Redefining how hyper-local media is delivered and consumed.
Headquartered at Geist Reservoir in Fishers, Indiana, the Towne Post Network, Inc. is a family-owned franchise business that publishes monthly community magazines in their respective territories. To date, Towne Post produces 17 local magazines each month.
We started at Geist Reservoir near Indianapolis, Indiana back in 2003. Back then, the idea of hyper local was new and limited to zip codes or major demographic marketing areas (DMAs). Our concept at its inception was to provide a high-quality monthly print magazine that embraced Internet marketing (this was pre-social media). As time progressed, so did our business model as we found new and effective ways to communicate all month long via our website and social media channels. Today we leverage the latest in technology to insure the most efficient and cost effective local marketing platform anywhere.
