The Oklahoma Senior Journal devotes a great deal of time meeting with the community at local events. Publisher Robin Gunn and representatives from the Oklahoma Senior Journal are present and involved at over 100 events a year! No other editor of an Oklahoma publication is at community events, openings, networkings, events, conferences, seminars and expos like the OSJ is! Doing so contributes to our success in two important ways: 1) We talk with community members about what’s on their mind, their questions and concerns. This helps include the information most wanted in our issues. 2) We can directly put our magazine in the hands of the public, often showing them where to find a particular business contact inside that they need. This how we are able to help the public and help our advertisers reach the right audience.
Here are JUST A FEW of the events that Robin & the Oklahoma Senior Journal have attended… The OSJ Magazine was handed out at all of these events (only dating back to 2015):
• OSJ conducted a door-to-door distribution campaign July 17, 2017 and July 24/25th-3,000 issues distributed in Heritage Hills, Meta Park, Crown Heights and Edgemere Park neighborhoods.

We connect through this distribution on top of our 650 locations we stock monthly, our OSJ-App (text Oksenior to 95577 to download), the OSJ e-newsletter (5,200+ recipients), he OSJ Website “Announcement Page” (https://okseniorjournal.com/announcements.html) and our new radio show on The Eagle-KZLS 1640 AM.
