Sponsored Articles – tell a story about your business
To enhance your advertising and exposure to our readers we will guarantee space in the newspaper for a 400 word (or less) article sponsored and written by you, and edited by us, when you place $500 of display advertising within a maximum of a 2 month (4 issue) time span. As a free newspaper we depend on advertising to continue printing the newspaper our readers enjoy and look forward to. We consider this opportunity to be mutually beneficial.
Don’t worry if you’re not a professional writer because we are, and we will make sure your article reads well before it goes to print. The only requirement is that the article must be submitted by the intended issue’s deadline in a word document. Photos should be submitted in a digital format, but are at the editor’s discretion whether the photo prints with the article.
Alternatively, if you are solely looking for an article that is not combined with display advertising, we accept any article length under 1,000 words with or without photos. The price is based on the space usage according to our standard display advertising rates. When you provide a sample of the article and photo sizes, we will provide a quote of the final price.
