Advertise. Best ROI of any Media!

The main advantage Social Media has over print is cost savings.
The Official Virginia Wine Lover e-Newsletter goes out every month and each week to all who did not open the previous week. Our newsletter gets almost twice the industry average in opens.


Another advantage is an e-blast can promote a single event or venue instantly. And when you have access to a targeted and compiled email list like we have of culinary tourists and wine lovers you are reaching your market when they are prime.


My ad agency colleagues all say social media works better than print (especially for dated events). More cost efficient, faster, more targeted exposure...and better results, too!

Compare Social Media to Traditional Media

The following media are a "shotgun" approach to advertising.
Only a small percentile of their audience is interested in wine or wine festivals.

• TV: Expensive and costly to produce an ad. With cable, there are too many channels.

• Radio: Too many stations. How do you to determine which is best for you? How many listeners are interested in your product or service?

• Magazines: Readership and circulation is down will all magazines and many are going online. Most are bi monthly or bi annual meaning they are not timely. Difficult to track results.

• Newspapers: Demographic is skewed to 45 plus market. Works best with large ads or small ads with lots of frequency. Can be expensive.

• Direct Mail: Expensive, slow, and only as good as your mailing list.

• Outdoor: Works best for 25-mile radius of your location. Fairly expensive because to get maximum impact you need to reserve at least several billboards to be effective.

• Public Relations: Only works if the medium you select decides to use what you send. Moreover, to which media do you send your press release?
