Why advertise in the Democrat?

Give us a call!

Call Samantha at  (601) 656-4000 or email samantha@neshobademocrat.com to place an ad, or go straight to the rate card like an ad agency pro!


Why advertise?

You should spend 2–5% of your sales revenue on marketing as a general rule of thumb. 

The U.S. Small Business Administration recommends spending 7 to 8 percent of your gross revenue on marketing and advertising.


So why the Democrat?

• You will reach about 20,000 readers weekly in the Democrat — more than any other option in town. That's why a majority of your budget should be in the Democrat.

• You will reach our 20,00 readers in one of the special sections we print every month with targeted themes such as Graduation, Football and The Fair Times.  

•  Rate cards are confusing, so when you speak with a marketing specialist we will boil it down to a plan as simple as an introductory $50/month business card size.  Or our specialists can get down to business and scale up to start meeting your needs and getting customers calling and in the door.

• You will benefit from the experience and care of the oldest business institution in Neshoba County locally owned since our founding in August  1881.
