SUPPORT A RISING STAR - SPONSOR ccSCOOP
OVER 7.5 MILLION HITS, 40,000 UNIQUE VISITORS AND A CONSTANTLY INCREASING READERSHIP
Eight months ago, ccSCOOP set out to be the first and only exclusively online news source for and about Columbia County, delivering provocative, in-depth coverage of news, local sports, and the county’s burgeoning cultural scene. Since then ccSCOOP has developed a premier news and information website that people in Columbia County have come to look to for good writing, thoughtful analysis, and coverage of the events and issues that matter most. Our audience growth proves it. In twelve months, ccSCOOP’s audience has grown exponentially—7.5 million hits since launch, over a 1000 percent increase in readership!
ccSCOOP has made an impact in the media market of Columbia County and is poised to become a major voice—reporting
and analyzing the events that affect the people of Columbia County and defining and bringing the county to the attention of the world.
As ccSCOOP moves forward, we need the support of the community we serve. To this end, ccSCOOP is launching an advertising/underwriting program that allows the businesses and organizations to show their support for our mission. For
a monthly fee, underwriters receive ad space on the site which links to their own website. Sponsors are also featured on all of our Town pages.
Connect with ccSCOOP’s ever-growing readership while promoting your business or organization and Columbia County.

ccSCOOP is committed to providing an alternative news source for the people of Columbia County and for people interested in Columbia County, using the latest web technologies to achieve this. Our goal with ccSCOOP is to celebrate what makes Columbia County unique—to promote local agriculture both to local people and to the urban markets in New York City, to explore the county's agricultural and industrial past and scrutinize the plans being formulated for its economic future, to report on the character-altering land-use issues that face the county, to cover our area's growing arts and cultural scene, and to promote the Internet as a source of information and Internet access as a critical part of the infrastructure for the county.
Our target audience is the people of Columbia County--those who have been here for generations, those who have chosen to settle here in recent decades, those who own second homes in the county, and those who may be interested in visiting or settling here. We attempt to have crossover appeal with our extensive coverage of local high school athletics on our Sports page, our emphasis on using local produce on our Food & Wine page, our coverage of the local cultural organizations and venues on our Arts page, and the attention we will pay to meetings and issues of very local interest on our developing Town pages.
Our promotion so far has been pretty grassroots. In addition to the billboards on Route 66 exiting the Village of Chatham and heading north from Hudson, we've distributed rack cards announcing our existence at the Amtrak Station in Hudson, in libraries and public places, as well as in shops, restaurants, and other businesses, and we've also relied—quite successfully—on people telling their friends about articles they've read on ccSCOOP. Response to the site has been consistently enthusiastic, and statistics indicate that we are steadily building our user base. What's most encouraging is the fact that once people discover ccSCOOP, they keep coming back.
