About Footnote

Footnote is the MNCPA’s flagship publication covering accounting news, technology trends, personal development tips and MNCPA offerings. Advertising in Footnote is an effective way to reach an engaged audience and grow brand awareness.

Why advertise?

Five reasons to consider a print advertising campaign:

  1. It’s tangible. Nearly half of MNCPA members keep their copy of Footnote and reference it later.
  2. It strengthens your brand. You control the images, text, colors and fonts, solidifying your brand identity.
  3. It reaches a targeted audience. Footnote is written specifically for CPAs and financial professionals. Your message will reach the right hands.
  4. It engages with members. Unlike websites, which get skimmed by readers, Footnote contains relevant articles enticing members to thoroughly read the entire publication.
  5. It shows credibility. Driving members to your website or business through print assures them that you are a legitimate business ready to help them solve a business need.
