The day that it comes out, usually through the weekend, we notice a good spike in customers because they’re bringing in the flier, and they’re asking for the promotions and they’re looking for the deals that we’re advertising – and they’re coming through the door. And once we taper-off and we’re not advertising we notice it quiets down, the phone doesn’t ring as much. Mike Medina, Owner - Halloween Land
“For us to pair Chicago Tribune print advertising with online we just feel that really maximizes things for us. The print ads will reach one section of our potential guest demographic - but to pair that with an online presence, where the artwork mimics our print ad, where it clicks through directly to our website - it gives people more information about our events and upcoming schedule.” Rachel Gilmore, Marketing & PR Coordinator - Frankfort Historic Business Association
“Working with the Tribune and working with the creative part of the agency really help tie everything together.

We’ve changed other things around, tried other options, but the Tribune is the only media we’ve had the entire time.” Rich Bennett, Owner - PK Bennett Jewelers

“We decided to use the EZ Target during our most recent lease-up in the northern suburbs of Chicago. The insert program was a terrific substitute for direct mail, which can be expensive and produce little response. Our rep for Tribune/ advised us on an effective geographical area and discussed a design concept for the inserts. After agreeing on a date for placement, we had a draft design back within a week and were able to finalize art quickly. For about one-third the price of a direct mail campaign, we distributed about 28,000 inserts and ordered an overrun of about 1,000 to give away at the property and at community events. The inserts continue to “come back to us…” – people had saved them and they were an effective way to generate awareness in the apartment community.” Steve Matre, Director - Banner
