Latrobe, CA

Located in an ideal climate in the Gold Country foothills of El Dorado County, Northern California, this magazine has been publishing since 1994. Around Here Magazine—published quarterly—presents the gems of El Dorado County: featuring the people, places, businesses, local history, events and activities. Popular, very successful and debt-free, the magazine has a steady revenue stream from local businesses that advertise their services and products. But the owner has hardly tapped the advertising market. Since it’s a home-based business, the overhead is very low with home-based tax benefits. I plan to retire, and turn Around Here Magazine and its website www.aroundheremagazine.com over to someone who has a passion for community and communications! The business could use someone younger than me — or a couple who would enjoy the fun of being a partner in an energetic community. Much of the advertising comes in on its own. This is due to the magazine’s high visibility in the communities and because it is a longtime, well-known, trusted product. For additional revenue, it’s possible to spin off themed publications, or to franchise the existing publication. The sale of the magazine also includes the longtime website: www.aroundheremagazine.com. It has a calendar of events, which also runs in the printed magazine, and recipes and features. Around Here held its own through the weak economy of the Recession. Revenue could be increased by beefing up sales, maybe increasing ad rates (not increased for over 10 years) and using the website and social media to generate additional revenue. The website could do so much more and is an untapped vehicle for increasing ad revenue. 14,000 magazines are distributed each quarter at high-traffic businesses in the foothills, where residents (and visitors) pick them up and take them home or back to their office. Feedback from readers: “We love this magazine,” and it's “unique,” “interesting,” “informative” and “fun.” Using a standard rule-of-thumb in the industry, the magazine has at least 35,000 readers each quarter (unaudited). This magazine and its website can go to new heights, but the owner, after 24 years of single-handedly operating it, would like to place both the magazine and website into the capable hands of someone else... then ease into semi-retirement. Owner will help with a smooth transition and even willing to work for the new owner!
