From Our Advertisers

blue1-quote-mark-hiMy partner and I started our landscaping business in October with the intention of doing snow removal throughout the winter. Our very first (and only) advertising medium was The Southwest Journal. Our first ad ran at the end of November. Our phone literally started ringing the very next day, and it didn’t stop. I am so happy with the success we have had with the Southwest Journal. I would highly recommend them, especially for small business owners that typically need advertising on a budget.

— Trish Hubers, Clean Slate

We love advertising with the Southwest Journal because this newspaper hits our key market. The designers have been creative with our ads and change them monthly for us. We feel that the ads convey our key message each month and give potential new clients interesting or useful information about us, and make it easy for them to contact and find us. We have had a number of clients comment on the ads in a positive way.
