Advertising Space Available in Newsletter

HOW publishes HOW Now!, a quarterly newsletter, to keep residents informed on Wildwood and HOW programs. The newsletter includes informative articles on HOW, Wildwood events, ads for local merchants and other neighborhood information. The ad space sold in HOW Now! helps to keep our annual events and services thriving.

Sponsoring HOW is just $75 per year. Send in your application and payment early in the year to get the benefit of advertising in each of the quarterly newsletters for the same low price. The spring, summer and fall editions are distributed to all active members. The winter edition gets distributed to all 1600 households in Wildwood. In total, we expect to distribute approximately 2000 newsletters annually.

Get the most out of your advertising dollar. The ad style is up to you - you can submit your business card, a clippable coupon (and you'll really see that it pays to advertise with HOW), or some other format. Ads will generally be sized to 3 3/4" by 2", and depending on available space, an advertiser may be spotlighted, so include extra copy to go beneath the ad if you wish. See an archived newsletter for examples of spotlighted advertisers. Spotlights are rotated during the year as space permits. All sponsors are automatically added to the HOW mailing list to receive the newsletter.

Advertising space is limited and is sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be accepted until all ad spaces are sold up through the Winter newsletter deadline of October 13th.
