The service I don’t provide anymore, and why you should use it

When was the last time you walked out to your driveway or mailbox to get your newspaper?


Do you remember how great it felt to peruse the front page headlines as that first sip of warm coffee hit your taste buds? Flipping through the pages, you would inevitably come across an article about a subject you wouldn’t normally seek out. You learned something new. You became a little bit smarter than you were the day before.


I was in the newspaper industry for nearly 20 years before launching Archer’s Bow Media. I already had several years of experience with targeted digital display advertising, and focusing on digital media provided security and upside. I had learned what works, what doesn’t work, and why. I work directly with businesses now, but hope to partner with newspapers in the near future to help them increase their revenues.


I expected there would be things I would miss about the newspaper industry. There are. But one thing I didn’t expect was how enjoyable it is to read my local newspaper now as a regular citizen.


If you have fallen out of the habit, I encourage you to subscribe to your local paper again. Not only is it an enjoyable and educational routine, but supporting local journalism is an act of civic responsibility.


Below is a list of newspapers in the Missouri Ozarks. If you have any additions or corrections, please email me at jacob@archersbowmedia.com.
