On September 1, 2016, the very first issue of Upstate Exposures Magazine was published with the goal of publishing positive and inspirational stories of the people, places, things, history, and events of the Upstate of South Carolina. The staff of Upstate Exposures Magazine has volunteered our time and effort, in addition to our full-time jobs, to writing those stories and sharing them. We believe that even though the world seems like such a dark place, that the Upstate is a light that shines brightly, and we intend to be the beacon of that light.
We at Upstate Exposures Magazine still believe that neighbors still look after neighbors, that generosity is not a dirty word, that family is more than blood, and that effort is worth giving. We believe in giving hugs, meals, the shirt off our backs, or whatever is necessary to ease the burdens of others. We believe in selfless acts of kindness to others. And we believe that, as a publication, we can thank those among us who are so generous by telling their story.
We believe in the mission of Upstate Exposures Magazine so strongly, that we are asking you to partner with us as a sponsor of our e-magazine. We do not charge subscriptions so that anyone with access to the Internet can read every issue for free and be uplifted through the stories that are published each month. In order to continue to provide this publication for free to the general public, we are looking to businesses, churches, and organizations to partner with us to provide financial sponsorships to keep the magazine viable.
Your willingness to provide financial support for Upstate Exposures Magazine will show the Upstate that you are willing to support a publication that goes against the trend of negativity in providing valuable and uplifting true stories that leaves the reader feeling better about themselves and the world they live in.
Upstate Exposures Magazine is privately and locally owned. We are not a subsidiary of a larger national company, nor are we a franchise. All staff members live and work right here in the Upstate, and most have lived here their entire lives. When you join us in our efforts, you will be joining your neighbors and working with friends.
Sponsorships start at $275 per month for a 12-month agreement. Sizes range from ¼ page and 1/3 columns to 2-page spreads in every issue. Ad design and photography services are available as well with trained professionals. We want to work with you to provide the services you need, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss the possibilities with you.
We believe that together we can prove that good things are still happening right here in our corner of the world. Won’t you join us today? Please call Heather at (864) 214-6535 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org for a meeting. We look forward to talking to you.
