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 will be downloaded and published.

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

Full color ads at no additional charge

Seniors’ Resource Guide - Display Advertisers can pre-pay for their advertising online at www.stlouistimes.com or be invoiced.

Invoices will be sent (and credit card transactions will be charged) on October 15th of each year. Payment is due by November 15th of each year. A 1.5%-per-month charge (18% annual percentage rate) will be added for accounts 30 days past due. Please make checks payable to the St. Louis Times, P.O. Box 456, Valley Park, MO 63088.
