Wisconsin Professional Agent Magazine

Ad Packages

In today’s fast-paced world, insurance agents get thousands of direct mail solicitations and advertising pieces each year. Only a few get read!

Agents read their association magazine cover-to-cover. They respond to articles, education opportunities, and advertising. They trust the information we publish.

Repetition is the key to effective advertising. Six times per year we publish 3,800 copies of Wisconsin Professional Agent (22,800 copies per year). Since we contract our ads on an annual basis, readers see your ads every month. That’s effective repetition!

In addition to off-line publications, our Ad Packages now include online offerings. Each package includes visibility on piaw.org as well as our eNewsletter and mentions on other online social pages!

Other Advertising Options

  • Loose-Leaf Advertising Inserts - This is a great way to spotlight your service or product in a particular month/issue. Reach 3800 direct recipients plus hundreds more who read the magazine as it is passed around the offices. We limit the number of paid inserts to two per issue. Inserts can be printed on both sides, can be printed on stock up to 65lb. weight and must reach PIAW by the 10th of the month prior to insertion.
  • Classified Ads - We also offer classified ads to promote: buy/selling, position openings etc. The cost is determined by membership status as well as the number of words used. This option is also contracted on a month-to-month basis. There is no additional charge for "blind ads".

We have a limited number of ad spaces available so please call quickly. We’ll reserve the limited spaces on a first-come, first-served basis.

    A redesigned PIAW.org site will launch in 2020. The new site will be responsive to screen size and will have many new features to increase traffic. It will also give us the ability to host more of our own content, so that we can direct our e-newsletter and social media readers to PIAW.org, rather than third-party sites. The current site draws about 400 users per week and about 1,400 per month. The most popular pages on our site are for education products, event registrations, membership benefits and our job board.
