The Alternative Press of South Plainfield has had an overwhelming response from the residents and businesses in South Plainfield. TAP (The Alternative Press) allows us to make a real difference in our community. We are able to provide daily up-to-the-minute news delivered to the residents each and every day for FREE. This is a valuable service to our residents. At the same time, TAP of South Plainfield gives the local businesses an avenue to reach the residents and potential new customers each and every day, 24/7. As the Editor and Publisher of TAP, I love the opportunity to help and grow our local businesses as well as providing the local daily news and events free to our residents.
TAP was founded in October, 2008 by Michael and Lauryn Shapiro, residents of New Providence, New Jersey who sought to provide their town’s residents with an all-online, objective, independent, daily local newspaper. At first, the site covered just two towns. To date, TAP covers over fifty towns in New Jersey and is accredited by the New Jersey Press Association. TAP reaches over 1.3 million readers each year.
The Alternative Press of South Plainfield is a member of the local Chamber of Commerce (Tri-County Chamber) and I have been involved with the local Business Association for over two decades. TAP is here for the residents providing coverage in all aspects of news, government, education, law enforcement, arts and entertainment and sports to name a few. TAP publishes all press releases, community announcements and fundraiser events for our local organizations. TAP not only run ads for our advertisers, but we also publish articles regarding their businesses so our residents can get a better feel for their services and promote them on Facebook.
Presently, The Alternative Press of South Plainfield is reaching thousands of residents each and every day. One of the greatest features of getting your local news online is the information is always at your fingers tips. If you want to check out an article written two months ago, it is always available on line, as well as the ads from our advertisers. Unfortunately in print, the article and the paid ad is long gone, and is already being recycled. As you can see, an online newspaper is a “greener” way of getting the news as well as always being available.
I would like to thank the residents and businesses who have been supporting our efforts in making The Alternative Press of South Plainfield, our #1 online news source for our town.
