The cost of advertising in a regionally-distributed publication is considered one of the most cost-effective ways a business can reach many thousands of potential visitors. We focus advertisements in the states whose inhabitants are most likely to visit western Kentucky. The regional visitor’s guide has a long shelf life, ensuring that advertising businesses will have greater exposure to a lucrative market. When visitors ask about a place to stay, eat, or visit, KWW members have the opportunity to be the first introduced to them. How many first-time and repeat visitors to the area do you miss because they aren’t aware of you? Let KWW help you grow and in the process help the entire region to grow as a vacation paradise and desirable tourist destination.
