Advertising with QLife

The pandemic has placed an economic stress on everyone. We’ve spent our time in quarantine re-thinking our business models and optimizing our processes. We’re pleased to announce an all new pricing model that offers businesses unprecedented flexibility in print-based advertising at a time when they need to stretch their marketing dollars.

It’s so flexible we’re calling it QLife Elastic Advertising.

With QLife Elastic Advertising, businesses can now advertising a full page ad for as little as $90. Instead of committing to a large print circulation, we can now offer businesses the ability to purchase adverting in 1,000 unit increments, so you can advertise as much or as little as your budget allows. Times are tough and we know this will help so many businesses.

We print every issue of QLife on a high-quality, bright white silk paper finish that is easy to read and won't rub off on your hands. Your advertising pops off the page. COVID has changed everything, so we changed everything. There's no long term commitments. We made our pricing as affordable as possible. Volume discounting is built into our pricing. And if your business is affected by fluctuating changes in government directives, you can pause your advertising and resume at a later date when your business is ready to re-welcome your customers.

Studies show that advertising in LGBTQ media is the most effective and memorable reach to LGBTQ consumers.

While it is important to direclty support local LGBTQ organizations, be present at pride parades, galas, fundraisers, and other events, only LGBTQ media provides year round exposure to the LGBTQ consumer.
