Three different ways to advertise:

1. Display ads are placed among the articles. They vary in size and may be color. They are easy for readers to see. Half, quarter or full page ads offer more room to get your marketing message across and are more visible to consumers.

2. Classified Display ads are placed in the Classified section only but stand out because of artwork or border. These ads are typically sold by the column inch. While smaller than a Display ad, when properly crafted they can still catch a reader's attention. This type of advertising is well suited for offering special coupons or for announcements of an upcoming sale/event.

3. Classified Line ads are bi-line ads in the classified section and the most inexpensive form of advertising. This kind of ad is ideal for marketing single products, help wanted, daycare, etc.
