How we make money?
Through advertising and sponsorship. We cannot do this without support from our sponsors and those who take up paid advertising positions throughout the online paper. Whilst a lot of sections are Free e.g. Not-For-Profit Section, Sports Section, and so on, we still need to cover our costs. We hope by giving a lot of Free advertising to those organisations and groups who can least afford it, that other businesses e.g. Real Estate, Law Firms, Accounting Firms, the Local Council, will get behind this initiative and support us in return.
