Listen to our featured Ask Those Branding Guys radio show podcast: Dave Herndon, Editor-in-Chief, New Mexico Magazine

Hello, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a Day Marketing™. On our radio show Ask Those Branding Guys, we discussed tourism and the branding of New Mexico with the Editor of the state’s magazine.

Joining us on the show was Dave Herndon, Editor-in-Chief of New Mexico Magazine. Part of the Department of Tourism, the 92 year old publication promotes travel throughout the state and focuses articles on history, culture, cuisine, lifestyle and related activities. This aligns well with the current New Mexico True advertising campaign.

Glover pointed out that for non-residents, which comprise 68% of subscribers, the publication with its enticing photographs creates anticipation and encourages visitors to plan what to do on their next visit. The magazine is also a great reminder of what the state has to offer.

Herndon shared that while circulation has not suffered in recent years, the rapid expansion of social media choices has lured advertisers away. To sustain itself, NM Magazine constantly works on audience development in an effort to attract new readers and followers.

Dave’s advice: choose your targets and focus your branding and marketing efforts there. You can’t be all things to all people.

Enjoy the show.
