1.  Locally Owned Businesses and Local Non-Profits Advertise For Free (Really)

“Thanks so much! I still can’t believe that you do this for local nonprofits, you rock!”—Stephanie Roose, Marketing Director, Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra

You may be able to advertise your business or organization on A2Politico free of charge.

This news site’s business model is unlike any other in Ann Arbor or Michigan: A2Politico is all about sustainability, community, and accountability journalism. The site’s writers dig for the stories that need to be told, and provide news, opinion, culture & more that focuses on the people, issues and interests that are vital to our community. In January 2013, the site hosted over 44,000 readers.

We believe a local news site should support locally-owned businesses and non-profits. A2Politico supports our community’s small, locally-owned businesses and local non-profits by allowing them to advertise free of charge.

The site accepts advertisements and announcements from non-profit organizations, citizen groups, arts organizations and other similar non-governmental entities free of charge.

If yours is a locally-owned business, we will accept your advertisements, as well, provided that the ad is a COUPON which may be redeemed by A2Politico readers.

To submit an ad, please do the following:

1.  Call or email to see if your group or organization’s ad is one we will accept.

2.  Prepare a .jpg file 300 x 250 PIXELS.

3.  Email the .jpg file to A2P at A2Politico dot com. Free ads will be posted for up to 90 days.

We reserve the right to refuse any ad, of course, or to remove any ad at any time. Questions? Call 734-930-6854 or email us.
