Newspaper Print Advertising

Print is an experience.

A cup of coffee and time to think. A tangible thing you can hold and keep. A puzzle worked out in the margins. A story shared across the table or the aisle.

It’s also dollars saved and earned. Sometimes a reminder to make an extra stop, or call the right person for the job or a coupon cut out to use and save some hard earned money.

Newspaper advertising reaches smart, connected consumers with higher incomes and lends credibility to your image!

Not all of our moments unfold online.

Retailers know pre-prints, inserts and wraps get results. They are, by far, the biggest and most reliable drivers of in-store shoppers, for big box stores or neighborhood businesses. Blanket the entire market, or target specific ZIPs to attract consumers closer to home. Want to reach every household...even the ones that don't subscribe?  We have you covered with our Neighbors publications! Ask about Northern Neighbors and Tri-County Neighbors to reach additional homes too!

And when you need more visibility outside the circulars, we offer a range of high-impact ad placements that potential consumers can't miss or ignore!

Search Engine Optimization

When a potential consumer performs a search for one of your products and services do you show up in the results on the first page of google or other search engines?  Are you in the top 3 results?  Above the fold?

Most of the clicks on a search page happen in the first 3 choices within the organic section of the results.  Put your business in front of interested consumers with SEO.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the art and science of making enhancements to your website to influence its ranking in search engines, and ultimately drive traffic to your website. SEO increases visibility for searches with local intent through placement in local search results (i.e., Google’s places 3-pack) and delivers more search engine real estate for top business and category keywords. Our dedicated SEO analysts work with you to create a strategy, conduct regular reviews to ensure there is search visibility and site traffic, and provide ongoing insights and monthly performance reporting.
