What are your deadlines?
Mark your calendar for the 10th of each month! Display ads, news briefs, natural directory listings, classifieds and calendar listings must be received by the 10th of the month prior to the desired month of publication. Requests for changes to existing ads also must be received via email by the 10th.
Can I run an ad for one month?
Advertising is an investment. Long-term ad campaigns generate brand awareness and allow us time to educate our readers about your business by using our multi-impression approach. With the exception of event promotions, we discourage one month ad contracts. If resources are limited, ask us about year-round exposure in our annual Healthy and Green Living Directory!
Do I have to pay for my whole ad contract up front?
When paying with a credit/debit card, advertisers are charged monthly for advertising. When paying by check, the total amount of the contract is due in full before the first ad is run.
Can you design an ad for me?
Yes, we are available to design your ad for a fee. We are also happy to give you feedback on the effectiveness of ads that you provide. Ad analysis and marketing advice are always free.
What if I still have questions?
Whether you are an experienced advertiser or new to the process, let us know how we can help. We are here for you seven days a week by phone or email. We will also gladly schedule a meeting to discuss opportunities in person.
