The Mission of The Wave is to connect, nurture and grow our local holistic and metaphysical communities. In service of this mission, we want to help you grow your business, so you can reach and heal more of those in need of healing and who are seeking the next step in their journey of evolution.
The First Axiom of successful marketing is consistency. It has been proven by countless marketing studies that it takes 6 to 8 “touches” (ads in the same venue) before most people are moved from inaction to action, (from looking to buying).
We have created the opportunity to write feature articles for The Wave, to provide the perfect way to “touch” thousands of YOUR Prime Audience many times, over time! Authors of articles that are accepted for publication receive the very unique opportunity to:
- Demonstrate their expertise and introduce their products and services to over 10,000 members of their prime audience, (people already interested in holistic, metaphysical, New Age, and environmental subjects)
- Convey their message, consistently, month after month, in print and online, to thousands people in the North Bay and SF already interested in what they have to offer, for as little as $150 a month.
To take advantage of this unparalleled opportunity to grow your business by leaps and bounds, we invite you to submit an article for publication in The Wave, using the guidelines below to craft your article. Don’t be concerned if you think you are not “a good writer”. We offer free professional editing services to help you write a professional and engaging article. Authors of articles accepted for publication receive a section at the end of their article that features a short bio, contact information, and a picture. They will also be required to purchase a series of at least 3 business card size or larger ads, beginning with the issue in which the article appears.
We have found that the combination of an article and a series of display ads is the most successful way for authors to promote their products and services. For as little as $75 a month, (which includes FREE professional ad design services), you can keep your business consistently in the forefront of the minds of thousands of members of your prime audience, over time, and at the very lowest cost in ANY venue, (print, radio, digital, speaking engagements, or events) ANYWHERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

Leverage Your Article! If your article is accepted for publication in The Wave, this is just PART of a very successful marketing formula. Your article demonstrates your expertise and helps to develop a relationship with readers. For your article to be a truly effective marketing instrument, you must continue to remind readers of your company and your product or services in subsequent issues of The Wave. Also, appearing several places in each issue increases your impact and credibility. Marketing data shows that it takes 6 to 8 touches, (ads in the same venue), to move folks from inaction to action, (from looking to buying).
