This is a legacy page for magazine ads I've done over the years.

Please go to EdwardsCom.net for my newer site. Thank you



Magazine ads provide identity branding and/or directly promote the sales and services. Ads are a powerful promotional tool when utilized correctly, but are a expensive investment in your company and therefore should be developed with experienced professionals at the helm.

An ad usually has only "2 seconds to sell" - that is, a reader glances over the material for an average of two seconds before deciding if he/she should read further. Therefore, the offer, concept, imagery and text must work in a clear and complementary hierarchy in order to attract the target audience.

Edwards Communications provides complete advertising services: from helping decide WHERE the dollars are best spent, to concieving and producing the ads themselves. Call or email us for more information on how to invest this money more effectively.
