The Country Register is a statewide, bimonthly specialty newspaper that offers low-cost but highly effective advertising and promotion to Country, Victorian, Hand-crafts, Antique, Specialty Gift shops and related businesses. The paper is travel-oriented and aimed at shoppers who like to spend a day - or longer - strolling the shops. We have found that the statewide concept is the best method of promotion for our advertisers. It works because it is carefully targeted to reach the people who are already interested in similar shops and it encourages travel.
The Ohio Country Register is the third oldest of a network
of over 55 independently owned and published newspapers. The national name and networking really works in attracting out-of-state readers. We get a surprising number of requests from people who want to plan their trip around visits to shops and shows.
Each advertiser receives an allotment of papers that they distribute free to their customers. In this way you can be sure that your ad is being seen by people all over Ohio who are already interested in your business. The printing number varies somewhat from issue to issue because it is tied to the number of advertisers and is currently around 45,000 and more.
You may have your ad designed locally and submit it camera ready, or we will be glad to do it for you at no charge. We have plenty of clip art available to use but also offer original hand drawn artwork for ads (at a slight additional cost) and sometimes this helps to make your ad more distinctive.
We also do articles about the regular advertisers. An "Article Questionnaire" is used as the basis for the writing and an interview by phone or in person is done if needed. You are also welcome to submit your own articles about your shop or a specialty topic that would be of interest to the readers.
If any other questions are presented during the preparation of your ad, just give us a call. The Country Register is always pleased to promote your business.
We look forward to doing business with you.
