Town Planner Testimonials...
Being a Town Planner publisher has been a positive experience. The product I publish has evolved into a vehicle that the community enjoys using, thus I feel that I am contributing to the community (not just selling). The network of publishers is one of strength and comraderie. We help each other, share ideas and believe that we are all in this together. Would I do it again? I definitely would! The money’s not bad either!

This year was our sixteenth year publishing the Town Planner. Each year our recognition in the market has grown. You cannot go into a house without seeing it hanging on a refrigerator or wall. Our advertisers love the fact that their business is being seen every day in all the homes in their community. We are already looking forward to our 17th year.

These creative ideas, along with the support of PCI, help me to maximize the potential in each community. In addition to selling, I enjoy creating and distributing a product the residents look forward to receiving each year.

My years as a Town Planner publisher have been very rewarding for myself and my family. It has provided a wonderful income based upon a business model requiring only one employee, low expenses and no inventory costs. It has also provided the freedom and flexibility to allow me to be there for my family when they need me. It’s not the perfect business, but it is close.

Being a Town Planner publisher for the past years has been great for our entire family. We have all enjoyed the benefits of owning our own business. We’ve made money, had more time together as a family and we produced a quality product and service for our community.
As a support network, the Town Planner publisher group has been terrific. Pauler Communications has provided us with the tools we need to begin and expand. The other publishers from around the country have been willing to share and help when needed.
The public as a community has embraced the Town Planner as an important part of organizing their family life. We have made it a complete organizing information resource tool that’s easy to understand and use. The community receives it free at their homes and they love it! Our experience as a publisher has been hard work and very rewarding in many ways.

Total sense…that’s what being a Town Planner publisher means to me. It’s a “No Brainer!” I just published my 10th edition of the Town Planner in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I am proud and thrilled to be providing this community service to the Green Bay residents. Each year as I’ve grown my business, the response to this FREE community publication is overwhelming.
Let me share with you why I personally value this business so much. First, as a parent of three children, I appreciate having a flexible schedule that the Town Planner offers me. All my appointments revolve around my children’s schedules. I work when they are in school. Since I work out of my home, I can even be productive at night if necessary.
Secondly, the Town Planner is a very profitable business. The only costs involved are printing costs, typesetting, postage, royalties and publisher dues. Other small miscellaneous costs include office supplies and phone expenses. Fortunately, there are no inventory costs to carry. As one adds more communities, the profit margin increases. Ideally, many current customers are eager to advertise on new territories that I open up. A high percentage of customers renew each year because they received a favorable response from sponsoring the calendar.
