Small Business Lunch at Halls
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are pleased to welcome Rebecca Wesson Darwin as our guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, October 2nd.
Ms. Darwin launched the award-winning Garden & Gun in Spring 2007, after moving back to Charleston, following a successful publishing career in NYC.
Today Garden & Gun is much more than just a magazine but the anchor of a lifestyle brand with a national audience of more than one million passionate and engaged followers of the magazine, website, blogs, newsletter and social media.
***Can you expand your brand into other media?
***Will social media make a difference for your enterprise?
In 2007, the magazine was named the #2 hottest launch of over 700 magazines that year and has just recently won a National Magazine Award in General Excellence by the American Society of Magazine Editors and was named to Advertising Age's Magazine A-List (ranked #4 out of 10.) The Garden & Gun brand has continued to develop under her direction through the creation of the Garden & Gun Club, the G&G Store, G&G Exclusives, and award-winning newsletters.
The magazine has 1.2 million readers that are primarily in the southeast and southwest with an average household income of $332,000 and an average net worth of $2.25 million. To reach them with a full page ad will cost you $33,000 for an inside page and $40,000 for the back cover. Plus, the website garners 2.4 million average page views per month.
Ms. Darwin grew up in Columbia, SC, attended the University of North Carolina, and then moved to New York. She established her career at GQ, where she implemented national retail advertising and promotions programs and later became the first female publisher of The New Yorker, publisher of Mirabella, and was the marketing director of Fortune. She also served as the president and CEO of the National Association for Female Executives. Her immersion in the worlds of media, fashion, advertising and business bring an understanding and grace to the world of Garden & Gun.
