"I Want My Ad In NOW, Not LATER!"

Written by BJ Evans

If you've done any ezine advertising for a while, especially free ads, sooner or later you may receive something like this fromrepparttar publisher, "Your ad is scheduled to appear inrepparttar 101104 Oct.15 issue."

Now you're thinking that this can't be, because right now it's only Aug.15. "I have to wait 2 months for my ad to come out? No way am I going to wait that long. It won't do me any good 2 months from now."

You could be wrong. Very wrong.

There are several factors to consider here. Number 1 might berepparttar 101105 fact thatrepparttar 101106 ad is FREE! You can't overlook that! Number 2 is that free ads are placed on a 'first come, first served' basis.

Number 3: It's common knowledge that we need to advertise on a continuous basis, not just when we feel like it. That means week after week after week. And planning ahead. Doesn't matter if it's free ads or paid, you have to keep at it, regularly.

So, in our scenario above, let's break it down and see how waiting 10 weeks will benefit you inrepparttar 101107 long run. (It's not as bad as you might think.)

Remember, you placed that ad on Friday, Aug. 11. And on Sat., Aug.12 you gotrepparttar 101108 above notice that your ad won't appear untilrepparttar 101109 Oct. 15 issue. Here's how you can "catch up."

You placed your ad on Friday,repparttar 101110 11th. So, EVERY Friday, you place your ad again. Andrepparttar 101111 next Friday, andrepparttar 101112 next. Always on Friday. (NOTE: these days and dates are only for example. You'll naturally have your own ad schedule.)

Now, after waiting 10 weeks, and placingrepparttar 101113 ad religiously every Friday, Oct. 15 finally rolls around, and your ad appears. But see what you've gained by placing it every Friday for that 10-week "waiting" period. Your NEXT ad appears on Oct. 22, andrepparttar 101114 next on Oct. 29, and so on. (Again, it's first come, first served.) Sure, you had to wait 10 weeks. But isn't it worth it? Now allrepparttar 101115 ads you've been placing are beginning to appear.
