     When it comes to advertising, marketing and promotion, the Internet is inarguably one of the most effective and powerful mediums at your disposal. In this day & age, however, spending your advertising dollars wisely is of the utmost importance ... and choosing the right websites to advertise on or otherwise support can mean the difference between money well-spent and money wasted. Are you reaching the people you want or need to? Are your ads getting lost in a sea of others? Are you being given proper consideration, guidance and assistance as an advertiser? Are you being shown big numbers and confusing statistics, but not seeing results?
     At BilltownLIVE, we've made the conscious decision to limit the number of ads on any given page, to properly place ads on pages with related content, and to only work with and support local advertisers. On BilltownLIVE, your ads won't be competing with national chains or corporate entities for attention, we do not make use of Google Ads, pop-ups or irrelevant “pay-per-click” linked ads, and because we are "focal on local," your ads will be reaching the thousands of people you most want to reach ... the people that live in, work in and visit this area, and that will patronize your establishment, utilize your services, buy your goods, attend your event, or join your cause.
     In fact, we are so committed to supporting local prosperity and community enhancement that we'll tell you if our website isn't a good "fit" for you, and we'll even make recommendations as to where you could better invest your advertising dollars to achieve the success you're hoping for.
     By partnering with, sponsoring, or advertising on BilltownLIVE, you'll not only be spending your advertising dollars very wisely, you'll also be supporting our community-minded goals toward playing an important role in the ongoing renaissance of Williamsport and toward enhancing the quality of life in our community.
     Please feel free to read more about us, and we'll look forward to hearing from you. Contact us today!
 
  A guaranteed, targeted audience of local & regional residents & visitors.
  Thousands of people visit BilltownLIVE.com every month ... regularly ... and they stay on our website five times
    longer than the Internet average. We have the highest loyalty of visitors of any local website of its kind.
  Limited advertisements on each page of the website ensures that your ad stands out.
  We do not accept national advertisers or utilize such services as Google Ads, and we do not make use of or allow
    "pop-ups," "mouse-over" audio or image expansion. We believe that ads should garner attention by their merit and
    relevant value, and not by annoying, confusing or misdirecting our visitors (and your customers).

    media, newspaper & print, radio, billboards, theatre marquees, brochures & show programs, strategically placed
    marketing materials such as posters, handbills and business cards, direct linkage to us on a variety of other
