My love for Waco and the people of this community began over twenty-one years ago. Advertising with The Wacoan allows me to support another locally-grown business that has stayed true to our shared small-town roots. This partnership helps Spice Village and other local businesses maintain our connection to the wonderful people who helped make us what we are today.

— Jennifer Wilson, Commander of Chaos & Owner, Spice Village

BluebonnetThrough the creativity and dependability of the WACOAN staff, I have been able to grow and promote my locally owned company, Bluebonnet Health Services. My relationship with the WACOAN began over 12 years ago. My plan was to connect to the community and surrounding areas through a respected medium. What I received in return is more than I ever anticipated. The home health care and hospice message is delicate and personal and the WACOAN helps me achieve the desired balance for this conversation. The WACOAN has been my major source of visibility. Michelle and her team always go above and beyond for me. Without a doubt, I believe the WACOAN is the heartbeat of Waco.

— Holley and Mark Walsh, Bluebonnet Health Services

Peggy_Smolen_TestimonialThe WACOAN is a solid publication filled with beautiful pages supporting local stories and interesting editorials. The staff is easy to work with, and the production quality is top notch.

— Peggy Smolen, Independent Bank

Kim_Patterson_TestimonialThe WACOAN has a beautiful aesthetic with content that reaches our community’s thought leaders, so it is a key element in our marketing mix. However, I didn’t fully realize the influence of your magazine until I received a call from a parent who was seeking a new college option for this son. He had our WACOAN ad in his hand and read the copy to me right from the page! Thank you for helping us reach this family that was seeking a high-quality, affordable alternative for their son’s university education. We have a new student—and the WACOAN has an even bigger fan!

— Kim Patterson, University Center at McLennan Community College

wacofootankleHonestly, we are not expecting people to see our ad and call immediately. What we envision is because of our ad our name will come to mind when the time comes for a podiatrist, and they will choose Waco Foot & Ankle. That’s why we advertise each month.

— Waco Foot & Ankle

Camille JohnsonThe WACOAN Magazine has been a huge asset in my business. Their beautiful ads have helped market my homes in an effective manner since 2004. I can attribute much of my business from people seeing my monthly ad, giving my homes great exposure to all of Waco. The quality of their magazine, the quality of the pictures that they take of my homes and the creative manner that they put the ads together have been a terrific boost to my business. The entire staff of the WACOAN are so helpful and hardworking. They keep me on track with my ad copy and gently remind me of the deadlines. We have developed a wonderful partnership. I feel that they are a major component of my marketing plan in getting my homes sold. We also love to give a copy of the WACOAN to people transferring to Waco. They are always impressed with the magazine and in turn, they are impressed with Waco. The WACOAN has truly been a wonderful asset to me!

— Camille Johnson, Realtor

Tony LeNoirThe Expert Advice page has been a huge success for our company, as far as getting our company name out to the public. Since being a contributor for the Expert page, our sales have increased, not only in the roofing aspect, but also on home improvement. I have had people in our community and the surrounding communities approach me to comment on the articles they have read and look forward to the next month’s article. Cen-Tex Roof Systems has also received numerous calls concerning our articles. I highly recommend advertising in the WACOAN.

— Tony LeNoir, Cen-Tex Roof Systems

g2bygeorgiosBefore I even saw my ad in the magazine, I was getting phone calls. A week later, I was still getting new clients. The ad changed my demographic and attracted new customers. I’ve had people say they’re excited they don’t have to drive to a Nordstorm to find casual cocktail wear.

My goal was to reach a multitude of people from all walks of life across Waco and surrounding areas.

Leandra HumphreysThroughout our first year of business as a locally owned gift and home décor store, the WACOAN Magazine has been instrumental in establishing our standing in the Waco retail market and community. All of our advertisements in the WACOAN were handled with care and consideration by an attentive and creative staff, who strive to make sure that their clients are satisfied with their advertising product. The appealing ads have definitely paid off, and continue to do so, as we regularly hear from customers that our latest advertisement in the WACOAN caught their eye. The WACOAN is clearly a community enhancing publication, one in which we are proud to play a role, and we look forward to continue to do so for many years to come.

Over the past 5 years we have advertised in the WACOAN magazine to help grow our skincare business at Sanger Avenue Aesthetics. We have found the staff at the WACOAN to be highly professional and honest. They have provided us with proven marketing ideas, together with outstanding implementation. They have assisted us in creating some phenomenal advertising. We are truly grateful to the WACOAN for the positive return on our advertising dollars.

Sean MedlinFor the past fifteen years, we have tried every conceivable form of advertising (magazines, phone book, billboards, commercials, etc.) and have received little–if any–results. Then we tried the WACOAN. What a difference it has made! Besides a beautiful magazine with amazing ads, our business definitely sees an increase in response and revenue every time we advertise. The staff is very helpful at designing and keeping our ads appealing and current, as well as constantly staying in contact with us about upcoming specials and issues that we may be interested in. We are proud to advertise in the WACOAN and enjoy the relationships that have developed over the past four years of advertising with this great local magazine.
