19. For how long does an advertiser have to participate?
There is no long-term commitment; it can be as little as a one-time offer on up to one offer per week.
20. How long will the offer need to be in effect?
We would like for each offer to be valid for one to two weeks, however we can work with you depending upon the type of offer.
21. What does the value of the offer need to be?
Since the offer is part of the rewards program to our Members, it needs to have a significant discount or be a buy-one-get-one offer. Most importantly, the offer should be unique to News-Press Rewards and not commonly available. We will work with you to make sure the offer is one that adds value for our members as well as drive additional customers or exposure for your business.
22. As an advertiser providing an offer, what benefit will I receive?
Your offer will be sent out as a part of our weekly News-Press Rewards email to currently more than 10,000 email addresses. That number will continue to grow. Your logo information will be on the offer, allowing your business to be branded as a part of this new and growing campaign.
23. How much does it cost my business to participate?
News-Press Rewards is free for current contracted advertisers in good standing to participate. Your business simply needs to supply a unique and valuable offer (pending News-Press approval). There is an agreement that both parties sign so that we know both the longevity that the business wishes to participate as well as the offers from the business.
24. Can I proof my offer going out on the email, before it is sent to Members?
Yes, if it is a new offer that needs a proof and we receive it 7 days prior to the email going out, we will be able to send you a copy to approve.
25. Can I pick a specific date for the offer to go out?
All News-Press Rewards email offers will go out every Tuesday. We will try to meet any requests as close to that Tuesday email date as possible, but will not guarantee a specific date.
26. Can I be the exclusive offer on a weekly email?
Since we will be trying to add as much value as possible to these emails for our Members, we will likely have multiple offers every week.
27. Can you refuse the coupon or offer I want to run?
Yes, all coupons and offers must be approved at the discretion of News-Press management. As we are trying to get the best and most unique values for our Members, we may occasionally turn down an initial idea. However, because we want your business to be a part of this, we will work with you to come up with a mutually-agreeable item to include when we can.
28. Who is my contact if I would like to provide an offer?
Please contact your News-Press Advertising Consultant or call (816) 271-8636.
