Multimedia platform — online, email, and print
We publish a website that is updated daily, send out 100 email news updates a year, and print a full-color newsletter 8 times a year. Our web publication has 400,000 visits a year, our emails go out to 20,000 recipients twice a week, and our newsletter has more than 3,000 paid subscribers.
Our audience is both targeted and broad, and our content is accessible without being dumbed-down. Our coverage is positive, authoritative, and useful. An important way to reach this audience and get your message out in this fractured communication environment is through a multimedia platform that is unified and reinforced like Better! Cities & Towns.
In this field, there is nothing else quite like it.
We offer several multimedia packages at various price levels. Space is limited. Better! Cities & Towns web publication and emails will be launched in December 2011, while the newsletter is due for January 2012.
