Breaking News -- February 28, 2020

Advertorials are back!

As part of our "surgical approach to households in Target Cities, we have the opportunity to work (again) with Minnesota Monthly, and - new this year - Minneapolis City Pages' Summer Outdoor Issue.

Our Writers' Super Team (Steve Harris and Alison Leathers & always watchful Bailey Otto - thank you all!! 🙏 😍) are already diligently working on 2020 article.

To recap the concept: Instead of a common, mainstream ad, we use an article page, where we list events, and sponsoring businesses within the copy - for a reader, it will look like a story in the magazine they are reading - those of you familiar with David Ogilvy will remember his famous, rule-breaking (at that time) ads

BUNDLE OPPORTUNITY (LACC negotiated value):

  • Minnesota Monthly May/June Issue: $3,200 ($6,300 value). Includes: 1 Full page advertorial, PLUS feature article (MNMO writer will be reaching out to us to include both comments as well as photos within the story -- for reference, please see attached pictures from last year) PLUS a spot in their (hic!) Summer Bucket List 2020 Insert
  • Minneapolis City Pages Summer Outdoor Edition: $1,500 ($2,200 value). Includes 2-page spread (page 1: advertorial, page 2: Lanesboro 2020 Events - for reference, please see attached pictures from Waterloo-Cedar Falls, IA last year issue) PLUS a digital ad (30,000 impressions on citypages.com)
Our cost: $4,700 ($8500 value) 


To make this financially and mutually beneficial, if we can top or surpass the unprecedented participation from last year (27 businesses/sponsors), each of us will pay $170 (BUNDLE of TWO Magazines!) - the more businesses we get on board, the price will start to drop (ex. 30 businesses = price drops to $156). ROI on it from value and exposure perspective is high.

Optionally, for additional $50, you will be named in our "Promotional Support" Sponsor area (see picture) IN CITY PAGES OUTDOOR ISSUE (2-page Spread with Calendar of Events)

There is more: in 2019 we republished our article in Fillmore County Journal, Iowa's Waterloo-Cedar Falls Summer issue and Iowa Sportsman -- by committing to this Bundle of 2 Magazines for $170 by March 5th, you will get placement AT NO ADDITIONAL COST in all 2020 Advertorials (= this means, if this Bundle Article/Advertorial runs in an additional magazine/s in 2020, it will appear FREE OF CHARGE).

‼️⏱ DEADLINE: THU, MARCH 5th! ⏱‼️

Please spread the word and act swiftly!
