Dear Advertiser: Do You Want To Know How Your Competitor Just Saved $5,850 On His Advertising Budget This Year? Would You Like To Save $5,850 on YOUR Advertising Budget This Year Too? Read On To Learn More. CONCEPT With a weak economy people are staying home and watching TV. What better time to launch our new family-friendly MarketStar Shopper? It is your ideal advertising product because we provide FREE Weekly TV Listings. Everyone will want a copy. Your key benefits: 1) reach your target customers where they shop and 2) very affordable rates. With the shopper’s week-long shelf life your ad will be seen many times - by the entire household. Keep your name in front of your customers on a weekly basis. Plus, when they pick up the shopper your customers will actually opt-in to see your message every week! DISTRIBUTION We have arranged with Dominion Distribution to place our shopper in exclusive, proven and high traffic locations such as Pick ‘N Save, Sentry, Walmart, Sam’s Club, K-Mart and Big Lots. We Reach Your Customers Where They Shop. STICKY - SHARED - LONG SHELF LIFE The MarketStar Shopper is your very best advertising value in the Milwaukee area. This new shopper is “sticky” - it stays in the house for a full week. It is shared by everyone in the household and looked at often. The shopper is delivered and available on Fridays and is good from Sunday to Saturday. The Free TV Listings covering one full week give it a very long shelf life. Do you know of another publication that can offer you the benefits of being sticky and shared with a week long shelf life at equally affordable prices? FREE TV LISTINGS - FUN PUZZLES In addition to our FREE TV listings which are arranged in a user friendly and easy to read grid format, the MarketStar Shopper also includes perennial favorites such as a crossword puzzle, sudoku, trivia, quotes, quips, jokes and riddles. There is also a professionally produced movie guide and a “daily best bets” column. We are sure that these popular features will provide ample reason for your customers to pick up the shopper every week. Why not? It’s FREE. FREE CONSUMER CLASSIFIED ADS Did you know that the number one reason given for picking up any kind of paper is to read the classified ads? It’s true. So, we decided to capitalize on human nature and put human nature to use for our advertiser’s benefit. The MarketStar Shopper accepts FREE CONSUMER CLASSIFIED ADS for goods valued under $200. The twist, though, is that all of these free ads are randomly distributed throughout the shopper rather than located in one convenient area. We train our readers to look at every page! That’s great news for you: your ad is sure to be seen. CASH PRIZES - IMPRESSION BUILDING CONTEST We knew when we were designing the MarketStar Shopper that we would include a weekly contest. However, we wanted to make sure that the contest would significantly benefit our advertisers. We wanted to find a way to make sure everyone who would be participating in the contest would actually READ every single ad. After all, that’s why you place your advertising with us – to get your customers to read your ad copy. And ultimately, to buy stuff from you. Right? So, after much thought, we hit on the idea of a find the secret “phrase that pays” contest. HOW IT WORKS: We randomly select 4 winners (yes, 4 winners) of a $25 prize (cash or equivalent) from all correct contest entries submitted during the week. In order to win the prize, contestants must fill out our coupon and mail it to us. Contestants provide their name, address and phone number and they must correctly identify the advertiser and page number where they found the words “you found the phrase that pays.” We deliberately selected a “secret phrase” contest in order to ensure that contestants would have to read your ads. The obvious benefit to you is that your impression rate will go up. When you advertise with us you agree to participate in the contest and allow us to unobtrusively, on a periodic basis, drop the phrase that pays into your ad. Winners are listed in the shopper each week. As a bonus, all of the contestant data collected is available for purchase. We think that this is a win-win for everyone. DYNAMIC AD PLACEMENT Another innovation we’re proud of is dynamic ad placement: every ad moves within the shopper from week to week. Your ad will never be stuck languishing in the back of the book simply because you weren’t one of our first 200 advertisers. We believe that having the ads move every week makes the shopper fresh and interesting for your customers and ensures that every advertiser is treated fairly, regardless of when you place your ad with us. PUT YOUR GLASSES AWAY! - NO TINY ADS! We looked at a great many other publications when we were designing the MarketStar Shopper and the one conclusion that we came to was: NO TINY ADS! We don’t believe that miniscule (unreadable!) ads give value to our advertisers and because they’re just plain hard to read people skip them. Tiny ads are just a waste of your advertising dollars. Therefore, we have proportioned our MarketStar Shopper ad sizes to be readable AND affordable. (Continued on page 15)

Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you're doing, but nobody else does. ~ Stuart H. Britt Advertisements contain the only truth to be relied on in a newspaper. ~ Thomas Jefferson I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second. ~ Steven Wright
10 Reasons to Advertise 1. Advertising works! Billions of dollars spent annually are proof of this. 2. Frequent advertising helps you beat your competition. 3. People desire what they want but buy what they need. Advertising turns wants into needs. 4. Consumers prefer to learn more about products through advertising. 5. Buyers are always more aware of the most aggressively marketed products and businesses. 6. If there is less business out there you have to fight harder to get it and to keep it. 7. Success breeds success. Advertising gives the impression you are doing well. 8. Advertising is an effective educational sales tool and helps close the sale. 9. Reassures buyers they have made a good decision and helps avoid buyer’s remorse. 10. If business is slow and you cutback on promotion will this result in increased sales?

