Put your advertising dollars to work!
High quality publications combined with powerful circulation methods and affordable rates to provide advertisers an outstanding return on their advertising investment.
"Let your business meet our readers."
Our Readership Survey in late 2016 conducted over 13 weeks allowed time to yield a significant sample size. The survey was published in all four publications and readers responded both digitally and by mailed in hard copy. The data is presented as a percent of total to provide a profile of the Community News readership.
Our publications are distributed through 650 monitored newsstands, a virtual newsstand on the internet, and an online subscription e-blast. All three of these methods are “voluntary,” requiring readers to voluntarily choose to read a publication. This method has five unique attributes that make it better than traditional mass circulation methods of direct mail and home throw.
1. Guarantee 100% readership because each location is monitored weekly.
2. Find a better demographic, because it is a better demographic who choose to read publications.
3. Are the greenest way to circulate because no papers are wasted, fuel consumption is limited to 650 locations, and the virtual newsstand distributes virtual newspapers.
4. Grow readership over time because it takes about 57,000 people, picking up a newspaper occasionally, over time, that keeps 41,000 publications cleared off the stands.
5. Match the power of a 100,000 mass circulation method; not by throwing 100,000 papers onto yards or mailing 100,000 papers into mailboxes, but by delivering one paper, directly into the hands of 57,000 people who chose to pick it up and read it.

Our long term advertising relationship with Community News benefits the city's promotional efforts throughout the course of the year, especially given we host upwards of 100 events and festivals annually, However, we're most appreciative of this solid publicity connection in and around the St. Charles County area during the year-end holidays, when we celebrate our month long Christmas Traditions festival.
