Mainebiz Offering 60% Advertising Discount to Nonprofits

by Jessica Lantos

Last November, MANP’s longtime media partner, Mainebiz, introduced The Giving Guide, a new publication that provides nonprofits with a chance to showcase their important work to statewide business leaders, a highly strategic group.  Once again, we are partnering with Mainebiz on this publication to provide statewide nonprofits with a unique marketing opportunity to highlight your valuable work.

Mainebiz wants to make participation in the Giving Guide as affordable as possible, and is offering a two-page full color spread package priced at 60% off their regular rates. While the normal cost would be $5,020, the cost for your nonprofit would be $1,995, and MANP members will receive an additional $300 discount, for a total cost of $1,695.  The publication will have limited advertising opportunities and only the first to respond and reserve space will be guaranteed participation. The deadline to participate is October 12th.

While we recognize that even this significantly discounted price is high for many organizations, we encourage you to think creatively. You might consider partnering with other organizations in your network, or finding a benefactor to help offset some or all of the cost of the advertising. Mainebiz has also offered its assistance in pointing you in the direction of possible business funders to help make this opportunity work for you.

In the advertising format of The Giving Guide, the left page of each spread will feature an outline of your organization’s mission, programs, volunteer and giving opportunities, and list your board of directors. Mainebiz will provide you with the template, which can include your logo, and up to three photos.  The right facing page will feature a full page color ad, and Mainebiz will provide complimentary ad design if you need help.

Mainebiz  is mailed to over 10,000 subscribers through the state, and is the only audited, statewide, subscription-based business publication in Maine. This special publication will be direct mailed to subscribers in late November. By participating in the Giving Guide, you can raise organizational awareness and give potential donors important information regarding your organization.
