Utah Stories Advertising

How Utah Stories magazine is the most affordable effective method to reach local Utah shoppers
Our Unique Business Model
Utah Stories maintains no sales staff, instead we rely on readers to provide advertiser referrals that meet our criteria to be called one of the "best in local Utah".
Utah Stories only accepts advertisers that we can personally endorse. We vouch for all of our advertisers quality in their service and products.
By maintaining no sales staff, we pass the savings on to our advertisers. This way we maintain a magazine with one-third fewer ads per page than other free local magazines
By having fewer ads per page and emphasizing the quality of all of our advertisers, the advertising effectiveness is very high. Eighty-five percent of all advertisers who have signed on to Utah Stories have remained with us.
The bottom line: If your business meets our standards for quality and excellence, there is no better way to reach Utah residents who want to support the best of local Utah--than Utah Stories.
