Questions. We love ‘em. When somebody has a question for us here at Paper Shop, we know that they’re either already advertising with us or thinking of giving us a try. We’re happy to help with and all inquiries, and we’ve found that a number of them are, well, frequently asked questions. Here’s where we take some time to talk about them.
This is it. The Big Kahuna. The FAQ-iest of FAQ’s. It’s a question the we must get asked a hundred times a day. And it’s actually a pretty good one, and one that we’re happy to answer.
As you probably already know, we’ve been doing the local advertising thing for nearly 50 years. We’ve adapted to a rapidly growing audience, to the major shifts in economy that happen over a few decades, and to the growth of the internet as an advertising medium. And when we took some time to think about it, we felt that the best way to make sure we’re around for another 50 years is by changing the way we do business.
We decided to concentrate our efforts on building a far larger community of advertisers, since when more folks are advertising with us it means more folks are reading us. And if we’ve got more attention for every ad, that will translate into more sales for the people advertising. With that in mind, we’ve decided to go totally free.
We would like to sincerely thank the many people who have expressed concern that we might not be around. No worries – we will. And we plan to be your free local advertising source for the next 50 years!
