Testimonials – Show Me The Ozarks Magazine

Some Words from our Readers & Advertisers


Congratulations on your 17th year of SHOW ME MAGAZINE. What an accomplishment of success. I never miss getting a new edition when they are released.

In thinking about your magazine and what makes it so special and unique, I start turn through the pages. The calendar of events section covers a very broad list of area happenings that includes any interest that a person may have. Local businesses and organizations have a great opportunity to spotlight on their staff, services, and accomplishments. These are excellent things to know and reward in our respective communities.

My personal experience with you and your staff in November of 2017 was first class. The personal interaction and professionalism during the “Why I Run” article was an absolute pleasure.

Lee, here is what I believe would be the major separation of the SHOW ME MAGAZINE. It is the way you blend together all of the local communities. Each month a community, large or small, is pulled off the map and bragged about. These are moments of opportunity for providing information and recognizing individuals that may have never been known throughout our region. Another differentiator is the articles of inspiration. Stories of challenges and perseverance that local folks experience can be related to by many, as well as provide an opportunity to encourage others. This can positively impact many that may be in similar situations. Also, the recognition of local celebrations, events, and banquets plays a big part in encouraging and motivating involvement.

The SHOW ME MAGAZINE is a great benefit to our community in keeping us all connected. Congratulations again.

“Six years ago I moved from a big city to a small town and learned that marketing in a small town is definitely different than being in the big city. I tried radio advertising, I tried TV advertising and I also tried Show Me The Ozarks MagazineI could not believe my highest return was when I did Show Me Magazine. I was getting multiple inquiries every time the magazine came out from print. The magazine is in high visibility places like doctor’s offices, chambers of commerce, etc. So, when I opened my preschool at the beginning of the year, the first thing I did was contact Show Me Magazine to put in an ad where I knew the advertising would work. I knew I made the right choice when I received a call the first week was out for the new preschool.”

“I just want to thank you and everyone at ShowMe Magazine. I’ve seen the pictures on the website and read the articles. Ms. Radcliff wanted me to contact her if the magazines weren’t delivered to the Sheriff’s Office Jail. Also, she mentioned if I knew a veteran that would be a good fit for next year, let her know. I think I have found somebody who won a Purple Heart in Iraq. He now owns his own business. But again, I just wanted to say thank you.”

“We at RSVPaint-Joplin would like to give thanks to all the fine folks and staff at ShowMe Magazine and their loving subscribers. It has been amazing to see the scale of reach that ShowMe Magazine provides. It always brings a smile to our faces when someone walks through our doors saying they saw us in Things We Love and wonder why they didn’t know about us already. We have had so many gentlemen plan a date because they saw us while flipping through a ShowMe issue in the grocer or a waiting room. We have seen a growth in reservations for private parties, girls’ night out and team-building events; and we have also had a measurable increase of traffic to our website and registrations. Thank you for the increased exposure we have seen in 2016 from ShowMe Magazine staff and their subscribers. Happy holidays from RSVPaint in Joplin! We look forward to painting with you.”
