As the Oregon business community prepares, we hope, to reopen in the coming weeks, the Pamplin Media Group's Matching Advertising Fund has already offered hundreds of local business owners a much needed helping hand.
"We know historically that businesses that advertise during a downturn in the economy come out stronger afterwards," said J. Brian Monihan, vice president of the Pamplin Media Group. "Local businesses are the heart and soul of our communities. This program is geared to not only help them survive, but thrive in the coming months."
As a family-based and locally owned company, Pamplin Media understands that these are challenging times for all small businesses.
After an amazing response over the past three weeks to this program, the Pamplin Media Group has increased its matching advertising fund to $2.6 million to support local businesses, non-profits and business associations.
"We have built our business on the great relationships we have established with each of the communities we serve," said Monihan. "We know how integral local businesses, non-profits and business associations are to the well-being of our communities. Finding a way that we can all work collectively together to support each other has never been more important. And no other media company has the network of relationships like we do in the dozens of communities that we call home."
Matching advertising funds are open to local businesses, non-profits and business associations and range in value from $250 to $10,000 per month.
The program allows local businesses to double their existing marketing spend by applying for this program.
These matching advertising funds can be used on any digital and print products owned and operated by the Pamplin Media Group during the months of May, June and July.
Simply go to www.pamplinmedia.com/advertising-grant to apply. We will contact all applicants within one to two business days with a response. For more information please contact your local Pamplin Media Group advertising representative.
