2017-18 Floyd Visitor Guide Highlights
- 75,000 copies to be printed (vs 30,000 for the original printing of the 2015-16 guide)
- For only twice the advertising cost without the early bird discount
- With more listing space for every advertiser
FORMAT: This new edition will be the same size as the current one, a 4" x 9" size in the form of a small booklet with a center spine. The major difference will be a paragraph format listing for each advertiser. Each listing will have the business name in bold with the business location, website and phone number plus a 20-word description. For comparison, the current guide offered business name plus three 35-character lines. Each advertiser will have a map marker number with their listing with a corresponding marker number for their location on the town or county map in the guide. The display ad sizes will remain the same with quarter-page, half-page and full-page options available. The Guide will remain undated for a longer shelf life.
