So, you want to advertise on the newest, most happening blog that Asheville has to offer? We salute your choice. Your support means that we get to eat dinner tonight, and for that, we thank you. On a more serious note: the staff here at AshevilleBlog is unpaid. We are doing what we do because we love it and we have a passion for Asheville. By buying banner ad space you are not only supporting our small team, you are supporting the businesses that we regularly go out and promote for free. So its locals supporting locals supporting locals – a big old group hug, if you will. It really doesn’t get better then that.
Let’s talk details.
Operating since late 2012, AshevilleBlog focuses on content that people in Asheville want to know. We offer up stories and media that they actively seek out – and as a newer company, we are growing. In fact, in 2014 alone we’ve experienced 500% growth. We don’t just publish our stories and photos online – we also are active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and a whole host of other social networking websites. We team up with other media outlets to provide in-depth coverage of events, so you can also find us at places like AshevilleGrit.com. We aren’t just about writing and photos – we do video as well. AshevilleBlog isn’t just a blog – we are a media outlet who reaches over 25,000 readers a month, and growing by 20% monthly. While you may frequently see a simply byline of ‘Staff Writer’ posted along with an article, the people behind the scenes of AshevilleBlog aren’t nameless. We are out in the community daily, hitting the streets and interacting with locals and businesses to meet them on their level. This blog is about community, support, and local partnership. Won’t you join us?

A different approach
We recognize that advertising can be a leap of faith sometimes, and we appreciate the fact that you are interested in investing into us. We believe in partnering with businesses that we believe in. If you’ve done any comparison shopping online recently, you’ll know that our prices are currently half what similar websites are asking for advertising. As we grow – and believe us, we are growing – your ad will grow with us. If you choose to advertise with us now, we will not increase the rate of your advertisement for the designated term. (1, 3, and 6 month terms available, with discounts available for 3 and 6 month terms).
By advertising with us, you are making it so that we can market more local businesses, attend more events, upgrade our work equipment to bring better value and better work, which means a better experience for our end users.
