Hello, ACT partners!
Congratulations on the success of the San Francisco Chronicle insert, published Sunday, February 9th. Our sales representative enjoyed working with you and said we were the easiest to work with, by far. Kudos. I have extra copies available, in the office for you to use in your businesses. I expect we can use this throughout the year to promote the area.
Our next opportunity is with Reno Gazette Journal. Please read the note below from our sales representative, Cinnamon Hunter, and attached is an example of the advertising display. We have a long-term commitment to Reno Gazette Journal that allows a cost-effective buy-in for you. We have seen an uptick in requests for planners from the
area, and an uptick in Reno
visitors, since we began advertising in December. ACT is committed to a full
page in Reno Magazine. If six businesses participate, we can have two full
pages and make a greater impression to their readership. We have advertised in
their Reno Magazine and Sierra Outdoors Adventures Magazine, so far. Next we
will publish in their Taste Magazine, which publishes seasonally. Your
participation makes this all work more powerfully, as you have already seen
with the San Francisco Chronicle.
Thank you for your support of our efforts. Please feel free to call or stop by, at any time with questions.

Hello Business Owners of
, Amador County
This email is an invitation for your business to be featured in
RENO Magazine is the Biggest Little City’s premier lifestyle magazine. With stories about
most fascinating people, social and charitable events and the latest trends,
it’s the essential guide the Reno
area. RENO Magazine speaks to the affluent customer. In ,
there are more than 89,500 affluent men and women older than 35 who have an
annual household income of more than $100,000. These people want to experience Washoe County Reno and its surrounding
areas and crave information that helps them find new ways to do so. RENO
Magazine’s audience enjoys a variety of leisure activities, like outdoor
adventures, pampering, shopping, travel, dining out, gambling and entertainment
like movies and concerts. They also ensure their future by consulting with
financial planners, Realtors and contractors before making major decisions
about investments or real estate. Each issue of RENO Magazine is read by 57,700
local adults. Our distribution is designed to reach affluent adults in Reno as we purposefully deliver RENO Magazine to affluent
neighborhoods and distribute RENO Magazine at 75 strategic locations throughout
the Reno area.
What’s in it for you? Your business can be featured in this high impact magazine for an extremely low cost!
A full page in RENO Magazine generally costs $2,295, however with this special offer I would like to help you feature 6 businesses to a page and I have negotiated for the cost of a full page featuring 6 business to be $975! (A savings of 42% off of our normal advertising rates.) Because we are fitting 6 businesses to a page, the cost per business, per issue to participate is only $162.50!
If you would like to see a visual sample from the real RENO Magazine, please reach out to Maureen as I have mailed her physical copies. I have attached a digital sample (see below) for your consideration. It is an example from our Reno Midtown cluster.
Please note, in order for the cluster page to be visually appealing and effective we do need to add businesses to this promotion in groups of 6. As you can see from the attached Midtown example though, if 12 businesses commit the results are really stunning and quite a statement. J
If you need further clarification on any of these details please call me directly and I would be happy to assist you. My normal office hours are Monday-Friday 9am – 5:30pm. I return all calls and emails within 24 hours of receipt, but generally sooner.

Amador Council of Tourism’s monthly board meeting is this Thursday, February 13th, 9am, at Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort’s Hotel conference room.
Attached (below) is the agenda and minutes from January’s meeting.
As you know we just published an insert in San Francisco Chronicle’s newspaper this past Sunday. I will be sending out additional co-operative advertising opportunities with Reno Gazette Journal and Folsom Lake Entertainer. I will send each in a separate email so that you can easily identify them in your in-box.
I am just returning from Los Angeles Travel & Adventure Show, the largest travel show in the
representing Gold Country Visitors Association. The attendance was amazing and
people largely knew who we were and wanted to plan a visit. United States
Please do contact the office with any questions you have. You are welcome to attend the meeting on Thursday.
