PRINT & SELL FOR 100% PROFIT FOR YOUR BUSINESS
PRE-COVID - THE PAPER WAS MAILED TO 4000+ MAILBOXES IN MANITOBA AT A SHIPPING COST OF $2000 - $2500 per MONTH. THAT'S JUST SHIPPING.
In 2020 Covid hit the world and Blue Raven Design's office in Ashern, Manitoba closed, forcing The Around Town Paper to online only editions.
No businesses open = no ads = no income.
THE AROUND TOWN PAPER - ONLINE READERSHIP GREW
During the global shutdown, we grew an online audience and a large subscription list. We continued to produce the paper weekly, if only to entertain people and keep them updated about Covid information. We never missed a week!
THE PANDEMIC ENDED - BUSINESSES NEEDED SUPPORT
Blue Raven Design decided that instead of shipping printed papers to a limited audience at such high costs, we would offer 100% of the profits of printing and sales to anyone in Manitoba. Those purchasing copies will be supporting local businesses.
