Promoting Positive news, information, events, businesses and organizations amongst neighboring communities since 2005.
Pelican Marketing & Media has been in the community publication industry since 2005. It was then that Donna Umecker, owner, proposed the concept of a municipal community publication that would promote and connect the government, businesses, organizations, and other community entities in the Alsip community. The first edition was distributed with the October-November 2005 edition. After producing The Alsip Community News for ten years, the contract ended with the August-September 2015 issue.
The Shared News released its first issue with the October-November 2015 edition. Pelican Marketing & Media is proud that since 2005, it has consecutively published more than 90 issues.
What makes The Shared News different is that it promotes and connects people in more than 15 communities and one township in the Southwest Chicago and its suburbs. The Shared News seldom relies on Press Releases.
There are 10,000 copies of each edition distributed throughout the 15 communities, the Worth Township Administration Building, and the Metra Rock Island and Southwest Line train stations. Many Partners also receive copies to distribute to their clientele. Our Business and Organization Partners thank you every time you do business with them, clip and use their coupon or attend an event that you read about in The Shared News. This community publication depends on its Partners promotional ads to keep it FREE. The Shared News is the One-Ad, One-Rate, All Communities publication.
We are committed to furthering this positive communication piece. In the coming years, we anticipate continued involvement attracting new businesses and organizations to its pages. Pelican Marketing & Media thanks our team of Partners and loyal readers. We welcome anyone who believes in “positive connections” to join us.
