Advertise in the North Brown Hunters/Visitors Directory

North Brown Hunters/Visitors Directory

What is it? This directory will feature businesses that might be of interest to hunters and visitors coming to Northern Brown County, plus a calendar of local events during hunting season.

What businesses? We want to feature businesses in the communities of Barnard, Elm Lake, Frederick, and Westport especially. Ads for other businesses will also be accepted.

Where can people find it? This directory will be distributed at hunting lodges, restaurants, stores and other interested businesses in the Frederick Area. It will be distributed at local events, and local residents can request copies to give or send to hunters staying with them. Advertisers will also received copies. A minimum of 300 copies will be printed. We will also post it on Fredericksd.com and promote it on the FrederickSD Facebook page.

When will it be distributed? It will be handed out or sent out Oct. 18-19.

Why? The business team of the Rise Up & Raise the Bar community engagement project wanted to help promote area businesses to hunters. Dakotafire Media is doing the work for this project so it can happen in a very short timeframe.

We are doing this fast (but we’ll do it well!), so if you are interested
in advertising, call 605-290-3335 or e-mail heidi {at} dakotafire.net NOW!
The absolute deadline to reserve a spot is noon Saturday, Oct. 14!

The Dakotafire Go Local Directory [2] is a guide to retail, dining, and lodging destinations that are locally owned and often “off the beaten path.”

From where? The booklet features locally owned businesses in the Dakotas.

To where? The directory will be distributed at information centers in North and South Dakota, plus at advertisers’ places of business. At least 10,000 copies will be printed. The directory will also be available online at dakotafire.net/directory, and it will be promoted on Facebook via a variety of pages. Advertisers can opt in to other online and social media promotions.

When? The directory will be available May 1, 2017.

Why? We want to celebrate and connect small businesses in the Dakotas, and help people find their way through your doors!

Anything else? Yes! This booklet is also an example in “coopetition”: The idea that entrepreneurs can do better working together instead of going it alone. We encourage participants to promote one another’s businesses, turning a customer for one place into a customer for many. Ask your sales representative for more information.

NEW in 2017: In addition to the regular directory section, where businesses are listed by town, the 2017 directory will also have a CATEGORY section. We’ll help shoppers find the kind of local business they are after, whether it’s for coffee, antiques, fabric—whatever the Dakotas offer! Now this handy guide will be even handier, helping your customers seek out your business!
