Sign Up to Own a Town

It’s About Us... OurTown. Unlike other community websites, you and anyone in your neighborhood contribute to the news and information that is important to you. What is the most important part of any town? It is the people who live there and make it a community. OurTown lets those people share, learn, and meet with each other on a regular basis. OurTown has sites that cover every ZIP code and community in the United States. We’re publishing basic news, national ads and information to your Local OurTown sites….and we need to find Local Editors for each community to gather and upload local content to OurTown’s easy-to-use templates.

OurTown presents searchable and trackable hyper-local news and community information from more than 70,000 locations and neighborhoods.


* OurTown presents local news drawn from multiple sources, as well as specific local articles. On each of 70,000 Local Websites, visitors will see the news and activities which directly affect them and the community in which they live.

OurTown shows national news as well, making it the “one-stop-shop” for the information visitors want.

* OurTown allows local buyers and sellers to access and search a detailed and easy to use Free Classified Ad system. As on Craig’s List, individual buyers and sellers are able to create ads for free.

How does OurTown make me money?

You supply the knowledge and interest in your community, and we’ll supply you with the tools and training needed to operate your own OurTown. OurTown licenses its local templates to local writers and entrepreneurs like you, who will become our Local Editors interested in the activity and growth of their own community. As a Local Editor you can easily sell and place ads from your local businesses. Your earnings are generated from commissions on local ads you sell, national ads we have sold on your sites, and cash for referrals of others who become local editors. You report the local news, happenings, and events in your community. The better your site, the more traffic it will generate and the higher your profits will be.
