ADVERTISE IN THE DOLPHIN

We've corralled a page from this popular and well-read sub base newspaper to give our Members a FREE opportunity to get in front of thousands of military personnel, civilians and their families. Our page publishes the last weekend of each month. Participants must submit a 3.25" width X 2" height graphic design in a JPG format and the advertisement must contain a military discount to be eligible. For questions or to forward graphics, please contact stephanie@mysticchamber.org.

SHARE YOUR GOOD NEWS

Send press releases to stephanie@mysticchamber.org and we'll add them to our Member News section, with a link from our homepage news feed at no charge.

DIGITAL MEDIA ADVERTISING

We provide our Members with digital advertising options for both our website and our outgoing e-blasts. Out-of-State visitors use our website as a digital directory. Your business can be one of the first things they see when making decisions about their choice destinations. Our business community uses the website for referrals, as well as a guide to shopping local.

We deliver two types of e-blasts: “Member” newsletters are mailed out the first and third Mondays of each month, and our “Adventure” newsletters are mailed on Thursdays. Both e-blasts are delivered to more than 1,800+ local business professionals, non-profit organizations, and visitors to the Mystic region who have visited our Welcome Center and provided their email address.
