In 2016, ABF Journal will continue to provide readers, online visitors, on-the-go executives and advertisers with multimedia platform options. ABF Journal’s leadership position in the asset-based and specialty lending industry is derived from its long-standing reputation for consistent delivery of quality content, a hallmark of the publication since its launch in 2001. As reader habits have changed, so too has ABF Journal, with a broader array of content delivery options encompassing print, digital, online, email, mobile and social media choices. ABF Journal continues to lead all others by offering integrated marketing solutions that deliver maximum results.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Well into ABF Journal’s second decade of publication, we’re reminded of one of the basic tenets of this business that will continue to guide us into the future — never stray from the unrelenting passion for providing quality content that got us here. The method of delivery doesn’t matter if we lose sight of this underlying imperative.
During the past year, we expanded our delivery platforms to encompass new channels of distribution, while being mindful of how convenience is playing a role in satisfying the informational needs of readers. Advertisers benefit from this shift as it creates a broader array of venues that can be used to promote a product or service. Marketing campaigns are most effective when considered in the context of multimedia campaigns that broaden the reach of your messaging strategies.
Since our early 2014 refresh of the abfjournal website, our advertisers have enjoyed the benefit of a year-over-year growth of 45% in unique visitor counts. To build on this momentum, we’re planning another upgrade that will incorporate adaptive technology suited for optimal reader-friendly delivery on any device. This strategy will provide many opportunities for advertisers to create awareness.
What matters most is the ABF Journal’s access to the headline makers and thought leaders in this vibrant industry. Our expanded editorial staff is on-point, working directly with the folks who can bring unique perspectives to the topics that are top-of-mind for our readers and online visitors. ABF Journal delivers a series of articles and feature stories authored by regular contributors and industry practitioners, including exclusive interviews with many of the recognized leaders in the ABL industry. If you’re seeking to broaden awareness of your brand or support a specific campaign, ABF Journal and abjournal.com are where you need to be to ensure you get the ROI you’re seeking.
