What our neighbors and readers have to say about the Advocate:
The Advocate has a way of bringing a community together. It gives the feeling of intimacy that is missing so often in the press. I give the Advocate a five-star rating for developing stories with heart. Thank you for reminding me every time I read the magazine how fortunate I am to be living in such a nice community, with so many good neighbors and a magazine that shares our stories. —Janet Utley
The Advocate helps me take pride in the neighborhood I live in! I read it from cover to cover — including the advertisements — so potential sponsors should take note, and be delighted with an opportunity to be included in such a wonderful publication!
—Lu Ann Michaelree
I look forward to the Advocate each month and always sit down immediately to read it. Without fail, I always find something interesting tha pertains to my life. You have definitely enriched our neighborhood!
Everyone is reading the Advocate! After a recent article on couples married 50+ years, my husband and I are receiving many nice comments and e-mails from friends and acquaintances. We hadn’t told anyone about the article and were out of town when it arrived. Even strangers are coming up to us and asking, "Aren’t you the couple in the Advocate?"
— Peggy King
What our advertisers have to say about the Advocate:
We have been advertising in the Advocate for approximately 8 years. It has always made a big difference in our sales when we did or did not advertise. The Advocate is very neighborhood oriented. You can find it in most of the local shops and it is delivered to every house in my advertising area. We would highly recommend advertising with the Advocate.

As a family owned business, Quigley Heating and Air Conditioning is always looking to reach our loyal customer base with effective and consistent marketing. The Advocate has been exactly what we needed to reach our customers with direct consumer reach in the very areas we are trying to increase our business. The magazine content and the readership is parallel to none and has allowed us to consistently communicate our current promotions every single month in a salient and well written neighborhood magazine. We have enjoyed ad spaces in every area of the magazine knowing that the readers really do read from cover to cover. The customer service and ad production has been superb and we can literally attribute thousands upon thousands of dollars as a direct return on our investment in the magazine. During the times we have scaled down our marketing budget, the Advocate has been the only marketing tool towards which we have increased our budget and we still continue to see new customers every month from this medium. Thank you!
—Ashley Quigley, Quigley Heating and Air Conditioning

I get more new patients from Advocate Magazine than from any other source. ( by far) I will advertise in Advocate Magazine as long as I practice dentistry. —Kelli Slate, DDS
The Advocate has brought us so much business! Especially from the Lakewood magazine. Many new customers have come to us with projects for their yards.
—Jina Ball, Creative Water Gardens
I have been an Ebby Halliday Realtor for 8 years and have used several publications for advertising. The Advocate is the only print media that has resulted in calls from complete strangers! It is, no doubt, due to your reputation in the community. Folks look to the Advocate as a trustworthy source and in turn, feel comfortable contacting the services that advertise. The current economy has forced me to make some business decisions concerning where I spend my money. The one place I did not cut is The Advocate! Thank you for providing a valuable resource!
P.S. I love the stories about my neighbors and their interests and accomplishments. It makes me feel like I live in a small town!
—Mary Rinne, Ebby Halliday, Realtors
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how delightful the photo shoot was. Linda and I both hate having our photos made but you guys made it fun.
We are very excited by the reaction to the article. We have already booked one job and hired a new employee who saw the article and got in touch with us.
