The Quad State Business Journal, since 1989, has provided our Quad State region with exclusive business news and insight for the Interstate-81 corridor and contiguous counties in between. Having existed over 20 years in a 100%  newsprint edition, the Quad State Business Journal is now 100%  an online publication. We have kept  to our original Quad State footprint from Shippensburg, PA in northern Franklin County to Winchester, VA in Frederick County along I-81 and from the edges of Frederick County, MD in the east to Cumberland, MD and surrounding area in the west along Interstate-70.

The Quad State Business Journal, in its quest to be of the utmost service to our local businesses, is sponsoring several business-growth organizations such as the outplacement talent clearinghouse of the Business Solution Network among coming 2014 projects. The Quad State Business Journal proudly takes a proactive 5-Fold stance for local and regional business organizations. Our simple 5-Fold mission is to aid any organization that will help businesses,  1)   Obtain more customers, patients, etc.;  2) Increase the spend of those customers; 3)Increase the number of customer visits; 4) Develop more referrals; and 5) Help employees become more valuable to the organization.

Our ad placement options are currently limited to banner ads.  We have near term plans to expand into text based ads, sponsored posts and video ads.  If you have immediate requirements in those areas please contact our Support Desk and we will be happy to discuss either accelerating our expansion into those areas or to providing a custom solution.  Also, our posted pricing has been established to accommodate limited advertising campaigns of short to moderate length.  Should your requirements include either broader coverage (site-wise) or  a longer duration we will be happy to discuss (Support Desk) your needs and offer a custom pricing solution.
