What are Customers Saying?

"Thanks for all your help with our first online ‘Pet Parade Contest’. It was a great success, surpassing all our expectations! We used it as an added component to our annual print pet section. By adding the contest element, we were able to generate four times as much revenue as we have previously with only a print product. Working with you was a pleasure and the set-up and operation of the contest was easy. We’re already looking forward to our next contest." Nancy A. Reece, Classified Advertising Manager, Kentucky New Era, Inc.

"I was very happy with the assistance provided during our contest and the application was very user friendly and our contest went very smooth. I am looking forward to more partnerships in the future. We are a very happy customer."Tracy L Shively, Sales & Operations Manager, Chronicle-Tribune

"Our contests ran smoothly and the revenue we received was well worth the small amount of work it took to run. We will definitely do it again. "Kristin Johnson, Kokomo Tribune
