RMM Magazine

rmm-logo-4.png

  

Our world has changed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Keeping each other safe has necessitated distancing and has hampered our ability to gather, commune, share information, and communicate in ways we only can in person. It may have become more difficult for you to bless others with information about your ministry, organization, or product. If this is the case for you, we have a solution!

During a year, Resource Ministry Magazine (RMM) reaches a potential readership of about 85,000 individuals including over 30,000 active Adventist homes, about 5,000 churches, companies, and home fellowships; 700+ NAD, Union, and Conference administrative personnel, along with all Adventist PK-12 schools and higher education, hospitals, libraries, media centers, Adventist businesses, and over 150 various church organizations — all at the cost of about 1 cent per reader

Generate leads and gain traffic on your website with an eye-catching spread that will garner attention from readers interested in your offer. Your message can be seen for just pennies per prospect, making a partnership with us a low-cost, high-quality choice. At low prices, your investment includes all printing and mailing expenses.

 

Seventh-day Adventists are known
worldwide for their interest in:

  • The Bible and Biblical studies
  • Generosity in support of worthwhile projects
  • Diet, health, natural healing, and medical work

Pros and Cons

 Pros: You control mail dates, all advertising in your piece, and can target specific groups/areas easily.

Cons: Significant investment, and requires professional outsourcing.
 Pros: Face-to-face contact and specific to an area or organization.

Cons: Highest cost per contact and close contact with large groups.
 Pros: High saturation of specific areas and frequent mail dates available.

Cons: Approval process may be complex, there are eight unions in the USA to contact, and mailed to active and inactive members.

 Pros: Mid-range saturation across the USA, bi-yearly mail dates. Only active members being mailed to―mailed each year to all SDA Churches, Businesses owners and managers, Schools, Hospitals, Media Centers, and top fourteen Leadership positions in Conferences/Unions/NAD.


Cons: NONE

1 Due to COVID-19, many conventions have been limited or closed and  many events has seen a reduction in attendance.

Design FAQ

HOW SHOULD I WRITE MY HEADLINE?
Here's your first, and often only, chance to grab the prospect. So remember the "3 B's"-make your headline Bold, Brief, and Benefit-oriented. Use your headline to flag a particular audience, such as "Tools for Members" or "Science Teachers." If you offer a free brochure with the headline "Three foods to reduce your blood pressure in ONE week," it will produce leads for people with high blood pressure―great for health reconditioning centers.

ARE PHOTOS OR ARTWORK IMPORTANT?
Even a simple line drawing can capture attention. Photos and illustrations harmonizing with the product and headline will likely lift the response.

HOW SHOULD I WRITE MY COPY?
Rule number one: Get right to the point. With limited space, what you say is more critical in your placement display than in virtually any other type of advertising. Include features and benefits of prime importance to the prospect, and offer additional details that can be sent to them by request in exchange for their address or email. Having the address or email now allows you to contact them twice or three times with follow-up letters/emails.

SHOULD I WRITE A CLOSING?
Yes! Tell the prospect exactly what to do and how to do it. Giving the reader an action keeps your leads active by not using vague or confusing response instructions.

 

Policy

The publisher reserves the right to refuse any advertisement. Agency/client are jointly liable for payment on orders received and accepted. All orders are subject to the terms of the rate card. Cancellations after the closing date are not acceptable. The publisher requires prepayment and cannot guarantee the results or outcomes of this mailing.

  • Ads should not make extravagant claims of superiority or use excessive, descriptive adjectives.
  • Ads for investment opportunities, except those relating to the funds and trust services of the Adventist denominations' organizations and institutions, will not be accepted.
  • The publisher will not accept Multi-level marketing ads.
  • Personal ads, such as those from individuals seeking marriage partners, etc., are not published.
  • The publisher will not accept ads for permanent placement or adoption of children other than from denominationally-owned agencies.
  • ASI (Adventist-Laymen's Services & Industries) approved members may be exceptions to the above.
