All the things we do...this puppy knows lots of tricks

As the Beagle/Otter and our magazine, HWS Montana, enter a new cycle, we are getting ourselves better organized to help serve our readers and clients.

We also want to let readers know that we do a lot more than the Beagle and Otter. Please see the items below for some info on our other services, production dates and new or updated information in our 2018-19 cycle starting now!

THE BIGFORK BEAGLE/FLATHEAD OTTER is published monthly around the school year. We produce at least 3,000 hard copies in Sept., Oct., Nov., Dec/Jan, March, April, May and June. Our December/Holiday editions hit the streets right after Thanksgiving and include our popular holiday gift buyers guide.

Our June/Summer edition will feature our second Day Trippers Guide for our summer visitors and locals who want to know what’s going on nearby. This summer we printed and distributed more than 9,000 copies of the Day Tripper from Whitefish to Missoula. Our digital editions were viewed by thousands from Southern California to Canada, Europe to Asia and Africa to the Arctic Circle. We did for far less cost and with vastly superior circulation than any other media company in Bigfork, The Flathead Valley or Western Montana. It took us more than 30 years to build up such a network and we hope more local businesses will take advantage of that. Next summer we would love to do as much as we can to help bring more tourists to Bigfork and Lakeside/Somers. These are the kinds of publications that help stabilize little community papers and we need the support of tourism-based businesses to keep our Beagle and Otter healthy and happy.

10% DONATIONS TO LOCAL CHARITIES The Beagle/Otter will donate 10% of each issue’s net profits to a preselected local charity. Churches, nonprofits, charities, service organizations and clubs should submit their requests to be considered as one of our recipients. There will only be 9 per cycle so submit your interest ASAP! The West Shore Community Library will be our October recipient.

LETTERS TO SANTA will be included in our Beagle/Otter Winter Issue. Letters are due by Thanksgiving break and papers will hit the streets about a week later.

DIGITAL and DIGITAL-ONLY By popular request, we have included a digital-only ad campaign for those who embrace the social media market for a fraction of the cost of our print-media packages. All of our print media is supported by websites, social media pages and email campaigns that cover three Montana counties, three states and two with a national focus.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Was meant to be a regular feature but we’ve had trouble getting sources. If you know of a former Bigfork High School or Lakeside-Somers student who has gone on to bigger and better things, please send us an email and we can make a feature page for that person.

DEADLINES for the Beagle/Otter are generally the last Friday of the month unless otherwise scheduled.

FREE PERSONAL AND CLASSIFIED ADS are accepted and posted in real time on our Facebook pages in Western Montana. See Page 16 for some classifieds.
