About Our Media Group

We currently manage NINE weekly newspapers in Queens County and Brooklyn, with a combined total circulation of 150,000. Our circulation is paid / controlled (combination newsstand - with some controlled free distribution and some mailed by subscription) and available at more than 700 newsstands. Our readership is made up of town residents who need weekly information which shapes their local lives.

From local environmental issues, to our school boards to local youth and adult sports reporting, the Queens Ledger / Greenpoint Star Community Newspaper Group is serious about informing our readers about;

1. what is happening on their block,

2. what is happening in their neighborhood, and

3. what is going on in the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn which affects their lives.

Our readership is heavily made up of civic members, families with children in schools, people who attend religious services and people involved in community sports. In fact, The Diocese of Brooklyn has hired our media company as its vehicle to promote the 104 Catholic Elementary Schools in Queens and Brooklyn. We use all our media properties to promote their schools. It's a wonderful partnership. We have subscription programs for numerous organizations in our communities, because those people are the ones who are active. They are the ones with the purchasing power who support our merchants.

Queens County is made up of a series of towns broken into THREE distinct areas. Established in 1873, the Newtown Register (from which we evolved) covered the local news for the Western Queens community. Today four of our newspapers cover this diverse area. They are the Queens Ledger, the Glendale Register, the Forest Hills/Rego Park TIMES and the Long Island City/Astoria/Jackson Heights JOURNAL In 1893, The Rockaways needed a voice. Often considered 'the forgotten' part of the city, The Wave was founded as a weekly newspaper to be the voice of the peninsula. We make sure it remains the community leader it has been for 125 years.

Established in 1909, the Observer weekly newspaper of Richmond Hill published weekly for that town in South Queens. In 1912, the Leader weekly newspaper of Woodhaven combined with the Observer newspaper and the LEADER/OBSERVER newspaper of South-Queens was formed. Today this newspaper is the premier paid weekly community newspaper in South Queens covering Woodhaven, Richmond Hill, Ozone Park, Jamaica and Howard Beach.

In Eastern Queens we publish the Queens Examiner. Our motto; “we not only cover the news, but we are part of the communities we serve” sets us apart from any news agency which touches the area. Our rich history and passionate positive coverage allows us to be part of everything which happens in the towns we cover. We are the best advertising medium you could possibly choose.

In Brooklyn the Greenpoint STAR and Brooklyn Northside NEWS covers those great neighborhoods in Brooklyn which are vibrant and growing. The Brooklyn Downtown STAR covers central Brooklyn like a glove. • We publish a quarterly regional glossy 72-page magazine called It’s Queens - The Magazine

• We have nine“award winning” (web 2.1) news websites (one for each of our community newspapers) with stories, video, calendars of events, sports, twitter feeds, blogs and a Brooklyn/Queens business directory with 35,000 listings. The site is updated all day long, seven days a week by a few dozen editorial staffers. The sites are highly intelligent, interactive sites which allow readers to post their own blogs, events, place classified ads, comment on stories and interact with all the members/readers and business customers of our Queens Ledger/Greenpoint Star family. That makes much of the information ‘user generated.’ Business partners and customers become more involved with BQEMedia through our web sites. We offer search engine optimization and a business web site development plan which includes metatags, google map finding, video, classified ads, e-commerce, mobile landing page coupons and more. We build websites for businesses and make them part of our family of our news websites – which affords a healthy online business presence - all searchable.

Our Daily News Feed is called Morning Buzz and is part of the Queens Daily Newsticker Family. At 8am weekdays we send out the 20 top stories of the day that people will be talking about all day. Through our email, it's website ... queensnewsticker.com and social media, our newsticker reaches 30,000 people each day with news, entertainment, real estate and events. In Brooklyn at 8AM weekdays we feed 7,000 emails to subscribers. It is called Brooklyn Daily Newsticker.

