Extend your advertising power: Break out!

Reach an online audience stretching from Woolwich to Belfast.
For too long, Midcoast advertisers have been frustrated in their attempts to broaden the reach of their advertising. It simply has taken too much work and too much time to get in touch with this advertising vehicle here, another there, and several more to reach more distant areas. It required a major effort.
Our online media kit has some good news. The truth is: Our success depends on your success. The plan that follows springs from our sincere desire to partner with you in building your business or organization. We have looked at your situation and are now are ready to offer you a solution.
We have joined together three websites who have broken out and are themselves expanding their reach:

This powerful new team is ready to open a market to you with:

  • A year-round population of 117,000
  • A seasonal population of 155,000
  • Taxable retail sales of over $1 billion
  • Lodging sales of $58 million
  • Restaurant sales of $132 million 

And, as you will see in the rate charts that follow, we've done it at affordable rates (as low as $5).
Our hassle free plan lets you work with a single highly skilled and experienced ad rep to handle all your online Midcoast advertising, whether it is targeted at a segment of the Midcoast or the entire run from Belfast to the border of Bath. They are eager to discuss ways in which we might help you reach your goals.
