How to Advertise
The Citizen offers two kinds of advertisements:

  1. “Mini-ads,” or line ads. These low-cost ads are reserved for private citizens who are holding yard sales or selling items like cars, furniture or other one-time things. Most ads run $4 for one week; $5 if you’d like the same ad in a second one of our papers.
  2. “Box ads,” or display ads. These start at the minimum size of 1-column wide by 1-inch high, for $7.26 for one week in one paper. Ads are priced according to the number of columns they are wide multiplied by the number of inches high they are. Any size is possible, up to 5 columns wide and 14 inches high.
    Ad prices begin with those for ads placed once: the “one time” rate. A discounted rate is available for “regular” advertisers: those who place ads with us four times or more a year. (For instance, that $7.36 one-time rate becomes $6.02 a week for a ‘regular’ ad.)

If you advertise in more than one of our papers, discounts are offered for the second paper.

An average 3,100 copies of The Brunswick Citizen are sold each week: 1,800 by subscription, the rest via newstands.

An average 2,000 copies of The Middletown Valley Citizen are sold each week. One week each month the Town of Myersville subscribes to a special “Myersville edition” for every household in that town. On that week— the week after the second Tuesday of the month (when Myersville Council meetings are held)— we sell an additional 400 copies.

Note: Our columns are roughly 2 inches wide, for a full-page width of 10 inches.
We will set the ad for free, and will send fax you a proof of your ad, if you ask.

‘Full color’ is available; $60 per paper per week.
