Approximatly $280.00 was spent on ads that ran on Sunday and Wednesday in the Paladium-Item.
A large ad (3 1/2" x 2 column) ran on Sunday, February 1, with a 1 2/" x 2 column ad running February 4, 8, 11, 15, 18, 22, 25. We also received a nice article written by Bill Engle on Friday, January 30.
Due to the high cost of the large Sunday ad ($111 for one day!), my intention is to run the smaller 1 1/2" ad (perhaps a different version) on Sundays in March. That is the largest coverage day and since Monday is our day with the most hits - it makes sence to get our name and URL out there for people to check on at the begining of the week.
Thursday appears to be the least visited day (Jerry Seinfeld night!) so I don't see a compelling reason to continue the Wednesday ads after our first "blitz".
Check out a sample here. My plan, once it's up and running, is to post the past week, month, quarter, and yearly reports on the web for members to review. Most potential members I have met with have asked questions regarding our hits/visitors, etc.
