ARLnow Offers New Marketing Platform for Local Businesses

September 17, 2014

Press release on ARLnow.comOne of’s missions is to provide affordable and effective marketing solutions for local businesses and organizations.

Today we’re furthering that goal by introducing a new slate of revamped but familiar-sounding options for the local business marketing arsenal: press releases, coupons and announcements.

Everybody knows the old, familiar press release. Dashed off via email, your press release competes with hundreds of others for the attention of a small corps of harried local journalists. Maybe, if your web guy gets around to it, the press release will also find its way to your website.

Now, with, you can cut out the middleman and publish press releases directly to those who work or live in Arlington. Press releases will appear in our news ticker (up top), which is always visible to our 250,000 monthly readers.

Your press release will also appear on a separate press release page, and in our 7,000-subscriber daily email. You can even include photos and hyperlinks.

Another tried-and-true way to get people to stop in your store or shop at your website — coupons. We now offer coupons that readers can view and print with one click, or view and shop with two. Coupons will also appear in our ticker and daily email.

Finally, what if you have an announcement to make, but you only have 10 minutes to get a post up on your Facebook page and then find a way to hype it up? Now you can get the word out with quick links published to our ticker.

All three options can be published with a single email. If your time is valuable and your marketing budget doesn’t go beyond two or three digits, but you still want to reach a broad swath of those who live or work in Arlington, these are the marketing solutions for you.
