Our monthly print paper offers many advantages:

  • We offer direct mail advertising for prices for less than one cent per household. Significantly less than printing business cards, but we also include delivery to your local customer’s mailbox.
  • We distribute to approximately 5,000 addresses by US Mail, all in Bibb County.
  • Our content is 100% positive with stories that highlight the good things about Macon-Bibb County.
  • We publish once a month in one section, so your ad will never be buried in a back section of a daily newspaper on a random day.
  • We offer generous free upgrades when space allows.
  • Your add is side by side with heartwarming and informative content that reads enjoy reading.

Our current retail rate is $11.50 per column-inch for ROP (Run of Paper) ads. There is an additional charge for front-page and back-page color ads. Full retail price for a business card size ad is $46 per placement but can drop to as low as $32 per placement for multiple issue placements.


Agree to a year-long commitment and save 30% when you pay quarterly. For a black and white ad, this would be $32 per issue payable in four $96 installments. Three-month commitments are given a 15% discount for an effective rate of $39 per month when paid in advance for a total cost of $117.

Ad Inserts

Ad Insert Sample Macon Community News

With ad inserts, we insert your printed material inside our newspaper and mail it as one publication. Inserts are $60 per 1,000 with a $40 setup per order. This can be scaled to fit your needs up to a full run mailing of about 5,000 copies. For demonstrations purposes, a that would cost $60 x 5 thousand + $40 setup = $340. That is less than $0.07 per mailer. Compare that to current postal rates.
