Clutch MOV is an online community magazine written for, by, and about the residents of the Mid-Ohio Valley. While some may say we tell stories about local people, places, events, and businesses, we like to think we tell the story of a region on the rise. Our stories contribute to the greater narrative that the Mid-Ohio Valley has much to offer. For six years, we have been telling and sharing meaningful stories through our ever-expanding network and we are proud to say that we reach more than 50,000 local people each month through our website, email newsletter, and social media channels.

We publish 3-5 stories a week on a website, send a handcrafted newsletter each Thursday at 1:00 pm and do original reporting straight to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Our Advertising Options
A full-color ad with a direct link is the way to go if you are looking for increased visibility of your business in the Mid-Ohio Valley. We have several budget-friendly, highly-customizable options to choose from, and we can help you design an engaging, attractive ad that will showcase your business in the best way.
For all of our ads, we can generate a custom report each month that will be emailed to you showing you exactly how many people saw and clicked on your ad. We work with a professional ad server designed just for hyper-local sites like us; all data is compiled and prepared automatically through tracking, so you know you can trust the numbers. We know that there will be months when ads don’t perform as well as others – and we want to be transparent about that. Advertising is a partnership and we want to build our relationship with you on a solid foundation of trust.