Hyper-local Community Blogs are a way we communicate to a whole new brand of news consumer. Our company motto... "We're not just newspapers anymore" is realized through our more than two dozen community blogs. We cover many of the areas in Queens and Brooklyn with blog posts, event listings and local advertising in a much more cost efficient way for our advertising clients. Digital ads and web pages devoted to our hyper-local advertising clients are fed through our marketplace site www.Queensbusinessnews.com see the marketplace site into our local blogs. See: Maspethblog.com or Foresthillsgardensblog.com or Glendaleblog.org for an example of the community blogs we run. This is a way we are able to service the hyper-local stores and services which might have never been able to afford newspaper advertising. For as little as $100 a month, advertisers can now get an ad on a local blog, a business profile page on our Business News website and some love on our social media platforms and community calendar sections on our newspaper websites. We find we are able to engage our community members, small business owners and active families with this marketing platform. • We host dozens of Social Networking Blog Sites For Communities of Web Users.

OUR NEW MEDIA

What we do on our web sites: Social Media Marketing

The Queens Ledger / Brooklyn Star Weekly Community News Group helps companies and organizations use social media to engage with their customers, prospects, and partners in ways that have never before been possible. We do this by building online communities within our 8 web sites while using our traditional newspapers as a driving local news source. The new type of ‘communities’ are important to business all over the borough.

The NEW definition of “A community”

The ‘community’ of today is a ‘community of interest,’ not merely a community of geographic proportions. An online community might be a community of stamp collectors, kite flyers, kids and adults who are members of a sports league, a community of people who take the train to work, movie goers, dog owners, civic activists or students enrolled in a particular school. They are active, have a need to communicate with each other and have a need and desire for others in their geographic community to know about them. See www.BQElife.com for our hyper-local community social networks. Our online commuity sports network is called BQE Community Sports Desk Network - where we partner up with local sports teams and leagues to provide a platform for them to share their great sports news with others. It's available at www.BQESports.com and it's free.

STOP AND THINK...

Do you see how you fit into this picture frame we are creating? Can you imagine how many organizations who have members, customers, teammates or business associates who need to be part of a web world like this?

What does this have to do with business and the business of ‘Marketing’?

It's called Social Media Marketing, and it is making a profound impact on marketing strategies for organizations AND businesses of all forms and sizes.

Social Media Marketing at a local level – with a local news generating organization like ours (135 years of local news coverage) gives you the best chance to attract customers. Our ‘local information web sites’ are full of local news, video, events, classified ads, blogs and more. Marketing through our news web sites augments, enhances, and in some companies, replaces “old” forms of marketing. It is radically different from traditional forms of marketing in a few fundamental and dramatic ways. Hundreds … even thousands of people AND businesses generate information on our sites. They are involved in the news and information because they put it there.

Social Media vs. Traditional Marketing

Traditional Marketing

Traditional marketing has typically had two major forms:

  • Direct marketing. This type of marketing focuses on directly generating leads and revenue: Its forms include newspapers, magazines, tradeshows, some websites, seminars/webinars, email blasts, direct mail, pop up ads, etc.
  • Brand marketing. This type of marketing is “softer” and seeks to create an image or reputation for the company in the mind of the customer: advertising, public relations, analyst relations, sponsorships, logos, tag lines, etc.

Both of these types of marketing are characterized by a few common attributes:

  • They are one - way, push-oriented and interrupt-driven. These activities are from the company to the prospect. The prospect doesn't ask for them. They are "pushed" onto the buyer, interrupting them from whatever they're doing.
  • They are brand-generated. The content comes entirely from the brand to the customer.

Social Media Marketing – Web 2.0

Social Media Marketing is defined by a new set of characteristics:

  • It's a multi-way dialog. Brands talk to customers, customers talk to brands, and - perhaps most importantly - customers talk to each other. This is a new type of engagement that was never possible until the arrival of Web 2.0. It’s NOW. It’s the FUTURE. Get used to it.

It Is Participatory

  • It's participatory. Social media marketing depends on user participation - that's what makes it social. To truly be Social Media Marketing, your users must participate.
  • It's user-generated. Most of the content and connections in an online community are created by the users - not by the brand.

