It’s no secret that many people are clicking online for their news these days, rather than picking up a printed newspaper. Also, many people that have traditionally read print are also finding timely information online.
In fact, surveys show that more people are turning to the web for their news than print and radio. Canadian newspapers grew 16 per cent in online readership from the last quarter of 2009 to the last quarter of 2010 alone.
That’s a huge opportunity for businesses to tap into the massive web traffic on Metroland’s 30 community and daily newspaper websites that represent 115 community newspapers.
Display ads are prominently featured on Metroland community site homepages and news pages. They can be customized to best feature your unique products and services, and they target the local demographic that is visiting the sites.
The In Your Neighbourhood digital program puts your business front and centre on Metroland’s community sites with professionally written articles that detail what your business offers while helping increase your business’s rankings on search engines.
You’ll also receive an easy-to-find business profile on the popular online directory website, Goldbook.ca.
