"This letter is reference to the Coffee News and Brenda Plantz, the Coffee News Representative.  The Coffee News has been a very inexpensive yet effective way to advertise my business.  I have had several new customers sign up with Mathnasium because they saw us in the Coffee News.

I have also very much enjoyed working with Brenda.  She is a "straight shooter." She has been extremely helpful in targeting the area that would be best served by my business.  She is also always reachable and informed about how I can best use her services."

Thank you.

"The personalized service from Brenda and Jeanne is exceptional.  The biggest 
challenge I have faced in my business is the marketing piece.  Without
the assistance, guidance and exposure from Coffee News,  I would not have 
enjoyed such a creative way to increase my sales.  It works!  Just hang in 
there, every week I have an opportunity to reach potential clients."

Hi Brenda,

"Just a line or two to express my appreciation for the Coffee News, Federal Way North Edition.  To dae, it is the most effective print advertising medium that I have.  I get qualified leads several times a month, and I have signed up enough customers from those leads to ore than cover my Coffee News advertising cost by quite a margin!

I particularly like that you target a very local market and that my ad "locks out" the competition from that particular market.  Also, you offer great service at reasonable rates.  Thank you for helping my business prosper."

Dear Brenda,

"Thank you so much for bringing the Coffee News to our area.  It has been a wonderful advertising endeavor.  In the beginning I was a bit skeptical, I'm sure you remember.

 

You have done such a great job of getting the Coffee News in so many locations that I now get calls on regular basis from people who have found me there!  I couldn't be more pleased.  I look forward to doing business with you for many years to come."

 

Sincerely,

"You have a very unique publication in the community.  It's entertaining and fun to read.  I'll be darned if it wasn't exasperating to find that little coffee news man.  He's upside down in the Keller Williams ad.  Very clever."

Dear Brenda:

Just a short note to say "Thank You!" for your publication. You know, word of mouth advertising is by far and away the best form of advertising. I can picture in my mind a couple of good friends sitting around an intimate table, drinking a cup of delicious coffee, and discussing the events of their world. Have you read any good books? Have you seen any good movies? This is where seeds are planted and friends are motivated to buy the book or see the movie.

The weekly Coffee News is the only vehicle I know that allows me to join in on each and every one of those intimate conversations. It allows me to be the unseen friend that asks, "Have you heard about Personal Marketing Connections? What a great company, friendly people, and a great way to save money." You allow me, through Coffee News, to be a part of hundreds of coffee klatches every week. Your little weekly publication is the best "word of mouth" form of advertising that I can invest in.

You and your staff do a wonderful job and are a tremendous asset to the Federal Way business and residential community. In a world of high-tech gadgets, you allow people to stop and smell the roses, enjoy a quite cup of coffee, relax and read about the new and exciting "things" of our local world around us. THANK YOU!

 

Sincerely,

Michael Conner

Dear Brenda,

Just a short note to say how effective the advertising has been for us at Covington Animal Hospital in Covington Washington.  Our clients always comment on how refreshing it is to have something to read when waiting for our services "about town" that is uplifting and always positive in nature.  Our spot in your publication has had a significant impact on our revenue and ability to reach our clients in a low key and friendly manner.  Thanks again.

Hi Brenda,

I just wanted you to know that the ad I running in the Coffee News is amazing. I had my first time homebuyer class advertised and a first time buyer called me so not only did I pick up a client but I am able to help someone realize their dream of homeownership.

Thanks so much for taking time to contact me. I love the paper, I love the contacts I make and I love working with you!
 
Sincerely,

"Coffee News is by far my best advertising investment, generating many calls every week leading to paying customers. Leads from Coffee News paid for six months of ads in two regions within two weeks of the first appearance of my ad. But the best thing about Coffee News is the quality of the leads. I don't get calls from people fishing for information or unwilling to pay the moderate rate for my services, like I have from newspaper ads and other media. Coffee News customers are most likely to be connected with solid businesses and most often give referrals to their friends and business associates. Coffee News is simply indispensable for my small business."

Super news!  I just used a super roofer who advertised in the Coffee News a couple of weeks ago.  The Coffee News is  a great way to find local people who provide quality services (including US)!

“The exposure is there. I believe people are seeing the ads and therefore increasing their awareness and my name recognition.

“An important and attractive element of Coffee News to me is the ability to advertise directly to the area of town that I am teaching in. The response to the ad has been wonderful and it certainly has proven to be an effective advertising tool for my program. I appreciate the cost-effective nature as well as the quality of the ad. I would like to see the Journal-Star try to match it!!!  While I was only able to run my ad for a short time before my classes began... I still felt I got my money’s worth.”
