Since 2001, Rev Publishing has been one of North America’s most progressive publishers of niche products. It all started with the Save-A-Buck coupon booklet, when company founder Dan Pasco launched this direct mail piece, which was sent to homes around the Niagara Region. In the year that followed, Save-A-Buck expanded into Southern Ontario and beyond. In 2005, Rev introduced their first in-room magazine, Niagara Today. Rev kept growing after that, with the launches of Niagara Dining Guide in 2006, Seneca Today and On The Boulevard in 2011, Niagara-on-the-Lake magazine and the daily deal and coupon site, GrabJab.com in 2012, the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka in 2013, the Niagara Falls Meeting and Destination Magazine, Save a Buck app, Today Magazine Local Editions in 2014 (so far). The company just continues to grow.
Rev Publishing continues to be led by Dan Pasco, who is the Publisher, President and CEO of the company. As a marketing specialist, Dan’s entrepreneurial expertise and experiential knowledge within the media industry accounts for the soaring success of Rev’s eclectic trademark line of publications. Today, 14 years after its inception, Rev Publishing Inc. produces and distributes 37 magazines and three savings publications, as well as a vast social network reaching a wide audience, which is growing every day. For 2014, Pasco has expanded Rev’s vision towards a digital, online platform, establishing a wider reach, moving towards a global market.
In an era where print magazines seem to be on the decline, Rev’s portfolio only continues to grow, thanks to Pasco’s expertise within the tourism industry. Each specific publication offers a unique editorial strategy, giving readers information on what to do and where to go in Niagara and beyond, as well as compelling stories from some of Niagara’s best writers. If you stay at a hotel in the Niagara area, chances are you have come across a Rev publication.
In addition to leadership expertise and producing high quality magazines, there are numerous factors that have contributed to Rev’s success. Rev’s products are aimed towards key targeted consumers; they hold North America’s most well ranged audience. This audience stays in hotel rooms, reads niche magazines, visits e-commerce websites; all areas Rev has covered.
