Why advertise on the-e-list?

The-e-list is a weekly email newsletter and website designed to spread the word about what’s fresh and exciting on the CT Shoreline. Since 2008, we’ve been the go-to guide for fashion, food, art and charitable events. Traditional media won’t do the trick if your customers are spread out between New Haven and Stonington. We deliver a well-heeled responsive demographic of Shoreline consumers who are always on the lookout for the Next Big Thing. Our newsletter goes directly into the inboxes of our 14,000+ savvy subscribers AND we’re a fraction of the cost of newspaper advertising.

Events Listings on the-e-list Calendar

Planning a sale, opening , concert, new menu or product launch?  Let our readers know with a listing on our events calendar. The calendar enjoys the most traffic on our website. We drive our readers to it from our weekly newsletter and they use it to plan their lives on the Shoreline. Events listings cost $35 ($25 non-profit) and stay up on the site for up to one month or the date of your event (whichever comes first).  Click here to complete the events listing form.  We’ll bill you with our super easy online invoicing system. Once paid with a credit card, we’ll activate your listing.

Here’s what our advertisers have to say:

We love the-e-list! Erica’s content is great plus the look of the newsletter is modern & cool. She is reaching a market that we want to be in front of. I love it when I hear “we saw you on the-e-list”. ~ Kimberly Boutique

Being part of The E-List has been a staple in our marketing strategy. It offers the perfect way to brand ourselves while communicating upcoming events to the Shoreline community. We get great engagement with readers while building top of mind awareness. ~ Ali Parmelee, Think Creative Group (FUZION and Zinc Foods)

“There are a lot of claims about web-based advertising, but with the e-list I have found the claims to be true. Every ticket we sell requires the patron to say where they heard about the event. The e-list shows up regularly in their responses. It’s e-advertising that tracks…at least for us.” ~ Chuck Still – Executive Director, Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center

“We have tons of customers who shop at Mix who found us on the-e-list (and not just from us advertising). We met Erica a few months after we opened Mix almost 5 years ago and we have been a huge fan ever since.” ~ Wendy Walden, Mix Design Store
