Citizen to change publication schedule

Starting Sunday, Oct. 3, the Pasadena Citizen will be cutting their publication down to a twice a week newspaper, distributing to homes on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Do to the economic environment and poor readership  many newspapers have become a thing of the past. Today there are more alternatives to reaching consumers. One way that companies are reaching consumers is through new social media platforms said Tammie Nielsen of TK Media/Brand You Club. More and more companies are in control of their own advertising.  Many companies have opted to hire experts to train and manage the Facebook and twitter accounts.

Despite the wave of consumers making their purchases on the web there are still many affordable and effective outlets for advertising.  Adswork4u outdoor takes billboard on the move with their mobile billboard trucks, because of  it’s mobile capabilities it has the ability to go were consumers go. Adswork4u has advertising plans to meet most budgets and can reach consumers 7 day’s a week.
