Advertise on Oakland County Times

Support community journalism and reach a local, interested audience with low-cost, high-impact advertising on Oakland County Times.  With over 100,000 views each month, Oakland County Times is a great way to reach readers who care about what is going on in their community.

These aren’t just random clicks, or someone scrolling past your ad, these are local people who are on our site reading something that matters to them. Our topics cross community and demographic lines, with a nearly even female/male split and nearly even spread across ages over 21. Because we do not have paywalls, everyone is welcome to come to our website to learn.  And our nonpartisan approach means that our audience has people of all persuasions, and readers who trust this website in every corner of the county.

We have easy banner ad plans, as well as some special advertising opportunities. We are mindful of our advertisers needs as we hand place ads into appropriate stories.   And we offer some photography and writing services to help small businesses be successful.  Scroll to the bottom to see testimonials from satisfied advertisers.
