About DiscoverFerndale.com

Online community news website DiscoverFerndale.com was launched at the end of 2014 and quickly proved to be a very effective magnet of local readers. In only two months it was serving up an average of over 1,000 pages per day, far beyond what was expected so soon.

Today, thousands of people visit DiscoverFerndale.com every day and over 90% are from the local area. As a result, DiscoverFerndale.com is able to reach a far bigger local audience and do so more frequently than other advertising venues can.

Especially when it comes to local businesses, conventional advertising channels simply aren’t as effective or affordable as they once were. And, because local businesses generally have more budget limitations than the regional businesses, they must invest their advertising dollars more strategically and wisely, focusing only on the most effective channels. Plus it needs to not require much time, resources or long term commitments.

For local area businesses, this means advertising on DiscoverFerndale.com to immediately get in front of a local, relevant audience.

An added benefit of advertising on DiscoverFerndale.com is your ads are always placed where the audience is looking. You do not have to worry about your ads being on a page people are skipping over. That is because your ads are only placed on a page when someone clicks to view any page.

As a result, your advertising message will be frequently and repeatedly displayed to several thousands of local prospects 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Catering to Readers on Smartphones

It may come as a surprise that traffic analytics showed early on how more than 75% of Discover Ferndale visitors use small devices like smartphones to visit the website. Realizing this, DiscoverFerndale.com has been optimized for the mobile visitor and ads placed to be visible to them as well as to visitors viewing the website on tablets and desktop computers.

NOTE: As an advocate for advertisers, it is disappointing to see how other websites push their advertisers to the bottom or even off of pages when viewed by a mobile (small device) visitor.

At Discover Ferndale, we value our advertisers as much as the audience we bring to your advertising. As a result, Discover Ferndale does not use ad networks. Your ads are hosted on-site which bypasses ad blockers and removes the need for readers to even try and block them since the ads are not disruptive (no popovers, popups or autoplay video) and they do not cause the page loading to dramatically slow down and ruin the readers’ experience.
