Monthly Advertising

Each issue and its ads are in circulation for one full month — from about the 28th of one month to about the 28th of the next month. Your ad will run for as many months as you wish with the option of changing your ad for any month. When Voice was founded in 2006, our circulation was 800 copies per month — and today, circulation varies seasonally up to 4,000 copies distributed to more than 180 distribution points in seven counties across southwestern Wisconsin. At many distribution locations such as cafes and restaurants, it is common for people to read Voice of the River Valley and then leave their copies for others to enjoy, which extends the reach of each issue.
