Just like you, we had to start somewhere, so we understand the entrepreneurial spirit of a do-it-yourself mentality.

The longer we live in an area, the more we feel organically connected to our community, but we sometimes struggle to feel connected with our immediate neighbors. Local businesses are always looking for an effective way to get in front of you and your neighbors. A neighborhood magazine is a great way to feature families, share success stories and raise awareness of community-wide issues. Did you know that you can probably get your neighborhood magazine sponsored? That’s right!
A great way to share positive stories, news and pictures from local events. Your mayor, city officials and local government will be eager to provide free content through press releases, etc. A community magazine reflects the values of residents and small businesses. It is also a great outlet to share local history. We’ll show how it’s done and guide you through the process until you can fly on your own OR we can handle the bulk of it for you. Why not be the one who finally takes action on behalf of your community?
