Think of how often your client will be reminded of you and your valuable service.The Magazine Gift Program provides up to 13 "touch-points" annually. Since its launch in February of 2001, Magazine Gift Program has proven to be EFFECTIVE, AFFORDABLE and EASY TO USE!

2. How does the Magazine Gift Program help me in my business?

First, the program "thanks" your client and communicates that you appreciate their business and relationship. Further, it asks for referrals and keeps your name and phone number "up front and top of mind".

Each issue of your personalized gift subscription sent to an individual recipient is read by an average of 4 readers per copy.*

Each issue sent as a public placement is read by an average of 600 readers per month.**

4. What does the magazine label look like?

You may enter a "custom message" to the Loyalty Label as you place each order. The "custom message" will be added to the Loyalty Label for this customer only (Note: "A Gift From:" line goes away). The "body copy message" appears on your Loyalty Labels as a default for all your clients. You may select a different message from "My Account", or contact us if you want a different message to be added.

NEW! We now offer a Custom Designed Loyalty Label. Great for individuals, teams and partnerships! This unique customized label will stand out on the cover of each issue. You now have an opportunity to add a personal touch to the design that is unique to you or your team. Custom designed area dimensions: 3.75” wide X 2” high. Fee: no charge with a purchase of 20 prepaid codes at $18 each. Each code is redeemable for a gift subscription. Go to "Prepay & Save" to learn more.

6. Can my clients choose their preferred gift subscriptions?

It is not necessary for your clients to choose. You may make a decision for them and send "surprise" gift subscriptions.

If you prefer - let your customer choose! Use the E-Gift Select SystemTM to email the subscription choices to your customer. Your customer's selection will be placed in the "E-Gift Select Order(s) pending" link on your home page.  You will be notified by return email you have orders pending. You must log in and go to "E-Gift Select Order(s) pending" link, complete and pay for the order. Your customer will receive a confirmation by email after you have checked out. Click here to download  the E-Gift Select User Guide.

Or, you may personally present a hard copy of the Gift Selection Card and have your client select their preferred gift subscription. The Gift Selection Card is available for download as a PDF-file. A Gift Selection Card size: 8.5" (W) X 5.5" (H).  Click here to download the Gift Selection Card.

7. How do I place an order and what is the delivery schedule?

Logon to your account and click on "Place An Order". If you don't have an account, you may set one up at no charge. Click on the "Create An Account" link and complete the registration form.

If your order is for 20 or more subscriptions at one time, you may download the "Excel Order File" below and send your order to dawson@ctwo.net.
