Marcy Bloom on How Digital Media Has Changed Magazine Advertising

Marcy-Bloom-Article

Marcy Bloom has spent 17 years working as a publisher on national magazines, from GQ to Lucky. Now, she’s taking on an even bigger role as senior vice president and group publisher at Modern Luxury.

With more than 40 titles across 15 major markets, the company has an abundance of content to be shared on various media platforms. Here, Bloom explains how digital has changed the magazine advertising landscape:

You know, I believe that one of the key things that digital has done is it’s allowed you to be more targeted. And that is from a national magazine perspective — you can’t get as close as you can in a digital sense. And that’s actually why I’m beyond inspired by what we’re doing here [at Modern Luxury] because we have a closeness and an intimacy. We have editors, sales staff and marketers in each market. Our brands reflect those markets. So we’re getting as close as you can via print, and that feels extremely relevant, especially because of what digital can offer.
