Upcoming Highlights – New Markets

Adding a new service/new market to your business

The April 2017 issue feature story on North End Electric from Scranton, PA focuses on a repair shop that expanded  their business by adding a counter with HVAC products and saw growth from exploring a new market.

What goes up…Elevator equipment and maintenance

Elevators are more complex than their function of moving people or objects up and down in a building. They involve special motors, bearings, and maintenance. This month we look at a few businesses who work closely in elevators and on the equipment to keep them running.

More in April 2017: AHR Expo, EMCW Expo, V-belts

Engineering Editor Richard Nailen explains what a v-belt dressing is and why it is used. Flat leather belting vs. elastomeric v-belts. Squealing belts–treating symptoms. Potential damage to belt materials. Dressing universally disapproved by belt manufacturers; claims by dressing suppliers.

Mix it up to reach a new audience!

Advertising in an issue that doesn’t feature topics directly in your target audience is a great way to expand your audience when the issue is mailed to new readers throughout the year. It adds variety and presence to your advertising program. Issues like the April 2017 issue of Electrical Apparatus magazine offer ideas for our readers to expand their businesses, which can lead to new prospects for advertisers who manufacture or distribute products.
