Journal/Messenger to begin new campaign

The Daily Journal and Daily Messenger are beginning a telemarketing subscription drive today, with a portion of the proceeds from each new paid subscription to benefit Our Daily Bread soup kitchen.

Circulation Solutions, an Auburn, Ala.-based firm with 20 years experience in the newspaper sales business, will conduct the campaign. Professional solicitors will be calling in Oconee and Pickens counties during the next several weeks to offer residents the opportunity to accept substantial savings off newsstand prices by signing up for home delivery.

Subscribers accepting the Journal and Messenger’s three-month offer will save $14 off the newsstand price when they pay by cash, check or credit card. Readers can save even more — a total of $18.33 — by signing up for the EZ Pay automatic draft plan with their new subscription.

“Being informed with what is happening in the local area, state, nation and world has never been more important,” Publisher Michael Leonard said. “I’m proud that the Daily Journal and Daily Messenger present the news in a complete and unbiased package for the residents of Oconee County and the greater Clemson area. I encourage anyone reading this story who is not a subscriber to say ‘Yes’ when your phone rings offering a Journal/Messenger subscription, or call us direct at (864) 882-2375.”