1. You’re Open. You still turn your lights on; why not invite people in? If you are open for business at all, you must market that business. 2. Opportunity. When the advertising pool gets smaller, your visibility increases along with your odds of being the vendor of choice and seizing market share from your competitors. 3. Reliability. Media mix is a desirable goal except during tough times when you need to rely more heavily on your base medium: print media. 4. Proven Results. During tough times, your advertising needs to be focused on ROI and not other nice options. Print media advertising is a proven ROI vehicle. 5. Fish Where the Fish Are. Print media offers the best local reach and that means that print media is the first place to look for con-
sumers for your services. 6. Tough Customers. Be among the considered choices. Print media is the marketplace for consumers and if you aren’t there, you may not be considered as a choice for those who are buying. 7. Credibility. Advertising in a credible medium is an indication that you are credible as well. 8. Bravado. Never show your fear. Advertising
indicates confidence in your business. 9. Convert Wants into Needs. During tough times, consumers buy what they need and not merely what they want. It is up to you to convince consumers they need what you offer. 10. Start the Funnel. Even if customers are not buying today, advertising is your opportunity to start people thinking about what is important to buy and where they should buy it. It will pay off later.

FINALLY – AFFORDABLE COLOR! We take a fresh approach to color pricing in the MarketStar Shopper. We believe that adding FULL color to an ad should be an affordable option for everyone. Color makes the whole shopper look great and it allows the most creativity for our advertisers. Now you CAN have an eye catching, attractive full color ad at your current ad budget. Finally! WE MAKE IT SIMPLE Take a look at our rate card. You will immediately notice three things: 1) Our rate card is easy to understand. 2) Our pricing is affordable. 3) Our programs are simple. In fact, our advertising rates are so affordable that you could run a full-page full color ad for a full year for just $325 per week! From the research that we have done around the area we know that our prices are not only very affordable, they are also extremely competitive. Obviously, we offer our best value pricing to our advertisers with the longest advertising commitment; however, even our shortest print run is very affordable. We did this for two reasons: First, we want you to be able to afford to advertise with us. And second, we want you to be successful – so that you will KEEP advertising with us. OUR COMMITMENT: WE WILL NOT WASTE YOUR ADVERTISING DOLLARS Countless studies by respected market research firms have proven repeatedly that an advertising message must be seen at least 6 times in order to generate a sale or influence an action. Therefore, we won’t waste your ad budget on short and ineffective ad runs. Our policy is that every ad must run for a minimum of 13 weeks. Period. If you can’t commit to 13 weeks we will not waste your time or money. Period. The main reason for our 13 week minimum ad commitment is that we want you to succeed. However, in order to keep your message fresh, we encourage you to change your ad. We also encourage you to test, track and fine tune your ads to see which ads produce the best results. Please speak with your sales representative for ideas on how best to do this in order to maximize your ROI. IN GOD WE TRUST - EVERYONE ELSE PAYS <CASH> We made an agreement with the Bank: they won’t sell advertising and we won’t lend money. Seriously, everyone in business knows that one of the biggest reasons for high prices is the cost of bad debt and collections. We decided to avoid the risks and hassles of bad debt. Instead of funding a collections department we decided to roll those savings into affordable advertising rates with the caveat: all ads must be prepaid. Just like you can’t put the Genie back in the bottle, we can’t unprint an issue. Therefore, it only makes sense that we will only run ads that have been prepaid. EARLY BIRD OFFER I would like to personally invite you to be one of our first advertisers in the MarketStar Shopper. Please review our rate card. We’re sure you’ve already decided it would be a great idea to advertise with us. So, why not take advantage of our Early Bird Advertiser Special Bonus: sign and pay for your advertising contract while we are in pre-publication and we will give you FREE COLOR with your initial ad commitment on ANY SIZE AD PLUS an Additional 15% Discount. Your Savings Could Be As Much As $5,850! Wow! Plus, if you’re not happy with your ad results we will gladly issue a pro-rated refund for the unused weeks. What could be more fair? LIMITED TIME OFFER Space is filling up fast! This is an exclusive and limited time offer that is subject to withdrawal at any time. It will only be available until we distribute our first issue. Call our office at 414-255-8700 to schedule a meeting with your advertising representative.
