It’s easy to get lost in ALL THE NOISE

Thinking outside the box can change that and help you BE TOP-OF-MIND WITH CONSUMERS


The Problem…

The above image represents two BIG problems:

  1. How your business looks to a consumer in a very competitive market place.
  2. How you stand out in almost every marketing solution available.

Something we can all relate to

Today’s world is a world full of lost things. Our smartphones bombard us with hundreds of ads and articles and videos that we skim past. Our inboxes are full of emails that go unread or quickly get deleted. Our trash is littered with discarded mail. We reject phone calls on a daily basis, and Social media has become more crowded than New York’s Time Square. As a matter of fact, one industry doing well these days is the one that helps us filter all this content out.

At the end of the day, only a select few things attract our attention and our time. In any given industry, in any given market, there can be hundreds and thousands of choices for a specific solution. Only a few will attract attention as determined by the circumstances.


…Our Solution – We Get Through The Clutter!

Make Your Business a Household Name

Being in the right spot, at the right time, is what makes Town Planner so effective at building your brand. When the customer is ready to buy, Town Planner puts you in the right place to get the order

In order to benefit our advertising sponsors, we first must focus on the consumer and offer them something of personal value, to keep and hold on to.

The Town Planner is your local community calendar and resource guide. It is MAILED AS A FREE GIFT from our local sponsors each December.

No ordinary calendar! Each calendar offers our users:

  • Great Offers From Local Businesses
  • Local & Regional Event Information
  • Community Resource Phone Numbers
  • Local & Regional Attraction Info
  • A Weekly e-Mail News Letter, and Online Calendar
  • Large Date Blocks for Their Own Life Events

… and your customers love it!

So how do our business advertising sponsors benefit from this?

Each year we ask our users how they’re using their calendars, and what they would like to see in the next edition. Most importantly, we ask what type of businesses they’re most likely to patronize.

Our Sponsors get:
