Our New Media Programs:

The Coal Valley News has many products to help you reach out to our community through a variety of broad reaching programs like banner ads, and contests, to more targeted options like QR codes, email, and mobile. Our business directory services can be used as a website for your business, a mobile extension of your existing site, and/or as a tool to drive more customers to your site through SEO. We are always looking at ways to harness new technologies to help you find new ways to reach your customers.

Print Advertising:

Reaching readers five times each week, The Coal Valley News offers retail advertising space in its pages to access new and existing customers using a competitive rate structure. Contract rates are available.

There are also retail advertising opportunities in our “Total Market Coverage” publication The Coalfield Connection, which is free to non-subscribing households throughout Logan, Boone and Mingo counties at very affordable rates.

Why should your business advertise in the The Coal Valley News?

Newspaper advertising costs less per thousand readers than TV, direct mail and radio advertising.

Newspaper campaigns require no out-of-pocket costs for creative materials. We’ll build your ad for free.

Newspaper campaigns can be tailored to any budget. The medium offers a variety of ad sizes to fit your budget ad goals, from a one-column-inch ad to two full-page ads side by side called a double-truck.

Because newspaper advertising is so affordable, it is an ideal medium to build “top of mind” awareness with frequency campaigns.

Insert Opportunities:

Pre-print advertising is an effective, affordable alternative to mail delivery that benefits from the strong brand and credibility of The Coal Valley News. For maximum exposure, combine in-paper insert advertising with our “Total Market Coverage” publication, The Coalfield Connection.
