“Galloway and Collens law firm has advertised in the Oakland County Times for many years.  We track our website performance using a variety of analytic tools and the Oakland County Times is consistently among the three highest referring sources to our website.  Google of course is the top referring website.  We are very satisfied with the return on our advertising dollars spent with the Oakland County Times.”  ~Scott Galloway, Galloway and Collens

“I value OC Times because Crystal is so personable and easy to work with.  She helps you understand what you need to know to get the best out of your sponsorship and makes sure it is exactly what you are looking for.  She is also present at many events and covers all the major (and some not as major) events that are happening in our community-and when she cannot be there she is always willing to get pictures and stories from those who were there!  She is always looking for the positive in her stories- to highlight what is going on that is uplifting- it is so refreshing to read something that is not all doom and gloom or pointing fingers.    The OC Times is for sure worth what we spend in sponsorship! ” ~Nick Klempp, Downtown Holly

“Our real estate team has had great success in partnering with OC Times. Like their readers, I value the coverage of local stories, news and businesses, the stories that are often overlooked by regional and national coverage. Because their coverage is hyper local, just like our business, we are able to reach their readers who are most likely our target customers. The affordable and frequent ad placement offered by the OC Times has allowed us to gain the valuable mindshare of readers in the real estate category.” ~Jim Shaffer, Realtor