We offer Classified ads, blogs, featured bloggers, business bloggers, a list of 45,000 searchable businesses on our site, event calendars, users who communicate with their own community and much, much more. There will certainly be content and conversations that are brand-generated, but they will be the minority. The goal is to get your users to talk.

The Queens Ledger / Brooklyn Star Community Weekly Newspaper Media Group enables Social Media Marketing by building on-line communities that combine four key areas of capability:

  • User-generated content (blogs, wikis, discussions, photos, videos, voting, etc.)
  • Social networking (friend lists, user-created groups, status, presence, etc.)
  • Profiles. Most of the content and connections in an online community are created by the users - not by the brand. The overall goal of our company is to bring in new users by offering them a way to communicate with people in their own in-common focus. We get our users to talk.
  • Enterprise security and control. The users create most of the content and connections in an online community.

Hyper-Local News - Helping Companies On The Digital and Social Level

BQE Media Does Marketing for Regional Companies – We own a news Company since 1883

Local and regional companies have hit a crossroads in marketing to consumers. Whether it’s B to B or B to C, BQE Media, owners and operators of 9 (hundred-year-old) hyper-local 48-page weekly community newspapers in Brooklyn and Queens, NY as well as borough-wide industry association news has transformed the marketing of dozens of clients by using local news platforms in the digital and social world as well.

We publish the legacy monthly magazine for The Queens Chamber of Commerce and the Queens County Bar Associations monthly newspaper. What that means is that we communicate directly to Queens professionals as their friend, their trusted voice, not merely some stranger on social media trying to get their attention.

BQE Media distributes news through nearly 50 digital news platforms, including multiple daily and weekly email newsletters, hyper-local news websites and social media influencer properties covering local consumer news, business news, entertainment, legal, health care and real estate. Digital influencers have caused disruption in the marketing industry that BQE mediates. Since we publish hundreds of pieces of real news every day, written by dozens of reporters and news influencers, we are able to offer businesses marketing programs that include the positive news that their company engages in. We push it out on our daily news email, real news sites and our news social media accounts.

Whether it’s a restaurant, clothing store, a real estate firm who rents apartments or a fuel company, competitors and social media influencers are able to poke at your brand at any time…. And they do.

Regular marketing and branding companies who provide the service of building and operating your web sites and social media accounts can only go so far when it comes to promoting your business. They might not easily engage new prospective customers who trust you. There is so much ‘noise’ out there in the digital and social world it’s hard for consumers to believe much that they come across.

Our goal and mission has been to gain a trusted readership, many of whom pay for their newspaper to be mailed to them each week. Our publications – and in turn our digital properties are seen as that trusted neighbor who is bringing our readers news they care about. We offer the ability for your good work to be published and promoted on our multiple platforms, which reach more than one million news consumers a month. From our print publications, which reach more that 150,000 a week, to our news web sites, which now reach 900,000 visitors a month, to our dozen social media accounts, which reach more than 100,000 followers, we have trusted news engagement. What does that mean to you & how can you get involved with us?

The ability to get a million new people to trust your service.

The ability to get a hundred people who live in a building in Dayton Towers in Rockaway Beach to know who you are.

The ability to get the 1200 members of the Greenpoint YMCA to believe that your fuel company will be reliable enough to fix your boiler the right way.

The ability to drown out that tenant who put a complaint on Yelp about your building. Yep, those are real challenges we have solved for clients who used our news organization to help their brand.

We are hyper-local and we have mailing lists of people who pay to get our news. We compile email lists, lists of subscibers to our web sites for news alerts and have thousands of social media followers who actually look for our news. It’s the Wild, Wild West out there and social media influencers have disrupted the marketing balance. We suggest you used a trusted news source for your marketing and branding.

Our Association feature module optimizes the web 2.0 world for a group or organization with members or customers; they are all part of the Association site and our site. Their customers are all part of our site and their own. We want your community to stay vibrant and active over time, so we find contributors to your site. We're experienced in ways to encourage and manage user participation so you get the most value out of our on-line community.
