FREE TO ADVERTISERS: PRINT ADVERTISING ANALYTICS Advertising Effectiveness and Readership Studies 

How effective is your advertising?

To help you learn the answer to this important question, Progressive Crop Consultant Magazine [September/October 2024] invests in adViewPRO studies from the Baxter Research Center.  Unlike other magazines, we don’t require a minimum number of insertions for our ad studies. Instead, every advertiser in the studied issues this year will receive that full report at no additional charge. 

Plus, our exclusive agreement with Baxter Research Center means that you can’t get this rich data from any competing magazine. Ask us for a sample report, and you’ll see what we mean. Advertising is expensive, and it can be difficult—or impossible—to know whether or not the money you’re spending is accomplishing your marketing mission. adViewPRO studies take the uncertainty out of your marketing investment by providing clear answers to critical questions.
