Question: Why an online newspaper?
Answer: We wanted to do something that would stand the test of time, and print’s not where the industry is headed. We’re starting with an online publication — a digital newspaper — and will incorporate a healthy mix of current and future technologies to remain vibrant and relevant in your life.

Q: Why an online newspaper in Guilford County?
A: The owner has chosen to make Guilford County home. The northwestern part of Guilford County, in particular, does not have a daily digital news source. The main character in the 2005 film “Robots” had a mantra – find a need, fill a need – and we think that’s what The Piedmont Post is going to do for you.

Q: What’s up with the URL? I typed in PiedmontPostNC.com and it brought me to PeeDeePost.com. 
A: PeeDeePost.com is an original platform for a daily digital news outlet that operated in Richmond County, N.C., from April 2014 to July 2015. This platform is being maintained for historical purposes. Instead of utilizing valuable resources and delaying the launch of The Piedmont Post, it was decided to point PiedmontPostNC.com visitors to this existing, designed platform that is ready to serve readers. In time, all data may be moved over to PiedmontPostNC.com.

Q: I know you’re online – but do you have an office I can come visit?
A: No – not yet, but commercial spaces are currently being looked at. Do you have or know of a space available? If so, send an email to news@piedmontpostnc.com.

Q: Will I have to pay to read your site?
A: No.  Not now. Not ever. Though there will be an opportunity for readers who voluntarily wish to contribute financially to do so. Reader-supported journalism is as important now as it ever has been. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration in being a part of the solution.

Q: How will this venture be successful?
A: Through readership, for one. If we have no readers, it doesn’t matter what’s published on this site. Along with readers, we are soliciting traditional display and classified advertising – far more affordable than print, and to a much wider audience.

Q: If I’m a business owner and invest in your online publication through advertising in the early days, are there special perks for me?
A: Yes. Any business or organization that enters into a contract of 12 or more weeks before Dec. 31, 2018, is entitled to our introductory advertising rates all the way through Dec. 31, 2020.

Q: Why should I advertise in your online publication?
A: We’re reaching an ever-growing audience. If you have something to buy, sell or trade or otherwise the word out about in and around Guilford County, The Piedmont Post is your best, most cost-effective manner to do so in order to reach the widest audience.
