Local Relevant News Free To The Community Shall Continue
If you have followed us for a while, you already know we do more than sit around and listen to the scanner and watch Pulse Point; News chasing is a 24/7 job. Someone has to get the photos, someone has to get the story, someone has to put it on the website, and someone has to keep the website working. Between fuel prices, equipment, vehicles, and our time, there is a bit of overhead we have in order to keep this going. We all decided we would never make news require a subscription to access it; we would figure it out another way,
The Madison County News Network is a complete stand-alone citizen ran news page. We rely on the commissions I make from business funding transactions through Metromedia Funding Solutions and the ad revenue from generous sponsors like RnG Towing and GDS Law Group. Today was a milestone for us. We were able to strike a deal with Dollar Tree through an affiliation agreement that they are going to pay us 5% of each dollar spent online from visitors that come in from banners or ads we display in news articles. This is a way you can show your support for us and take care of household needs at the same time.
We plan to keep adding features like Rent Madison County, the local rental listings page we plan to roll out in January. That page alone is over 100 hours of coding work, and it will be a free tool for the community. We want to do more and want to work with more local businesses too.

No one likes to talk about money, but we need to find a few more sponsors so we can keep the quality and frequency of news at the levels our community deserves.
