…and another study looks at advertisers
According to a study released by Cámara Nacional de la Industria Editorial Mexicana (Caniem), McCann Erickson/Universal, Leo Burnett/Starcom and Media Planning were the main media buyers in the Mexican media market in 2001. Magazine publishers included in the study said their strongest ad categories were tourism, media & entertainment, beauty, government and transport services. The study also found that the average price of a Mexican retail magazine is between 21 and 40 Mexican pesos. Fifty-seven percent of magazine publishers' revenues came from ad sales, and 31% from newsstand and subscription sales. The average ad page count per issue in 2001 was 17 pages.
