GET READY…It’s Happening! Stay Tuned for the START of Co-op VOICE Advertising!

Co-op Voice logo

The Co-op VOICE is starting an advertising program to make the newsletter financially self-sufficient. The low cost and simplicity of the process makes advertising in the Voice attractive. In addition, we can potentially reach the entire Honest Weight community, approximately 12,000+ shareholders and others.

The advertisements will be in the sidebar of the Voice website and each will include a link to the advertiser’s web page, if desired. There are two prices for ads: $100 for a 200 pixel ad, or $200 for a 400 pixel ad; all ads will run for one year (11 issues). Payment will be by check or PayPal. Please contact Sandra and Erin at advertising AT for more information.

To maximize the number of VOICE subscribers who will see the advertisements, we’re working to increase member opt-ins. It’s currently possible to opt-in to the Voice subscriber list electronically via the VOICE website. You can even use a smartphone reader QR code!

At the Oct 23 Membership Meeting, Erin Coufal and Sandra Montest-Hoff, Member-Owners managing VOICE advertising, made available an opt-in card, another way to subscribe. The opt-in card, pictured below, is available at the Co-op service desk:

As a transplant to Albany, Sandra Montest-Hoff’s connection to the Co-op started in 2014 when her daughter, who is also a shareholder, recommended the store to her. She has slowly increased her involvement in Co-op activities, such as becoming a member–owner, and remains committed to making the Co-op VOICE self- sufficient through sponsorships.
