Have FUN with this book! READ it! PARTICIPATE in the CONTESTS! USE it! The advertisers are paying to advertise - so THEY want it to work, too!
for the advertisers
I have created Local and Lovin' It Mini Magazine to reduce the cost of advertising for small businesses. As a small business myself, I could never come up with that $300-$1000 marketing budget. So, with my graphic design and marketing background, I created a piece and put my own price on it... just enough to cover the marketing fees - design, printing, circulation and distribution. The piece is also helping 8 nonprofits in the area this year - WIN-WIN! I guarantee you, if anyone would have come up with this in my past...I would have been on board every year!
Why should YOU get involved? 1. Because it is an attractive way to tell your businesses story and to keep your business in front of the community for a year! 2. Because it has a beautiful website included, that keeps all the businesses promoted daily and has links to all of them. 3. Because it is interactive with the community - with the jokes, recipes and Contests!!! AND 4. Because YOU can afford it!!!
You can contact us regarding advertising fees. They are not flat rates - some are seasonal, based on foot traffic, serve food, only drinks, etc. - BUT, they are LOW.
