Sheridan Magazines Offers Customers Time-Saving SendMyAd, the Industry’s Most Powerful Preflight/Approval Ad Portal
(Press Release) Hunt Valley, MD – Through a recent agreement with Blanchard Systems, Sheridan Magazines now offers publishers access to the SendMyAd smart ad portal, widely recognized as the most comprehensive ad preflight tool available. The speed and accuracy with which the interactive web-based portal assesses ad quality is unmatched, delivering instant preflight approval, or—in cases where an ad fails the approval process—detailed troubleshooting information and powerful tools for making on-the-spot corrections. An easy-to-use intuitive interface for both publishers and their advertisers, it is utilized by over 700 publications to date.
SendMyAd is not just for print ads; it also supports mobile ads for digital magazines on devices such as the Apple iPad and other e-readers. SendMyAd easily accommodates a wide array of file types.
SendMyAd is customizable. Publishers can set the portal to receive ads to their unique specifications, customize email notification messages, and customize approval cycles. The system generates custom job tickets, allowing publishers to track ad materials from upload through delivery. Upon ad preflight approval,
SendMyAd automatically converts and delivers the file to the desired publisher destination.
Morris Media Group, a Sheridan Magazines customer, used SendMyAd to prefight and upload over 80 ads in its first week using the tool. Said Publisher Geoffrey Morris, “The transition to SendMyAd was remarkably smooth. Our production crew ― and, more importantly, our advertisers ― found the service easy to use. Advertisers liked the added quality control as well.”
Sheridan Magazines’ Manager of Digital Services, Harry Wilson said, “Our customers have seen a dramatic decrease in the amount of time they spend working with advertisers to tweak their ads. The tools and interface allow the advertiser to achieve ad submission success easily and intuitively, minimizing issues and improving the production process.”
