Was your business represented?


Make sure to take advantage of this program this year. Here are the details of the program:

Businesses are voted on by category with viewers given the opportunity to vote for their favorite by write in or listing vote. Help them decide by promoting your business on the ballot and through strategically placed advertising both on our site, on the ballot and in your own marketing. While purchasing advertising through us does organically enhance your chances of viewers voting, it is more about showing your brand and your info to every voter. For some local businesses this is one of the best ways to get their name in the public eye.

The entire program is promoted through our paper, website, and app as well as local chambers and social media.

Every year we have various ad packages available for both print and digital placement including the main category sponsors, sub category sponsors and featured listings that show up on the ballot. If you purchase a featured listing, voters even have the ability to SHARE their vote on social media. After the tabulation of the results, the articles and listings of the winners are online indefinitely providing you with a permanent and searchable listing of your accomplishment, not to mention the overall branding exposure.

This is a huge honor and one you can tout all year long after the results are released! 

Learn how you can participate and take advantage of the great advertising opportunities this year by contacting one of our ad representatives today.
