About HomeTownTimes.com

Your Online Community News, Advertising, and Business Resource

HomeTownTimes.com is a national online news and community publications franchisor, operating more than 500 internet-based news sites across the United States.

National news sites, even the big city papers, don’t build community.
HomeTownTimes.com is "hyperlocal,” meaning the site features news that
is happening in your neighborhood, and local businesses have more direct
access to their target audience. 


At HomeTownTimes.com, we have already developed the technology and
format that works. The low-cost, home-based business is a turn-key
franchise operation. No prior newspaper or technical experience is
required. We teach new franchisees all they need to know about
operations, marketing and maintaining their local news and business
information site.


Franchisees enjoy several avenues for income through various
advertising and sponsorship opportunities. These may include but are not
limited to display ads, classifieds, events, text links to ads, list
rental, affiliate programs and more.
