Place Your November Perk Right Now! Deadline: November 1, 5pm

At a recent Brown Bag business seminar Teresa Thomae, Director of our Central Coast Small Business Development Center, said, "Online is the only and best way to get the word out on your business."  Whether you agree entirely or cautiously, that is a potent statement from a highly respected small business development specialist.

Fact: More than 85% of the country is online. Santa Cruz County is in one of the country's three higher-than-90% corridors.

Fact: Our audience is the family market. In that market segment 85% of the buying decisions are made by women. If you want to reach that powerful buying market, we encourage you to partner with us.

More Facts:  This parent generation is online 3-4 times/day getting information, "talking" in their chat groups, getting news, visiting's Events Calendar, and getting their free parent newsletter and Parent Perks Newsletter from  Our stats triple for three days after the Perks Newsletter arrives.

To submit your perk (special offer or coupon), click on Local Perks in the Welcome Box of our homepage or here. This is a free service that comes with your annual listing. Deadline November 1, 5pm.
