Monthly Advertising Advantages

To become a monthly advertiser, all you have to agree is: take out (at the minimum) 12 advertisements within a 12-month period. There are no size restrictions. From there, depending on your business, we can offer:

  • FREE inclusion in the Dine Out Directory, which is listed every week.
  • Your business profile to be featured in our newspaper (subject to availability – please discuss with our advertising consultant).
  • The opportunity in having your advertisement appear in colour at reduced rates when the occasion arises.
  • The opportunity to participate in relevant features when the occasion arises, again at reduced rates.
  • FREE artwork design, or you can use your own artwork.
  • The opportunity to direct us in making your advertisements work for you.

Weekly Advertising Advantages

A weekly advertiser places an advertisement in the Tarrangower Times every week for twelve months.
We offer the same advantages as listed above for monthly advertisers, but at further reduced rates. A monthly advertiser pays $3.30 per column centimetre, while a weekly advertiser pays only $2.40 per column centimetre. A weekly advertiser also appears FREE on our website.

Please contact Karen to discuss your advertising needs.
