Submissions & Rate Card

Hey thanks for checking things out! 

This section is pretty much the “go-to” place on our website to find out what we have available for you to be a special part of the Gateway Gazette – whether that’s through providing articles, advertising or both.

We will be adding to these options as we get the forms setup. If you have any questions please call us at 403-933-4283 or email: gazette@telus.net.

Each of the headings below will expand to provide more information.

Housekeeping / Guidelines

  1. Payments are made online for any paid advertising. You won’t be able to submit an ad online without first providing payment. If this is a challenge for your organization, please email (gazette@telus.net) us to make alternate arrangements.

  2. This is a self-serve approach to providing guest posts and choosing advertising options, however we are only a phone call (403-933-4283) or an email (gazette@telus.net) away and are happy to assist you in any way we can, we’ll respond as soon as we are able. You can complete and submit forms 24/7.

  3. You can submit as many forms, articles, advertisements as you like, as often as you like.

  4. We reserve the right to decline any submissions received at our own discretion. We will let you know when we make a decision one way or the other on each submission.

  5. If you’re a business experiencing financial hardship, PLEASE let us know. While we have expenses too, we will do what we can to work with you and find the best possible fit for you. During difficult times, marketing your business is even more important than during any other business cycle. Let us help.

Without further adieu – let’s jump in!

In the meantime, we have revamped our Business Community Directory – we highly recommend this for all businesses, regardless of your marketing intentions. Our Business Community is highly visible and promoted significantly throughout our social media channels. You can include a substantial amount of information in one of these listings as well. It’s definitely a high value option at a very affordable rate.

All of our advertising is “post” based, meaning that no matter what type of ad you want, you will get a full page ad to do what you like with. All of our ads are shared out through our social media channels – distribution is in relation to the ad option purchased.

We are HUGE advocates of “Content Marketing” – in short, this means that you’re providing high value articles to your customers and prospects, using us as means of distribution to increase your reach and exposure and in turn strengthening relationships with your customers and prospects giving them a reason to enter your sales funnel.
