Interested in becoming a Distributor for The Best Of Publications?

Join our seasoned team of Distributors who own and publish a local and online direct mail printed advertising product known as The Best Of Publications. This opportunity allows a highly motivated individual to build, own and operate a local direct mail and online advertising publishing company in one or more of the available market territories.

The Best Of is a well proven direct mailed quarterly coupon book that integrates internet and print media to serve local merchants' advertising needs. A single market territory requiring approximately 24 weeks of work throughout the year, and with 33 to 45 advertisers, will produce $40,000 to $67,000 income annually. Any two marketing territories are considered a full time job. This is a great opportunity for the right individual.

If you are looking for a local business to build, own, and operate and are skilled at meeting people, are successful at sales, like to work independently, and manage your own time efficiently, this could be your opportunity! Sales training support, along with all graphic and production services are provided by the local home office team. No capital investment is required.

The Best Of Publications is wholly owned by Good News Media Group, Inc. We publish direct mail advertising coupon books in cities throughout Washington. The Best Of direct mail products have been published in various communities for almost 20 years. In addition to the printed and mailed publication, The Best Of maintains a website to supplement the printed product and further penetrate the local consumer market.

The Best Of specializes in local business marketing as opposed to regional and national marketing. Advertising sales are made through an independent Distributor network in specific cities or regions. Distributors actually own the right to market and sell in their individual contracted market territories. The Distributor's individual business consisting of sales history, contacts, account base, and assignment of The Best Of marketing territory contract can be built, maintained, or resold.

Successful Distributors not only create their own career, but build equity ownership. All Distributors function as Independent Contractors and manage and operate their own businesses. The home office (Good News Media Group, Inc.) provides support in the form of use of copyrights and trademarks, training, graphic services, along with the printing and mailing of each publication. All services are provided to the Distributors for a predetermined inclusive price.

In each community where The Best Of has a presence, The Best Of direct mail coupon book is published four times a year and distributes to 30,000 local residents with each mailing. The Best Of website supplements the advertiser's reach with printable coupons and offers year round. The selling cycle for each publication is typically four to six weeks. Upon completion of the sales cycle, the publication is subject to a final proof and released for printing. New markets may require a longer sales cycle to build and establish an account base. When the sales and graphic production cycle is complete, the Distributor will release the publication for the print and mail production cycle. Printing and mailing typically runs no more than five weeks and requires no further Distributor involvement. A single marketing territory is effectively a part-time position affording significant time off between the quarterly publications. Two territories are considered a full-time position.

Qualified applicants will have a proven ability in some form of sales and marketing. They will have an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoy meeting people, and manage their time effectively. They will have a desire to work independently and build their own business with the support of the home office team. To be clear, this is not a salaried sales position, but an opportunity to utilize your sales talent, own your own business and build toward your own future.
