and medium sized business owners grow. We are successful small business owners. We understand what it takes to successfully operate a small business on a day-to-day basis. We are all too familiar with the challenges business owners face in today’s ultra-competitive environment. Despite these challenges, we know how to help you succeed. We are not looking for advertisers. We are looking for long-term business partners. We believe that if we do our job right, you will experience a tremendous return on investment and you’ll want to work with us for a long period of time. In other words, we believe it is our job to help you grow. If we do our job well, you will want to do business with us for a long time. We believe in value. Our job does not end after we’ve placed your ad in our magazine. In fact, that is just the beginning. We believe that if we create a suite of goods and services that has so much value you will ask yourself “why wouldn’t I do this” versus “why would I do this”. We are committed to your success. We understand that the only way we can truly succeed is to help you succeed. We develop long-term sustainable strategies the ensure your advertising success. Over the years, we have helped tens of thousands of small and medium sized businesses realize advertising and marketing success.
