Don’t be left in the cold this holiday season!

ICDD Members special offer - Advertise in the December gift guide and receive a FREE ad in Feb. 2019 issue
(GoGuide takes each January off)

The Iowa City Downtown District and GoGuide Magazine continue the popular and successful gift guide partnership in 2018!

GoGuide Magazine is written for the local LGBTQ community. However, almost everyone picks up a copy just to see what’s going on around town. It’s our news; our way; & your business!

Our Holiday gift guide has become a very popular annual issue. Our gift guide is a refreshing alternative to other gift guides because it's an essential part of the issue and not just some afterthought like many other guides seem to be each season. Our gift guide combines the ads with a feature article, so the reader becomes involved with the guide and becomes interested in the topic and therefore become interested in the advertisers. There is also the loyalty issue. GoGuide readers support GoGuide advertisers.

Each advertiser also contributes to the gift guide suggestion piece in the holiday section of the magazine. I have an example below for your review. There is no cost for this added feature. It's free for all advertisers. The theme this year is "Must have gifts of 2018."

Space reservation and ad material deadline are November 12. Distribution of the December issue is scheduled to begin on November 30. Rates and ad sizes are below on the attached flyer.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need additional information.

Reserve your space today. Email [email protected] or call (319) 800-3223.

Best,
Tim
