We always advertise in RedEye to get the word out about our free classes and programs for the community. We know that this is an effective way to reach a wide variety of people and demographics, reaching those who live in the city, as well as suburbanites who work in the city and grab a RedEye to read on the train. Our RedEye sales representative is wonderful to work with - she always gets us what we need in a timely manner. Felicia Ross, Marketing Coordinator - Reform Jewish Chicago
“Over the past two years we have successfully used EZ Targets, targeting the general market through RedEye, and the Hispanic Market with Hoy Newspaper. We love the fact that we can geo target by zip code and reach our desired market.” Valerie Mirea, Media Buyer - Varicose Vein Solutions
“The event was super successful and the AdMail drew a lot of attendees. The event had a GREAT turnout – we had over 200 people show up throughout the night.” Morgan Bennett, Marketing Manager - Burton Snowboards
“It’s interesting how we have seen a spike the day of a RedEye ad, but especially the day after the ad comes out. I was thinking maybe this is because people grab the RedEye and read it on their way home, see the ad and then come in the next day. But either way, there seems to be results.” Jamie Revell, Director of Marketing - Women's Workout & Fitness
“RedEye has helped us generate strong sales during the Halloween season. We have a strong redemption rate for the coupons placed in our ads.” George Garcia, Owner - Fantasy Costumes
