Big Things Happen
When You Shop Local.


We know that small businesses build better communities, and Buffalo Rising wants to help get the word out about your small business. Sign up for a year of advertising on, with one of our Small Business Packages and we will include a FREE custom e-mail spotlight exclusively on your business to be sent to more than 9.5k digest subscribers.

Marketing experts recommend several strategies for advertising small businesses:

  • Instead of a one-time big splash ad, be consistent with frequent small ads.
  • Target your audience – “The key is in knowing who your target customers are, where they like to hang out — and thus where to find more people like them — and allocating your resources to those specific channels.” With more than 12 million page views in 2017, Buffalo Rising is one of the region’s most read publications. More than 50% of our readers live in the WNY area, however, this past year, due to the power of social media, as well as Buffalo’s appeal, we have also been viewed in nearly every country in the world.
  • Measure and track your advertising – we have the reach and the ability to track results. Unlike print advertising, our ads take customers directly to your website, product, or social media channel.
  • Good, consistent branding – Included with this promotion is a professionally designed advertisement.

As an independently owned and operated company, we know that running a business takes a lot of time and dedication. At the end of the day, advertising your business can feel overwhelming.

With this packaged designed specifically with small businesses in mind, Buffalo Rising wants to help you succeed and achieve your business goals.

* All options include one FREE Custom Email Spotlight to be scheduled and sent in 2018 (dates subject to availability.)
