It’s true, if you are a new business owner, we will run your advertising for free.


These are some of the business owners that have taken advantage of our no strings, no commitment, free ad program.



We will run banner ads for your qualified new business for 30 days at no cost to you. Banner sizes include: 300×250, 120×600, 650×125 and 970×30. These ads will run throughout the Eugene Daily News website as well as our affiliate sites: Wine Julia, and Eugene On The Cheap. If you don’t have ready to run advertising for your business, we can create those for you. There is a $150 charge for creating ads but we can trade up to 100% of that charge for you.


You can advertise your business/website, a special you are running, a coupon, a deal or giveaway – anything that will inspire our customers to come to your store, or website.
