Initially I was very skeptical of spending part of my limited ad budget on advertising in media directed to our ethnic communities, but that is history now. I’ve gotten more business from Ethnic Media than any other advertising I’ve done in my career. Consistent advertising really works! I’m glad I didn’t dismiss the opportunity.
From the beginning, there was no question that we would place our advertising in «7 Days» and «Cikagos Aidas» and on their respectable websites. Advertising with Ethnic Media outlets has provided us direct contact with our key demographic. Your newspapers are the first place people turn for important local news as well as seeking various services. The ads are working perfectly! I love how these guys have mastered such a user friendly way of advertising. I’m impressed!
Ethnic Media outlets have proven to be a very valuable - and affordable - connection to the community. I know my advertisement in their newspapers and websites is working because clients frequently mention it by name. By having a platform to write articles on important health issues geared towards real people and also my name and picture in the ad with a newspaper coming out each week, the public is seeing me and my message over and over again. I find that when I speak to someone new, they recognize my name and face which brings instant credibility.
I have used the advertising services of Ethnic Media for 20 years now and we have built very good working relationships along with a fantastic rapport. The staff here always goes the extra mile to ensure they give me the service I require. I am now extremely busy as a result of advertisements and promotions I had in Ethnic Media. I will continue to use their services for many years to come due to the value for money and excellent personnel service provided.
I first became familiar with «Cikagos Aidas» in the community where I live. I had seen «Aidas» available in local restaurants and other places and was drawn to the paper for a couple of reasons, mainly the quality - strong colors of the print naturally grab your attention. More importantly, you are drawn to it because you are likely to see a picture of your neighbor or perhaps someone else you know and all the important local news. This gives a strong sense of community and as a businessman I see an opportunity there. I know our people read this newspaper and I know they see our ads - and this is the chief reason I advertise in «Cikagos Aidas». Plus, with a great discount system we were able to get an opportunity to advertise our services in Russian newspaper «7 Days», we have ability to provide services to new community more business meant more money and that is the great investment. Like other businesses, my advertising money is limited - and this is where I want to spend it, because I get the results.
We truly appreciate Ethnic Media advertising services. It is nice to know that we have an ally who understands our business model and our needs, and who has the right media tools to deliver the goods. We have amazing working process that saves us money and frees up more of our time to concentrate on other parts of the business.
I would like to share with other businesses the value of advertising with Ethnic Media Greater Chicago Area. Advertising dollars as we all know are precious and we have got to use them wisely. I swear by those guys! Also, the sales and design staff have always been incredibly responsive and helpful, making the process as smooth as possible - and that is a major plus in my book!
Elegance is not the abundance of simplicity. It is the absence of complexity.
Printing your way to success.
