Online advertising without disadvantages
Internet presence is essential. Without your own website, Facebook page, Google Maps profile you will miss out on a large audience. That's why, in addition to print advertising, we also offer advertising opportunities on our website and social media.
What distinguishes us is that we do not make or allow intrusive online advertising. Annoying pop-ups, pages that are redirected and flickering advertisements with sound are better seen and clicked more often but hardly ever lead to a commitment.
In order to generate the best possible results for our customers, we offer various advertising packages, such as our package for start-ups. Because every company is unique and needs to be commercialized differently, we put all packages together in a personal consultation.
