Diablo Publications Collaborates with Stephanie Ericson/Options Media Group to Sell Wine Country Advertising

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Stephanie Ericson has joined Diablo Publications as a sales executive for Napa Sonoma magazine and Concierge Wine Country. Ericson brings an extensive background in publishing, having started her career in audience marketing and circulation, then migrating into advertising sales. Her background also includes serving as publisher of Computer Currents magazine for over five years, as well as the VP of sales and marketing for three dot-com properties. After a brief hiatus, she returned to her publishing career as an account manager with Marin Magazine in October 2008 and became the publisher in 2011, prior to starting her own business.

Ericson currently owns and manages an advertising and marketing firm named Options Media Group. Napa Sonoma magazine and Concierge Wine Country are an integral part of her clients’ advertising options. Ericson has many different marketing opportunities now available for her clients in print, online, mobile, and social media, all of which will target the visitors of the Napa Sonoma region.

“There is nothing better than to help businesses solve problems, and most of those problems stem from a lack of sales. When we can come up with creative ways to reach out to the appropriate audience, we see sales grow, and my clients’ success is my goal. And now Napa Sonoma magazine and Concierge Wine Country are an integral part of this solution,” states Ericson.
