Working to keep our readers connected

For those that know me, you know that I am always searching for new and better ways to serve our community. Through some crazy coincidences over the past few weeks (that’s a whole beautiful story for another day, though), I learned about an Alabama-based company called InfoMark.

While we are still in the early stages of rolling out the full extent of how InfoMark will allow us to better serve our readers and our advertisers, the company is giving us an opportunity to connect our readers to up-to-date information on the ever-changing news associated with COVID-19.

All the information can be found in one easily accessible link through It’s easy! It’s free! And unlike many social media outlets, no personal data is collected. There’s no signing up. You don’t even enter an email. All you do is go to the website and enter the “Mark.”

The “Mark” for information related to COVID-19 is *CV19.

Look for more information in the coming weeks for details on our partnership with InfoMark!

—aimee and the InfoMark App give newspapers, magazines, and consumer products a simple digital link providing a user with the information they need, when and where they need it! Users can now quickly access audio, video, photos, PDF, and any other digital formats from desktops, phones, and tablets from a simple 4-character code. The InfoMark replaces the complex QR Code format that is cumbersome, not visually appealing, and falls short by only offering access to one link through a camera-based device. The alphanumeric code will follow the star key when listed within media or on a product; for example, *INFO.  A user simply goes to and enters the four-character code and is presented with useful and desired information!

The introductory InfoMark video is located at: or within the Mark *INFO at

Users desire a digital link to the specific information without the complexity and confusion of surfing the web. InfoMark was created to quickly deliver that specific desired digital content. and the InfoMark apps are digitally linked and allow users to create Marks, view Marks, view Mark history and “favorite” Marks.
