Advertising in The Roar has lots of advantages:

  • You’d be reaching out to almost 5,000 people. Even if just one person in a hundred sees your advertisement, your business will gain 50 new customers.
  • You’d be supporting a local cause. The Roar receives no revenue from South; it is completely self sufficient.
  • We’ll design an ad for you, if you want, free of charge.
