RiverheadLOCAL delivers local eyeballs.

Our philosophy of building community on the web means we make advertising on Riverheadlocal affordable for you, the local business owner.

Local small businesses are the heart and soul of the community, and part of our core mission is  the betterment of the Riverhead community by helping local businesses grow and prosper.

That’s one of the big differences between us and others.

RiverheadLOCAL is — like your business — an authentically local business.

RiverheadLOCAL is the only independent online news source in Riverhead. Unlike other media outlets — big corporations such as Cablevision, which owns Newsday and AOL, which owns Patch.com — we have a vested interest in Riverhead.

We live in Riverhead and we love our town. We want to see it prosper and progress, so that our children and their children can call Riverhead home for generations to come, like their ancestors have since the 17th century. We’re not here to see if we can make a quick buck — and if it doesn’t work out, move on.

Because for us — as for you — this place matters.

And it’s why we’re serious about helping your business thrive — something we can do for you without it costing you an arm and a leg. We don’t have to support the salaries of out-of-town executives who look at our town as little more than a number on a spreadsheet. Money you spend with Riverheadlocal stays in Riverhead.

It’s also why we’re serious about local. You’ll only see local advertising on RiverheadLOCAL. You won’t see any ad-network ads for national brands or mega-chains.

There are so many benefits to living and shopping local, and it’s a core part of our mission to spread the word about that. Carrying ads purchased through corporate ad networks runs contrary to that mission.

We  do business the old-fashioned way. We know every one of our advertisers by name. We do business on a handshake. We make it our business to understand your business, because you are a neighbor and a friend — not an account.

It’s a privilege to serve our community in this way and at the same time, earn a living for our family.

We thank you for your consideration and support and we look forward to a long and productive partnership with you should you make what we believe to be the easiest business decision ever.
