Viewpoint - sponsored columns

TheBusinessDesk receives, seeks out and researches hundreds of potential news stories every day but only a selection of these reaches our news pages. Those that are published are selected by the editorial team on their newsworthiness. Many of the press releases we receive are thought leadership pieces, which very rarely are newsworthy in themselves. By their very nature they are often advertorial and seek to promote a business's products or services. However, if you have content, expertise, or thought leadership that you want to communicate to our subscribers then we do run a limited number of sponsored articles each week that appear on the home page and which are included on the news emails. These sponsored articles are often made up as a series, delivering content over a number of weeks or months as a way of delivering an important and consistent message to your local business community. With receiving more than 300,000 unique visitors each month, a Viewpoint piece can be a targeted way to promote your offer to business leaders and decision-makers.
