Get more results by doing more.

Infographics and Listicles

Tell your story with a few words and attractive images for immediate cognition and high impact.  Expected results are the same as for online/print releases.  Links to over 200 social media sites and RSS feeds by subject and postings on our social media sites will be included.

Tweetable Quotes

For instant tweeting of specific quotes or short, catchy messages, you can add a CLICK TO TWEET link within your article to garner more readers and spread content further by embedding tweetable quotes.  By including a specific call to action, such as "tweet this," you prompt readers to share immediately.

Trackable Links

Use custom campaign parameters for the URLs in your articles.  When users click on a custom link, the unique parameters can be sent to your Google Analytics account, so you can identify traffic coming from each article and determine which is most effective.  ROI can be measured by tying sales to traffic.

Formats

We have the most comprehensive service in terms of variety of formats we use to reach media outlets and bloggers, including posting to our owned site with RSS feeds by subject, XML feeds, e-mails, Twitter feeds, social media, blogs, CD's, camera-ready copy in 2 column-widths, iTunes podcasts and tapes.

Timing

Our distribution is immediately after your approval, starting with posting to our site, and then, within days, in the hard copy, CD or Tape formats.  Results start coming in immediately and last for several months as more usage occurs, with editors filling special sections or time slots for broadcast.

Why Community News Outlets?

Deeper Market Penetration

We cover not only the top tier media but also actively pitch contacts at second and third tier media, all supported by local advertising.  We are constantly doing test mailings to be sure we are not missing anyone. 

Reach Wealthy Suburbanites

Two thirds of Americans  live in the suburbs and tend to be wealthier and more educated.  Two thirds of Americans subscribe to a community news publication delivered to their homes.

Return On Investment

The cost of advertising in these publications, which tend to exist in the wealthiest and most populous communities, would be far greater by multiple times, than using our service to get the equivalent ad space.

Demographics

Most wealthy suburbanites pay attention to community news to keep track of local news such as sports, politics, schools, entertainment, taxes, shopping and more.  Merchants, politicians, movers and shakers, seniors, women and others read and share. 

Visibility

Weekly community news has a greater chance of being read because of a longer shelf life and fewer pages.  Local advertisers support these publications, as those result in high volumes of phone calls, emails, web hits, traffic in showrooms and sales.

Tap Into New Markets

After covering major media outlets, you can extend your reach to millions of additional readers, listeners and viewers nationwide by covering thousands of additional media in wealthy bedroom communities of major metropolitan areas.

Supplement Your Results In New Markets.

Repurpose Existing Content

Get more mileage out of the content you have worked so hard to create by expanding your distribution to cover, not only major media outlets, but also thousands of community news outlets nationwide.

Heavy Up In Target Markets

Most people don't read every page of a major daily every day so they may miss reading your article there but you can get them to see it in a community news outlet which is usually read in its entirety.

Credibility

Your message will be reinforced, with greater credibility, if it appears in more than one trusted news source.

Not Everyone Reads Major Dailies

The New York Times has a circulation of about 1.8 million.  The population of New York is way greater and you can do a better, more thorough job by covering another 600+ community news outlets in the tri-state area.

Media Events

Our Media Relations team attends multiple media events throughout the year, renewing and strengthening relationships and building new ones by following the high turnover of editors from one publication to another.

Editors Need Features To Fill Sections

Most small publications are low on staff, struggling to meet deadlines, and need stories to run as-is, as we conveniently provide. Grateful editors send links to our stories or envelopes filled with clips.
