… and help support local nonprofits and empower student journalists, too!

The mission of The Apopka Voice is to engage with relevancy, inform with integrity, and inspire greater good at all levels of the community. This mission goes beyond our honest reporting, and encompasses all we do, including our service-centered partnerships with advertisers. Our valued relationships with local businesses drives us to provide opportunities that empower businesses to engage and grow in our community. Advertising isn't just about "doing business” for us, but about genuine care for those that are the backbone of our community – local-centered businesses like you.

As experts in branding and digital marketing, our 4-prong approach gets results: (1) Strategically-placed digital ads; (2) targeted and powerful social media connections; (3) daily subscriber-based newsletter engagement; and (4) the opportunity for you to share your industry expertise through articles published and shared, creating top-of-mind awareness with our hyper-local audience. We hope that through our partnership you will find new ways to connect with your potential client-base and become an influential voice in your specialization.

With the majority of our audience being Apopka residents, we see incredible levels of engagement throughout our online presence. With an average of 50,000+ monthly readers, our CTR (click through rate) of our ads sees exceptional rates for our advertising partners! We are so proud of the direct contact we offer our clients and hope to provide the same points of contact to businesses like yours!

How we support Apopka charities & student journalists, thanks to our local advertising partners like you!

When COVID-19 hit in 2020, local nonprofit organizations became increasingly vital to Apopka, due to the increased amount of people in need. That's why The Apopka Voice began a more concerted effort in 2021 to support key charities and the work they do. We were thrilled to be able to provide free advertising and financial support to the Farmworkers Association, Habitat for Humanity in Apopka, the Hope CommUnity Center, and Loaves & Fishes.

As 2022 arrived, we realized the challenges facing our community had not subsided. While much was improved, we realized  businesses and families would continue to feel the challenges through it all, and it  was why we upped our support for local charities. See the list below of the nonprofits we helped support in 2022, thanks to our local advertising partnerships.

Now that 2023 is upon us, we are continuing to do everything possible to help ensure the success of those on the front lines. We believe that, no matter the season or reason, we are all trying to give our best to help build a better community, and we will be able to do so more successfully when we work together.  We will grow stronger and meet our challenges more equipped as we link arms in every way we can. This is why we are choosing four nonprofits this year to provide three months of advertising and additional marketing support in the following ways:

  • 15% of every local advertising dollar for the quarter will be donated to the charity selected
  • Free Run-of-Site ad package will be donated for the quarter, which includes 5 ads on our website, social media ads, and a newsletter ad 
  • PLUS 3 articles/press releases published and shared  across all channels
  • Graphic design services for  ads, provided as needed 

In  2023 we have been thrilled to start the year off  with the following non-profits:

Dec ('22) - Jan - Feb:  New Journey Youth Center

Mar - Apr - May:  Habitat for Humanity, Seminole County-Apopka

Jun - Jul - Aug:  Boyscouts of Apopka Troop 211 - Keep on the lookout for their ads soon!

Sep - Oct - Nov: Heartland Haven Foundation

In  2022 we were honored to come alongside the following non-profits to offer free ads, articles and financial assistance:

Jan & Feb: St. Mary Protectoress Ukrainian Catholic Church

March & April: Re-Imagine Communities

May & June:  Candy's Cats

July, August, September: (1) Armando Borjas Foundation; (2) Avian Reconditioning Center; (3) 8 Cents in a Jar 

October:  The Open Door Ministry - Breast Cancer Resources - keep eyes open for their ads and articles coming soon!

November:  Hope CommUnity Center; Loaves & Fishes; and Farmworkers Association Apopka

December:  New Journey Youth - keep eyes open for their ads and articles coming in January 2023

Recommendations are definitely welcome, so please drop us an email info@theapopkavoice.com or text (407) 415-6218. We would love to learn how an Apopka non-profit has helped you or someone you care about, and find ways to encourage them in their work.
