Finding the Best Tampa Advertising Agencies

When you’re looking for a digital advertising agency in Tampa Bay, how do you pick the one that’s best for your small business? Do you go with a company like Schifino Lee that focuses on social media and branding? Maybe Marshall Advertising, which places an emphasis on media buying? Have you considered McKay Advertising for digital ads in Tampa?

 tampa bay newspaper advertising One of the largest Tampa Bay advertising agencies is the Tampa Bay Times. Yes, a newspaper can be an ad agency. Rates for advertising in the TBT vary depending on which part of Tampa Bay you target. For example, a full-run in the main news section will cost you an annual investment of $2,000-$500,000 along with the cost of your ad. A 3″ x 7″ black and white retail ad in the main news section of the daily circulation is an additional $3,080-$4,600, depending on how long you run it. The rates jump to $4,850-$8,530 for Sunday circulation. If you want color, add anywhere from $100-$3,500 on top of that.

You should consider the circulation and targeting of print advertising in the Tampa Bay Times. Daily circulation for the full-run edition is around 202,200, which is 6% of the entire population in Tampa Bay. On Sundays, that number jumps to 332,200 – good for 10% of the populous. How can you be sure your ad is being seen by the right eyes when targeting is only based on what town a reader lives in?

Whether your industry is dentistry, dining, legal services or home improvement, Valpak enables your business to get seen by consumers already interested in your product or service. And, you can rest assured you’ll get results. Valpak uses hyper-targeting to make sure your advertising is always a hit. And it will only cost you pennies per household.
