Social Media Promotion

Our social media platforms are gaining in popularity at a rapid rate, with followers reach and engagement, growing daily.

With a significant proportion of our readers coming to us through Facebook – social media is a powerful tool.

We will help you reach new audiences and spread the word about your business or product.

Category Sponsorship

We can give you access to very local audiences – advertising only in certain areas of the district or in a story section.

For example you may just want to advertise in our Health section if your product is targeted at an audience that is interested in that area, getting your message out to a much higher quality potential customer.

Our categories include local areas and news topics, such as business, politics, health, crime and education and can be invested in with an exclusive banner at the top of each relevant section.
