Audiology Australia's mailing service

This page contains all the information you need to know about advertising through Audiology Australia's mailing service.

The information is organised into the following categories:

What is Audiology Australia's Mailing Service?

The Mailing Service is the way to access members. It gives the advertiser the only DIRECT ACCESS to all the Audiologists who are members of Audiology Australia within Australia. It is the ideal way to advertise vacancies, career opportunities or products (conditions apply) directly to your target market. Even if you advertised in every major newspaper in every state, there is no guarantee of reaching such a specific market - and can you imagine the cost?

Who will material be sent to?

By using Audiology Australia's Mailing Service you can access all financial members of Audiology Australia. All members must be qualified Audiologists and the mail out material is posted to the address on the membership database.

How are mail outs organised?

Mail outs can be organised via the Mailing Service Booking Form.

Subject to advertisers’ requirements, there are two scheduled mail outs per month on approximately the 1st and 15th – however we reserve the right to change these dates where necessary. Deadlines for submissions to these mail outs are the 10th and 25th of the month. If you wish to send material at other times please enquire as this can be organised without difficulty. However, an "exclusive mail out" surcharge of 10% will apply.

What can be sent?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE CONTENT OF YOUR ADVERTISEMENT:
- Your material must be supplied in PDF format and be no larger than 500kb.
- All job advertisements must include the following statement: All applicants must be, or eligible to be, full Members of Audiology Australia.
- As Audiology Australia is the representative body for Audiologists, all advertising must be directed to Audiologists only

Advertisers can submit the material of their choice, however all items included in a mail out are subject to the approval of Audiology Australia. It is a condition of using the service that all employment advertising include the following statement: All applicants must be, or eligible to be, a full member of Audiology Australia. This statement must be contained within or at the end of the body of your text, and must be the same size (or larger) than the majority of the text. Audiology Australia does not endorse any advertised material and no statements implying such can be included in material. Advertisers are limited to one single sided A4 b/w insert as the standard. However, multi-page, colour or other special requests may be accommodated but will be subject to additional costs.

Below are links to some examples of material sent using the Audiology Australia Mailing Service

How are bookings made and material accepted?

Bookings are made via the Mailing Service Booking Form.

We require advertising material to be sent via email and will accept files in Microsoft Word or PDF formats. Other applications may be acceptable upon application - please enquire. A proof of your ad along with an approval form, which indicates all relevant information, will be return emailed through for you to sign and return via fax/email before your mail out is considered booked. Your signature constitutes acceptance of all aspects of this proof and of the charges indicated. This is the ONLY stage where alterations can and will be negotiated.

Can the cost be shared with multiple advertisers?

Audiology Australia will allow up to four single A4 inserts per mail out only. In any instance where there is more than one insert the POSTAGE COST ONLY will be shared equally among the advertisers. Therefore, where there are two inserts the POSTAGE ONLY is divided by two and charged equally, where there are three inserts the POSTAGE ONLY is divided by three and charged equally, and where there are four inserts the POSTAGE ONLY is divided by four and charged equally. You need to be aware that access to a shared mail out is not guaranteed and you will be quoted a full postage price for single access. We endeavour to share postage when possible if this has been requested.

How long does it take?

The time taken to process and mail will vary. The specific postage date will be indicated clearly on the approval form that is emailed to all users of the service. This timing does not include the time taken for Australia Post to deliver to your door. Audiology Australia takes no responsibility for Australia Post delivery schedules once we have delivered to the post as indicated on the approval form. It has been the Audiology Australia's experience that Australia Post delivery times will vary from three to five days depending on the postage location. This should be taken into account when putting closing or valid dates on any advertised materials.
