When the Lincoln Herald first came onto the scene in the fall of 2012, few could have imagined that it would become Lincoln County's #1 local news source within two years.
Not a newspaper but a website--the Lincoln Herald covers the news of Lincolnton, Denver, Cherryville, Maiden, Alexis, Stanley, High Shoals--all of Lincoln County and neighboring Gaston, Catawba and Cleveland counties. The Lincoln Herald provides news, sports, weather, obituaries, community events and much, much more. The Lincoln Herald publishes obituary announcements, birthday, anniversary, wedding and engagement announcements and classified ads for individuals absolutely free...and reading the Herald is also FREE!
lincolnherald.net attracts an average of 14,000 to 18,000 website visits per day. Many people now start their day reading the news at lincolnherald.net. Many of our readers have signed up to receive a FREE daily email with the new stories that have been added since the previous day. We don't share their email addresses or other information with anybody else--we don't sell it, we don't give it away, so those who choose to receive our emails don't have to be concerned about it causing them to receive a lot of spam emails.
Of course, it takes money to operate the Herald, but we decided from the beginning to make our money from advertising--helping businesses to reach potential customers. We're excited that our readership is increasing every day--averaging well over a thousand new readers each month.
If you're in business in one of the areas we serve--or just want to reach that big market of potential customers, we invite you to try one of our advertising packages.
Even if you (as a business) choose not to advertise with us at this time, we still want you as a reader. We believe you'll enjoy our 'writing worth reading' and our photo coverage of local happenings. We also welcome your comments--an opportunity for comments is posted with every story. Unlike some news outlets, we care what our readers think!
Our reason for being is to provide a fair and honest news source for the people of Lincoln and surrounding counties. If we can help you, your church, club or civic group, your business in any way, don't hesitate to ask.
