Longing For Home Bed and Breakfast, began advertising with Southern Family early in 2009, just as we opened for business. Being highlighted as a featured home early that year got us off to a great start.  That article, along with the great ads that ran throughout the year without question, quickly brought a good number of new guest reservations and enticed at least three North Alabama brides to select Longing For Home for their wedding venue. As 2011 began, Southern Family highlighted Longing For Home as a great wedding venue in the Jan/Feb Bridal issue.  We again see an increase in calls, reservations as well as increased interest in the bed & breakfast and the surrounding 15-wooded acres for special events and weddings. For print advertising, Southern Family gives us the best return on our  dollar and is one of only two magazines we will be advertising in this year.

Griffin Mobility has advertised with Southern Family Magazine since Summer 2008.  As a specialty business, we feel that SFM gives us several positive benefits.  The distribution is broad, covering several counties throughout the Tennessee Valley, and the points of distribution offer us, as advertisers, a "captive audience" in the waiting areas of salons, doctor & dentist offices, etc.  Customers call us, specifically mentioning our ad, and on several occassions, we have had customers walk into our business with the magazine in-hand.  Over the last few years, we have tried a couple of other magazines and print advertising, but nothing has given us the breadth of distribution and results that we have gotten from SFM.

Since Bubble Gum & Blue Jeans started advertising in Southern Family Magazine, my store has seen a huge increase in out of town visits, phone calls, and e-mails!  I am amazed at how many responses I get from this advertisement!  I am constantly hearing that my customers see us in this magazine. We have been with Southern Family Magazine since March of 2010 and it is by far my best form of advertising!
