2017 Seasonal Supplements

Each year, Brandpoint posts more than 70 targeted editorial promotions.

Called supplements, these promotions are timed to match our clients’ articles with the editorial calendars and trends of many of the top U.S. daily and weekly newspapers. Although we can release an article any time, we see increased editor demand in certain areas during certain times of the year. Our supplements are designed to capitalize on this demand for our clients’ benefit. Because we are constantly responding to the changing needs of editors, this calendar is subject to change.
