In the August edition of Southwest Florida Business Today we are featuring a “Trade Show In Print”: a showcase of business services and products owners need to run their operations.
So “join us at the trade show” by either purchasing an ad or contributing a guest column. Or perhaps you would like to insert an 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch flyer. Ad prices appear below. There is no charge for guest column submissions: they are published on a space-available basis.
This special section gives you the forum to reach out to 6000 businesses (that’s almost 25,000 readers!) throughout Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Estero, Bonita Springs and Naples with your business message.
Guest column guidelines are as follows. First, we’re looking for original material. Second, it must have a local angle and written for the business owner/operator. Third, we would like a 20-30 word “mini-bio” of the author and we will print that in the byline in addition to contact information. If you have a photo we can use, that would also be appreciated. The average column is around 500 words, but we are open to something more in-depth as well.
Once again I am offering the special business card rate of $59 for ads that fit the theme to run in this FocusFeature. You can also double the size of this ad at a cost of $118. Or you can add 4-color to either of these ads for an additional $30.
Other ad prices and sizes include:
Full page: $749 (10 in wide by 16 in deep)
Half page: $479 (10 in wide by 8 in deep or 5 in wide by 16 in deep)
Quarter page: $299 (10 in wide by 4 in deep or 5 in wide by 8 in deep)
Eighth page: $189 (5 in wide by 4 in deep or 2.5 in wide by 8 in deep)
Sixteenth page: $109 (5 in wide by 2 in deep or 2.5 in wide by 4 in deep)
Add full color to the above ads for $50.
Business Card: 3.25 in wide by 2 in high
Send all ad files to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need the specs, you can find them here.
You may also insert your one or two-sided flyer in to all 6000 newspapers for $500, or zone them for $200 per zone. Flyers must be delivered to our mailing house by Monday, July 17. Contact Karen Moore at email@example.com for details.
Take advantage of this opportunity to showcase YOU and YOUR BUSINESS–it’s coming up fast with a guest column deadline of 5 pm Wednesday, July 12: ad space and proof deadline is Friday July 14.
