Advertise on Mitchell News

Several organizations have expressed interest in advertising on Mitchell News in order to reach our highly localized audience and I’m happy to report that I am actively exploring how I can best serve those advertisers.

Why Advertise on Mitchell News?

Mitchell News appeals to a highly targeted audience in the Lawrence County, Indiana, area.

Over a recent six-week period, the Mitchell News web site averaged 6,039 views per week. That’s a lot of potential customers you are missing out on!

In addition, in a recent poll conducted on Facebook, readers were asked, “When you need to find a local business, where do you turn first?”.

86% of respondents selected the Internet as their choice.

If you are spending your company’s hard earned money to advertise in the Yellow Pages (another one of the options in the poll), you’re throwing it away!

Advertising on Mitchell News saves you money and allows you to reach thousands of potential customers every week!

Advertising Options & Rates

Business Directory

We have several options available in order to serve you best.

You can receive free advertising for your organization simply by adding it to our business directory. These listings are displayed to viewers who are actively searching for local businesses like yours!

If you really want your business to stand out, however, you’ll want a sponsored listing in the directory. This will place your business listing above the free listings and ensure that customers notice you first!

Sponsored listings differ from free listings in that they include your company’s image or logo, e-mail address, and a link to your web site.

Sponsored listings are a cheap way to advertise your company:

  • Three months: $5
  • Six months: $9
  • One year: $16

Website “Stripe”

See that blue stripe at the very top of the Mitchell News site? It appears on every page and we can put your message there and link to your company’s website. Your message of up to about 60 characters (we have to make sure it’ll fit) and a link to your website (optional) can be displayed to each and every visitor at a very nominal price:

  • One week: $5
  • One (calendar) month: $17
