Why advertise on WattleRangeNow.com.au?

WattleRangeNow.com.au provides relevant content to local readers

While this in itself may be nothing different than what traditional mediums have provided, WattleRangeNow.com.au has distinct advantages over the competition:

  • Breaking stories and fresh content are available to read on WattleRangeNow.com.au within minutes to hours after they occur, not days afterwards;
  • WattleRangeNow.com.au can be accessed from anywhere around the world via an internet connection to receive up-to-date news — printed mediums rely on physical distribution, which in itself can delay receipt of local news by several more days;
  • Anybody can view WattleRangeNow.com.au on their desktop computer or mobile device (phone or tablet), and Followers (or Subscribers) receive immediate email notification when any new stories are published.
  • With connections to social media, more people can be notified of local happenings in an instant, whether they are next door or on the other side of the world.
