How we help advertising clients: Drawing upon a strong understanding of the marketing reach of our print and digital platforms, the commercial team work closely with advertising clients to ensure they market their goods and services with positive messaging for our engaged audience. We feature business profiles to let readers know the stories behind the firms, while regular advertising features shine a spotlight on local businesses, and we are happy to report their good news in the paper and online.
