Announcing The Chicago Independent Ad Network

September 28, 2011

Announcing the Chicago Independent Ad Network, a powerful new channel for advertisers to reach Chicago’s most civically engaged and influential readers. Composed of fifteen, local high-quality news sites, the Chicago Independent Ad Network is a digital-only network providing over one million monthly guaranteed impressions.

Managed by Brown Line Media, which already publishes three North Side neighborhood news sites, Center Square Journal, Roscoe View Journal and Edgeville Buzz, the ad network is one more way local businesses can target and communicate with the most influential consumers in Chicago.

Every publisher in the Chicago Independent Ad Network serves up the same size ad, 300 x 250 pixels. Also, only five advertisers a month may participate in the network, ensuring their messages stay above the clutter.

The Chicago Independent Ad Network will go live on Tuesday, November 1 across the network, including this site. If you want to reach a citywide audience of influential consumers, check here for a complete list of publishers participating in the network and for our rates.
