ASPEN – Starting in March, The Aspen Times will be launching a new section called Inside Business as a free service for local businesses to communicate good news and important changes to their operations.The section will publish every Monday, and will be completely focused on your announcements and information. Businesses have several ways to participate, including a one-time, free, full-page Q&A, but there are rules that apply. Download the Guide to read more.

Important note:• Advertising spots are available in this section. Contact Gunilla Asher today at gasher@aspentimes.com, although spots are expected to go fast.

Tip No. 1: If you use this section correctly, it will help your business. Please be sensible, of course, but don’t think any news about your employees or business is “not important enough.” Adding features to your break room or investing in new software, phone systems, or physical partnerships, could be useful information to other businesses in the region contemplating similar changes, and position your business as a local leader.Tip No. 2: We know you’re busy, but be a squeaky wheel. Other businesses successful in getting their announcements published ask employees already handling internal memos and celebrations to also include Inside Business in their regular work routine. Businesses who publicly celebrate their employees also find it easier to hire and recruit quality people. Tip No. 3: Spend time with the Meet Your Merchant Q&A. It’s not a trick. We’re really providing you one free page, as long as you answer some of the questions, from the basics about your business to how you recruit good people. But it should be quality. Make sure the answers are honest and specific. And definitely get good photos. This will help us design the page and show off your story.

We are looking for the following types of submissions about your business: new hires, promotions, certifications, training completions, honors, awards, location changes, closures for renovations, etc. Please note the details included (Who, What, When, Where, Why) and length (approx. 100-200 words). Send announcements to insidebusiness@aspentimes.com or insidebusiness@postindependent.com.


Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
