Plan now for the 2018 Maine’s BEST Regional Guide
Summer has just gotten started but we are already planning ahead and many of our members seem to be doing the exact same thing. Calls and contracts have already come back to advertise in the 2018 edition of the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce guidebook as folks took advantage of the Membership Month 15% savings offer.
As many of you know the Maine’s Best Regional Guide is a hugely popular source of information for members, locals and visitors to our area. People drop in all the time to check out the yearly event calendar, take advantage of some of the day trip ideas, or to have a current business directory of all of the Chamber members at their fingertips. Each year we print 40,000 copies to be distributed all over New England from our two warehouse locations. Visitors pick up these guides at key locations like visitor’s centers, Chambers of Commerce, hotels, inns, and restaurants. Our office also will mail out hundreds of books in a season to folks from all over the world looking for information on our area.
Next month, those businesses who previously had ads in this handy guide will receive a copy of their ad, along with a note from us and an invoice to reserve their spot in the 2018 book. If you would like to run the ad that you used last year, by all means just send in your check and let us know that there are no changes and you will be all set. If you have changes to the size or content just let us know and we will help you get those changes made.
If you have not had an ad in previously but would like to have one, give us a call at 667-5584 and ask for Kristy or Becky. We would be glad to go over your options and make sure that you have a spot reserved. Or, wait for the August edition of the Chamber newsletter and you will find the 2018 contract insert. Fill that out and send it into us at 163 High Street, Ellsworth, ME 04605 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org .
