Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The last year has been very exciting as we’ve worked to establish eNews Park Forest as a reliable source of news for residents of the Village of Park Forest. We have fulfilled our commitment to publish one new issue every week, and have been honored at the reception eNews Park Forest has won throughout town. The response has been phenomenal, and our coverage has grown to include school districts and other events throughout the area. This summer we have seen web page hits grow very quickly, with more and more residents finding eNewsPF.com every day. We were very happy to participate in Park Forest’s Fourth of July Parade.
Our goal is to cover news in Park Forest well. But there is a cost associated with all that you see here.
We established eNews Park Forest, Inc., and last week completed the transition from what began as a not-for-profit corporation to a for-profit corporation. While it is true that we work out of our homes, insurance costs associated with printing real news are very expensive. Membership in the National Newspaper Association gave us the opportunity to apply for insurance with Walterry Insurance Brokers. But at a price of over $2,400 for this year for insurance alone, our costs have become daunting. Web hosting, advertising, and costs associated with getting to and from events add up. The time has come to reach out to our readers and local businesses and offer more opportunities to advertise with eNews Park Forest.
Our goal is to continue to grow and establish an office in Park Forest one day. eNews Park Forest is not a subscription web site, and we want to keep it that way.
There are many benefits to advertising with eNews Park Forest. This is a busy site. The "Google-bots" and other search engine spiders, as they’re called, visit this site literally hundreds of times a day. Links to this site and visits from others have earned eNewsPF.com with a respectable Google Page Rank of 4 currently. That means eNewsPF.com shows up higher in the search engine results than other sites. And we plan to build on that. We wanted to make sure we offered our advertisers a tremendous platform to help them advance their businesses as well, and we’ve done that.
So we offer you the opportunity to advertise with eNews Park Forest. Our current ad structure may be downloaded here . Please call 708-710-9860 to place an ad.
