How to Advertise on

ABOUTTOWN.US: Our website was launched in October 2001, with complete archive of articles and links to hundreds of businesses and area attractions. Totally revamped for the fall of 2012, with a regularly updated calendar. While our online edition relies on its strong local base in the Mid-Hudson Valley, we reach far beyond that, with most out-of-area viewers hailing from New York City, the greater Hudson Valley, and southern New England. We provide true local intelligence for both locals and visitors. Available at numerous locations in Dutchess and Ulster counties, the print edition of AboutTown drives traffic to the website and the website reminds readers to pick up the print edition. And now, for greater impact on-line, you can emphasize your web presence with these options:

Web Display Ad
Your beautiful color ad will appear throughout

Enhanced Web Listings
Add a photo, logo, or other image to enhance your 40-word listing.

FREQUENCY: Advertisements are renewed every three months (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall), with article and calendar content updated frequently.

AUDIENCE: Long time residents, newcomers, weekenders and tourists all pick up our guide and check our website because they know it is useful and interesting. They are self-selecting; they read it because they are in the market for a service or leisure time activity.

MISSION: To be a practical, attractive and indispensable guide to activities, events, business and services in the geographic areas we serve. We strive to appeal to visitors, locals and tourists. Our articles are written to highlight interesting, important aspects of the community and increase appreciation for each other and our shared heritage.

We offer free design service.
