January Traffic Up 20% over 2014 as CFN Celebrates our 6th Anniversary – FEB 9, 2015

CFN Panic Button 2013-05-13

OMG we made it to six!     CFN celebrates our 6th Anniversary today with a special ad deal below.

What we really want to celebrate is the amazing support from you, our amazing viewers!

In January 2015 CFN had 72,602 Unique Visitors who dropped by CFN 233,505 times and clicked on 1,331,424 pages (does not count additional non human traffic of 1,415,496 page views)  burning through 190.86 GB of bandwidth.

That’s a lot of traffic that your business, group, or organization missed.  There is no media that offers a wider audience locally than CFN.

Isn’t it time that you were noticed and in these tough times spend your ad dollars where the public is, especially  when those ad dollars are public ones?

Can imagine companies like Loblaws, Walmart, Staples, Sobey’s, Farm Boy, Shoppers Drugmart spending thousands per week to print and then distribute their flyers via ad bag?   I live in Downtown Cornwall and we haven’t received ours in over a month.  Crazy!   Imagine how much savings could be passed onto consumers if some of these outfits had their flyers on CFN or at least a banner pointing to them?

As a matter of fact our viewers will have a say in what our budget will be this year.  It’s that time to hit you guys up for Subscription donations so we can finalize our 2015 budget.


Every subscription helps.  For as little as $25 per year you can help us bring in new writers and keep bringing you the news you clearly want.   A print subscription to the Freeholder is $130 per year.   Isn’t CFN worth $100 to you?

Please click the Paypal button above or we can accept e-Interac transfers. (info@cornwallfreenews.com)
