ALXnow will begin covering the Alexandria community in October 2019 — and you can be a part of our launch!
We are doing things a bit differently than you might find on our other popular sites, like ARLnow in Arlington. ALXnow’s advertising options will be radically simplified to better deliver value to our advertisers right off the bat.
If you want to reach the nearly 3,000 subscribers that have already signed up for our email newsletter, and the tens of thousands of locals who will read the site in the coming months, check out the following options and then get in touch with Lene Query at [email protected] or 703-348-0583.
Note that this page will be updated with readership statistics after we have a full month of stats to report. Based on previous site launches, you can expect to reach a wide swath of those who live and work in Alexandria, with a particular focus on young professionals and young families.
Universal display ad package
Keep your business visible on nearly every section of ALXnow 24/7! Repetition and reach is a key to advertising success, and display advertising allows you to get a message across to thousands of ALXnow readers, day in and day out. We’re simplifying it by only offering our most effective ad size and placing it throughout the site and our email newsletter.
WHAT IT IS: 300x600px ad (free design available)
WHERE IT SHOWS UP: Almost everywhere — desktop sidebar, mid-page on mobile articles, email newsletter sidebar. It rotates equally with other ads.
$400/mo $250/mo through Dec. 31, 2019 (special launch pricing guaranteed as long ad campaign remains active)

$500 $300 (special pricing available for real estate and job listings)
Sponsored columns are not just for real estate agents, but agents love them on our other sites. Write about your area of expertise for the entire community to read — on real estate, employment law, beer, etc. — or publish regular listings of things like open houses or recently-listed homes. You’ll get regular brand exposure, build name recognition, drive clicks to your website and, incidentally, get a search engine boost.

EXCLUSIVITY: You’ll be the exclusive columnist on that particular topic for as long as you want to write the column
WHO WRITES IT: You or a writer you hire.
