Q: Who owns the site?
A: BizSense is wholly owned and operated by Dyno Media LLC, a Richmond-based media company that invests in new online ventures and helps media companies around the country improve their news and web convergence. We’ve worked with local publications and international firms such as Bloomberg.
BizSense employs writers and copy editors with decades of experience from both the Richmond Times-Dispatch and national publications.
Q: Why should I advertise on the website?
A: Because it’s the most cost-effective way to reach one of the most coveted audiences in the Tri-Cities area. The daily Newsfeed attracts 8,000+ localized readers daily. Each of those readers must visit the website to gather data or read stories in their entirety. This means your ad is visible to 8,000+ local business people. In addition to that, BizSense attracts non-subscribers from around the country, drawing in readers from the state of Virginia and beyond. By having an ad on the website, you’re placing your brand in front of the eyes of decision makers every single day and you’re reaching the people you need to reach. Unlike radio, television, and print you’re reaching a highly focused group of people interested in seeing your message.
Q: What if I can’t afford a web ad?
A: We’ve made advertising on the website very accessible to businesses with budgetary concerns. We can customize a campaign that takes into consideration your budgetary concerns with your exposure needs. By employing in-story sponsorships, podcasting, and video ads, BizSense has been able to customize successful ad campaigns for every business on every level.
Q: What’s keeping BizSense from folding in six months?
A: Motivated employees and a solid business plan. The company is profitable because BizSense fills a niche. It’s the only daily business outlet in Richmond, a region that is growing and also recognized as the best state for business (according to Forbes magazine).
