"Cooperative Living is a fantastic vehicle for Farm Credit. It is a well-produced, trusted, publication that reaches and is read by our target audience. When comparing readers per dollar, there is no other advertising medium that can touch it. Plus, the magazine staff is terrific to work with and they provide great suggestions about ad type and placement." 


Jim Belfield, Colonial Farm Credit




"Cooperative Living is the most powerful statewide publications we partner with to advertise our custom homes and building service. Cooperative Living offers us highly targeted marketing and with a circulation of over 490,000 copies per month it's a huge value and an important part of our ongoing marketing plan."


Kelly Wilkes, Lockridge Homes



"The advertising initiative to promote Bath County tourism is in its infancy, as a result we have been very selective in choosing advertising vehicles to promote our area.  We have found Cooperative Living to be a dynamite way to reach our audience.  The publication has a large circulation.  It is read by everyone.  The calendar feature is such a wonderful tool to promote our events and working with Amanda Cunningham and your editorial staff is a dream.  We more than get than our money's worth and we are happy to be a part of the Cooperative Living family." 

Maggie Anderson, Tourism Director, County of Bath



"When I was the Director of sales for an event venue in Virginia I continually recommended advertising in Cooperative Living magazine to my clients. I was convinced it had the greatest reach into rural Virginia over any other media. No one would listen. Fast forward to 2015 and I am now an event promoter with the opportunity to put my money where my mouth was.  We created an integrated marketing program utilizing Cooperative Living to kick off the campaign.  Our success was even better than projected!  Your customers read your magazine and act. We saw an increase in inquiries, e-mails, web activity and phone immediately upon publication which we directly attribute to our increase in attendance this past Expo.  We thank you for your incredible reach, and our competition for not taking advantage of it.  Your terrific and we look forward to future endeavors!

"WaterFurnace has advertised in Cooperative Living Magazine for over 20 years.  We normally list our dealers and they support the annual cost of each yearıs campaign.  Recently I spoke with one of our dealers  who has been listed every year from the start.  He told me that he now has many geothermal customers who first learned of geothermal via your magazine.  He would not think of ever missing one of our sponsored joint ads. Cooperative Living Magazine is one of the main pillars of our marketing outreach in Virginia.  Our 20 plus years of relationship speaks for itself."
