Does Everyone Know Your Name?

It's common sense confirmed by decades of advertising research:
the most recognized companies get the most business.

People don't buy from strangers...
but from people they know, like & trust.

Building your reputation among the area's older residents and visitors
with an ad in the SouthShore Retirement Guide can make a big difference in your business!

      • These are not your grandparents' retirees. They don't fit old stereotypes.
      • They're more active and have more money.
      • They're good customers for almost everything, probably including what you sell.
      • They're a big part of the local population--too large a market segment to ignore!
      • They're looking for value, trust, service--perhaps more than price.


Advertising in the SouthShore Retirement Guide's print and online editions will help you build profitable relationships with these valuable consumers...and do so cost-effectively.

The SouthShore Retirement Guide is a high-quality, full-color pocket-sized annual magazine that showcases companies that want to demonstrate their interest in meeting seniors' needs.

Over the next 12 months, we'll distribute at least 20,000 copies through hospitals, health clinics, professional offices, senior centers, libraries, chambers of commerce, a variety of retailers and other places seniors congregate.

In addition to seniors themselves, the publication will reach family members, who are commonly involved in seniors' decision-making--often with little local knowledge--and professionals who work with them--who use The Guide to make referrals.

Through this web site, the information is available to a worldwide audience--far away family members, prospective new residents, visitors.
