We offer special placement in the inside front and inside back covers. We rotate ads throughout the rest of the publication to encourage readers to flip through the entire Westside Guides Magazine. Your ad will be moved from issue to issue to receive the greatest impact.
No, we do not run exclusive ad.
We encourage our advertisers to market their business using many strategies. Unfortunately most small businesses don’t have the budget to cover every publication available. We have a reputation of impeccable customer service and encourage you to call some of the other advertisers in the West side.

Yes, you would but we recommend that you run in more than one issue. Our readers tend to keep the Westside Guides from one issue to the next. When they see you in multiple issues it leaves more impressions and when they need your services they will remember that you are in the Westside Guides magazine as well as online listing and call you.
The best price per ad is based on the amount of times you run. If you commit to six issues, we can give you better pricing. Be sure to ask about multi-issue pricing.
