10-17-13 Meeting Minutes

We had another great meeting! I will get to the minutes later but for right now I want to talk about the advertising that was presented to us.

First the Froggy / WUZZ ad proposal.

There are 2 aspects to this. The first is the Froggy ads. Businesses would be set up in groups of 3. The ad would start out with a blurb about Shopping Downtown. Experience Christmas in Downtown Meadville. Then the Three 15 second ads. Then a closing blurb. The ads would run for 2 months, starting November 1st. The cost to each business would be $275.00. If we could get enough sets of 3 businesses then the Downtown would be advertised with every set of ads. We have to act on this very quickly. The ads would start running on November 1st. This is for 15 spots.

The second part of this package is called "Jingle Bell Rock"

Somewhere in Meadville, WUZZ would hide a rock with their logo on it. Each day they would give clues. If the customer misses a clue, he or she has to come to come into one of or stores to get that clue. The other part of this is that each business that advertises with Froggy would get their web link or FaceBook page on the WUZZ web page. The only cost for this part of the ad is a $25.00 gift certificate for each month that it runs.

The Meadville Tribune ad proposal.
This is a block of ads with 3 different price structures.
The first is a typed ad $25.00 a week

Giggles Toy Shop
Unique Games & Toys for Kids
100 Union Ave • Northcrest

The second is a 2 column by 3 inch ad

Standard ad type.
Black and White would run $49.00 a week.
Full Color would run $55.00 a week.

The more people we have buying ads the bigger our presents is in the paper.
We would have it run on Thursdays. The same day as Bravo.

Again, we have to act fast.

So please make a decision if you want to be a part of either one of these promotions and get right back to me!
