Here we are looking at May–when the nation celebrates small business and its contribution to the growth of the U.S. economy. And here in Southwest Florida, you can be a part of Southwest Florida Business Today’s (SWFBT) 12th Annual “Salute To Small Business” FocusFeature in our upcoming May edition, delivered by May 1. Whether you’re a small, medium or large organization in this region, be a part of this special tribute to Small Business.
This is an excellent opportunity to let our over 35,000 in-print and online readers know what your business has to offer them. Distribution is to banks and businesses-doing-business-with-other-businesses located in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs and Naples. SWFBT is the only local publication solely devoted to the needs of the local business owner/operator. There’s two ways available to you to educate area business people more fully about your business in this special edition. One way is to write a guest column about your business, at no charge to you. The second way is through traditional advertising. While there is no charge for guest columns, they run space-available.
Guest column guidelines for this issue are as follows. First, we’re looking for original material. Second, in this issue it can be written by business owners/operators about their businesses. Third, we would like a 20-30 word “mini-bio” of the author (or the company) and we will print that in addition to contact information. If you have a headshot or company photo we can use, that would also be appreciated. The guest column for this issue should be around 300 words. Please send your guest column submission to firstname.lastname@example.org . It is due by 5pm W 4/10.
Regular (non-themed) guest column submissions are also welcome.
Keeping in mind that we’re all trying to “stretch our budgets,” I am also offering the special black-and-white business card rate of $59 for this edition.
