A couple days ago, I looked at the ad content of Dead Point Magazine. Today I checked out a couple other mags- Climbing, and Rock and Ice. Results below…
Dead Point~24%, Climbing ~41%, Rock and Ice ~47%
So I’m trying to find out why R+I (and Climbing) make such a positive impression on me despite the abundant ad content. I think it’s because the content is more compelling, so it outweighs the additional ad space. Additionally, it may be related to the type of ads (see image below).
This ad for First Ascent clothing is compelling & not intrusive
