Advertiser Testimonials

Keep It New Auto Service “The Monthly Grapevine has been the backbone of my advertising needs. I have tried different variations of print advertising and using the exact same ad that I am currently running (and have with very little modifications for years), the results were amazing, Grapevine produces very good results, almost 8% more than any other publication I have tried. I track the return, not only customer count but also in dollars and cents, I have had no other advertising in ANY other form that produces gross dollars like the Grapevine.

Now with their help, I have expanded to multiple Internet specific type advertising. Lets face it, not every business, nor every person uses or sees just one type of advertising. The results were interesting, 2 to 3 % comes from these type of advertising (almost 8% less), just barely gave me an acceptable return. I can always count on the Grapevine, if I was forced into only using one advertising source, hands down I have tried and proven results from the Grapevine, and the people are fabulous to work with, always professional and friendly and eager to help in any way they can. Thank you Monthly Grapevine!” Linn Small – Owner

Thought you would like to know what a great public service you are providing.” Breast Cancer Support Group
