Going to be tough to sell Natick Patch will very little Natick news. If I owned a business in Natick I would NOT advertise. Maybe you should look for Massachusetts or National sales reps as that is all I see on Natick Patch is Massachusetts and National news!

Agreed - I hate this new format of Patch with news from all over rather than news from the town in which I live. It used to be great to post school fundraising events on here but with the change, I doubt anyone is even reading past the headline anymore.

How about re-hiring all of the local editors you downsized? The Patch is a waste of time in Easton now. I'd much rather go online to the Easton Journal website. Such a shame too, because the format is so open to the community. But, if there's no local news, there's no reason to read the Patch regularly.

For $0 salary a year you can be a glorified telemarketer calling people that don't want to hear from you all day for a failing company that has experienced major layoffs in the last year. But wait, there's more....

I agree. Sadly, what started out as a great hyper-local news site is now just re-packaging the same national and state-wide stories on all of its sites. There is no local coverage and no local news anymore. it makes no sense for a local business to advertise here, making a sales job pretty difficult.
