ABOUT US:

The Victor Harbor News is an independent, online news service focused on the community within the boundary of the City of Victor Harbor.

Victor Harbor News aims to drill down into local news stories from a community perspective and to provide a vehicle to lobby on behalf of the issues that matter to Victor Harbor’s people. As well it provides the opportunity for local community and sporting organisations to promote their activities and recognise the work of their members and supporters most of whom are volunteers.

The Victor Harbor News website – victornews.com.au – is updated frequently as information and news stories are provided. A weekly news summary is provided FREE to subscribers via email with links to the website where the information will be published.

ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES:

We are a very small operation, but rely on businesses to support us in our work to spread news and information about the Victor Harbor community. Our overheads aren’t high, so our prices can be kept low.

We believe in transparency for our advertisers and supporters and are happy to provide our advertisers with official reports from Google Analytics where possible on the performance of our site. We’re also happy to give advertisers information about the NUMBER of subscribers and followers we have. However, we regret that due to privacy restrictions we will not reveal who those subscribers are.
We are very active on social media including Facebook and Instagram and will be providing posts on Facebook to support some of our advertisers and supporters. We also encourage advertisers to keep us up to date when they post to Facebook so we can help spread their message and hopefully help boost their customers and sales.

PAYMENT TERMS:

We ask advertisers to ideally pay prior to their advertisements going live, but at the least within 7 days in the case of monthly advertisements or within 48 hours in the case of other advertising programs. All our advertising prices include GST.

ARTWORK SERVICES:

Victor Harbor News is not geared up to provide animation or advanced graphic design services in-house, but we’d be happy for you to supply advertisements in this format, or happy to provide you with recommendations on where this can be obtained. All our advertising costs include a basic graphic design service only & up to two proofs prior to upload.

Our strength is in our editorial writing, so we’re happy to assist you to prepare editorial for your features and your editorial-style advertising within the site. This is provided at no charge. Please note an extra charge may apply for travel outside the City of Victor Harbor area if required to prepare such copy.
