Advertisers say Greenlight coupons are “a brilliant idea”

Our monthly GreenLight coupon package is a powerful way to grow your sales and turn occasional customers into frequent shoppers. Greenlight coupons are ready to use however your customers want: print, digital, and optimized for mobile.
We’ve been hearing a lot of great comments from our Greenlight advertisers. Here are just a few:
“We get steady calls off our coupon book ad. I’m happy to recommend this product,” says Mitch Chesney, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard.
“We are very pleased with our response from the coupon book. It helps us compete and brings in new customers,” reports Pam Stathis, manager of Perkins Restaurant.
“We decided to advertise in the coupon book in our off season… what a brilliant idea. We have had an increase in sales by more than 8 percent,” says Paula and Mark Scheil, Inn on Fall River in Estes Park.
GreenLight coupon books are distributed monthly to three market zones. You can target your audience, or cover the market in all three zones across Boulder County.

It turns out, most politics really are local

The election season is upon us, and the conversation has begun. If you are involved with any kind of political or cause-based promotion, you want to have a place at this table.
Here’s a thought: We’re taking part in a national election, but most of the voting on our ballots will pertain to local candidates or initiatives. It’s true: politics really are local.
Eighty-six percent of voters who cast ballots in the last local election got their news and information  about candidates and initiatives from local news media.
Our readers are active, thoughtful citizens who contribute to our community. They have a strong interest in our government on a local, regional and national level. These are the influential people you want to reach the most at election time.
The Camera is your one-stop marketing headquarters to help you reach your constituency in print, mail and online. We offer full-service, traditional direct mail; behavioral and geo-targeted digital advertising and opt-in e-mail marketing. The Camera delivers thousands of registered voters in Boulder and Broomfield counties, targeted by zip, gender, age, household income and more.
We are your local, full-service digital, print and mail agency. Call 303.473.1400.

Two thirds of households say they have a family pet

Pet owners can get a bit partisan about their companion animals. More than 54 percent of reporting households in a recent survey are dog owners. Cat owners (really, do we ever own a cat?) came in at 42.9 percent, followed by fish fanciers (13.6 percent) and bird lovers (6.1 percent).
But what these pet owners have in common is that they are a mobilized bunch. 74 percent own a smartphone (versus 64 percent among the petless) and half use some kind of mobile app.
A few other findings:
• The majority of last year’s new pet owners are millennials.
• Two-thirds of households said that they have a least one pet in the family.
• One-in-three owners purchase pet products online.
Don’t spend your ad dollars barking up the wrong tree! Let us promote your pet-related business with our performance-driven ad solutions. We will help you get noticed first and stay top-of-mind among qualified pet owners when they are looking for your product or service.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate hard work

For most of us, today is about taking time away from our labors: relaxing with family and friends, going on that one last camping trip before fall starts in earnest, or hitting up holiday sales.
But before we fire up the grill, pull on our hiking boots or head to the store, let’s take a moment to appreciate what this day is all about.
Labor Day is a national tribute to the contributions of the American worker. You know, the roads we drive on, the homes we live in, or the customer service folks who aren’t taking today off.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my hard-working team, who go above and beyond the call of duty every day. They make it happen around here.
We are fortunate to be surrounded by countless dedicated, industrious people. Today is the day to let our neighbors know we appreciate their efforts.
Wherever your travels take you, I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day.

The power of words: It takes real people to tell a real story

Like most businesses today, publishing relies on technology to get the job done. But it still takes real people to provide knowledgeable, personal service. And when it comes to customer commitment, we have some of the “realest” people around.
I recently heard from Mara Lehnert, who is the executive director of three addiction recovery services. She wanted to share her experience working with one of our talented ad sales consultants, Dale Sekuler.
“I have been a CEO most of my adult life, and have worked with hundreds of people in all sorts of customer service roles,” Lehnert says. “Dale has been outstanding in all respects – her follow up, positive attitude, energy, compassion, attention to detail, creativity and ideas… I could go on and on.”
“Mara wanted to get her story and her addiction centers in front of our Boulder audience,” Sekuler explains. “I suggested that we write an advertorial for her. Working with editor Greg Stone and writer Rhema Zlaten, we published her story in the Daily Camera, Times-Call and Colorado Hometown Weekly. She has had an excellent response and already received more than 20 inquiries.”
Thank you, Mara, for sharing your story with us. And thank you to Dale, and everyone here who works hard to deliver our news products, seven days a week.

Locally Owned pages connect small biz with big markets

There are hundreds of locally owned businesses in Boulder County. Consumers welcome these independents for adding to our shopping options.
Most consumers understand the difference that shopping locally makes. For instance, 93 percent of consumers believe it’s important to support local businesses, and 73 percent consciously shop at small businesses because they don’t want them to disappear. Eighty-nine percent say that small businesses play an important role in our local economic well-being. Every dollar spent right here adds to our local tax base and sustains employment opportunities.
We have an effective, affordable way for small businesses to reach their customers. Locally Owned advertising pages help you welcome local-thinking customers to your business. Locally Owned publishes Monday in the Daily Camera and features a rotating spotlight of participating local businesses.
