From the September 2017 edition of ShowSight, The Dog Show Magazine.
For nearly 25 years, ShowSight’s founders (Mr. Joseph Neil McGinnis and the late Mr. Duane Doll) provided the dog fancy with a print publication teeming with educational content, breaking news, and breathtaking ads of some of the world’s most accomplished show dogs. For the past few years, they also brought you a digital version of the magazine.
Our readers and advertisers have come to appreciate both media sources, and expect even more from our online presence. To that end, I am committed as AraMedia Group’s publisher to make the necessary investments in this area that will best serve the community. So even as our team continues to work on improving the quality and content of our print publication, we’re also retooling our online offerings.
Our brand-new website, SHOWSIGHTMAGAZINE.COM, is scheduled to launch by early October. The completely reimagined site promises to become a new hub for all dog organizations and every “happening” within our sport. Showsightmagazine.com won’t simply concentrate on our business model—advertising, articles, features and photos—it will function as a live, interactive dog show community database! Our relaunch will come with easier-to-use navigation, menu links to popular listings and contact information for photographers, professional handlers, superintendents, breed and all-breed clubs, the AKC and even overseas kennel clubs. Other online-only resources will include breaking news, the most up-to-date point systems, and searchable archives for several years’ worth of advertising and editorial. When you need to find something online, we want our website to speak to you, entertain you and make your life easier.
We want to bring it all to you under one virtual roof.
Access to all parts of SHOWSIGHTMAGAZINE.COM will be freely accessible by all, but the success of the new website will depend on help from our visitors. If you are interested in advertising on our new site or in our print publication, we’d like to make it easy for you to reserve space and submit advertising. You can always upload content to us online and, if you’d prefer, you can book an ad over the phone. Ms. Tammy Gincel, Mr. Brian Cordova and I are your Customer Relationship Managers and we’re always available 24/7/365 when it comes to helping you plan your next ad campaign. Advertising options will be announced at the time the new website goes live, but rest assured your ads will be shared with thousands of weekly viewers to our website, digital newsletter and social media pages. Let us help to make your dreams come true.
P.S. May I say a thing or two about love?
I fell in love in 2007. It was my only time. I was a young college student and she was still in high school. Her name was Hanifa and I met her on Myspace. (Let’s be clear, she messaged me first!) Because of the length of her messages, it took me a couple of days to reply to her (smile). But after some back-and-forth, I asked for her phone number and she gave me a wrong number! Can you believe it?
Well—long story short—fast forward 10 years, we are happily husband and wife and, most importantly, parents to our two beautiful girls, Iryna who is three-and-a-half and Adrianna, 13-months of age. They are my loves and we’d like to thank you, along with the entire ShowSight team, for your continued support on behalf of our efforts to promote the sport we all love.
Wishing you and yours all the best.
