5. Lines per ad Some publishers allow 5 lines, others 2, 3, or 4 lines. This may or may not includerepparttar URL or email address. This does not mean you can send 6 or 8 or more lines and expect to see your ad! Personally, I like a 2 or 3 line ad best. It is much easier to read than a very long ad.

6. Unacceptable ads.

Most publishers don't accept ads dealing with hate, adult, racial or gambling content. Avoid these topics if you want to see your ad published. 7. Userepparttar 125060 proper Ad Code.

You will have to actually readrepparttar 125061 issue to find repparttar 125062 ad codes! Yeah! You might actually enjoy it too! Some ad codes are found on a certain day every week, others are in every issue. Some you have to hunt to find, and others are withrepparttar 125063 ad guidelines of that newsletter. But.... you must userepparttar 125064 correct code ofrepparttar 125065 week. If you use an outdated ad code, you will not see your ad. How do I know when to post my ad? How often can I send my ad?

When I submit an ad I writerepparttar 125066 date I posted, and that week's ad code next to it. Also, I putrepparttar 125067 date I can send my next ad.

Follow these easy suggestions and you will see your free ads published. I am grateful that free ads are still available. They are a lot of work for these editors each week. Wouldn't it be a nice surprise for these editors if we all submitted ads that are correctly formatted, spelled and typed?

Mmmmmmm! Is thatrepparttar 125068 sound of cheering I hear? The publishers thank you!
