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.
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.
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.
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.

Our classified ads are free and include a free color picture - except there is a $30 charge per month for Help Wanted and for Realtor ads.
Advertising for a camp or clinic is available for $150 per month. This comes with an article on our site telling about the camp. The Premiere banner ad will click to the article unless you have a web page for the camp.
