How It Works


We distribute Common Nonsense weekly to local restaurants and retail locations.

We place our publication in high-traffic areas, such as check-out counters, waiting areas, directly on tables, or near the shop entrance. Customers voluntarily pick up a free copy of Common Nonsense to read while they wait, or to take with them. We have received comments from owners and employees of our drop off locations that their customers appreciate our publication and look for it on return visits, and sometimes ask for a copy if our stand happens to be empty!

We carefully track printing, distribution, and returns of each edition.

We keep costs low by printing "just enough" copies of each edition of Common Nonsense. We adjust the quantity for each edition based on results from previous editions. We maintain receipts and logs to prove the quantity printed and net distribution for each edition.

We are a small business that understands the need, and the cost, to advertise.

Our target advertisers are small businesses and individuals seeking inexpensive marketing exposure in the Springfield Missouri area. We require no long-term commitments. You may advertise as frequently as you want, and you may change your ad with each edition.
