Working with the team at Smart Shopper & Smart Social Media is a pleasure. They provide not only great products and superb customer service, they provide ideas that one cannot come up with on their own. They help to fulfill needs that we didn’t even know we had because they do their research and truly want their customers to succeed. They are responsive, talented, professional, proactive, and experts in their field!

Our business has spiked 30%, and that’s just the first ad! I kid you not. I track how many pizzas I sell each and every day and there is a considerable increase in volume. The ad looks amazing, it’s easy to read and it POPS! You guys killed it. Thanks again!

Since Smart Shopper Magazine is saved for several months, it’s not your typical throw-away flyer. For us it has been the best local advertising available, especially at its cost.

Traffic always spikes when the new magazine comes out. Due to our price points, redemption numbers are not huge but we see consistent results. Most importantly, 90% of the redemptions are new customers and that’s outstanding because we are very good at keeping them!

The response to my ads has been overwhelming. Since I started with Smart Shopper, I get 10 phone calls a week, and convert 50% or more into ongoing clients. It’s the best money I’ve spent marketing my law firm!

We have received a very good response from the ad. The vast majority of the coupon users have been new customers, some that had no idea that we even existed. We are very pleased so far that we chose to advertise with Smart Shopper!

Smart Shopper is easily our greatest resource for finding new customers. We currently average five new customers from Smart Shopper per week and see a positive return on our investment within 1 to 2 weeks.

I am really happy with the response of my first ad! I love that it is creating a steady stream of new customers and it continues consistently with new calls each week. This was a perfect method of advertising for me. Thank you so much!
Sarah, Owner – Body Therapies For Health
Smart Shopper is amazing and far superior to anything I have ever seen in the area. We have been advertising with them for over 7 years and I can’t imagine our business not being in Smart Shopper! They always have great ideas for our ad and every time we have made a coupon or artwork change our results have been wonderful.
Tami, Owner – Dalmatian Cleaning Services
We have tried many different coupon and advertising options over the years. Smart Shopper consistently delivers the most coupon redemptions and customer response compared to anything we’ve tried. We are convinced that Smart Shopper is the best value out there for advertising!
Brad, Owner – Lava Lanes
We’re selective about where we advertise because our reputation is very important to us, and we were impressed with the quality and presentation of Smart Shopper. We knew it was popular in town, and when we learned about the huge distribution it seemed like an obvious means of promoting Country Catering and Deli. Smart Shopper has been a very effective advertising tool, issue after issue, and continues to be a mainstay in our marketing efforts.
Frank, Owner – Country Catering
It’s rare to have access to affordable advertising with such an amazing return on investment as Smart Shopper. The product is classy, trackable and it just makes sense. Smart Shopper is something the community has come to trust. There are way too many advertising people out there, trying to get your money by guaranteeing the world. Smart Shopper is the real deal.

For a short period of time we decided to explore some other sales building tactics for our operation at Johnny Carino’s. After six months we realized Smart Shopper was the best vehicle to build sales in the competitive Central Oregon restaurant market. Now it is a mainstay for our marketing strategy, and will continue to be so, as we continue to thrive in the community. Thank you Smart Shopper!

Dear Amazing People of Smart Shopper,
Thank you for who you are and what you do. I must admit at first I was skeptical that advertising with you would pay off. I am happy to report that all of your promises have come true, better than I could have hoped for I must add.
When I first placed an ad with you I was shocked at how many of my clients mentioned it. The awareness and top of mind you have created for me is staggering. You have made me a more successful loan officer. Thank you.
Again you are amazing!!!
Mark, Branch Manager – Prime Lending
We track our coupon redemptions, and find that our business grows significantly through Smart Shopper.
Gabby, Owner – Navidi’s
It’s the best advertising I’ve done since opening my shop.
Kirk Heppler, Owner – The Dough Nut
Smart Shopper drops and our phone rings, year after year – it’s that simple! Not only does Smart Shopper produce great results, their professional and expert guidance make the advertising process simple and easy.
Karrie Gladd, Manager – Merry Maids
I advertised in Smart Shopper for two years with good results but took it for granted. I tried to save money by pulling out for a couple of issues. The loss in business was very noticeable. By the time I realized this mistake, I had missed a printing and had to wait 8 weeks to get back in. I tried to reproduce the same results with advertising in other publications and mailings, and they were both much more expensive and not nearly as effective!
Paul Spencer, Owner – Paul The Computer Guy
Advertising in Smart Shopper is without question, the best move I’ve ever made for my business!

