Mlive Media Group is offering a new Partnership Program to support marketing, advertising and branding needs by matching 25 percent to 100 percent of the advertising investment to make sure a business is set-up and supported for the next 6 to 12 months. The match level varies based on the length of the campaign.

The program is designed to add value to a business’ strategy immediately, by matching qualifying advertising dollars with its own investment. The longer the campaign, the more value benefit a business receives, according to Mlive Media Group.

  • Tier One, Three Month Commitment | A match of 25% of qualifying spend
  • Tier Two, Six Month Commitment | A match of 50% of qualifying spend
  • Tier Three, Twelve Month Commitment | A match of 100% of qualifying spend

This program will benefit advertisers through 2021, but a business must sign on before October 31, 2020. Click here for more information.
