A public “Ad workshop” run by David Fowler can bring your newspaper as much as $20,000 to $120,000 in instant ad revenues.

  1. Advertisers and prospective advertisers gain a deeper appreciation for the value of newspaper advertising and it’s effectiveness in growing a business.
  2. Advertisers love these workshops and the ideas they take away to implement immediately.
  3. Advertisers and prospective advertisers spend more money with the newspaper as a result of the workshop—revenue gains are instant.

Can a 2-hour public workshop, sponsored by your newspaper really produce the revenues promised? Absolutely yes. The workshop, titled, “Proven strategies to grow your business 20%, 30%, 50% or more in 12 months”, generated $60,000 within days of the workshop for a small weekly publication. A medium size daily paper generated $120,000. All directly attributable to this powerful workshop.

David Fowler’s workshops are literally considered “money in the bank”. They’re lively, interactive, insightful, entertaining, plus each strategy presented has been marketplace-proven and can be immediately implemented.

Designed for 70-80 participants, these workshops are presented by David with points illustrated by a strong PowerPoint presentation and an effectively written workbook handout (that bears your logo on the cover).
