NEW HOMES - The New Homes section began running in February 2012, and the results have been outstanding! This special section in the SUNDAY Times-Dispatch features stunning pictures of new properties, educational copy for prospective homebuyers and beautiful design.
Feedback from local builders has been exceptional (one said he didn’t know if he wanted to reappear in the section because he didn’t know if he could handle the foot traffic his first run generated!)
Each advertiser receives a run in The Times-Dispatch’s most popular weekly edition and a robust digital package that includes banner impressions, a digital sticky and their story on TimesDispatch.com. The story is also sent out via our e-mail blast to reach as many eyes as possible.
What a great way to reach potential homebuyers!
DISCOVER RICHMOND - From long-time residents to newcomers and visitors, Discover Richmond is the must-have ANNUAL MAGAZINE about all things Richmond. The photo-rich magazine is chock full of up-to-date features on the region's plentiful offerings of fine places to live, work, play, learn, shop, dine, worship, celebrate and explore.The award-winning magazine made its 2012 debut on Sunday, MAY 20. (Scroll down this web page for more Discover Richmond details.)
RICHMOND DRIVES - Like other cities, Richmond is filled with car dealerships. The challenge facing these businesses is how to differentiate from competitors. One excellent option: Richmond Drives, a weekly feature that profiles area dealerships, their cars and their employees. Each FRIDAY, the feature appears in The Times-Dispatch and gives dealers a chance to connect with the public.
For example, a mid-April story featured Jud Dauray, parts and service director at Pearson Mitsubishi. The piece offered insight into Dauray’s background, expertise and hobbies and gave him a chance to discuss what makes Pearson Mitsubishi an excellent source for local car buyers.
The story also can run with a deck ad for the featured dealership, which allows the business to generate interest and revenue. Richmond Drives is a strong example of why partnering with The Times-Dispatch makes sense for local businesses.
Primetime - This special section of the paper is geared toward providing new opportunities and exciting information for people age 50 and up.
Every month, PrimeTime will highlight community members, businesses, fashion, active lifestyle communities and entertainment venues that are attractive to boomers and retirees. With a combination of local features and timely content, PrimeTime is a go-to lifestyle guide.
