"The 100th Anniversary CASH BASH Facebook promotion that Shaw Media created, implemented and managed for us was fantastic! It drastically increased our exposure in celebrating Home State Bank’s 100th year in business."

Brett Berg

VP/Director of Marketing
Homes State Bank

"Since I have signed on with the digital marketing program, I have seen an increase in business. The digital reports are great and I'm most impressed with the "click to call report". It shows how many customers actually click and call my business resulting in reservations being made. I think the program is a great value and easy to use for a busy business owner."

"The McHenry County Economic Development Corporation used the Shaw Media Geo Fencing tool to raise our visibility with manufacturers and site selectors attending industry shows both in Chicago and Washington DC. We found it an inexpensive way to be “on-site” without having to attend the conferences in person. We presented the results of our efforts to our Board of Directors and several of them are considering utilizing this tool for their businesses. Our hits have increased steadily and by utilizing another tool, war are able to see who ultimately clicked through to our site. We will definitely continue to use Shaw Media’s Mobile Geo Fencing tool."

Vice President
McHenry County EDC

"Shaw Media has been tremendous to work with. The transition that we experienced shifting was not only well worth the risks but flawless, due mostly in part to the knowledge, professionalism and dedication of the team at Shaw."

"I was completely unaware of what digital marketing was. Pam and Brett explained it completely and I decided to advertise on national sites for the next 4 months by targeting people who are active in the real estate market. Received my first report and was completely surprised as to the results. I was above average on my click through rate. There was a screen shot of my ad on Fox News, to see what my ad looks like online. People have even told me, I saw your ad."

"In today's world of information overload, it's increasingly important to find the right balance between traditional print advertising and digital marketing possibilities. My sales representatives at Shaw Media took the time to listen and understand Nazareth Academy's needs in order to come up with an effective advertising strategy for our Open House campaign. Their knowledge and creative assistance were invaluable."

"We have been running digital advertising on TheHerald-News.com for over a year now and we continue to see an increase in traffic to our website. We now see, on average, 150 clicks per month from readers on TheHerald-News.com going to the Tyson Motors website. We also use the “Sponsored Content” program, where stories appear on The Herald-News website and Social Media. It is a great program that has allowed us to blog to the community about “New” happenings with Chrysler Jeep Dodge and talk about topics that are important to local readers and our customers. We also use the content and videos on our own site, which helps our SEO ranking."

“Shaw Media Marketing’s Sponsored Content program offers one-stop marketing solutions that add value to our business. Maureen and her digital media team helped us bring our firm's marketing into the twenty-first century. We were able to grow our social following online while maintaining our print reach. Importantly, Shaw Media Marketing provides actionable data reports on reach and engagement. What does that mean? We knew not only that we were growing, but more importantly, we knew how we were growing. We got more for our dollar and learned to target our market more effectively. After the first year, we renewed and increased our investment. It was an easy decision. I can't think of many other expenses where the value proposition was as clear as it was working with Maureen and her team.”

They are always ready to help and are flexible with any changes with our account. Emails and phone calls are always answered quickly. They really look out for their clients needs and never push something that is not a good fit. They ask what we are looking for and contact us only if they feel we are interested in the types of ads offered.”

“Since advertising with the NewsTribune, I have gotten a good amount of new customers who have seen my ads, especially on the front page. The years in service section has also been beneficial to my business. They also have the Readers Choice voting, which is done once a year, and my kennel was voted #1, so that brought in more customers as well. I would highly recommend advertising with the NewsTribune!”

"We did a monthly campaign with the Bureau County Republican, for reminding people during Covid, that we were available and open as an essential construction project business. Keeping Johnsons Carpet Shoppe, Inc. in front of them thru the paper and online was very beneficial during an unknown season of business. We are so thankful to stay working and meeting our customers needs as best we can."

“Working with Pam and the Shaw Media team has been such a great experience. Our partnership started with a small sticker on the front of the newspaper, increased to a half page ad, then to a full page color ad, and eventually to the front page; we’ve even expanded into digital and audio ads. Even after six years, each ad published brings in new customers!”

“Elderwerks has been advertising with Shaw Media for several years. It takes time to develop recognition for our type of senior service, and most people don t find us until they’re in crisis. With our sponsored content, we’re able to inform the public about important senior topics, and get recognition as a leader in our industry.

We have had many leads from this advertising program and hope to continue for many more years to come.“

Jennifer Prell


“We've seen a lot of gimmicks in the entertainment industry but sponsored content via the NWHerald is not a gimmick. It's an essential part of our Marketing plan. The clearly defined and titled approach allows us to instill confidence in the reader and to enhance our wide array of advertising. We tell a complex story and integrity is essential. The NW Herald compliments our approach tremendously."

Richard Kuranda
