I include the Waikato Business News in my marketing mix because it is not your ordinary daily newspaper. It a publication full of in-depth stories about local business initiatives that Waikato business people read over an extended period. And it’s conveniently distributed to the door or available at key public sites like the airport making it readily available at the right times. To me that means the WBN gives my advertising longer exposure to a very targeted market. One of the great things about the team at WBN is their commitment to my advertising objectives. I can rely on Bev to make sure I never miss an opportunity and I always have time to meet the deadline. They provide real opportunities for editorial too

Each month, Waikato Business News provides a great snapshot of what’s happening in Waikato companies. Readership is high, so that means your advertising and/or stories about your business will get noticed by the all-important business audience. For several of my clients, we have tracked their website hits following publication of an advert in the Waikato Business News and we have seen
a marked increase in web traffic most times. That is one way we can effectively measure that exposure in this publication has an effect. The editor and account representatives are great to work with and are quick to find a solution for businesses looking to increase their profile in the Waikato region. If you need to reach the Waikato business market, you must consider exposure through the Waikato Business News.
