Advertising: Reinvest And Get Results!

Thank you for taking the time to learn how APRO can help you during these challenging economic times. If you’re looking for ways to reach the rent-to-own industry, consider these five great opportunities to expand your company’s market:

RTOHQ: The Magazine

APRO’s Premier Magazine Serving the Multi-Million Dollar Rent-to-Own Industry

With increased market penetration and emphasis on image enhancement, the rent-to-own industry is attracting more attention from the financial community and adding new customers. In addition, more manufacturers are adding rent-to-own to their marketing tiers. As the premier magazine serving this booming industry, advertising in RTOHQ: THE MAGAZINE is essential for companies targeting the rent-to-own market.


Product Focus and Advertising Deadlines

In every issue of RTOHQ: THE MAGAZINE, a listing of Who’s Who in Rent-to-Own will be listed. These listings highlight rent-to-own industry product and service suppliers who support the industry in a variety of ways.

Place a full-page, four-color advertisement at the normal display rate and receive up to three additional pages of editorial for $900 per page. APRO reserves the right to approve all copy and design work. APRO will provide specifications for all advertorials and requests that advertisers provide print-ready digital files of the artwork. APRO also offers copy writing and design services for an additional fee (earlier deadlines will be required for these services).

All deadlines are firm.

Take Advantage of APRO’s Year-End Online Bonus Issue

In addition to the print version of RTOHQ: The Magazine, APRO also publishes an online edition of each issue accessible year-round. At the end of each year, APRO publishes a seventh edition of the magazine, a digital-only issue compiling the most pertinent feature articles from the previous year. Six-time advertisers are included in the seventh edition automatically.

RTO Almanac

A comprehensive rent-to-own industry resource and membership directory referenced year-round

The annual Digital RTO Almanac is APRO’s membership directory, listing dealers, their stores and suppliers in an easy-to-use format. The RTO Almanac is the direct connection for member dealers to contact suppliers, fellow APRO members and association headquarters. In addition, members refer to the RTO Almanac frequently for information on APRO’s leadership, legislative updates, member service programs and to reference APRO’s bylaws, code of ethics and collection practices.

As an advertiser, the RTO Almanac provides year-long exposure to dealers. Every time a dealer opens his or her directory, your ad is seen again and again—maximum exposure at a minimum cost. As an added value, advertisers in this annual publication who are also associate members will be designated as such in the supplier section. The RTO Almanac is published each year in March.
