  • highly competitive rates,
  • a targeted audience of managers, IT professionals, and power users, and
  • month-long coverage in a quality publication that becomes a regular reference.

Supplement Your Ad With Inserts

To supplement your magazine ad, we can arrange to have your company flier or a pre-paid postcard inserted into all copies, or only in selected magazines (such as subscriber mailings or airline copies). This is also ideal for companies to use in international trade shows; it saves on show printing costs and provides an attractive premium for passersby

Convenient Reader Response

Each issue of the magazine contains a postage-paid advertiser information request card and faxable information request page. These response forms enable readers to easily indicate their interest in your products or services. We receive and collate these request cards and pages in our office and supply you with responses to your ad on a monthly or biweekly basis.

Mailing Lists for DM Campaigns

The Computing Japan subscriber mailing list as well as additional address lists containing thousands of names in Japan and North America are available for sale (on disk) or rental (as preprinted labels). We can supply you with a selection of target names for your direct mail campaign or assist you to reach potential customers on other ways (such as by fax).

Easy Access to Japanese Readers

If you wish to reach both Japanese- and English-speaking audiences, take advantage of our unique EasyAccess advertising package. EasyAccess enables you to advertise your products or services in an appropriate Japanese-language magazine while dealing with us entirely in English. Place your English ad in Computing Japan, and we'll handle all ad translation and production, and even book space in the selected Japanese magazines. Get access to the Japanese market at a price much cheaper than you'll find elsewhere. We'll also compile incoming information requests in English and forward the responses to you biweekly.
