Magazine advertising effectiveness in the U.S. in 2018, by position Between 2017 and 2018, 62 percent of magazine ads located in the third quarter of the book led people to take action relating to the advertisement. Examples of actions are: considering purchase, recommending the product, and clipping or saving the ad.

Leading magazine advertisers

Other brands on the list included Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, and Pfizer.
