One of the ways to advertise your business/service/television show/product/etc. is by having a commercial air on Blueberry Bluff's Channel 9 News program. It's an easy and effective way to increase your sales and clientele base, and take your business to the next level!

--a service (i.e. Roof Raiser's Party Planners)
--a product (i.e. Frosted Flakes cereal or a newly released CD)
--a television show or other production (i.e. a soap opera or movie)
--an event (i.e. a festival that sims from all over Sim Nation are invited to)
--other items are available for discussion (I'm sure we left something out!)

This is BRILLIANT! For all the days I've served in office, I've been trying to promote business among the SUN and Non-SUN - Sim to Sim hoods. Your commercial advertising will promote businesses from all over!

Our newspaper, Simmington-Times, does the same, but it is print advertising. By all means, it would be an honor if you reciprocate business with us.

I will be taking this information back to my Hood Council, and especially Nick Michels, our Business Advisor.

We will get the word out to all our business owners about this wonderful opportunity.

That would be wonderful for you to pass on the information to your business owners, Judge Cunningham. Hopefully we can work together to bring some life to all the businesses in Sim Nation! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
