News: Creative COW Magazine Passes 5 Year Mark
(Los Angeles, California--February 7, 2011) Creative COW Magazine, the leading trade publication for media production professionals in film, broadcast, and related fields, has just issued its 5th Anniversary edition in December 2010. With its paid circulation continuing to rise, this magazine has defied the negative business trends in the trade publishing industry.
Creative COW (Communities of the World) Magazine is published by Creative COW, LLC, and is the print voice of CreativeCOW.net, which is the peer-to-peer resource for media production professionals, serving more than 1.5 creative professionals every month.
After its first 5 years, the entertainment technology magazine with the whimsical name is setting benchmarks in both circulation and advertising. Creative COW Magazine is eclipsing its competitors and is now decisively the media production community’s largest and most influential B-to-B magazine.
Within its trade category, Creative COW is ranked 1st with a circulation of 118,000, according to Vocus, a leading media contacts data base and analytics company. Other lower ranked publications include DV, American Cinematographer, Broadcast Engineering, Videography, Studio Daily, Post, Markee and HD Video Pro.
“We have found that the secret to succeeding in print is to create magazines that people want to read,” remarked Ronald Lindeboom, Publisher of Creative COW Magazine, and CEO of Creative COW, LLC. “We gain these insights from listening to the 1.5 million visitors who pass through CreativeCOW.net every month. We also draw our writers from within this community. Rather than rely on professional writers, Creative COW Magazine provides a platform for creative professionals to talk about the work that they are doing.”
