D C Thomson Media launches Back to Business

DC Thomson Media is pleased to launch a new initiative, Back to Business, offering up to £250,000 worth of advertisements to help boost local businesses returning to work.

Over the past couple of challenging months under lockdown, DC Thomson Media has worked with existing advertisers to give away more than 500 free adverts to communicate essential business or community updates.

Now we’re stepping up our efforts even further and extending the support to other hard working businesses in our local communities, in a drive to kickstart our economy.


The DC Thomson Media Back to Business initiative is designed to help local businesses build awareness or boost sales

As part of this next stage, we’ve committed £250,000 worth of advertising to the Back to Business initiative for businesses in Tayside and Perthshire.

Together, we’ll develop a targeted radio, print and digital campaign across the Courier, Evening Telegraph and Pure Radio. Back to Business can then be used to subsidise your marketing spend with us, covering up to 70% of your total campaign cost.

What we can offer

Your business is the starting point when it comes to getting a plan of action together. Whether you want to build brand awareness or boost sales, we’ll design a bespoke campaign around your needs as a business, using everything we have at our fingertips to drive results.

Back to Business can be used to support your bespoke multi-media campaign, subsidising a percentage of the total campaign cost.

The level of support each business qualifies for will be calculated on an individual basis.

In total, £250,000 worth of advertising is available to be shared amongst qualifying businesses. We hope to help as many as possible through this fund so that together we can get our local economy thriving again.

What we need you to do

To access our new Back to Business initiative, businesses should apply as soon as possible. Once qualifying businesses have been identified, the DC Thomson Media advertising teams will reach out to you to get the ball rolling.
