It’s when your competitors stop.

When’s the best time to advertise?

Why? Because when your name is the only one out there, it’s your phone that will likely ring first. Your Web site that will likely be clicked on. Your store that will likely be visited. When times are tough, advertising is one of the first expenses to be cut. But savvy business owners understand that keeping their name before the public is key to keeping their business afloat. They also know that newspapers are the most trusted advertising medium, next to word-of-mouth.* It’s a fact: Advertising works. And newspaper advertising works best. But only if you do it.

Become a patron of the arts!

› Thanks to Collingswood Community Theatre supporters who responded to the Ten Lousy Bucks campaign, the theatre company was able to stage a fabulous 2011 season. Now it’s almost 2013. Members of the Collingswood Community Theatre still hate asking people for money ... but they also can’t argue with success! They have embarked a new Ten Lousy Bucks campaign in an effort to raise $5,000 for their upcoming productions and help fund the replacement of worn theatre seats. Make a $10 donation, and you’ll be listed on the community theatre’s Web site and in the show programs (you’ll even be considered a VIP). Send more than $10, and you’re name will be listed in bigger print! Tax-deductible donations can be made at
