The Southern Maryland Chronicle is happy to offer advertising space within our paper to Southern Maryland Businesses, and Organizations.We offer the lowest rates that we can. Below are the opportunities we offer. You can contact us at advertising@southernmarylandchronicle.com to set up a time to discuss anything you are interested in.

Front Page Advertising:

We offer multiple sizes and locations in each section and on the side bar.


In Articles:

We offer multiple sizes within articles. You can pick your category and your ad will show up when an article is published. By doing this, it makes your ad show up to more readers that it will be relevant to. We offer this for every category that is published on the paper.


Real Estate:

We don’t offer your traditional pay per property adverting. We have developed a system where you buy “blocks” for a specified time frame and you can use them how you wish. Example: Your company has 14 properties for sale. You buy 10 blocks. Two of your properties sell, so you just add two more. No extra charge. You can rotate properties if you want. It is yours to choose how to advertise. You can add floor plans, video, Detailed descriptions, Contact form,etc.


Car Dealers:

Same as above except for vehicles. We don’t offer your traditional pay per vehicle adverting. We have developed a system where you buy “blocks” for a specified time frame and you can use them how you wish. Example: Your company has 14 vehicles for sale. You buy 10 blocks. Two of your vehicles sell, so you just add two more. No extra charge. You can rotate vehicles if you want. It is yours to choose how to advertise.You can add Car Fax(or similar), video, Detailed descriptions, Contact form,etc.


Direct Sale’s Reps:

You can purchase a advertising block for the special Direct Sales Section under the classifieds. At this time there will be only one(1) rep per county per company. I.E. One Beachbody rep from Calvert, St. Mary’s and Charles. Once the section fills up we will discuss how we plan to expand it, and all advertisers will be notified beforehand to determine if they still want to be included.


Classifieds:

Free for individuals to sell anything that is LEGAL. All ads are screened before publishing. If your ad is not allowed or should be something that is paid, we will contact you and discuss your options.


Obituaries:

We will publish your obituary to our special section for $15.  At the end of the month, we will publish a link on our front page and Social Media. If you wish to have a stand-alone announcement published, please contact us for options.


Sponsorship of Categories: 

Want some more exposure? You can “sponsor” Weather, Sports, Facebook, etc. Please contact for details.


Featured Business:

Much like the Real Estate/Car Dealer section, you can buy a block and be featured on the front page in the new “featured Business” section.


We offer advertising for any term length. Contracts that are 6-12 months and paid in full receive special terms. Contracts that include several sizes/locations may receive special terms. Don’t see something that applies to you or you have an idea you’d like to try. Contact us. Our paper will not be inundated with ads. We will work to keep it clean and not cluttered. We don’t want 50 ads per pages.

This is not an exhaustive list of what we offer. We are open to any ideas that may bring customers to you and value to our readers.
