The Platform. is an ad-free, trusted resource for Portland, Oregon residents and repeat visitors. Our locally owned and operated site reaches 100,000 unique visitors annually. More than half of those website visitors live in the greater Portland metro area and the other half are located throughout the U.S., potentially planning their next excursion into town.

The Opportunity. Local businesses can apply to become a Portland neighborhood sponsor (no more than three per neighborhood are allowed). We will not accept applications for franchise businesses or multi-state businesses. The local business must have a physical location in the neighborhood they are looking to sponsor, or be a local professional that lives in the neighborhood themselves. We want to direct our readers to reliable local businesses options. The approved local business sponsor will be featured near the top of the neighborhood business section on the neighborhood they are sponsoring, and highlighted as a Portland neighborhood sponsor.

Content. The local business can provide up to three photos and a write-up of up to three hundred words. The write-up can link back to the business-owned website up to two times. We will perform the write-up on request.

The Commitment. To support as a local neighborhood business sponsor we are asking for a donation of $99 a month with a one-year commitment, or a discounted fee of $1,000 a year.

Application Process. Simply email us. Write in the subject line the neighborhood you’d like to sponsor. Then in the body of the email introduce your Portland business. We’ll reach out by the next business day.
