Reach Voters with Increased Visibility 

 

As part of promoting Minnesota’s Best presented by Becker Furniture World & Mattress, Star Tribune’s Advertising and Marketing department will frequently run branded content stories about nominated businesses in the newspaper. Running an ad adjacent to these features, or being the business featured in them, is a great way to promote your business and to draw more votes.

PRINT ADVERTISING

By placing an ad adjacent to a Minnesota's Best feature, you have an opportunity to promote your business and to draw more votes. On Sundays, you will reach our entire print audience. On Thursdays, you can target one of our geographical zones (see details below.)  

​​

There are options for any budget, with 4-color ads starting at $525.

BE A FEATURED BUSINESS

You can also be the business in the branded content story! One story is available per appearance. This story is specifically about your business. It is also distributed to our digital and social media platforms. Space is limited, order yours today!
