'This promo is really driven by brands with content integrating on the back end,' says Diane Hall, 2's publisher and president. 'We shopped the whole party from Grocery Gateway and we offer this feature as an added value to our advertisers. Contextual selling is what they're buying. It's stylish and hip.'

Package prices range from $5,000 to $16,000 depending on a brand's level of involvement. 2 Magazine targets urban couples in the 25-34 age range.
