According to numbers published by Media Industry Newsletter, the 200-page June issue posted a 91.28% increase in ad pages vs. the June 2009 issue. Year-to-date, the title has carried 475.93 ad pages, up 15.49% vs. 2009; within the shelter category, Elle Decor now ranks #1 for ad pages and #1 for rate of growth over 2009.
Publisher Barbara Friedmann said, “A year ago, I couldn’t have foreseen this. But we have a fantastic sales staff and an outstanding editorial product, thanks to editor in chief Margaret Russell and her team. I’m incredibly proud of our staff, and grateful that the worst of the recession seems to be behind us. Not only is the Elle Decor brand vibrant, its stature is growing while other titles struggle. We’ve just re-branded our website under elledecor.com, and are busy working on the next generation of our digital edition. Demand for Elle Decor across all platforms is building as fast as we can keep up with it.”
