The Chicago Independent Media Alliance is partnering with Public Narrative to create a Chicago Media Directory. Our goal is to utilize this free media directory as a database to feature all of Chicagoland’s independent and local media outlets in one central website. Our intended audiences include businesses, government, foundations and other entities that are looking to advertise in, give grants to—or support in other ways—local outlets. Our end goal with this site is to create an online space for all of Chicago’s independent local outlets to feature their outlet statistics and audience demographics in hopes to increase audience and support. It is no cost to include your data. All questions are optional, but we highly encourage outlets to complete as much data as possible. Our goal is to launch the media guide at the start of the new year.
This survey is serving two purposes: First, a portion of the information will be used for a FREE business-focused CIMA website where we direct potential advertisers, funders, and supporters to your information and websites. Second, we will aggregate all of the data into the annual CIMA report (so not separated by outlet). By completing this survey, you are allowing the data to be used in this way. At any point, you can change or remove information from the CIMA website.
