DISTRIBUTION AND READERSHIP
We circulate 10,000 magazines with readership of ~26,500 per issue. Go Local is published bi-annually (mid-November and mid-June) with each issue distributed for 6 months.
We are not your average Flathead Valley Magazine. Our community-focused content digs into the more interesting aspects of local art & culture, small businesses, & outdoor adventure. We have passionate audience engagement skewing younger (25–50) and including tourists and older snowbirds. Go Local also boasts the most social media engagement amongst similar publications in the valley.

Your Ad Dollar Goes Further
Long Shelf Life – Go Local guides stay relevant all season. Since we publish biannually, your advertising investment stays active in print and online for over six months per issue. A magazine left in a coffee shop, hotel lobby, or waiting room will be read by countless consumers for months.
Distribution & Visibility – Go Local is distributed to 150+ businesses and public venues, including three locations at Glacier International Airport. The content is designed to be accessible for both visitors and locals in order to drive the greatest number of new customers your way.
Online Coverage – In addition to print distribution, the magazine is available online.
Affordability – If there are lower full-color gloss ad rates in the valley, we haven’t found them. As a small business ourselves, we strive to keep our rates low so that independent businesses of all sizes can afford to highlight their services in our magazine.
Local Business Spotlights – We feature a number of in-depth business profiles and highlights to further promote your business in each issue. We like to tell the story behind your business — who you are, how you got here — so that customers can form a connection with you. We believe these personal relationships are what set local businesses apart and keep shoppers coming back again and again.
