LOOKING FOR A SEASONED CUSTOM PUBLISHER FOR YOUR NEXT PUBLICATION?

Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) rely on their anchor publication, the annual visitors guide, to deliver a magazine-style, compelling story to repeat visitors and those seeking a new place to visit. Compass Media’s professional team has decades of experience and provides top-notch cover-to-cover, planning-to-sales, design-to-delivery service. It is a well-honed skill that we can translate to many other industries as well.

 

WORK WITH A DEDICATED AND PASSIONATE TEAM

At Compass Media, our custom publishing team is well stocked with storytellers. We are eager to learn about your destination or your business, what makes it special, what inspires its artisans, then to craft that into an engaging story that will lead readers to take action. 

Our services are tailored to your specific needs. We can provide strategic planning, content production, photography, in-market ad sales, design, printing, delivery, and pretty much anything else you might need.

THE PUBLISHING PROOF IS IN THE PAGES

Our relationships run deep. Over the years we have developed trusted partnerships with DMOs throughout the Southeast. Our work with the Alabama Vacation Guide and the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Vacation Guide goes back more than 25 years.Newer clients include Visit Mobile (AL), Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (AL), Visit Raleigh (NC), Discover Durham (NC), Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (NC) and The Lowcountry & Resort Islands Tourism Commission (SC).

Each client comes to the table with a unique set of needs. Our role is to adapt and create a customized approach.

“We have worked with Compass for about five years on our Visitors Guides. I appreciate their sensitivity to our objectives, their storytelling ability, the relationships they have built with our hospitality partners and the quality of their work throughout the entire editorial, design and production process. They have helped us produce a guide that rings true to our brand and to our destination. 

Compass has helped us reach, not only our editorial goals, but our funding goals by connecting with multiple hospitality partners on ad sales, especially the municipalities in our area. Sponsored editorial advertising in the Guide is up to almost to 100% because of their efforts.

We continue to do business with Compass because they have been partners with us these last few years, every step of the way, to produce Guides that we are proud of, which present compelling editorial and/or visual content to help persuade readers to visit Raleigh.”
