Alister & Paine Magazine

Who We Are

the digital magazine for 21st century executives.

 

Here at Alister & Paine Magazine we focus on two kinds of content: business advice and the elite lifestyle. We are a boutique publication that targets high-net-worth business executives and we believe in quality over quantity. We have a reputation of only working with the best in the business and, because we hold ourselves to such a high standard, we have several clients that have renewed their contracts with us year-after-year. We strive for perfection and know you, as a reader and a client, wouldn’t want it any other way.

 

Written by executives for executives.

 

Our business column is a blend of interviews with some of the world’s most innovative CEO’s and business advice written by industry leading experts. The executives who write for us are battle-tested leaders who many people would pay to hear speak at leadership, marketing, or financial success conferences. We provide this valuable high-quality content for free to our readers.

What We Do

Tried & True Policy

Alister & Paine has a policy of vetting every single product or service before it can be featured in the pages of our magazine. We know it’s old school and it isn’t nearly as easy as just regurgitating a press release but we believe in that old-school notion of integrity. Yes, that goes for Sponsored Editorials, too. If a product or service doesn’t live up to our readers expectations we will refund the sponsors money. We’ve done it before and we feel really good about our commitment to providing our readers the best there is. Bottom line: if we haven’t tried it, and loved it, you won’t find it in our magazine.

Award Quality Prose

Our business contributors are almost all masters of the written word but, just in case, our Editor at Large reviews each submission line by line before it hits the digital newsstands. Likewise, our in-house staff of lifestyle journalists are experts of artful articulation and colorful communication. It doesn’t hurt that we link back to your website up to three times per article to increase your SEO and make sure you’re just a click away for our readers. The fusion of passionate creative writers and SEO marketers results in nothing short of award quality editorials that our clients are proud to showcase in their office and their online portfolio.

Custom Photography

Whenever possible we will send one of our photographers on location so we can add beautiful images to the articles and our Facebook ‘Tried & True’ Photo Gallery. Our photographers will go just about anywhere to get the images for the story. We’ve sent them to Napa; they’ve skied the Grand Teton; they’ve climbed six-hundred-foot cliffs in Colorado; they’ve gotten in the passenger seat of Porsche GT2 Cup Cars traveling at insanely fast speeds and, of course; they attend our in-person CEO interviews. Each image carefully passes through the hands of our photo editor before being posted online and we always tag your company in the description so our readers can find you with just one click.

Top Google News Results

We work with every client to determine what keyword phrases we should be targeting to make sure your article receives top search results on Google News. After our journalist is done writing the article it gets sent off to our SEO specialist who carefully optimizes the article while maintaining award-quality prose. Below are just some of the examples of Google News search results we’ve achieved for clients.
