About The My County Direct Promotional Offer Campaign

View the media kit here .

Each month, we mail 120,000+ books to households throughout Carroll County, Howard County, and Baltimore County Maryland; approximately 10,000 books in each region currently with 6 regions in Carroll (Sykesville, Eldersburg, Westminster, Mount Airy, Finksburg, and Hampstead/Manchester),4 regions in Howard (Northwest Howard County, West Ellicott City, Northwest Columbia, and Southwest Columbia), and 2 regions in Baltimore County (Reisterstown and West Owings Mills).

Also, we promote advertiser offers via Facebook with custom, organic, social media messaging meant to engage the community.

Even better still, advertisers can change their message and promotional offer each month with custom designed promotions.

We offer three ways to buy your advertising, as low as $97.92 per ad for a 1/2 page print ad in one region with our 12 ad pre-paid plan: Prepaid, Annual Contract, and Month to Month. We require payment up front on all pricing options. In order to lock down your ad placement and begin the design process (included) payment in full is needed. Prepayment will grant you the lowest price on your advertising. An annual contract will allow you to get your ads at a low rate, but requires a contract and an automatic payment method (credit card or ACH transfer). Month-to-Month is still available at a rate lower than any competitor product, and gives you the flexibility to purchase ads for periods less than 12 months.

My Carroll Direct has been a fixture in Carroll County since August of 2016, but It began much earlier than that, with a Community Business Directory called MBD Maryland Business Directory, which was started in 2004 by Amy Giannakoulias, Partner and co-owner of Trembling Giant Marketing. My County Direct was designed as an evolution of the direct mail marketing product that was MBD Maryland.

Local, small businesses were looking for affordable, targetable, and frequent advertising opportunities; large national brands are dominating the space with inflated costs and low quality; that is where My Carroll Direct steps in. Our publications feature local businesses over national brands; our magazine format is more accessible and looked at than competitor publications delivered in envelopes; our high quality paper and hot press offset printing process produces superior color and detail to our low-end and newsprint quality competitors; and we are a home-grown central maryland business, growing with and supporting other local small businesses within the communities we serve. All reasons why your regionally focused business should make My County Direct one of the first solutions you choose for marketing your business to your community.

My County Direct is owned, managed, designed, produced, and distributed by Trembling Giant Marketing, a Carroll County local small business. It is focused on supporting and promoting other local small businesses. The design quality is professional, the print quality is superior, and it delivers for local businesses like clockwork. Whether you are looking to improve your brand marketing or your direct marketing, My County Direct nails them both!
