The Power of Advertising in a Travel, Relocation & Retirement GUIDE

A Perfect Pair: The CarolinaLiving GUIDE and Site go hand in hand. Together they create a fully comprehensive resource directing constant traffic back and forth.

Yes, it’s true that lifestyle and news publications (daily, weekly or monthly) with low emphasis on delivering “measurable results” have lost favor!  However, comprehensive guides like CarolinaLiving have deep reach and long lives. Beyond very long shelf life, it is actually used, filed, passed-on and re-used as a resource.

The GUIDE is printed twice a year and distributed via newsstands, is sanctioned as “on request” at all 20 Official Carolina Interstate Welcome Centers, and at 200 Chambers, visitor centers, libraries and relocation depots across both Carolinas.
