Racket's Ad Partner Testimonials

The Autoptic Festival is a celebration of independent and small press media, and Racket was a natural fit for getting the word out about our show. They understand how important local arts and event coverage can be for the continued health of our favorite institutions, and their advertising team made it simple to get our message out to their readers.

Alexander Mitchell, Autoptic Festival

When we heard that some of the area's best arts and entertainment writers were kicking off Racket, we knew we wanted in! As one of the first advertisers, The Walker is proud to support the talented, dedicated Racket staff.

As soon as I heard there was a new online publication called Racket, where the cool kids of Minneapolis journalism were hanging out and filling the void for us City Pages fans, I wanted to advertise with them. Their writing is tenacious, honest, and funny. It draws in my kind of people and, probably, my kind of customer. As a new small business owner, it's hard to know where to spend the marketing money I don't have, but the exposure I got from being featured on their front page was totally worth it.
