Home Improvement Publications
We appreciate your interest in a distributorship with Home Improvement, our newest brand in home ownership publications. Home Improvement provides an Independent Distributor (ID) with a turnkey system that incorporates product and market development, as well as training and support. This allows a dedicated individual, interested in owning their own business, to launch a magazine equipped with the knowledge and tools to control the success of his or her publication.
Home Improvement is published through a distribution network made up of independent business people. We take pride in building a team of professionals who can grow a business and consistently outperform the competition. IDs are highly motivated, sales-driven, customer-focused individuals who sell the Home Improvement product, ready it for production and ensure distribution of the finished publication within their territory
Currently, we offer two home improvement publications through our independent distributor program; homeimprovement, The Resource Guide for Homeowners and homeimprovement magazine. Each has unique benefits, financial requirements and market characteristics. We can help guide you to the publication best suited for your market and individual financial qualifications.
Located in Lawrenceville, GA, a suburb of Atlanta, Network Communications, Inc. (NCI) is the largest North American publisher of local printed and online home related magazines. We distribute more than 13 million magazines each month, representing more than 650 markets in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. In addition, NCI distributes its content through a world-class proprietary online network of more than 18 websites serving millions of consumers searching for home improvement services, a home or an apartment. No one comes close to matching our high-quality magazines in print and online, and in delivering the most qualified prospects to our advertisers. Simply put, we publish the most recognized home related magazines in the world and are industry leaders for reaching anyone seeking to buy, sell, rent or improve a home. More than 45,000 advertisers rely on us each month to generate quality leads from our print and online products.
IDs are the operators of their publications. They sell ads; help advertisers design ads and write ad copy; submit the materials for production and online exposure; and they distribute Home Improvement in their market. In general, they manage their publishing business to ensure growth and profitability. NCI's internal, state-of-the-art equipment and technology ensures consistent, quality and streamlines the production of every product published. Many IDs grow to own more than one publication and NCI has a vested interest in the financial future of every ID and supports the efforts of IDs as they build equity and grow their company.
The family of IDs is a group of diverse individuals with wide ranging professional experience. Some have previous publishing experience or have advertising sales backgrounds; and some are from completely unrelated fields. They also have a "If it is to be, it's up to me!" attitude. Regardless of their experience, all IDs are highly motivated, success-oriented, self-disciplined individuals dedicated to producing a publication that consistently delivers results for the advertiser, preferred content to the consumer, and a competitively winning magazine in the market.
