Easy to use
“What an easy peasy way to advertise!” -Sooke Country Market
A successful marketing medium
I recently organized a very successful Sooke Job Fair. I used the Sooke PocketNews to market this event, and I believe doing so contributed to the success of this event.
I also found Britt to be very professional and competent in helping me quickly decide which type of marketing tool would be best suited for my needs.
New to Sooke, this is an excellent community resource. So good, I’m taking out an ad!
I was fortunate to discover Sooke PocketNews even before I took possession of my new home and had moved here.
I googled Sooke and found SPN quite by chance but, once I did I spent hours researching my wonderful new town through Britt’s stories, articles and archives…all concisely and clearly written. No matter what I googled I seemed to be consistently led back to SPN…an excellence source for a newcomer.
Now that I’ve been here for awhile I find myself relying on SPN for current road and weather conditions, the latest town council news, local advertising, upcoming events, road closures etc…it’s an invaluable site.
I found my new photographer on SPN, he suggested another business contact and on it goes. I feel as if I’ve plunged full force into my new life in Sooke with a wealth of information thanks to Sooke PocketNews.
Thank you so much for making my life easier.
My own business ad will start soon and I’m quite confident that I’ve chosen wisely in placing my advertising with SPN.

Perfectly designed ad, well-placed for effective impact
By now you have heard the news that SFRS Community Thrift Shop has won a BC Hydro Community Champion prize of $10,000. This was a true community effort as the result were directly related to the number of votes our entry received. Perhaps you are not aware of your part in the process? The advertisement to encourage participation was perfectly designed and placed to have an effective impact in getting our community engaged to support us. You did a great job!

“Provides … well-written, brief, and clear updates”
I have been reminded of and able to locate many of the retailers in Sooke from your advertisements in the Daily Sooke PocketNews digest. Being from Metchosin I don’t get to meet face-to-face with members of your community so this news bulletin provides me with a well-written, brief, and clear update of the events of Sooke and a listing of your advertisements. I was even able to follow our local election candidates in this manner. Thank-you!