Smart Shopper provided great exposure for Meadow Lakes Golf Course, attracting golfers from all over the region, many of whom had never experienced our course before. We are very satisfied with the results we achieved and look forward to working together in the future.
Zach Lampert, Head Golf Professional – Meadow Lakes Golf Course
We recently advertised in Smart Shopper after having tried other forms of direct mail that produce little results. We were surprised by the response! We received numerous calls starting the first day the publication was out and they have continued since. They were helpful in the design of the ad and had suggestions on what type of ideas have worked in the past. Ponderosa Heating plans to continue to use Smart Shopper in the future.
Rob Gassner, Branch Manager – Ponderosa Heating & Cooling
We have used many forms of advertising to promote our business. Nothing has come close to the results we’ve achieved with Smart Shopper.
Travis Lovejoy, Owner – CE Lovejoy’s Brookswood Market
Smart Shopper has, by far, outperformed all my other advertising COMBINED, and has truly transformed my business. The jobs keep rolling in, and my phone has never rung so much. Thank you!
Jason Perkins, Owner – Superior Concrete Restorations
Advertising in Smart Shopper has been a great success. We receive as many as 30 coupons a day!

Coffman Vision Clinic is happy to be advertising with Smart Shopper. It is a great publication that the Central Oregon community looks forward to, and we certainly see the results…thank you!
Meredith Nowak, Marketing – Coffman Vision Clinic
I want to say thank you for the wonderful service Smart Shopper has provided LeBlanc Construction over the years. We’ve tried many marketing strategies in the past, and few have proven as effective. Smart Shopper’s attention to detail and emphasis on quality places it head and shoulders over the competition. After years of experience, it’s obvious that Central Oregon as a whole reads and uses Smart Shopper. Furthermore, Smart Shopper portrays its advertisers with class, style and professionalism; and being the best at what we do, this has always been important to us. In this regard Smart Shopper does not fail! Thanks again for your service.
Rian LeBlanc, Owner – LeBlanc Decks
Smart Shopper has been the best advertising for Westside Shorty’s Childcare Center, bar none! As soon as the magazine arrives in our mailbox, our phone rings non-stop with potential customers! Truly the best advertising dollars we’ve ever spent. Thank You
Smart Shopper magazine has been a non-stop engine for our stores. The coupons in the photo were received in a two week period…a small portion of the total redemptions from a single mailing. If you do the math its easy to see why we continue year after year. Thank you Smart Shopper for helping us on our road to growth and success!
Mac Brookman, Owner – Tan Republic of Bend & Redmond
Smart Shopper is by far our best form of advertising. Thanks for keeping One Street Down Cafe…Hopping!
Kristy Cross, Owner -One Street Down Cafe
I was once a skeptic but after redeeming 100 coupons in the first week and more than 500 for the first issue, I’m thrilled. We’re seeing many new faces. Thank you Smart Shopper.

The best advertising I’ve ever done

If I could advertise in only one place in Central Oregon for my small business- it would be in Smart Shopper. It is hands down the best bang for my marketing money.
Kirsten Goldstein, Owner – Great Clips Hair Salons
Year after year, our ads in Smart Shopper are a huge success! We tracked 127 brand new customers from recent ads and they keep coming! I recommend Smart Shopper to any business looking to attract new customers
Chad Allred, GM – Mirror Pond Cleaners
I was the typical skeptic when I first started advertising in the Smart Shopper. As a new dentist, I was bombarded by numerous ad companies selling the next ‘big thing’ to get me new patients. I trusted David, as my interactions were always very professional and down-to-earth. I’ve now been using the Smart Shopper for 4 years, and will continue to do so. It has been the best Return on Investment of any of the advertising I have done to date. It continues to produce great patients for us, and I couldn’t be happier with the customer service that David and his team provide. Thanks David!
Dr. Brook Derenzy
Never, through advertising, have I received as much success and business recognition as I have seen from our advertisement in Smart Shopper! Thank you Smart Shopper for your support of my locally owned business!
Rebecca, Owner – EsthetixMD (formerly Exhale)
Smart Shopper is the only place I advertise. Customers come by the hundreds. It’s amazing!
I have been advertising in Smart Shopper for the last 6 years and have been very pleased with the amount of great patients it produces for my practice. David provides fantastic customer service and is always available when needed. I will definitely continue to utilize the Smart Shopper for my advertising.
Dr. Branden Ferguson – Alpine Dental
Just wanted to give you some feedback on this past coupon – we had 347 redeemed. I would certainly consider that to be a success! Have a great day and thanks again for your support
