There are three reasons Hometown Headlines media group has such dominant and continuing advertising partners:
-Trust: We’re Northwest Georgia’s most trusted media.
-Connections: We’re in touch with Northwest Georgia via websites, email, Facebook, Twitter, our new HometownText text alerts and our partnership with WRGA 98.7 FM and RRP LLC.
-Audience: We reach the most affluent audience in Northwest Georgia.
We are into our 13th year of delivering Northwest Georgia’s most critical news and weather information to your laptop, desktop and smart phones.
We average more than 9,000 page impressions a day — and that’s not counting our Linked In, Facebook, Twitter and radio audiences.

We no longer offer prorated ads. The minimum cost for any ad is now $350, from one to 28 days.
DAILY EMAIL ALERTS
Every morning, more than 900 people receive our morning headline alerts via email. This is not spam. Every email address we send to has been submitted by someone asking to receive it. More than 90 percent of our emails go to addresses in Northwest Georgia. The rest flow to Atlanta, Washington, D.C., or to the homes of former residents of our community. They also rely on Hometown Headlines to stay in touch with local news. You can sponsor our email updates for $400 a month.
- More than 300,000 emails sent in 2016-17: Our annual report from Constant Contact — updated March 2017 — shows we sent more than 300,000 emails to our subscribers in the previous 12 months. Of those, 64 percent were read by someone with a mobile device vs. 36 percent on desktop.
HOMETOWN TEXT ALERTS
We offer a free text alert for major breaking local news. Sponsorships are available on a monthly basis. Contact us at 706-346-2031.
AD CREATION FEES:
-We outsource ad creation. Fees normally range from $50 to $75 an hour. Ad creation costs are added to the terms of your contract. You then own the ad for use on any website you choose in addition to our own. There is no handling fee charged by Hometown.
