Here We Grow Again – Welcome to Biz X Shelley Oswald
By Deborah Jones
This issue I have some great news to share with you! We are so pleased to welcome a new Account Executive — Shelley Oswald — to our team.
“When I decided to leave my former advertising job, where I’d been for 21 years, Biz X was the only magazine I considered,” says Oswald. “I had no backup plan . . . that was the plan to sell for Biz X! I’m so happy to be working here and can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
Shelley has been in the advertising business for the past 28 years and graduated from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications.
She knows the advertising business and has the experience her clients need in order to make an informed choice on their ad size, budget and how to creative an effective ad.
“I love working in advertising,” she says. “It’s all I’ve ever known and bringing my client and their customers together drives me to succeed. Success for my clients is my motivation!”
To top it off, she is also super friendly and caring. Anyone who has ever met her knows how hard she works and her outstanding level of professionalism shines through in everything she does.
As a resident of LaSalle, she will look after our clients in this area along with the Town of Amherstburg and west Windsor. Shelley also will handle businesses that cater to children in all areas across Essex County. This will be her focus for the first few months but then she will reach out to companies and organizations all over!
She realizes how important it is for advertisers to choose a publication that gives them the best bang for their advertising buck.
With our advertising rates remaining unchanged since we began back in 1998 we have worked with the economy to help local businesses/organizations market their products and services at an affordable price. Full colour is always included in our rates and we have used, since day one, Canada Post to deliver the magazine to our distribution area.
You can also find additional copies of Biz X at trade shows and certain issues are delivered to the U.S. market to reach those Canadians working over the border and American tourists visiting our region.
And we were the first magazine in the area to have a digital edition emailed out to subscribers who opt-in to receive our magazine so you know they are reading it.
We also have an interactive website with news, event calendar, videos, photos, blogs and digital editions of Biz X available for people to view and leave comments. All of this means more attention to our magazine and increased X-posure for our advertisers!
Of course myself and my sister Della Jones-Goulet are still servicing the clients we have had for many years but we hope new clients will give Shelley a call to book an ad with us soon!
You can contact her by dialing 519-300-4960 or emailing: [email protected]
In closing, thank you for welcoming our newest team member with open arms to your business!
