    This is an 8″ w x 10″ h (768 x 960 pixel) graphic ad. You provide the graphic, or we can create it for you for an additional $20. Holiday theme is preferred but not required. Discount/offer not required (unless you want).

  3. Two-Page Article $125
    Professionally written article about your business, with images. You can provide suggestions and photos or provide the full article. We will provide a preview prior to publication.

The guide will be released in on November 15th and will be heavily promoted through 12/31.

    (ex. “Mention Discover Bradenton and receive 10% off your order. Cannot be combined with any other offers. Expires 12/31/2022)

    It doesn’t have to be a big discount! You can do something like $5 off, free gift wrapping, a special discount day, or a free gift with purchase — feel free to use your imagination! (Note, if you purchase a full-page ad or article, you don’t have to include a discount — unless you want to!)
