Citizen Leader introduces Marketplace

LAVONIA – The Franklin County Citizen Leader is introducing an exciting new digital component to its readers and advertisers with Franklin County Marketplace.

Franklin County Marketplace is the Citizen Leader’s answer to the request of its customers to provide a digital companion to the newspaper’s traditional print and Internet ads. Franklin County Marketplace provides a print, digital, social media and online search ability boost to local businesses.

“This new product allows our customers to take advantage of our print advertising, as well as advertising on the Internet in an attractive, mobile-friendly package,” Publisher Shane Scoggins said.

The Franklin County Citizen Leader’s advertisers get a business profile on Franklin County Marketplace that contains the business’ website, social media links, address and phone, photo and an information paragraph or two. 

Each week’s print ad is also displayed with the profile. 

Every page view of the Marketplace helps boost the business’ ranking on search engines like Google, improving the business’ reach and digital access.

Franklin County Marketplace is linked to similar marketplaces in eight other Northeast Georgia counties. 

This means readers and potential customers in those areas will also see an advertiser’s print and digital ad and digital profile, an important promotion for sales from outside the local market. 

The counties covered include Franklin, Hart, Stephens, Elbert, Athens/Clarke, Lumpkin, Rabun, Habersham and White.

Log on to and click on the Franklin County Marketplace ad to the top right of the home page. 

Browse the categories and check out the local and regional stores.

“If you have any questions, please feel free to call me or [sales representative] Jan [Dean],” Scoggins said. “We think this will be a great benefit to all of our advertisers and the community.”
