Print + Web - Save when you combine them...

You can participate in an integrated advertising campaign by taking out an ad in both Flavours Magazine and Blue Ridge Highlands. Your print advertisement will further influence readers to search your business online. Simply select the ad size that you are interested in purchasing from the Flavours and Blue Ridge Highlands rate and size chart in this media kit.

MOBILE BARCODE MARKETING: For as little as $250 a month (for one year) your integrated advertising campaign can target a mobile market. You will receive a full page color ad with a 2D barcode insert in 4 issues of Flavours Magazine and a top of page graphic ad in rotation for 1 year on the Blue Ridge Highlands website. When a FLAVOURS reader sees the barcode in your print advertisement, he/she can take a picture of it on their mobile phone. If the device then has the appropriate decoding software installed on it, the phone will decode the information in the form that it appears on the BLUE RIDGE HIGHLANDS website. Barcodes can provide much more detail about the advertiser in a small space. If your business offers discounts, or other incentives, when customers either scan, or bring the ad into your store, you can track which advertising is most effective
