Our local businesses are the heartbeat of a vibrant economy. Think Columbus First wants to promote your local business to our audience of locally conscious shoppers and business people.

Traditional advertising in magazines, newspapers, radio, coupon mass mailers and billboards may be too expensive for many local independent businesses with small marketing budgets.

When you advertise on Think Columbus First, you get:

  • 24/7/365 exposure via our website and social media updates.
  • Introduction to a segment of our community that is looking for local independent businesses.
  • Share in a campaign that enhances our local economy.
  • Increased exposure for your website.

We currently offer ad space for 300 x 250 pixel Medium Rectangle on our main side column of the home page and most other pages of our site.

Targeted placement on specific pages and posts contact will be available soon contact us for more details.
