Common Sense Caregiving

Feather Sound News and Beyond has been running my “Common Sense Caregiving” column, for over a year now, that specializes in dementia care. The feedback I have received from their readers has truly been impressive. I would like to personally thank the staff of the “Feather Sound News and Beyond” for helping me reach out to the family and professional caregivers in their community, for these dementia-related diseases have no boundaries. I look forward to continuing our relationship of educating their readers on all types of dementia care.

Napier’s Log Cabin Horse & Animal Sanctuary

We sincerely thank FeatherSound News and its staff for running articles and advertisements on our adoptable pets. Even though the Sanctuary is located out of the newspaper’s coverage area, it still generates phone calls and adoptions from your area that we would not be receiving if the newspaper didn’t run them.

Clothes To Kids

On behalf of all the Pinellas school children we serve, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving CTK’s press releases space in your publication. A key component of our success is community awareness – letting the community know what we are doing and what we need. Publishing our critical information about our mission helps us accomplish this in a big way!

We are beginning to see direct results from being published in your publication. Donations have come in with a newspaper clipping attached to the check. We are receiving phone calls from residents wanting to volunteer. A handful of private schools have contacted CTK offering us gently used uniform shirts and pants. So many of our residents love to help others they just need to know what the needs are!

Thanks to your help we are off to a great start to making this Back To School season the best ever! And that we can measure by the smiles on the faces of our clients as they leave our stores with a full bag of clothes that fit and help them “fit in.” Think about the night before school – August 23rd. These CTK shoppers will be laying out their clothes and excitedly choosing what to wear on the first day of school. They will go to school feeling confident and excited. These students will NOT be worried about getting picked on. How great is that!

Coldwell Banker Realtor

As a Feather Sound resident, I made the decision to start advertising in the Feather Sound News that I was an active full time realtor with Coldwell Banker. The staff was very helpful creating my ad and has always been there to answer any questions I have. The exposure has enabled me to build a very successful business and help others achieve their real estate goals. If you are not already advertising in the Feather Sound news you should. It is a great form of advertisement to reach our neighbors here in Feather Sound and the other communities the paper reaches. Thanks Feather Sound News for all of your hard work and the quality you put into every newspaper issue.

Young Foundational Health Center

Just quick notes to stay how pleased we are with the responses to the articles I write for your Feather Sound newspaper or should I say newspapers. Congratulations on adding the Bardmoor area to your coverage.

Just about every week, people tell me they have been reading the articles. They read them for several months and then eventually decide to become patients. We have been averaging 3-5 new patients a day for the last 5 years. Seems to correlate with when we started with you. The only real advertising we have done in this time is through your publication.

Thank you once again for helping us grow our practice!

Vet with Hart Veterinary House Call Practice

I opened my veterinary practice, Vet with Hart Veterinary House Call Practice, December of 2012. As a new practice owner, initially business was slow. One day a friend shared the Feather Sound News and Beyond with me. I was very impressed by the color advertisements, newspaper layout, content, columnists, reasonable price for advertising, and the audience it reached. I immediately contacted Kathleen Carfagno, owner of the FSN to enquire about advertising. Kathleen was very professional, and went out of her way to advise me how to best advertise my practice. Advertising in the FSN and Beyond was the best thing I could have done for my practice. Every month I advertise, the number of clients I gain more than doubles. I have a monthly column, ‘Ask the Vet’, that is read by hundreds of local residents. I receive emails thanking me for my advice. Having the column alone is a very rewarding experience. Thank you Kathleen and Feather Sound News staff for helping make my business a success.

Significantly Increased Business

We like the distribution into the affluent neighborhoods that we may not otherwise be able to reach.

The fact that these are mailed and end up in the homeowners hands significantly increases the value and exposure that our advertisement receives. You offer a great tool for a service business like ours!

Gulf Coast Community Care

Feather Sound News has been a great publication for us to get the word out about Adults Mentoring Children, a program of Gulf Coast Community Care. The reason I am sure of this is the fact that we have had calls from people who have responded to our press releases for volunteer mentors. We appreciate the way this publication supports non-profits. Thank you, Feather Sound News staff, for helping us help these children!

Miller Dentistry

I have been advertising in the Feather Sound News for the last couple of years. Out of numerous advertising mediums, this is the most effective and cost efficient I have found. Some of my best patients have come from advertising in the Feather Sound News. Advertising in the Feather Sound News is such an easy and affordable way for a business to get its name and message out there.

I began advertising in the Feather Sound News 7 years ago when I opened a new innovative gynecology practice in the area. I continue to see new patients every week and have seen my practice grow as a result of that advertising. People in this community read Feather Sound News.

I have been advertising in the Feather Sound News for the last 8 years and the staff there has made updating my ads almost effortless, reminds me every month when they’re due, and the price is very reasonable. Because the Feather Sound News is available to all the large companies in the Carillon/Feather Sound area, my practice gets the exposure not obtainable any other way.
