This weeks speaker Kelly Spadorcio from Vacaville Reporter was introduced and she began by giving a brief history of her experience and then began to introduced some of the products that she has to offer in a few of advertising offers. She first passed out a sample of a full page ad from the Dixon Chamber Spotlight and explained how in this presentation several business could be featured as well as provide a central theme for an informational calendar. This listing could be produced in many different sizes depending on the requirements of the client.She also passed out the rate card for this listing. She then went on to passed out a booklet insert called ‘Around Town’ and explained the many different ads that could be placed in this format. This book is unique in that this offering stays with the end user for a longer period of time leaving your ad to be seen over a longer period of time as apposed to a newspaper listing which would last for a day. Donny questioned her about the DNA possibly advertising in one of these formats and Kelly thought that the ‘Around Town’ might be a good fit for what he had in mind. She said she would put together a proposal and get back to him. Several questions were asked and answered and Kelly was thanked for her nice presentation.
