Tennessee & Kentucky's Motorcycle Magazine
Our Advertising Lasts For 30 Days Not 30 Seconds
Thunder Roads® Magazine started as a 40 page black and white newsprint magazine in Tennessee in March of 1999. Now, Thunder Roads® is a network of 9 state wide free magazines, distributed in 13 states through motorcycle dealerships, independent motorcycle shops, parts stores, leather shops, tattoo shops, bars, restaurants, rallies, motorcycle events, anywhere motorcycle riders frequent. We are not only a print magazine but we are also on the web, DIGITALLY! We reach thousands of potential customers through the virtual mag and our website. Ads on our website and our virtual mag are at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU. It’s just another example of how Thunder Roads® Tennessee/Kentucky goes the extra mile to help you and your business prosper.
Thunder Roads® Magazine’s growth has multiplied during a time when most advertising and publishing companies were struggling. Why? Because our readers love our current local coverage, and state wide information. Our readers hold onto these magazines and read them from cover to cover. That means businesses that advertise with us can target their best prospects, and ensure their messages have a long shelf life. With such efficiency, niche publications are the future of printed media, and our readers frequent our advertisers on a regular basis. Best of all, we love what we do. Thunder Roads® Magazines are Owned, Written, & Published by Bikers for Bikers.
Advertising with radio, television, or general print is a scattershot, a few of the people the ad reaches will be your target audience, advertising with a dedicated motorcycle magazine is target audience specific. Almost every person reading the magazine is a potential customer. There are other motorcycle magazines out there, what separates Thunder Roads® from the rest, we were first, we’re the best, and we’re local. There are regional magazines out there, and they are good magazines, and if your business can benefit from advertising across the entire Southeast, and you can pay the additional cost, they may be your best option. If your customers live and work locally, we distribute as many magazines in Tennessee and Kentucky as others do regionally. We currently publish up to 25,000 magazines per month. Thunder Roads® Tennessee/Kentucky also supports our advertisers by attending events and on social media.
Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival and Vette City Motorcycle Music Fest both started advertising their events in Thunder Roads® Tennessee before their very first event because they understood that the people that would come to their events read our magazine. Smoky Mountain Thunder, a Memorial Day awareness ride, advertises exclusively with us and in 2015, attendance went from 3200 the previous year to over 4000 in 2015, they reserve their space in the magazine every year, and they tell us they have no reason to advertise anywhere else. The Tennessee State HOG (Harley Owners Group) Rally advertised with TRTN exclusively in 2018 and it was the largest HOG rally ever. Advertising in Thunder Roads® Tennessee/Kentucky works, it’s cost effective, and we love supporting our advertisers.
