E-News ENEWS Imagemakers e-Newsletters are emailed bi-weekly to our entire database. This format is unique in that your advertising impressions do not end with the initial email release itself. Your advertisement will actually follow the e-News story to the Imagemakers magazine website landing page and will remain there for one month. This allows advertisers to potentially double their number of impressions from the eblast, while at the same time garnering impressions from general website traffic over a full month.
