High Tide News is locally owned and operated. We hope you enjoy our much-loved little newspaper!
The first edition of High Tide News was produced in June, 2013.
The intent of High Tide is to serve the businesses of Sussex County, Delaware with a newspaper that can help advertisers by reaching potential customers with a product from which readers can not only be informed and learn about local businesses, but also enjoy stories about local personalities, history, and other simply enjoyable, insightful reading. The newspaper comes out monthly and is delivered directly to mailboxes by the U.S. Post Office.
The authors featured in High Tide News are local business people and residents of the local area. All article submissions are considered and usually used in High Tide News. We appreciate and consider any input about articles or the types of stories readers would like to see. The tag line of High Tide News is "For the people and by the people" ...the very basis of High Tide News.
Readers can subscribe for $24 per year to be sure to receive the paper every month. High Tide News gets delivered to 10,000 people each month in different neighborhoods throughout the southern Sussex County area, so with the population of the distribution area at more that 30,000, residents will receive it in their mail box approximately every 3 months... or it can be picked up at one of these distribution spots listed, during the first 2 weeks of each month.
....High Tide News is a powerful, affordable way to market your business. It is interactive which makes it more appealing to "mobile device" folks as well as the every day reader!
In 2015, we introduced AR (augmented reality) videos in the newspaper making the paper interactive. Advertisers can now have their own 30-second high-definition video commercial attached directly to the printed newspaper and viewable with a free downloadable app from LayAR. This cutting edge technology is new for Sussex County and is catching on quickly! You can also attach your video commercial to your business cards and signage to make them interactive....a potential customer can watch your commercial on your business card and then call you at the click of a button on their phone with the AR app... the possibilities are endless! We can do your video commercial and business cards quickly and affordably, so give us a call and we'll get your business hooked up with Augmented Reality and viewable on mobile devices! Call for a demonstration!
Our new product for 2016 is "Make a Newspaper for Your Business!" Every business in Sussex County can now have their own personal business newspaper at a very affordable cost. It is the same size as High Tide News, but 4 pages instead of 12... you can get 5000, 15,000 or 30,000 newspapers printed up to use as you see fit. The Every Door Direct Mail indicia will be printed on the paper for your use if you choose to mail them (for approximately 20 cents each). The newspaper includes two 30-second AR videos and a 1/6th page ad in High Tide News to run for 3 months.
