About Us

Anchored by The Reader, Nebraska’s only nationally-recognized alternative newsweekly, Pioneer consists of 6 media channels — two print, four online — with an established market share in Omaha’s fastest-growing and active demographic and advertising segments and one of the most established, local freelance content provider networks. A total estimated audience exceeding 100,000 adults makes Pioneer the only non-traditional local media company in the top 10 by audience size, demonstrating proven growth since its start in 1992.

In 2008, we started using the free tool and tips from GetListed.org to help our clients rank higher in Google searches. That led to offering world-class Local SEO services, building websites and helping with social media, including recapturing a Facebook page with 65,000+ likes.

In 2011, Google’s ZMOT changed our outlook and we started offering a full range of services, including content marketing and optimization services (both search engine and conversion).

Today, we are a leading digital services provider in our market with over 80 local clients. We are a Google City Partner and regularly offer education on digital trends and tips locally, to the Association of Alternative News Media and the National Association of Hispanic Publications.

We have also partnered with three sister publication in the Association of Alternative News Media to help them unlock their digital expertise — already running some of the most active websites, social media presences and email marketing campaigns in their market — to help their clients succeed online:
