“ELM™ | Maine has been the best marketing investment for my solo practice. Not only is the price of advertising reasonable, but Diane encourages letting my voice as a practitioner be heard. My work with clients is very personal and it’s difficult to set myself apart from other nutrition practitioners. Writing articles for ELM™ | Maine allows me to show I am an expert in my field while also connecting with the readers. Each time I write an article, I receive an influx of calls and emails saying they loved my article and want to work with me.

Thank you Diane and ELM™ | Maine for giving me the platform to educate the public and build my practice!“

   ~ Stephanie Walsh, CNTP

“As a result of my exposure in the magazine I am receiving an average of 25-30 calls per week for patient appointments and workshop attendance. This more than pays for the cost of my ad. I would highly recommend advertising.

It is worth every penny spent to work with people who have integrity and whose goal is for the greater good, not to mention being part of a community of people who want to save the world in whatever way they can.

Thank you Diane and Chris, my practice would not be what it is today without the support of the magazine and the exposure it brings.”

   ~ Deanna M. Cherrone, MD

“After having an ad in one month and asking patients where they discovered my office, I quickly realized that the ad more than paid for itself. Please sign me up for the one year contract. I look forward to being a regular advertiser.”
