All of our content is promoted on Facebook where we have a community of 2,900 “Likes” (and growing) thus far. #This is your Orange CT number one news source, if you only want to see Orange News (plus stories from Amity High School and our own Beardsley Zoo)
The two newspapers (published once per month) who boast distributions of 9,000 and 5,598 reach people in Orange, Woodbridge and perhaps Milford. Most of the news is 2-3 weeks old by the time it hits your mailbox and you’ve already seen much of it on Orange Live.
Orange Live offers a variety of advertising styles, our newest being the 3D Cube and Facebook ads. Our two banner ads are twice as big as they used to be. Material Girls’ numbers – hovers and clicks nearly doubled in the larger format.
As of January 2017 Orange Live is a pre-paid vendor. I will build your ad for you, provide you with a copy for your approval and it will go LIVE on site once I receive payment. The Ad will remain on the site for one full month no matter what day it is published. (example Aug. 17 – Sept. 17 etc)
Orange Live readers CHOOSE to log onto our site because they trust us and we have the numbers to prove how many people visit, how they are reacting to your ads, and more. The print papers are sent to every home with no proof that anyone even opens them.

… and That’s just ONE DAY.
Here is a screen shot from the site activity on August 16, 2016
By 3 p.m. on Aug. 13, 2017, the site activity was still going up
Obviously, every day and month varies depending on how much activity there is in town. So, In order to be completely transparent, I found the stats from a SLOW month to share with you.
Even on a slow month Live still attracts 3,618 more readers than the print one that claims to be #1 (with nothing to back the claim).
Of the three, Orange Live has the #1 MOZ Ranking (MozRank (mR) is a value between 1 and 10 that measures the authority of a site or web page. It is said that the average value of a normal website has a value of 3) as of April 3, 2016, Orange Live’s ranking is an above average 5.48.
Our Alexa Rank is 2,691,232 (85% and 76% better than both of the other two news organizations, which are in the 11,000,000 and 17,000,000 range)
More Bang For Your Buck
One of our ads costs a fraction of the print publications, and on Orange Live your ad is seen every day with eye-catching panels that contain as much information (or more) than a full page ad that costs up to 10X as much in either of these print outlets that only come out once every few weeks.
Overall, businesses who advertise with us will have their brand (or coupon, daily special, or latest offering) placed in front of local residents & customers about 45,000 to 56,000 times a month. We will supply ad impression and click-through data to prove it.
Our Unique Daily Views (new visitors per day) are much higher than the two local news sites.
