These publishers have tapped into a sense of community in a particular geography or into a passion or profession around a particular topic,” writes Barry Tanoff, an audience insight specialist with CredSpark. New owners can enhance Tumbleweeds’ online presence and engage a part-time sales ad person to continue to grow its advertising base.
