Q: What does it cost me to be a part of the Inner Circle?
A: It depends, what are you willing to pay? Ha, just kidding - we don’t charge business partners to be a member of PB Inner Circle. All we ask is that you treat our members like family, just like we do. You may have to provide a free gift or deep discount to gain access to our membership base of more than 35,000 households of loyal readership.
Q: Do I have to sign a contract?
A: We are more of a “handshake” kind of place. We will however, write up the details of any discounts or giveaways you are offering to the Inner Circle so we can ensure we get the facts correct and have the information we need in case you want to repeat an offer.
Q: What kind of rewards can I offer?
A: This is the place to think out of the box and find things you can offer that no one else can. For example, a plant store/nursery may offer a 15% off coupon regularly in their print ads, but at PBinnercircle.com they give a 60% discount. Or, they invite 30 lucky winners to come to their store in February to plant “Mother’s Day” hanging baskets. The nursery then waters and cares for them until the week of Mother’s Day, when the winners stop in and pick them up.
Q: What’s in it for me?
A: So many awesome things. Where to begin? You get free marketing, knowledgable event staff, a featured spot on the Inner Circle webpage (which provides access to over 90% of adults 18+ in the greater Rochester market) and we do all the work… for you!
