Why digital?

More people are getting their news online than ever before. In fact, digital has largely replaced traditional print newspapers, even with readers in older demographics. Digital also means we can tell you conclusively how many impressions your ad receives – and we have sophisticated tools to help you determine if our readers are right for you.

Pre-pandemic, weekly newspapers were the go-to for restaurants, bars and events. That’s no longer the case, as those products have slashed distribution and are reaching far fewer people. Our events page, combined with our weekly events newsletter and dedicated events tab on our app, is the perfect opportunity to advertise your event, restaurant or bar in the Flint and Genesee County area – and we have the analytics to prove it. We reach 40x more readers than the city’s weekly print newspaper and 4x more readers than the city’s daily print newspaper – with lower ad rates. That spells success for you.

From traditional banner ads to specialty ads (think scratch-off coupons, flyer embeds, Real Estate galleries, before and after ads to showcase home and landscaping services and more) we have a wide range of options to choose from.

Whether you need an ad designed or have your own graphics expert, we’re here and eager to help your business succeed. It’s all about local businesses helping local businesses.
