A uniquely effective news venue that puts advertisers first

Sadly, news venues, even those who have successfully adopted an online presence have lost touch with who their customers are and end up sabotaging their advertisers’ best efforts as a result.

News websites put up paywalls thinking readers are their customers and revenue source. This effectively reduces the size of the audience for their advertisers.

With that mindset, many fail to promote their advertisers whenever possible, instead promoting themselves. This is most obvious when news is posted on social media services like Twitter and Facebook. Entire news stories are often published in order to please a social media audience but this does the opposite of driving readers to see your advertising.’s customers are the advertisers. Everything is done to bring our advertisers the largest local audience possible and delivering their advertising most effectively to that audience.
