UTV ACTION IS THE LARGEST, FASTEST GROWING TITLE AIMED AT UTV ENTHUSIASTS.

Bound as a magazine within ATV Action, UTV Action reaches more than 150,000 enthusiastic readers each month. UTV owners enjoy customizing and modifying their sophisticated vehicles as much as driving them for pleasure and racing them, making UTV Action a key reference in their vehicle- and product-buying decisions. Responding to the steady growth in the UTV market, manufacturers continue to entice vehicle buyers with more new, exciting machines. Polaris has added new, special UTV models for performance and priceminded enthusiasts for 2011, and the popular Polaris RZR continues to be a performance benchmark and

the foundation for an aftermarket industry all its own. Can-Am unveiled an entire line of new, enthusiast-focused UTVs for 2011 to compete with exciting new offerings from Yamaha, Kawasaki, Arctic Cat, Honda and others. UTV buyers look to UTV Action for the facts on these vehicles and the best ways to modify them. Despite UTV Action’s massive circulation, the appeal of its outstanding photography and the credibility that comes with its association with ATV Action, it offers affordable rates that allow advertisers to reach this rich, growing market affordably, supported by respected, product-heavy editorial.

Page 29

As Road Bike Action enters its 5th year, we continue to be astonished by the incredible growth and support the magazine has received, by both the consumers at the newsstands, and the marketing directors within the industry. RBA covers the full gamut of the sport, from the sophisticated technology of Tour-winning bikes, to the trickle down bikes ridden by recreational riders. In every issue, readers get the latest bike and product tests, plus “how-to” articles, and fitness tips, in both print and Digital editions (and downloadable to your home computer or laptop, PLUS your iPhone, iPad, and other “e-readers”). As we begin 2011, we have made the move to deliver a new issue to the newsstand every 5 weeks! This will be a welcome relief to the marketing directors who have campaigns that call for a consistent, timely voice to deliver their advertising message. Of course, our dedication to the greatest sport in the world is also shared with you (and updated daily) on www.roadbikeaction.com, where real-time news and race results can be found, plus bonus, unique-to-the-web coverage, product features, tests and interviews that you won’t find anywhere else. And for those enthusiasts who just can’t get enough of the magazine, we can also be followed on both Facebook and Twitter. Along with the tremendous growth and reach of RBA, our editorial staff also continues to grow as well. We are honored to have the most influential technical and feature writers in the cycling world (including Bob Roll), led by Hall of Fame Journalist, Zapata Espinoza. We are committed to bringing the Global Cycling Market to our dedicated readers.

QUICK FACTS • Fastest-growing title in Hi-Torque’s 36-year history • Total Monthly readership of 187,124 • 74% plan to buy a new bike in 2011 • Readership will spend over $100 Million on Parts and accessories in 2011 28 www.roadbikeaction.com

FIVE WAYS TO SURE-FIRE EDITORIAL

companies you see the most work the hardest at getting information to the editors—it could just as easily be you! Below are all the details you’ll need to help your product be seen by hundreds of thousands of magazine readers.

started with a single product evaluation in a Hi-Torque magazine. Feel free with both the press release and a product to follow up by phone with the editors and advertising department.

• Products and Markets are Constantly Changing: Keep the editors abreast of what’s new with your product and how it addresses the problems that arise as the model year and seasons progress. A SPOTTER’S GUIDE ON WHERE TO GENERATE PUBLICITY

• Fire Off a Press Release: E-mail a high-resolution, 300 DPI or larger JPG and a text document explaining your product, the price, and where it is for sale. The e-mail addresses to the editors are below; send a copy to one of Hi-Torque’s Advertising Account Executives if you are working with one. You can also send it on a CD, which is a bit more permanent, archived, and may be used a number of times.

• Send in a Product for Testing: Our magazines are about products, so if you feel strongly about your product, send it to the appropriate magazine(s) for a long-term test. It’s not instantaneous, but hundreds of today’s successful companies 44 www.hi-torque.com

• Just Give Them a Call: Contact the editors by phone and ask about upcoming opportunities for your product or service. They are a wealth of information and are always looking for new products and angles to write about.

• Meet Them at the Track; They’re Always Testing: Contact the editors and offer to meet them at the track to showcase your product or test bike. After all, they have to fill a new magazine every month and need to find new products to write about.

• Dirt Wheels “Over the Bars”: short news pieces on events, race results, new models, new products, industry gossip, industry hirings; “Dialed In”: a questionand-answer column where readers ask questions and many times products are mentioned as solutions; “Hot Stuff”: standard four-color product/new product section. • Motocross Action “On the Mainjet”: industry news, products, events and results; “Dream Jobs”: profiles three people per month from three different companies; “What We Want”: a popular section with photos of cool stuff on the MXA must-have list; “Hit Parade”: standard product/new product section. “Ask the MXPerts”: reader question section where products are frequently shown as solutions to problems.

• Event Buyer’s Guides: Examples are Christmas Gift Guides, Winter Product Guide, and Indianapolis Trade Show highlights. • Project Motorcycle: All magazines feature both modified sport recreational vehicles and race machines. These fall into two categories:

1) Built by outside tuners, 2) Built by the editors of the magazine. We can give you a list of tuner names and contact information if you would like to approach them and become involved in their upcoming projects. Regarding our editors, we can encourage them to incorporate a system or product specific to the project when it’s applicable.

• Product Specific Buyer’s Guides: Buyers guides aimed at product categories, like oil, tee-shirts, motor parts. The list is endless.

• Websites: We can get both product-specific and eventspecific information up on the website for all magazines almost instantaneously. BEST FORMAT FOR PUBLICITY

Send CD: In addition to e-mail, which is best for instantaneous publicity, you should periodically send product images and information to each magazine on a CD. They all have storage libraries and use images multiple times from a given CD. The e-mail releases are much less permanent. www.hi-torque.com 45
