Clients & Profits X keeps a detailed table of the publications you use for print media buying.


Your publications are listed here, and sorted alphabetically. Clicking once on a publication displays its ad sizes and standard rates. Double-clicking on a publication ID opens the Edit Publication window, where you can make changes to publication's details.

Each publication belongs to a vendor in the Vendor table. One vendor can have dozens of publications, each with its own set of ad sizes and rates.

Publications are used by print media plans in Clients & Profits X Pro and Job Tracker; in addition to print media estimates, and insertion orders - which can be found in all versions of Clients & Profits. A print media plan is composed of different space buys, and can be grouped into a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. Each publication can be added as separate space buys on a print media plan or print media estimate. When you’re adding a space buy, you’ll select a publication from the Publication lookup list -- which links the media buy with the publication and its rates.



The Publications/Ad Sizes window shows your publications (magazines, newspapers, etc.) and any ad sizes information you've entered for them. You’ll add, edit, and delete both publications and ad sizes here -- each window’s toolbar buttons let you add, edit, delete, and print publication or ad sizes information as needed. And there's no limit to the number of publications (and ad sizes) you can have in your Publications table.

You can set up standard rates for each ad size, as well as special ad size/rate combinations for each client. When a print media plan or print media estimate is created, the right rate will be copied to the spot buy automatically.

Choosing a client from the pop-up menu displays that client’s special contract rates. A client is entered in the rates menu after a media plan has been added for them. The Ad Sizes table needs to be updated as the rates and ad sizes change.
