Local journalism matters, become a paid member

Times are tough. So we’re looking to partner with 60 businesses to provide our subscribers with extra perks.

Who will this reach?

Racine County Eye has an email list of 15,000 people, 22,000 that like us on Facebook and over 65,000 readers per month on the Racine County Eye news website. Most of our audience is local. But we do have thousands of readers from southeastern Wisconsin.

What is the commitment?

We are asking our business partners to provide one offer per month for a year. On the 15th of the month, we’ll send out a Google form requesting your offer. 

The deadline to have the offer submitted is the 22nd of every month. If you do not respond, we’ll use the previous submission. Please make sure you can commit to a year. Because this is new, we need our subscribers to see the value of these subscriptions. 

Check out our social media ads

In addition to our Perks program, we also have these beautiful ads called Friends2Follow ads. We take your business’s social media page and make it a live ad on our site. That means every time you post on your Facebook page, you can also see it on the Racine County Eye. This ad comes in several sizes:

Industry-specific feeds:

These ads will be included on the front page and sidebar of all pages. We’ll also have other segments.

Food & drink feed

How the Friends2Follow ads work

We can connect any social media feed, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Twitch feeds.


You grant us permission to use your feed on our site via email.

Up to four posts per day can be pulled on an advertiser-specifice feed. Industry-specific feeds are capped at two posts per day.

Once the ad is set up, all you have to do is post to your Facebok page.

It’s that easy.
