Welcome To Chattanoogan.com Advertising

Online is the fastest growing, most dynamic and least expensive way to advertise your business, product or service. Having a website is impressive to customers and lets them know your firm is up to date. And Chattanoogan.com is the top venue for Internet advertising in Chattanooga.

Chattanoogan.com is one of the most read online newspapers in Tennessee. Chattanoogan.com has a wide readership with over a million visits a month so we can get customers to your website. Otherwise, they may never find you in the maze of Internet choices. 

The cost for advertising in Chattanoogan.com for a month is about the same as for a day in a print newspaper. 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, or to a page we can make up for you with your text and pictures.

Chattanoogan.com is FREE to all readers. There is no "paywall" that greatly limits the number of Chattanooga-area potential readers seeing your advertisement. 

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.

We have monthly rates, but remember that repetition, 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.
