provides the ideal medium for reaching the entire quality spectrum. Our readership includes manufacturing, service, government and military industries as well as the fast-growing health care market. In addition, we continue to target managerial-level readers, which ensures that your ads are seen by decision makers with buying power.
Our editorial content reflects our readership. We continue to present all facets of quality, including TQM, inspection, testing, SPC, teamwork and international standards, such as ISO 9000, ISO 14000 and QS-9000. In
fact, Quality Digest offers more editorial coverage of these standards than any other quality magazine.
We also focus more on the buying process than any other quality magazine with our in-depth monthly buyers
guides. Instead of one giant, hard-to-use annual buyers guide, we concentrate on a particular category in each issue. For example, our January issue presents the only coordinate measuring machine guide available.
course, the growing role of the Web continues to provide advertisers with additional outlets for marketing their products and services. Quality Digest's Web site, Quality Digest Online (
www.qualitydigest.com), continues to be a pioneer on the Web. We launched the first and only free database of ISO 9000 and QS-9000 registered companies in North America. We were the first quality magazine to feature
the complete text of all of our issues online at no charge. We also feature exclusive online columnists.
Our innovative added-value program gives you back 10 percent of your ad dollars to spend on Quality Digest
marketing tools that make the most sense for your organization, including reprints, list rentals, supplemental ads and more.
