What are Covermount Gifts and how should they be used?

For Covermount Gifts, the usual method of packaging is to place the on pack in a transparent plastic sleeve and mount it on the cover of the magazine with adhesive tape or glue, hence the name.

Covermount gifts work well by boosting sales in the short-term. Here are some key issues to consider when deciding if this is the right strategy for you.

  • Covermount Gift cost
  • Impulse purchase factors
  • Added value or product feature?
  • Covermount fatigue if this marketing channel overused
  • Retail issues for packaging & display
  • Cost Benefit Analysis – Circulation, Cost & Sales Growth.
  • Advertiser issues – does it tie in with their values.

For such a powerful promotional tool, strategic thinking is key to making sure that the usage of covermounts is coherent with the marketing strategy of the magazine:

* Does covermount gift enhance the editorial values of the magazine.
* What does publisher want to achieve through covermount gifting?

How to Use Covermount Gifts

If you are interested in covermount gifts, here is a list of the 3 things you should always keep in mind when you are planning your promotion.

  1. Your budget: remember that you can slightly increase the retail price of your magazine when you attach a gift to it. That said, it’s important to know how much your clients are willing to pay and what is the perceived value of your gift.
  2. The format/size: the bigger, the more visible, but also the most inconvenient for the retail stores (and in terms of packaging). If your magazine is a small A-5 format, a leather cardholder or a compact mirror would be a great option.
  3. Your target: it almost goes without saying but you should know your target in order to know what they would like to get from you (and how much extra they’d be willing to pay to get it). Readers information and demographic are critical to maximize your covermount gift campaign.
