The Fine Print:

"This Week Downtown" – A weekly email blast goes out to several thousand viewers each week on Tuesday evening that includes information about events, activities, organizations, and businesses in the Downtown area (including South Frankfort). For information to be included in the Blast, it must be received via email ( no later than noon that Tuesday. For time sensitive listings, we typically begin including events in the "Upcoming Events" area two weeks beforehand.

Property Listings – Basic Business members can have up to three properties listed, either for rent or for sale; each listing for up to three months or until it moves. Business Plus and Patron members can have unlimited property listings. Property listings are limited to the downtown area.

Advertising credits – CapCity Communications, (Frankfort’s radio stations) and The State Journal, (Frankfort’s daily newspaper,) have each graciously allowed Business Plus members a $300 credit toward new advertising this year with the local media. (That’s $300 for either a radio or newspaper ad.) Some restrictions apply – it cannot be combined with other offers or discounts; nor be applied to an existing balance. DFI will submit names of Business Plus and Patron members to both companies.

Social Media – Each Business Plus member: eligible for feature profiles each quarter  on each social media platform that DFI uses.
