TCN Fundraiser

Another way you can support the TCN is through the purchase of an ad. You've probably noticed the TCN is not filled with ads. There's only one text ad per edition because I don't want the news to be crowded out by advertisements. I also want to make sure the one ad that appears stands out and isn't competing with others. A number of companies have used the TCN to promote new products, upcoming displays at trade shows, webinars, and even to advertise job openings. The cost is only $100 to reach the 7,800+ email addresses on the distribution list. You not only get your message out to a big audience, but you help support the daily updates. Please contact me for more information on advertising in the TCN. You can also make a contribution by check or credit card. Please see the information below on how to do that. THANK YOU!
