StrayCat, Valentine’s and Reaching People

Posted on Thursday, February 12, 2009 by No comments yet

News flash… Valentine’s during a recession can be an important event for retailers and restaurants.  Or maybe that’s obvious.  We’re seeing a rush this week of free postings and paid advertisements coming into Front Porch Forum.

In fact, I just called one of our advertisers, StrayCat Flower Farm, to place an order for my own sweetie (hope she’s not reading this blog!).  And the owner, Diana Doll, enthusiastically shared this quote with me…

“We’ve received more business from our Front Porch Forum ad than from any other media.”

Glad to hear it!  We love to help.  In fact, we’re getting more and more micro-businesses buying ads.  However, the small and medium-size businesses are more limited.  Those that do advertise with FPF also report remarkable results.  Still others are not yet interested in testing the waters… I guess changing old habits and understanding new opportunities aren’t easy.  Here’s a list of some of our advertisers.
