Welcome to issue 30 Readers and advertisers. This issue, advertisers/clients, contributors and readers have asked me if the ISLAND and Surrounds owns any other businesses in this region which may be a conflict of interest to my clients. I would like to make it very clear that ISLAND and Surrounds will never purchase a business that is in competition to any of our clients. Our business is a newspaper, we also have an advertising agency called Pumicestone Creative and the Meander Map. This is the only business that the ISLAND and Surrounds has any interest in.
Clients and readers are extremely important to the Team of TIAS, without our valued clients we would not be able to produce this newspaper. The only way we can provide the readers and clients with a quality good read newspaper, is focus on our business and what we do best.
The clients know their business and are skilled and experts in their field, service or product. TIAS will never compete with any of our clients for space in the paper, our paper is for the community, our local businesses and to increase the economy buy supporting all our clients and not competing against them. Enough said about this matter.
Last issue we introduced a new flexiad, where there is no lock in contracts for our advertisers, however there are conditions. Please call me to enquire more about this if you are considering advertising. We are moving very quickly into the world of digital with introducing QR codes to your adverts. Please see more information about this in the paper.
