There are two ways to advertise your organization in the Seniors' Resource Guide. You may purchase Display Advertising, which comes with a free Business Listing, or you may purchase Business Listings only. 

1. BUSINESS LISTINGS

Business Listings run for the calendar year in both the printed and online editions. The listings are available in over 30 different Categories and are published in our annual Seniors' Resource Guide which is printed every December. They also appear all year long on this website in a searchable database. Business Listings cost $55/year for your first Business Listing and $30/year for each additional listing. The $55 fee for your first listing is waived if you purchase a Display Advertisement

Each customer’s Business Listings must be Activated (paid for) and Updated (reviewed and approved for accuracy by each customer) every year in order to be included in each year’s edition, even if no changes are required.

Each customer manages their Business Listings online, here at our website by clicking Business Login in the upper right corner and entering their login information. If you are new and this is your first Business Listing you will select Option #3. Once logged in with a User Profile, Username and Password you can then add new listings at any time, as well as review, edit and Activate existing listings. Please keep in mind that whatever information you have listed in your Business Listings account as of September 15, 2018 will be downloaded and published in the 2019 Seniors’ Resource Guide.

2. DISPLAY ADVERTISING - When you purchase a Display Advertisement you receive the following:

Full color ads at no additional charge

One free Business Listing - $55 value

GETTING COPIES OF THE PUBLICATION

Companies that purchase display advertising in the publication receive free copies of the Seniors' Resource Guide delivered to their place of business at the start of each year that their advertisements run.

BILLING

Business Listings are annual and must be updated and paid for online at www.stlouistimes.com each year. They can also be paid by mail. For more information see page six of this Media Kit.

Display Advertisers receive their first Business Listing free of charge, as well as an invoice by email for the cost of their display ad and any additional Business Listings (over and above their first free listing). For organizations that purchase two or three-year agreements (rather than one year), invoices will be issued annually for each year's advertisement. If Net Rates increase during a multi-year agreement your discount will be applied to the new Net Rates. In the event a multi-year agreement is cancelled prior to completion, a short-rate will be applied and invoiced for the difference between the discounted rate versus the rate that would have applied had the agreement not been cancelled. All Display Advertisers invoices will be emailed (and credit card transactions will be charged) on October 31 of each year. Payment in full is required by November 30 of each year. Please make checks payable to the St. Louis Times, P.O. Box 456, Valley Park, MO 63088. A 1.5%-per-month charge (18% annual percentage rate) will be added for accounts 30 days past due.
