Return to About Us


Advertising online is the fastest growing, most dynamic and least expensive way to advertise your business, product or service. And in Marion County, is the top venue for Internet advertising in the Jasper-South Pittsburg-Kimball-Whitwell local areas. is one of the most read online newspapers in the tri-state area with a wide readership of over to 20-thousand visits a month from direct traffic to the site and through our social media followers. That readership along with being a trusted source for news and information can help get customers to your website or made aware of your business or special event.

Impressions and Click-Thrus

Some of our advertisers with the small banners get as many as 24,000 impressions (when your ad is showing and a reader is on that page) in a month.


Your ad stays on the screen seven days a week, 24 hours a day. And we can tell you exactly how many of our readers are clicking onto your website from as well as the number of impressions (when it is on a screen that a reader is on). And the cost for advertising on for a month is about the same as for just one single day in a print newspaper!

Our banner ads are in rotations, so that your ad does not come up on every screen, but will be seen several times as the reader clicks from section to section and calls up various articles. With the reader going to perhaps 10-15 screens per visit, your banner ad will be seen several times.

Your ad will automatically click to your website.

Accessibility is free to all readers. There is no “paywall” that greatly limits the number of potential readers seeing your advertisement.

Creative License

Some advertisers provide their own banner ads, or we can provide a colorful design for your ad at no extra charge. We’ll email you the design and let you approve it before it is posted.

Longevity a Benefit

We have monthly rates, but remember that repetition is the key to advertising effectiveness, so we encourage our advertisers to keep their ad on for an extended time. Just one month may not be effective in any advertising medium. There is a discount for paying a year in advance.

Three Ad Option

Instead of just one ad for the spot you are paying for, you can have up to three that rotate in the spot. In other words, you can design two or three ads for that space. They will come up on a rotating basis. Or you can have a single banner and it will show each time your ad comes up in the rotation.

Variety of Ad Sizes Available

We have four main ad sizes available….

The most popular is our #1 Prime Position — 250 x 250 pixels — located on the right column (under the skyscraper ads and in placement in/around social media links and other promotional links).

Another favorite is the #2 Express Ad — 250 x 80 — which captures the reader’s attention with a small footprint placed in just the right location to grab their attention.

The #3 Headliner — 728 x 90 pixels — located at the top of the page also gets high visibility from readers.

The #4 Skyscraper — 160 x 600 pixels — fills areas on the right column of the page below social media and other links and commands attention of those scrolling down the page searching for a story or while readling a story.
