Advertiser Benefits:

Paid Advertisers of Talk Shoppe receive a substantial value and target market reach for their advertising dollar.  Advertisers will complete a questionnaire that will ensure consistencies in their print advertising, tag line, and target market reach.  The advertising package costs $840 a year/$70/mo  and will be charged to a credit card of choice.  Advertisers are businesses that make the Talk Shoppe networking opportunity “free” to attendees.  In exchange, Advertisers are entitled to the following benefits:

  • Print AdvertisingPrint Advertising on the Talk Shoppe bi-monthly flier which informs the public of the upcoming speakers, topics, and events. Advertisers/Supporters commit to distribute these fliers throughout the local marketplace.

In order to add value to the advertising packages for Talk Shoppe advertisers, Talk Shoppe’s policy is to have only one representative from each industry to avoid having advertisers from the same industry competing against each other. For example, we would not want two life and casualty insurance agents, but we would allow  a life and casualty insurance agent and an insurance professional selling health insurance plans to both be Talk Shoppe advertisers as long as they promote within the type advertising platform they designate.

Talk Shoppe’s list of industries follows generally with the list of professions and industries listed by Business Network International (BNI) .
