The Coastal Post Needs A Little Help
The Coastal Post is free. It has been free for 32 years and will stay free as long as I am the publisher. That means the paper is free to YOU. Unfortunately, it is not free to produce FOR you. Although most all the people who bring you the paper are volunteers on one level or another, the cost of printing, mailing, delivery and incidentals are there and going up a little every year. I have subsidized the paper for decades and will continue to do so, but the time has come, again, to ask for help.
My nemesis with the Coastal Post has always been advertising sales. We've had half a dozen great salespeople, and another half a dozen good salespeople, but we've also had years where no one was selling ads at all.
We need to either lower the cost of producing and delivering the paper OR add income via advertising and reader support. SO HERE IS THE PLAN: We are advertising for a sales person to help obtain paid advertising for the paper.
Since we print 13,000 copies and distribute them to 85 localities in Marin, along with providing 3,000+ copies for the PO boxes in Stinson Beach, Bolinas and Point Reyes Station, the benefit to advertisers is maximized in the CP. But that good news has not gotten around yet, so we need someone to help us - thus the job offer.
THE REST OF THE PLAN: We are asking people who appreciate the value of the Coastal Post to send a buck, $5 or $10 as a contribution (self-defined sliding scale). Mail to Box 31, Bolinas, CA 94924. It's equal to or a little more than you'd drop in a parking meter, but less than the cost of a subscription.
We need the money and you need to show that you support us. This is our version of pledge drives at PBS and KWMR! It is over quickly and easily by just sending us a few dollars.
We live in dangerous times: times that demand the existence of a paper with moxey, and the drive to find out the truth behind the 'official stories.' That's us, the Coastal Post. There are lots of papers, that you pay at least $1 a copy for, that would never dare to speak truth to power, or even to the local mythmakers. The Coastal Post is dedicated to speaking out. You may not always agree with what you see in print on our pages, but we know that you agree that diversity of thought and a drive to see the truth behind the half-truths and un-truths is important. So send in those envelopes with a few bucks stuffed inside and lets get on with it!
