While local news readership is strong, because of overhead costs coupled with advertisers moving from print to online, many hardcopy local newspapers are getting thinner and thinner or have gone out of business altogether.  As a result, there is a void in the marketplace.  TAPinto fills that void, creating entrepreneurial opportunities throughout the country.

TAPinto is a network of more than 55 online local newspaper franchises in New Jersey and New York with more than 4.7M annual readers.  We provide you with the backend, training and support so you can concentrate on reporting the news in your town and building relationships with the local businesses in your town.  With TAPinto, you can easily share content with other TAPinto sites and receive advertising from them, as well. 

TAPinto franchises are affordable - - just a small annual fee based on population and a percentage of revenue - - enabling everyone from successful businesspeople to downsized journalists to stay-at-home moms looking to re-enter the workforce, to own and operate their own online newspaper in their town.  Hardcopy newspaper owners can also franchise an online site with us, as can Universities.
