I love the fact that the J.L. Farmakis website includes a “one-stop shop” for audience demographics, maps, specs, contacts – everything media planners need to efficiently analyze media opportunities in our target markets. It is easy to use and kept up-to-date – and available 24/7 – which is very valuable to me – and my clients.
Farm newspapers get picked up and read first by farmers regardless of age, more than the other print magazines in the study. They are regarded as “most useful” among print alternatives.
