Advertisers Share Experiences with Truly Alive
In March of 2017, I started advertising with Truly Alive Magazine and was cautiously optimistic. I tried a few other marketing venues in the past (more expensive) and had very disappointing results. I had always been told than it takes several months of advertising before customer calls usually begin. With Truly Alive, I was pleasantly surprised. During the first two months (first issue), I received 10 calls, 9 scheduled appointments, and 8 services completed. Now, I am getting returning customers and referrals. Every issue I get new patients and advertising in Truly Alive has paid for itself from the beginning.
Karen Larré (the owner) has been very helpful, providing great guidance on how to write the most compelling articles. She knows her business and her readers very well. I advise anyone who wants to promote their business in Truly Alive Magazine to follow Karen’s advice. She is your partner for success.
My only regret: not advertising in Truly Alive earlier! THANKS KAREN. THANKS TRULY ALIVE.

Truly Alive Magazine is the best! We have used the magazine as our primary form of advertising for more than 10 years. Our business has grown consistently, and our clientele is mostly local. Having a local venue such as Truly Alive has made all the difference. Occasionally, we have tried other sources with little to no results. On average, we receive 30 to 40 new client inquiries every month and a minimum of 40-50% come from our articles and advertisements in Truly Alive. Karen is a big help in putting her magic on the final edit of our articles and really cares about us and our business.

Although my practice had been busy for several years, Truly Alive has assisted in booking appointments farther out; creating a waiting list and filling last minute cancellations. Whenever I write articles, we receive consistent, significant calls from new patients. I recommend Truly Alive to all holistic practitioners who seek to reach the very audience most interested in alternative approaches and build a robust, successful practice.

I have not only enjoyed working with the Truly Alive staff, especially Karen Larre – who is professional, creative and intuitive, I have also benefited from the advertising. By far, this has been the most effective form of advertising I have used in my 28 years of practice. Thank You Truly Alive!

We have had the largest response from advertising in your magazine over any other publication. Often I have people come up to me in public and say, “Aren’t you the lady who writes articles in Truly Alive Magazine? I love reading them! Truly Alive is a very important publication and we are proud to be part of it!

I get 4-6 new patients every month from their reading my articles in Truly Alive. And that adds up because they refer their family and friends. Consistency counts. I have been writing articles and advertising since 1998.

I have been advertising in Truly Alive (formerly Living Natural Magazine) for 21 years. It’s always been worth the investment and more & more people are calling from Truly Alive every day, making my 2012 advertising more worthwhile than ever! It’s interesting to note that this magazine is kept on hand as a resource for long periods of time; as people sometimes phone for appointments from an issue many years old! I highly recommend Truly Alive for anyone who wants to target those interested in natural health and/or spiritual products or services.

It’s been a real blessing working with Truly Alive. The magazine, from the very first issue has been fantastic for us. We love the energy of the people who come from Truly Alive. They are very bright, and are working on being more conscious in the world. Truly Alive clients, having read about Mino’s treatments first, have less fear. They are more relaxed as they have a sense about what they can expect. We are booking appointments farther and farther out now. Thank you, Truly Alive!

It took a year (6 issues) for our investment to “truly” pay for itself in Truly Alive. Although people may not come from the first article they read, after reading a few times, it seems there is one article in particular that triggers an appointment. Truly Alive has allowed us to increase our practice in a dwindling economy.

As an advertiser for about 8 years, one of the things I appreciate about Truly Alive is the opportunity to educate readers about natural health and the services I provide. Clients often come into the office clutching an article I wrote a year ago saying, “I have been holding onto this article and I am so happy to finally be here.” Many new clients find me in Truly Alive; in fact, second only to word of mouth, it has been the best generator of new clients. I am grateful to Karen for doing such a great job in creating a beautiful local resource for natural health and spiritual topics – and I LOVE the new online magazine~!

Advertising with Karen and the Truly Alive Magazine has absolutely been the most beneficial thing I have done to make known such a unique modality as Brainwave Optimization! You will no longer see my articles in the magazine because I am relocating to Colorado. I am happy for the people I have been able to assist and that more people know about the importance of having a balanced brain as a starting point. Thank you Karen for your excellent service!
On several occasions over the past few years, I have sponsored Sherry (Shahpar) Mosavar Rahmani, an exceptional healer, in coming to the Albuquerque area. Each time she has visited, her healing events have been well received; however with less than wonderful turnouts. The last visit (November, 2012) was advertised in Truly Alive Magazine for the very first time. Not only were Sherry’s openings completely filled, the response was so overwhelming that we had to extend her visit by two days! And even then, her schedule overflowed into a waiting list. It was amazing (and unprecedented; even with my best efforts of the past).
Karen’s help in writing an outstanding article (taking the content that was available and structuring it in a most compelling way) and direction in creating a very beautiful page contributed to the success of this particular visit. It was also incredibly powerful and very enjoyable working with Karen. She drew the best information out of me and created something spectacular. The experience went above and beyond my expectations! I highly recommend Truly Alive Magazine to anyone wanting to publicize a natural health or spiritual event.

Before Truly Alive, we advertised in other local publications. We had no response from any of them. From the first week in Truly Alive, we received calls; had people join our classes and participate in other ways at the Center. Over time, people who didn’t respond right away have called saying they have been following the Center’s articles and are now ready to take the next step of attending Center events and classes. We have been very pleased with the response from Truly Alive. Thank you, Karen for all of the efforts you put into making Truly Alive such a wonderful and effective publication.
