Connecting YOU with your Community
Community Connection Magazine is the only local publication that has been around for over 30 years and is direct-mailed to more than 250,000 home and business owners every six weeks! Even when readers choose to stay at home due to health or weather, you’re still connected – because we carry your ad right to them.
Why do customers always look for the Connection? Coupons AND Content. We’re the only publication in the area that provides both. Why do we do that? Research shows that 87% of all demographics – by income or by age – use coupons. They’re a huge draw.
But our beautifully designed, full-color magazine also provides engaging content – Business Spotlights, Articles, Contests and Games, Recipes, Events Calendar, and more -- that keeps readers coming back again and again.
In addition to coupons and articles, Community Connection Magazine has special features that we’ve intentionally added to engage and challenge our readers and encourage them to hang on to the magazine for multiple reads. That means more (and repeated) exposure for your advertising!
One of the reasons our readers hang on to the Connection is our Events Calendar. It keeps them up-to-date on what is happening in the area!
Readers email us photos of themselves, their family, their pets, their work parties, and more for a chance to appear in the magazine. Lots of creativity here!
Every issue we hide an item in 3 different ads. Readers comb the magazine, looking carefully at each ad, to find the graphics and be entered in a prize drawing.
RECIPES & CRAFTS
From favorite dishes to seasonal crafts, these are fun project suggestions that inspire family togetherness. Sometimes we even feature reader submissions!
GAMES & PRIZES
From sudokus, mazes and word searches to gift card giveaways and contests, our readers enjoy finding these in CC Magazine (especially when they win!).
Each issue of the Connection is published online for our readers to access anywhere. When they click on your ad, they’re taken directly to your website!
MORE INTERACTION MEANS LONGER READS...

Give your ad super powers with super powerful placement! You’ll get maximum visibility - and first dibs on reader attention! Wraps are printed in full color on both sides and attached to the outside of the magazine. You can mail to our entire readership of 100,000+, or to specific zip codes within our mailing area.
You can send a postcard that mails with the Community Connection but isn’t attached to it. We know it’s crazy, but the USPS lets us mail a detached postcard along with our magazine for just pennies.

Have a flyer, menu or other item you’d like our readers to see? Insert it in the Connection! Put those postal savings to work and save substantially over mailing on your own. Insert your own printed piece (some restrictions apply) or let us design and print one for you. Go big and hit all 100,000+ of our readers or target individual zip codes in our mailing area.
