Print Advertising

What is TidBits?

It is simply the most cost effective print media advertising solution in the Mid-Columbia area.  It is a free trivia-based weekly newspaper that is distributed at local restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores throughout the area.  We have hundreds of stands reaching the following cities: Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, Benton City, West Richland, Burbank, Prosser, Hermiston, and Pendleton.

Why is it so effective?

In a world dominated by the bad-news news media, people are often looking for something lighter and more entertaining.  Tidbits fits the bill and provides light-hearted mentally stimulating reading.

Imagine you are a sales person that must approach one of these two people:

Person A: is a sour faced person who just finished reading about the latest political train wreck, the mounting debt crisis, and the most recent article about crimes against children.

Person B: is relaxing and reading interesting trivia, and funny news stories from around globe.

Now, which person would you most like to approach? Which person is most open-minded and able to listen to what you have to say?  Your print ads are just like mini-salespeople.  Presenting them to people that are in a relaxed and open-minded and inquisitive state is far more effective than the alternative

What does it cost?

Like most things in life, it depends.  Our experts can work within your buget to create a package that will deliver maximum value.

I have been utilizing Tidbits for over three years for a number of my clients. The response we have experienced has been very positive, from direct response to image and branding. Tidbits is a consistent and dominant paper in the Tri-Cities market and I plan to continue to utilize it for my clients.

If you can dream it up our creative production team can produce it – on time and within your budget!

Web Design & Hosting

Getting a business website up and running can seem like a daunting task.  Sure there are lots of really cheap do-it-yourself solutions out there.  But in all likelihood what is created isn’t what you really wanted and looks more like you let your 13-year old nephew design your site.  Spending thousands of dollar with a designer that may or may not eventually produce a website you are happy with isn’t a very attractive option for most clients either.

We offer you an attractive alternative.  A straightforward package based solution with no up-front costs and a professional look, that is also easy on the wallet.
