COW Blogs : Ron Lindeboom's Blog : By popular demand: Creative COW Magazine print edition available worldwide
Since the introduction of Creative COW Magazine back in early 2006, we have been asked repeatedly to make the print edition available to our friends and members around the world. Unfortunately, we were not set-up to accommodate international mailings and we had no way to bill them and maintain the record keeping -- well, unless our small team wanted to work around the clock! ;o)

But recently we have added the means to allow our friends worldwide to receive the print edition and we are delighted that the response has been beyond our expectations, with orders arriving quite regularly. It has become somewhat of a hobby here at headquarters to watch them and have the team ask: "Wow, did you see that one from Siberia? Amazing!" (Yes, we really got one from a producer in Siberia.) Our sincere "thank yous" to our friends and members around the world who enjoy the magazine so much that the PDF/digital version is simply not enough.

Watching a dream grow is always an amazing thing. I remember back to when we first launched our fledgling attempt at building a media professionals community back in early 1995. We quickly figured out that usenet groups were not going to be the future and that listservs were OK, but they were not very functional and in a visual medium such as we are in, listservs are far too limited to build anything that will matter over time. So, we elected to build a website, and having just passed the 2 million unique visitors a month threshold just this month, and to see the magazine grow to the level that it has -- becoming the strongest player in this arena -- we marvel at what can happen when a team dedicates itself to excellence.

We marvel at the people who come to the COW and who are signing up for Creative COW Magazine. We are humbled to see the work in our videos-reels section and to see various jobs that are represented in our magazine registrations. When we see people that work on some of the top shows and channels, as well as occupy places on some of the top film studio teams around the globe, it makes us want to work even harder to guarantee that the site and the magazine -- as well as the many other services we provide -- will be useful and serve the needs of our members.

It was said long ago, that if you want to achieve something that is great, serve. Therein lies the secret to the magic behind Creative COW.

You are our focus and listening to you and acting on what you want is our function and commitment here at the COW. Without you and your ideas and feedback, this would be little more than a tiny site among millions on the internet. (And it stopped being that, years ago.)

Thank you to all of our friends who are taking the time to tell us that the COW Magazine is different and is worth signing up to have it in their studios at the Vatican (yes, that one came in too), in Siberia, in England, Ireland, Australia, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Greece, Spain, Sweden,and a myriad of other wonderful places, as well. We are honored beyond belief that the COW Magazine will be finding its way to your studios and suites around the globe.

It's an amazing world, isn't it?

Oh, and because we want to make sure that our friends get them as quickly as possible, our magazine is being sent FIRST-CLASS to all of our subscribers. In fact we like to say that's...

BECAUSE A FIRST-CLASS MAGAZINE DESERVES FIRST-CLASS DELIVERY™

Seems many of you agree.

Hi Jiggy, our numbers are...
by Ron Lindeboom
We are now printing 40,000 print circulation and the digital edition can pull anywhere from 50,000 to 70,000 downloads, depending on the topic.

Your article was quite good, Jiggy, and I loved working on the layout and presentation. I think people are going to like it.

Thank you for being involved.
Ron, do you have distribution numbers?
by Jiggy Gaton
As our studio is featured in an upcoming issue, it would be nice if I could boast about some numbers:) How many print issues do you send out, and to whom do they go? thx!!! Who knows, you may soon get a rash of subscriptions from Nepal...
Thank you, Michael, we are udderly flattered
by Ron Lindeboom
The California Milk Association says that "Happy Cows Come from California" but looking at the can of Swiss Miss chocolate, seems to underscore the fact that the Alps is where the happiest cows on Earth, truly live. (Though the California Milk commercials are hilarious and we will likely hold the title for the "oddest" cows coming from California.)

Thanks for the kind words, Michael. They are appreciated.
The Great Cow

I just wanted to share some Cow Culture with you all, and let you know that the Creative Cow has become the most inspiring Moo since the Swiss "Milka" Cow (the purple chocolate one) and the French La-Vache-Qui-Rit (the laughing cheese). So Moo to you too! :-) Michael
