Being in the GO LOCAL Pocket Guide is an easy way to reach people who have an affinity for local businesses.  Like all GO LOCAL media opportunities, it reaches a qualified customer. There's no waste, just highly receptive folks picking up the guide who support local businesses and nonprofits.
 
Pocket Guides are picked up by local shoppers at these GO LOCAL rewards merchants, plus Community First Credit Union branches, Oliver's Markets, Goodwill stores, Hansel Auto service centers, and many more locations. 
 
The Pocket Guide is published twice per year, with 10,000 copies per printing.

That's a total annual readership of 60,000. It's a handy print reference for EXCLUSIVELY locally owned businesses in Sonoma County. It's also published online as a flipbook.  In addition to listings and ads, you'll also find infographic editorial pages describing why it's important to support local businesses and nonprofits.
