Advertising in Building Services Engineering ensures blanket coverage of the entire industry delivered in a print edition, via our website and on Facebook.
Just like all other essential purchasing decisions, deciding where and when to advertise is based on key factors such as:
Value for money
The quality of the medium
The relevance of the circulation to your target audience
The means by which that target audience is reached.
If your interest — or that of your client — is the building services sector, then Building Services Engineering delivers like no other journal. In addition to the printed edition, it is freely available in pdf format online while there is also a dedicated Facebook page, directly linked back to the website.
When comparing magazines, the question is not so much what’s cheapest but, what value you get for your spend? The quality of the technical articles in Building Services Engineering, coupled with the dedicated coverage of the various professional and representative bodies, sets it apart.
However, trade and product information is equally important. When you advertise in Building Services Engineering you receive complementary editorial coverage. For instance, when you take a page advertisement in a feature, you get a full page of editorial, plus images, free. We also provide advertisement design and make-up free of charge when required.
In addition to the printed edition, every issue is freely available as a pdf download from our website. The current and all back-issues are permanently accessible at the click of a button (buildingservicesnews.com). They can be downloaded in seconds and are accessed in page-turner format which is akin to having the printed version on your screen. Moreover, where email addresses and websites are listed on advertisements and in the editorial, they are hyper-linked to provide directs links back to the featured company.
There is also a very strong Facebook presence.
Full page — €1700 (plus VAT @ 23%)
Half page — €1200 (plus VAT @ 23%)
Double Page Spread — €2000 (plus VAT € 23%)
We also provide separate complementary editorial to support that, including images. So, for a full-page advert, the client also receives a full page of editorial, including images, effectively making it a two-for-one offer.
In addition, we have a special advertorial formula to facilitate all-embracing stories/messages. This format is used where the standard corporate-style advert is insufficient to convey the message. This is a double-page spread — priced at €1900 (plus VAT @23%) — which we will write, design, and make-up in conjunction with the client, with the client having full control over content, style of presentation, etc. Alternatively, the client can supply the finished pdf in print-ready format.
Apart from the printed edition, there is also an identical online version, freely available to all who wish to access it. The current and all back issues are permanently accessible at the click of a button at (buildingservicesengineering.ie). They can be downloaded in seconds and are accessed in page-turner format which is akin to having the printed version on your screen. In addition, where email addresses and websites are listed on advertisements and in the editorial, they are hyper-linked back directly to the featured person/company address.
There is also the Building Services Engineering Facebook page. Here again postings are linked directly back to the Building Services News website.
Just like the cost comparison, what matters with professional and trade publications is not so much the number of copies distributed but the relevance of the readership, and how they receive the magazine. Here again Building Services Engineering has no equal as it is the official journal partner of the key professional and trade representative bodies such as:
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE)
The Irish Ventilation Industry Association (IVIA)
The Heating & Plumbing Association of Ireland (HPAI)
The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHCI)
The Heat Pump Association of Ireland
American Society of Heating & Air Conditioning Engineers, Ireland Section (ASHRAE)
