Concrete Facts Advertising
Recently updated for 2013-2014
This year, ‘Concrete Facts’ leaves behind its history as a member benefit and target market resource. With volume 21, we will transition to an industry voice. The new mission statement of the CFA is “to support the cast-in-place contractor as the voice and recognized authority for the residential concrete industry.”
With this new mission, our goal is to reach every practicing foundation contractor in North America. This painstaking process is underway with a qualified readership projected already for 7,000+. Each magazine in print will be read by an average of 3-5 people in a company directly and left for more to read on office coffee tables.
Geographically, the print edition readers are located throughout the continental U.S., Alaska and Canada.
Online, recognized readership has steadily grown since introducing this option at the beginning of 2008. Beginning this Spring, we launched a new magazine presence on our website and no longer host online editions in antiquated pdf books. Each article of significance will be maintained for the history of our industry presence. Current advertisers will be maintained in a presence for this year complimentary with your paid ad commitment. It stands to be a significant benefit to your company and products.
If you want to reach the concrete foundation industry, advertise in ‘Concrete Facts’. Give us a call, and we’ll put together a package
that meets your specific needs. This brochure provides all of the information you need to begin making this decision but we
remain dedicated to supporting this primary membership benefit and outreach of this Association.
Please note: Advertising in Concrete Facts is limited to CFA members only.
