Q. If I need to place in newspapers outside of Tennessee, can you place that as well?

Absolutely! We network with other press services across the country to provide placement outside of Tennessee.  In fact, we work with clients daily to assist them with this.

Q. Do you provide proof of publication (aka tearsheets) of the ads that ran?

We sure do. Once your schedule is complete, you will receive one invoice and tearsheets from each paper in which your ad ran.  For Digital ad placements we provide a screen shot of the digital ad placement and digital reporting can be retrieved from the paper as well.

Q. Will you distribute ad copy to the papers?

Yes, ad copy distribution to each newspaper in the buy is included in our service.

Q. Is print the only product you’ll place in?

No, we also place online ads on our newspapers websites.
