Free Online Magazine Subscriptions
Magazines targeted to your job and industry

Do you often avoid "free" offers because they're just not worth the
hassle? If you believe it's always true that "you get what you pay for,"
then think again!

TradePub, a targeted Business-to-Business magazine industry website,
offers a huge selection of magazines-free to you online. No credit card
needed; no future cancellation that needs to be remembered. All you give
in exchange for the free, print subscription is some information about
you (and it's not anything really personal, either). You might be
wondering, how can these magazines be free? The answer is: advertising.
As a new subscriber, you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire
in order to qualify (you are required to work in some aspect of the
industry the magazine discusses).

Publishers use these demographics to charge a higher premium for their
ads," explains David Fortino, Director of Business Development at
TradePub, a division of NetLine Corporation. That, in a nutshell, is the
process that allows these magazines to stay "free," and it's why you
will never pay a dime to receive them.

TradePub is one of the largest free trade magazine sites on the Web,
offering over 250 titles in 27 different industries. The site is focused
on providing incredible depth in many trade verticals, including
Computers, Finance, Agriculture, BioTech, Healthcare, Multimedia, Sales
& Marketing, Telecom & Wireless and many more. It includes the most
popular 'controlled-circulation' publications in the world including
eWeek, InfoWorld, CFO, and Advanced Packaging.

After browsing through the industry categories on the site, just click
on the magazine that interests you and then answer a few demographic
questions. It's that easy! "Remember, you can be rejected if your
responses prove that you're not compatible with the publisher's
guidelines for readership," says Fortino. "For example, scientists are
eligible for Today's Chemist at Work, but if an accountant were to apply
for a subscription to Technology & Learning, they would not qualify," he
explains. Look for magazines of interest to you at TradePub today.
