I had the pleasure of working with Ron Galletti as he is a Co-Producer/Creative Producer on our feature film Nation’s Fire. Ron Galletti is a creative powerhouse as well as a consummate professional. He brings to life what visionaries dream of. Bringing a movie to our beloved motorcycle community has been a long time dream of Ron and I. When we met with Writer/Director Thomas Churchill, we knew it was time to fulfill that dream. Ron has been a partner on Nations Fire from conception to fruition. Not only did he make us envision beautiful moments and ideas in this movie, his marketing plans, ideas and strategies are so unique and long term goal oriented. He gets the big picture and when your creating a big, costly picture to remain on screen in homes forever, that kind of unique creativity is an indispensable asset. Ron and Born to Ride make magical things happen, the hundreds of Florida bikers that showed up for the big unity run in the movie literally brought tears to my eyes. Thats what its all about, that unity in riders, that support, that loyalty. Ron brings an old school flair, the ruggedness audiences can relate to, while networking and growing relationships. Ron is efficient while looking out for number one, and that is getting the job done for fans to enjoy for decades to come. Thank you Ron and Born to Ride for being family, for building the brand, for diving into the world and breathing the life into Nations Fire!

Much Love,

Thunder By The Bay is a huge, annual Florida biker event that Born To Ride is proud to support. Lucy Nicandri of the Florida Center said, “The added exposure Born To Ride gave to this year’s Festival, both in print and on television, was over the top and resulted in a 30% increase in attendance. With the event promoted on the cover of the magazine resulted in an increase in phone calls prior to the Festival and a significant increase in attendance figures. This also enabled many of this year’s builders and special guests to learn more about the Festival prior to arriving in Sarasota for the Festival and how the money raised impacts so many children and their families.”

Born To Ride

MAY 1, 2009

With more than 30 years of experience in the print media arena, I can confess that 2009 has been a bit of a shocking year, to say the least. Rates for print media have fallen to their lowest levels in 15 years. I am buying opportunistic remnant buys at cost-per-thousand (CPM) that range from $1.25 to $8.00 for publications that would have never offered this in the past.

What does all of this add up to? A buying opportunity for anyone smart enough to get into the print media world. A number of clients have been bitten by the print media bug. They are reaping incredible returns-on-investment, with some reaching media efficiency ratios (MER) of 5.5 and better.

As we are all aware, the stock market and banks are not the places to invest your money right now. If you believe in your product, create a print ad and test the waters. Now is the time to dive in and see your profits grow. Print can give you better ROI when you consider all the alternatives.

The DRTV industry has always felt that print ads do not pay out. On the contrary, during the economic crisis, print media is the cheapest way to invest money into your product or service, with as little as $3,000-5,000 enough to test a newly developed print campaign.

Remember one thing: you can always use another revenue stream, and print is a stream that keeps on flowing. Even after your short-form campaign or infomercial is off the air, your print ad will keep on returning responses for weeks and months to come.


Here are nine reasons (courtesy of Magazine Publishers Association studies from 2007 and 2008) to give it a shot.

1. Magazine advertising engages. Multiple studies show that consumers are more likely to find magazine advertising acceptable and enjoyable compared to advertising in other media. In addition, they find magazine advertising less interruptive.

2. Magazine advertising moves readers to action, including visiting and searching the Web. More than half of readers took action or had a more favorable opinion about the advertiser in response to magazine ads, according to Affinity Research. Numerous studies prove that magazine ads drive Web visits and searches more than other media.

3. Magazine advertising improves ROI: Studies have demonstrated that allocating more money to magazines in the media mix improves marketing and advertising ROI across a range of product categories.

4. Magazine advertising sells and it delivers results consistently. Several studies show that magazines are the strongest driver of purchase intent and boost other media’s effectiveness. What’s more, magazines deliver results more consistently throughout the purchase funnel than TV or the Internet.

5. Magazine advertising is relevant and targeted. Consumers consider magazine advertising more relevant than advertising in other media. With a range of titles that appeal to a wide variety of demographics, lifestyles and interests, advertisers can hone in on targets that fit their needs.

6. Magazines reach the most desirable consumers. Across major demographic groups, the combination of the top 25 magazines delivers more rating points than the top 25 TV shows. In addition, heavy magazine readers are likely to be among the highest spenders across most product categories.

7. Magazine audiences accumulate faster than you think – and with lasting impact. The average monthly magazine accumulates approximately 60 percent of its audience within a month’s time, and the average weekly magazine accumulates nearly 80 percent of its audience in two weeks. In addition, consumers refer to magazine multiple times, even saving them, giving advertisers the opportunity for multiple exposures.

8. Magazines influence the influential. Magazines are the medium that “influential Americans,” the one-in-nine consumers who control the levers of change, turn to the most for making purchase decisions and recommendations.

9. Magazines supply credibility. Consumers trust and believe magazine advertising more than advertising in other media. In addition, consumers turn to magazines as a source for new product information.
