§  listing as an official band sponsor in press coverage

§  listing as an official band sponsor in electronic media

§  a 6 ft. by 2 ft. banner with your company name/logo displayed during parade in front of one of the bands

§  listing as band sponsor in post parade T.V. coverage and “Thank-you” publications

Your sponsor banner will be produced with a seasonal border around your company name. If you have a logo that you wish to have shown, please provide one with your sponsorship pledge sheet. The banner will remain with the parade properties as inventory.

Google Places May Be As Important As Your Facebook Posts!

05.07.2018

The kiosk at the Port of Orillia is now live and the kiosk destined for outside the Orillia Opera House should be live by the end of July.

 

Content will be the same on both kiosks, and I would encourage you to check out both the interface portion and the display advertising on the kiosk currently.

 

The kiosk is programmed to pull and display, at no cost, information about business within a 5 minute and 20 minute walking distance.

 

Ø  In order for business names and details to be displayed from the kiosk the business must be added to google places.  Steps can be found by searching  “how to get on google places

  • If the business does not show within google maps then it needs to be added to google places.

 

For more information on Google Places check out:

It is also important for business to encourage Google Reviews as it engages the customer base and increases your placement in searches.  Google reviews are becoming a very important analytic and your Google Business Account can allow you to provide product information and is not subject to social media likes or friends, but rather available to anyone doing a search.
