Guidelines

As a guideline, the column is designed to cover Business "News" which is typically a new business, or a major renovation or move. Each week there are 10 - 15 businesses in the "funnel ", and the column only covers 4 - 5 businesses in the space allowed. So if you've been in business for a year or more, or if your "news" is a midnight madness sale, or a new sales rep, you might be getting a rejection email back. Having said that, don't be afraid to ask!

I don't need pages and pages of info as each piece is about 100 words. At the same time the more you can guide me as to how you would like your business described, the better. Be sure to include the basics, such as your background or qualifications, the services or products you offer and their features and benefits, hours of operation, directions if they are complicated etc. If you are not sure, have a look at the sample below, and get a really good idea of the typical content. Please note, some people simply provide a link to their website, which I'll admit is a real convenience for them, however it takes me about half an hour to go through your website, take a good guess at what you want me to say, and then write it. It's much better for both of us, and very much appreciated, if you give me some direction.

If you require a photo or logo for your article, please be sure to indicate it on the Submit page, and we will provide you with the email to upload your file.
