Newspaper publishers understand that online advertising, Internet search and digital products are viable and necessary elements in every business’ advertising plan. In order to offer quality digital solutions, Michigan Press Association has developed an agreement with OwnLocal, a respected digital solutions company based in Austin, Texas.
OwnLocal’s owners are former newspaper professionals that understand the value of print and the audience local newspapers deliver in both print and online. OwnLocal offers digital products including online search directories, digitizing display ads for search optimization, website hosting and more. This unique agreement provides MPA members with an opportunity to grow their digital revenue, while at the same time continuing to position their local newspaper sales reps as the preferred advertising professionals in the market.
