William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Salisbury Brokerage
I just wish to thank you and Christina Bates for your article regarding local private airstrips in the May issue of Mainstreet Magazine. The focus was on viewing these private airstrips as real estate investment opportunities and your coverage of the North Canaan airstip was excellent. I was handling the marketing of this property through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty and with the help of your article, we found the right buyer and the property has just closed. The new owner is extremely happy and intends to improve the airstrip to higher levels
my best regards

For 5 years, we promoted our annual Red Tag sale the traditional way with weekly ads in local papers for the duration of the month long event. It chugged along and did OK. Two years ago, we decided to try something different. I contacted Thorunn and her team at Main Street Magazine/Thorunn Designs where we have been an advertiser since its inception in 2012.
Thorunn put her team on it and created a 360 degree social media campaign. This was all greek to me but the results were not. They reached a whole new group of customers. Traffic and sales doubled in the first year they handled the event. It increased again this past year. Best of all, the overall cost was significantly less than what had spent in the previous years for lesser results. If I were more tech savvy I could describe all the avenues they pursued but the brilliance was that I didn’t have to. They put the programs together and executed it seamlessly.

Country Bistro advertises in this magazine because MAIN STREET is the mag that is taken away by our patrons almost before the stack gets placed on the front porch in Salisbury. The copies that we bring inside the restaurant for our patrons to read are gone by the next day. We can’t keep one around, which means it is the most read and valued of the free publications. Therefore lots of people see our ad. – Jacqui Hubbard at Country Bistro, Salisbury, CT

Over Mountain Builders
I had never advertised in my 32 years of business but felt it was time to freshen my image. I ‘researched’ other advertisers from afar and after talking with a few people decided to try Main Street Magazine. After meeting them I fell in love with the enthusiastic and positive approach they use and continue to exude. Always professional, and always creative, and just plain fun to talk to.

Many of our clients at the salon take the magazine home with them to read about other local business articles and ads!
