Submit your Information for NBN’s 1st Quarterly Ledger Publication 2015

New Bern Now's Ledger magazine

We’ve already started working on New Bern Now’s Quarterly Ledger Publication (January – March 2015).

Please send us information about events for your organization/community group or new business by December 10th so we can fit it into the next Edition.

The Ledger is unlike any local magazine. Our focus is on community information as we provide approximately 70% content and 30% ads vs. other magazines having 30% content and 70% ads.

The Ledger is a mini-version of the website. If you haven’t seen our current edition, it’s in a slick magazine format with cover pages in color. The current October – December 2014 Edition is available in color, online and hardcopies are distributed throughout the greater New Bern area and Beyond.

Special thanks to everyone who has supported our efforts as the Ledger has grown into a 20 page, full size-magazine.

You can make a difference by becoming a sponsor and helping us cover the cost of printing. This is a great way to reach thousands of people looking for local information. The advertising rates are very affordable and include the online and hardcopy versions along with your website or Facebook page being published as a “Must Visit” link on NBN’s homepage. Contact us today as the space is limited – first come, first serve!

We’ve referenced over 460 local businesses and non-profits for free over the years. Now we are asking for your help. We have a special opportunity for these organizations to set your business or non-profit apart from the rest. For a small fee of $10 per month, we’re offering a hyperlink back to your website (payable every 6 months at $70 or annually for $120).

This is a win-win situation for your organization and New Bern Now!

Here’s the benefits you’ll receive for only $10 per month:

– Your business listing in the Ledger will direct online readers to your website.

– For those reading the printed edition, your listing will be highlighted vs. others, therefore, setting you apart from your competitors.

– Your business will also be listed on our Sponsor’s page on NBN’s website.

– When people see NBN’s logo next to your business, they will know that you support a positive brand in our community. Here’s an example:


Our ultimate goal is to generate enough revenue to publish a New Bern magazine that promotes our community without charging expensive advertising fees.

With your support, we hope to be able to print upcoming editions in full color. This can be very expensive, but it’s what our target audience wants. Our audience is comprised of residents and visitors to the Greater New Bern area and beyond who are looking for positive information about our community.

Please let us know if you’re interested in supporting our mission. December 10th is the deadline for the January – March 2015 Edition. Please give us a call with any questions at 252-638-6858.

We look forward to helping spread the word about the latest happenings throughout the greater New Bern area!
