Happy Holiday season everyone! I hope you are finding some time to destress and enjoy the season as I know this time of year is crazy busy for many. For example, I personally have worked every day since the middle of October due to expos, events, meetings, prep work, etc.

I want to send out a last-minute reminder that the deadline is approaching to get into the 2020 Directory Edition (12/10) and the January edition (12/15). If we need to talk, sign paperwork, etc...

New Advertiser Joins NATC Family!

We have a new advertiser that has taken the back cover! It's actually the very first advertiser I've brought on board to the Natural Awakenings TC Family --- so I'm pretty excited about it!

So, make sure to pick up this month's magazine and check out the back cover. It is a little bit untraditional as far as what you would expect to see from an ad, but it seems to work VERY well for their specific set of products... and that's what matters.
Also make sure to check out their Business Spotlight on page 7 of the print magazine - or online at, as well as Erin Thole's Spotlight as well found on the same print page, or online at

Would you like a Business or Therapy Spotlight article about you, your business, or specific thing you do? Give me a call and lets talk about how we can get that to happen! Another example of a Spotlight was one that I did on Esogetics and Colorpuncture which can be seen here:
You can easily find the ENTIRE magazine online at:

2020 Topics

(I'll send this out shortly)

Each month, Natural Awakenings has a primary theme or topic, as well as a bonus topic of conversation. Here's the calendar of topics for 2019 so you can plan News Briefs, calendar of events, and more!

Planning Ahead

January's Theme: TBA

Deadline to get your stuff in: Sunday, 12/15


Upcoming Themes:

  • February: 
  • March: [Special edition]
  • April: 
Do you need the Advertising Planning Calendar to help plan out News/Health Briefs that are included in your advertising contract? Want to correlate events with the theme of the magazine so your event stands out more? It's a great tool!
Advertiser Tip: Change your ad up every 3-months to help readers notice your ad again. Don't have the tools or time to create your own ad? We have someone that can do it for you.

Who are the Natural Awakenings Readers?

  • 51% have an annual household income of more than 50K

(Results from our 2016 National Readership Survey)

What do you have going on in September/October/November?

You can easily submit News Briefs right online. Health Briefs, Articles, and Community Spotlights need to be sent to [address removed] - though please review editorial guidelines which are available on the website. Keep in mind, advertisers get first consideration with any editorial content.

Calendar listings can also easily be submitted right online at Online event listings are currently free.

Note: Magazine drop locations are eligible for up to 2 in-print calendar listings/month (if space is available). Due to space restrictions, not all submissions that are approved for our website will appear in print in our magazine. To guarantee a spot in the print magazine, print calendar listings start at only $20/mo. View the current calendar

Classified Ads: Classifieds are a great way to bring attention to your business. Are you looking to rent space, hire staff, looking for a location to hold a meeting? Classifieds are just another way to keep your name in front of your target market... and if you're a current advertiser, but don't have a calendar listing for the month, you can do a Classified Ad instead!

Classifieds are $1/word/month with a $20 minimum and must be pre-paid.
Concerned about creating a display ad? We have someone that can do that for you!

Let's Get Together

Want to talk about your advertising options with Natural Awakenings? Feel free to drop me an email at [address removed] or give me a call at[masked].

Please keep in mind, we normally don't like to just email over the Marketing Packet as it does have a lot of options, and we want to make sure that you're getting the best options, and that it's clear with everything that is included so you get the most out of your ad package.

We can either talk over the phone, or preferably, let's meet for coffee or tea at a local, small business and go over things in person, while also helping to support one of the many fantastic local businesses we have here in the Twin Cities.

Make it a great day,
