REASONS TO ADVERTISE WITH MEMPHIS CURRENT
We support the artists and entrepreneurs of Memphis by promoting their work and stories through our publication. By supporting us you are helping spread the word of the creative forces that make Memphis special.
We’re what we like to call a ‘coffee table mag,’ on top of that we’re a quarterly publication. Your advertisement will have a much longer life expectancy with us than it would in a daily, weekly or even monthly publication.
We only advertise with local businesses, so your marketing campaign doesn’t have to compete with the corporate giants. It’s hard enough being a locally owned business, so we want to make the most out of your marketing budget.

Our ideal consumer is somebody who wants to buy local products, read local magazines, and buy local art. These people are the entrepreneurs, musicians, artists, socialites, business owners and service industry professionals of tomorrow, if they aren’t already today.
We are a small up-and-coming magazine that lacks the financial backing of other publications. At this point we are unable to provide detailed information about our demographics or readership beyond speculation, sales and word of mouth. However, we aim to be as transparent with our advertisers as possible by answering the questions we do know, sharing the statistics we do have and by showing you the goals that we are reaching for. Remember we are small, but growing, company aiming to better our community.
