Page 2A To Do List: promote your event, drive attendance

3-30-2015 1-27-28 PMHow does your day look today? Busy, right? This calls for careful planning.

Thousands of Camera readers turn to the Page 2A To Do List when they are planning their day. Page 2A is the concise, daily list of What’s What (and the Whens and Wheres) in Boulder. I think of it as “the place to watch if you want to know what makes Boulder special.”

If you are planning an event and want to get the word out quickly, we have a way to put your ad front and center for our readers when they are looking for things to do.

The Camera’s To Do List ad is dedicated exclusively to events, like art shows, festivals, lectures, classes, tastings, trunk shows, outdoor and sporting events.

The high visibility location is designed to drive attendance, and drive it quickly.

Your investment of only $280 also includes a posting and tweet to the Camera’s 74,000+ (and growing) Facebook fans and Twitter followers.

Call 303.473.1400 to schedule your To Do List ad three days prior to publication (pending availability). You can purchase up to three insertions per month for your event.

You’ll like the eventful results!

It’s easy to vote. Watch for a copy of the 2015 CU & Boulder’s Best ballot in the Colorado Daily, or vote online at coloradodaily.com/vote. Online voting ends on Sunday, March 22, so get clicking and start picking!
You could win, too: all participants will be entered into a random drawing for a grand prize of $250. That would (kind of) make you the “Best Voter,” wouldn’t it?
Vote now, and then look for the winners on Monday, April 27 in the “CU and Boulder’s BEST” keepsake edition inside the Colorado Daily.

Happy birthday Daily Camera: 124 and better than ever

The Camera became a daily newspaper on March 17, 1891. The name Camera was adopted because our founders envisioned a publication with more illustrations than most newspapers of that time.
We’ve been honing our vision and changing to fit the needs of our community ever since. The Camera started as a morning daily, changed to an afternoon Monday through Saturday paper in 1893, and hit our stride as a morning daily again in 1981. Ours was one of the first local newspapers to publish online in 1996.
During the course of the Camera’s long history, we’ve been owned by entrepreneurs, families, and corporations. But the truth of the matter is, our heart and soul have always belonged to this community. We were, are, and always will be your No. 1 news source.
The Camera has delivered your news and supported our shared community for 124 years now. These are points of personal pride to us. And though we certainly don’t look the same as we did 100, 50 or even one year ago, our mission remains the same: To deliver essential, informed and relevant news to our readers and unparalleled business opportunities to our advertising clients.
It feels good to be another year wiser. We’re looking forward to the next 124.

Spring gets us outdoors and active, but first… we shop

Spring officially starts this Friday. It’s time to open up the windows again and kick out the winter blues!

Of course, we’re not waiting for the starting bell. We’re already thinking about gardening, landscaping, bathroom and kitchen remodels, or perhaps getting some new carpet throughout the house.

If you’re a business owner who sees a jump in spring sales, now’s the time to get the word out.

We have a whole family of print and online products just right for reaching your customers efficiently and affordably.

Sporting goods retailers can capitalize on several high-visibility events, such as MLB’s opening day and the Masters Golf Tournament, to build interest in gear and sportswear.

Gardening and landscape centers can use the momentum of Earth Day to help get their customers outdoors with tools, plants, bird feeders, and more.

And of course, there’s St. Patrick’s Day, with 127 million people planning to celebrate the traditional day and spending an average of $36.52. That’s a lot of green flying around, and you want to catch some of it.

We’re ready to help you make your spring sales bloom. Call 303.473.1400 to get started.

You can help seniors take part in community life

Growing older can get lonely at times. For seniors in Boulder County, living on a fixed income often means they can’t take part in the heartbeat of community life.
Circle of Care, a Boulder County nonprofit, works to unite generations with the Seats for Seniors program. Volunteer performance companions share arts, culture and educational experiences with seniors, building meaningful, supportive relationships. The program is the first of its kind and has received a National Best Practice award from the MetLife Foundation and Partners for Livable Communities in Washington, DC.
Now you can help, too. Just do your grocery shopping on Tues., March 17  at Ideal Market and five percent of your purchase will be donated to help Boulder County senior citizens.
You can also help seniors’ access to healthy foods by purchasing an Ideal Market/ Whole Foods gift card, which will be distributed to vulnerable seniors.
To learn more about Circle of Care, contact Joan Raderman, founder and director of Circle of Care, at 303.358.4300 or joan@circleofcareproject.org. Joan is a Daily Camera Pacesetter Awards recipient, and we support Circle of Care and the Seats for Seniors program.
