“We always advertise in RedEye to get the word out about our free classes and programs for the community. We know that this is an effective way to reach a wide variety of people and demographics, reaching those who live in the city, as well as suburbanites who work in the city and grab a Red Eye to read on the train. Our Red Eye sales representative is wonderful to work with - she always gets us what we need in a timely manner. ”Felicia Ross, Marketing Coordinator - Reform Jewish Chicago
“Over the past two years we have successfully used EZ Targets, targeting the general market through RedEye, and the Hispanic Market with Hoy Newspaper. We love the fact that we can geo target by zip code and reach our desired market.”Valerie Mirea, Media Buyer - Varicose Vein Solutions
“The event was super successful and the AdMail drew a lot of attendees. The event had a GREAT turnout – we had over 200 people show up throughout the night.”Morgan Bennett, Marketing Manager - Burton Snowboards
“It’s interesting how we have seen a spike the day of a RedEye ad, but especially the day after the ad comes out. I was thinking maybe this is because people grab the RedEye and read it on their way home, see the ad and then come in the next day. But either way, there seems to be results.”Jamie Revell, Director of Marketing - Women's Workout & Fitness
“With countless options for our marketing dollars, we wanted to invest wisely to make the biggest impact to reach potential residents for our 28 buildings in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and the Gold Coast. My sales representative and her team worked with us to create an interstitial campaign on redeyechicago.com that would effectively reach our target demographic. It was truly a team effort and from the original concept to the final results, we received a response beyond what we could have imagined. We cannot recommend working with the Tribune enough for progressive businesses wanting to get a great ROI on their online advertising.”Dan McDonough, Marketing & Leasing Director - Planned Property Management
