Featured Content

FeaturedWhat It Is — You pay us to feature your business, destination or event in an online article and we will do just that — sharing the piece with your target geographic audience. Rather than pay for a boring ad that no one cares about, market your business through interesting articles that people actually want to read and even share with their friends!

Who Uses It — Success stories include Virginia & North Carolina’s US 21 Road Market event, which garnered +311,000 views from the article and propelled what was initially a local event into a regional tourism spectacle.

This option is ideal for tourism destinations such as inns and entire communities.

Good Neighbor

Due to the fact that the content of your ad will be featured as an article, Appalachian Magazine will work with businesses to honestly determine if this is a good option for them, as well as for us.

You’ll find that we’re very honest and if we feel that this will not be a wise option, we’ll be the first to tell you… We want return customers!
