Advertise

Chattanoogan.com - one of the most read online newspapers in Tennessee - is the top venue for Internet advertising in Chattanooga. With over 1.2 million visits a month, we can get customers to your website. Otherwise, they may never find you in the maze of Internet choices. 

Impressions and Click-Thrus

One law firm got over 1,000 click thrus per month via their Chattanoogan.com skyscraper banner.

Some of our advertisers with the small Premiere banners get as many as 5.6 million impressions (when your ad is showing and a reader is on that page) in a month.

Three Ad Option

Instead of just one ad for the spot you are paying for, you can have up to three that rotate in the spot. In other words, you can design two or three ads for that space. They will come up on a rotating basis. Or you can have a single banner and it will show each time your ad comes up in the rotation.

Visibility

Your ad stays on the screen seven days a week, 24 hours a day. And we can tell you exactly how many of our readers are clicking onto your website from Chattanoogan.com as well as the number of impressions (when it is on a screen that a reader is on).

Our banner ads are in rotations, so that your ad does not come up on every screen, but will be seen several times as the reader clicks from section to section and calls up various articles. With the reader going to perhaps 10-15 screens per visit, your banner ad will be seen several times.

Your ad will automatically click to your website.

Accessibility

Chattanoogan.com is free to all readers. There is no "paywall" that greatly limits the number of Chattanooga-area potential readers seeing your advertisement. There are no annoying pop up ads. 

Creative License

Some advertisers provide their own banner ads, or we can provide a colorful design for your ad at no extra charge. We'll email you the design and let you approve it before it is posted.

Longevity a Benefit

We have monthly rates, but remember that repetition is the key to advertising effectiveness, so we encourage our advertisers to keep their ad on for an extended time. Just one month may not be effective in any advertising medium. There is a discount for paying a year in advance.

Why Can't Someone Unstop The Water Buildup Problem At The I-24 Cummings Highway Exit? - And Response

Exit 174 on westbound Interstate 24 is closed again as is the westbound entrance ramp. Cummings Highway is shut as well. I inquired at TDOT on Dec. 28, 2015, why this continues to happen. The engineer’s response was that the drain from ground west of the interstate runs under private land and cover over it has caused that pipe to collapse. Obviously flow still goes through, ...

Roy Exum: ‘We’ll Lose The Senate!’

A guy who I admire and respect wrote me yesterday. He had just read my story defending Bob Corker for honoring “The Code” due to his true friendship with Phil Bredesen. He is also no stranger to my vivid dislike of the Republican choice to replace Corker in the Senate. Marsha Blackburn is no match against Bredesen on any tier and it is clearly the Republican Party itself that has ... (click for more)
