FRASER COAST COMMUNITY SERVICES DIRECTORY CLOSES SOON


Have you booked your advertising in the
2009 Fraser Coast Community Services Directory & Resident Information Guide?

book-question-red-blue

DEADLINE – MONDAY 11 MAY

Bay Connect will be producing the new 2009/2010 Community Services printed Directory for the Fraser Coast regional Council and would like to offer to all advertisers a choice of advertising packages offered this year. This book is the one council will use for the NEW RESIDENTS pack as well as being available at the information centres and community centres throughout the Fraser Coast. In previous years the production has been 10,000 copies. This year the production to cover the Fraser Coast region is 30,000 copies and will include Maryborough, Tiaro and Woocoo. Its the first book supplied by council and information centres to cover all needs for a new or even a existing resident of this area.

The costs vary from $550.00 for a half banner ad up to $ 1870.00 for full page. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD PACKAGE INFORMATION
See page two of the Advertising Package Information for full costs and the 7 options from which to choose.

The book is being redesigned to allow advertising on the bottom of each of the community services pages, which will have a better inpact on your advertising dollar. There will be of course the special single pages, half pages etc as before but stragetically placed for best viewing.

We can also offer a plan of the book – for example – there is a parks and gardens section – perhaps if you had a landscaping business or a nursery you might like to place your ad there or a event page – perhaps a hire company or party planner might like that spot. If your business relates to the aged and aged care facilities, perhaps a banner ad within that section would be to your advantage.The front pages with all the council information still has ad placements even available.

Have a look at the package we have prepared for you, and if you have any questions please feel free to ring me at the office or on my mobile ( 0409 269 260 -) and I can organise a consultant out to see you at a time suitable to you.

If you feel you might like to confirm you place straight away, you can send a email or fill out the 2009 Booking form at the bottom of page 2 and even posted or faxed it to us. We will need your logo and possible artwork as soon thereafter for our graphic artist to prepare your ad for approval.We have till Mid may to slot in all the advertisers in the New residents booklet.

We hope you will support the new style of magazine and at the same time support an unfunded – not for profit group – as this magazine is a way of continuing our program.

Regards,

Karen Chatfield
