Advertising With The Jet Jotter Print
In our print issues, we offer a variety of options to promote your company, including:
- Print Ads
- Sponsored Stories
An insert can be taken out of the paper and typically garners more interest and exposure than printing your ad directly in the paper itself. An example of a recent insert that we printed in our January 2020 issue of the Jet Jotter:
For a full page double-sided color inserts, our prices are as follows:
- $370 for 1000 copies
- $190 for 500 copies
If your company or organization has ready-made inserts, in the form of handouts, brochures, etc., then you have the option of sending them to us to have them inserted into the paper. The prices for this option are as follows:
- $150 for 1000 copies
- $75 for 500 copies
In addition to inserts, we offer the option of having your ad printed directly within the paper. We offer four different ad sizes: full page, half page, quarter page, and 1/8th page.
- Full Page: $180
- Half Page: $75-95
- Quarter Page: $50-70
- 1/8 Page: $25-45
Full page ads are 10×16 and cost $180. There is only one ad that can run full page in our paper. It will likely be placed towards the last 4 pages of the newspaper. It will not be in color.
Half page ads are 8×10 and cost $75 for black-and-white and $95 for color. We do not run half page ads on our first page, but we do on the centerfold, which houses the most important and highly read stories of our issue, and the last page, often referred to as the “second first page.” Both will display your ad in stunning color.
Quarter page ads are 5×8 and cost $50 for black-and-white, $60 for color, and $70 for a first-page color ad. Color ads will run on high demand color pages (centerfold or last pages). First page color ads must be in banner format.
1/8 page ads are 4×5 and are $25 for black-and-white, $35 for color, and $45 for first page color. This is often referred to as the “business card” size.
We can design your ad and do your writing. Give us some pointers to include and our editorial team can work with you to design an ad that fits seamlessly with our content and draws eyes. For our January 2020 issue of the Jet Jotter, we designed this ad for The Kitchen, a restaurant at the Williams Street Plaza.
We also give businesses the opportunity to have a sponsored story written about an aspect of your company. We can send a student reporter to your business and use your purchased space to place to display their honest review of their experience. It will be clearly stated that the review was sponsored and the reporting must be done by one of our reporters. We can also write a proper news story on a given topic, for example: a story about alumni who chose the military instead of college – sponsored by a military local recruiter, or the benefits of private tutoring – sponsored by a tutor. For our February 2019 issue, we wrote a sponsored story for the United States Marine Corps in West Springfield, Massachusetts. This story covered the experiences of Staff Sergeant Daniel Ulich, and his journey in becoming a Marine and serving in the corps.
Combined Print and Online Ad Campaign
We offer the option for your company to have both a print and online ad campaign. This is the most effective way to reach your target audience and covers the widest range of reader demographics. This option will be discounted if you commit to both the print and online campaigns, and is the recommended option by the Jet Jotter Creative for all of your advertising needs.
We seriously hope that you consider the plethora of advertising opportunities that we provide here at The Jet Jotter. We are the primary source for all your advertising needs in the Longmeadow community.
