Trades & Services feature announced

In a major development a new Trades & Services feature has been announced for your local newspaper.

Managing editor Lucie Peart said this was an exciting opportunity for local businesses with the feature being designed to expand the reach - across the region - for local advertisers in both print and online.

“I am excited to announce that the new Trades & Services feature will be run across the company’s three newspapers,” Mrs Peart said.

“We are very much a locally focused newspaper, but we recognise that many business operators with trades and services do have customers who come from outside the local area. This might be people visiting town who may use a particular service or a business with tradesmen working across the region.

“Our local papers are reaching local people every week. We’re part of our communities. A recent survey found printed newspapers were considered an ‘essential service’ to their community by both print readers (86 per cent) and non-print readers (64 per cent),” Mrs Peart said.

Businesses can also take advantage of the opportunity for spot-colour advertisements. The single spot-colour choice will be set by the newspaper. All trades and services advertisers will also be listed on The Gilgandra Directory.

The easy-to-use (smart phone friendly) directory supports businesses with Google AdWords, actively advertising local businesses to customers searching on Google – right when they are looking for that particular service.

“Businesses will also be able to take advantage of some free editorial as part of their local promotion. “This is a true value package deal,” Mrs Peart said.

The feature will be published monthly. If you would like to find out more about this special promotion or have any questions about how we can help promote your business, please get in touch.
