See what kind of response FPF can deliver...

FPF has hundreds of advertisers and many of them are repeat customers. Here is what some of them have to say:

“Front Porch Forum feels like the quintessential Vermont social media. It’s truly rooted in the community and provides the perfect platform for reaching Vermonters in an engaging and meaningful way. We continue to invest in FPF outreach because we’ve seen it work, time and time again. We can’t recommend it highly enough.” - Shane Rogers, Farm to Plate Communications Manager

"We've had 92 email subscribers on the FPF list in just 2 days! I'd say the ad is working so far!" -Amanda Cashin, Marketing Director, Lenny's Shoe & Apparel
