Weelunk’s mission is to support the revitalization of Wheeling, W.Va., by creating a platform for making connections and focusing on positivity.  We have been successful in sustaining our mission through revenue generated by advertising sales from local businesses and organizations like our new partners, The Wheeling Arts Fest and DePasqule’s Trattoria.  Weelunk has proven its ability to reach a local market (a younger, digitally engaged demographic that is searching for positive stories) that traditional forms of advertising have a hard time accessing.  Here are some statistics that we feel are indicators that Weelunk.com is a great piece of any local establishment’s marketing puzzle.

Our ad spaces differ from other online sites that have rotating or annoying pop-ups.  We have no more than four exclusive spots in each section, and our ads do not rotate.  If you are interested in advertising,  or if you would like to contribute a story, please contact us at weelunk@weelunk.com.  We look forward to hearing from you and hope you are just as excited as we are for the next six months.

    I just started Weelunk as a daily read in late March.
    Only six months old!?
    Who would have guessed? Not I.

    Keep up the good work, you are off to great start.

      My husband came home from his weekly meeting at Wheeling Rotary and told me about WEELUNK, so I just checked it out for the first time. Great job, for sure! I look forward to future offerings. Thank you for doing this.
