About Us


LET US INTRODUCE YOU

 

TALENTRATERS® (TR) MAGAZINE


TR MAGAZINE is a magazine that specifically features well known talents of every type and top rock bands throughout the world. Our definition of professional well known talents are individuals possessing superior skills and abilities in their talent category and one who makes quality content a priority, and of course a celebrity being an individual who is famous or a very well-known person. TalentRaters® typically scouts professional and celebrity artists and talents and invites them for interviews for TR MAGAZINE, but we also welcome walk-ins that email us via info@talentraters.com or via our Contact Us page with their interest to be featured in TR MAGAZINE.  To get featured in this magazine, artists/talents must either purchase one of our 4 Plans offered with our cheapest plan being the TR Starter Plan which requires artists/talents to purchase 14 magazines which will aid in the circulation of their stories or they can contact us directly at info@talentraters.com or call at 856-566-5147.  If you desire to be featured in the magazine you will have to sign an agreement giving consent and agreeing to purchase a minimum of 14 magazines.  If you desire to be featured on the cover, you must sign a cover agreement which includes the cover price as well as the month you will be featured and our TR terms.

TR MAGAZINE is a premier magazine so high resolution 300 DPI images or better (4K) and videos are required as well as mastered songs. We also require Artists and Talents being featured in TR MAGAZINE to Register For Free allowing us to best showcase and promote them and feature their videos and songs in our Featured Videos Section on the TalentRaters® homepage. Since TR MAGAZINE was created and launched by Founder, Joseph C. Bennett, in the fall of 2016, it has been an absolute hit! TR MAGAZINE has been booked a month to a month in a half out at all times showing how serious Artists and Talents are about PR Opportunities and getting their stories out.


INTERVIEWS


TR MAGAZINE conducts 4 types of interviews 1) Paper (most common) 2) Telephone 3) Live Skype and 4) Live Interviews. With paper interviews Artists and Talents showing interest will be asked to provide their email, TalentRaters® will then provide the Artist or Talent with a series of interview questions in MS Word, interview instructions, and a photographer/videographer release form. Artists and Talents requesting telephone or live Skype interviews will be provided paper interview questions also, the only difference is that for telephone and live video Skype interviews they will be recorded. Travel, lodging, and interview expenses must be negotiated by all interested parties with TalentRaters®, Inc. in advance to conducting the interview(s). Once the Artist's or Talent’s articles are published, TalentRaters® will share it to all of their social media sites. It is important that the Artist or Talent assist by posting their article link to their social pages and sharing throughout social media and beyond also.

DONATIONS


So much work goes into preparing and writing the articles for Artists and Talents. We ask that you please purchase printed magazines, advertise with TR, and donate.  We also ask that, you the featured artist, purchase at least 14 copies of printed magazine and have your family, friends, fans, and supporters do the same.  This is your legacy and the chances of being featured in Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue are slim to none!  Being featured in a magazine publication is a very big deal. Every bit helps us to operate and to continue to provide this great resource to Artists and Talents for many years to come and we truly appreciate your contribution. The cost of the printed magazine will be high to start given smaller orders, but as demand goes up and magazine orders increase significantly, the cost per printed issue will go down. Let's work together to make that a reality.  After all TalentRaters®® is a business and we have to to pay our hardworking journalists, but we assure you that we will provide you the best publicity your money can buy!


FUTURE PLANS



As TalentRaters® grows it is our desire to produce Artists and Talents that have demonstrated outstanding abilities and proven that they have what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry. We also hope to have instructors that can help develop Artists and Talents. We want to have events where Artists and Talents can perform and also connect with each other as well as industry executives, and assist them in building their audiences. Lastly, we want to meet with our domestic (U.S.) and international artists and help them grow and develop as artists,talents, entertainers, and performers in their countries.  We are working with the Saint Peter's Boys Orphanage (ages 13 - 18) located in North New Jersey with the intent to help make a  lasting difference in their lives.  We are also interested in collaborating with other charitable organizations as time moves forward and opportunities arise.
