How Can I Place My Want Ad? There »re at least three different ways, one of which will surely be convenient for you. (1) Almost all types of classified ads are accepted by telephone. Call 442-6241 (2) Mall in your ad. Indicate the number of times you wish it to run and mail it to: Northwest Arkansas TIMES, P.O. Drawer D, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701. (3) If you are in the downtown area it may be convenient for you to drop in at our office. We're certain that one of _' these methods will answer your needs. 2- When Can 1 Place A Want Ad? Office hours are 8:00 a.m. 'til 4:M p.m. Monday through Friday. On Saturdays we're open 8:00 'til noon. Play safe by having your ad in early. 3. When Is the Best Time To Call In An Ad? Although the time when an ad is placed is not too important, some periods are busier than others. For the quickest service it's advisable to call early in the morning to place an ad for the following day. 4. How Do I Know If My Ad Is Worded Correctly? A good ad tells the complete story. Tells what YOU would like to know if you were the reader. Intelligent, descriptive ads WITH PRICES get best attention and produce quickest results. If you are in doubt as to how to word your ad consult a TIMES Ad-Visor. Point out the best features of the article you are advertising. Always feature price! Remember --the. more you TELL--the quicker you SELL! Price is important because Want Ad Shoppers know what they want and how much they plan to spend. A price creates only live responses and eliminates idle inquiries that waste time and usually end or start with the question "HOW MUCH? 5. How Are Want Ad Rates Determined?-- Want Ad rates are based on the circulation of the paper. Th« TIMES reaches approximately 13,000 homes daily or approximately 45,500 readers. A TIMES Want Ad is actually one of the most Inexpensive services available. A TIMES Classified Ad costs as little as $1.44 per day and reaches almost 13,000 homes each day. To send a postcard to each of these homes just once would cost over $1000.00. 6. How Fully Should My Proposition? Describe Always describe.your proposition as fully as possible. Try to put yourself in the reader's position and answer the questions that might be asked with your ad. If the car you're selling has brand new tires, mention it in your ad. If the job you're offering pays $95 per week--mention it. If your cow is a top producer--mention It. If the home you're selling has a large yard--mention it. These are things that your prospective customers will want to know. The TIMES Want Ad is only as effective as the sales presentation your copy contains. The better you TELL IT the quicker you SELL IT. 7. Which Is the Best Day To Advertise? One day is as good as another. Various agencies and research, ers have made painstaking studies and have come up with very similar conclusions. No one has been able to prove conclusively that any one day is better than another. 12. Why Can't You Tell Me Who f; Placed a Box Number Ad? ;j We constantly receive requests to reveal who has placed * blind ad, We will not divulge this information to anyone!] Advertisers who use TIMES box numbers are paying for a confidential service. It would be a serious violation of bust-; ness ethics to divulge their identity. K' 13. Why Can't I Decide Which I Classification I Want To ' » , ? Place My Ad Under? * Before Want Ads became as important as they are today It was possible to lump them all together without headings;,' As the power of Want Ads increased and they became an; important advertising medium it became imperative to separate them in some logical manner. Classification headings were developed to make it easier for the reader to find specific ads. Our readers are accustomed to these headings and deliberate mis-classification would cause annoyance which wouldn't help the advertiser. The TIMES or the reader. 14. You Coll Them "Want Ads" and "Classified Ads" Which Is Correct? Both terms are correct. The term "Want Ads" Is an older, perhaps more accurate description of our product. Want advertising is a market in which everyone can express and satisfy their needs and wants. "Classified" is a newer term gro.ving out of the increase in Want Ads which resulted in more and more classifications. It really doesn't matter what you call (hem--they still work. 15. How Many People Read My Ad? the TIMES' circulation shows an average dally circulation of 13,000. This means that almost 45,500 people see the paper daily. In recent studies made it was found that slightly more than one-half of the newspaper readers regularly refer to the Classified section daily. Of course, this is not always the same half. You have a reach of 22,750 readers in each issue or a. possible total of 45,500 with two or more insertions. 16. Why Should. I Run My Ad Again If It Did Not Produce Results The First Time? The market you reach through Classified is constantly changing. Just because your ad didn't produce results this week, does not. mean that it cannot do so. People who didnt' need a } haby buggy yesterday may discover they need one s:ton. · People who had jobs yesterday may not have them today. In the TIMES audience thousands of families' needs and" wants are ever chagning. An offer that produced no results' this week may be overwhelmingly successful next week. 17- I Answered An Ad In Your Paper And "Found That the Number Published Was ·;' Wrong. What Should I Do? - Mistakes are occasionally made. Please let us know immedl- * ately if you answer an ad and the phone number printed is"' incorrect. We can trace back and find the right number for. you. By calling us about such a mistake you can help every-"; one concerned. ' 18. If I Had A Problem ^ Regarding A Classified Ad '··' What Should I Do? ^ If you feel that you have a problem which hasn't been re- ] solved to your satisfaction be sure to call this to the attention of the Classified Manager. Misunderstandings can develop ' and we do everything possible to correct them. If you have·* any questions about the manner in which your ad was handled, be sure to have them answered to your satisfaction, .' : . Open Monday Thru Saturday 10 A.M. Until 9 P.M. 8. Why Didn't I Get Results From My Ad? Although, by and large, the results from TIMES Want Adr are remarkable, occasionally you will find that your ad brings no response. There could be several reasons. It may be wise to reword your ad to make it more attractive. Then again, it may just be that no one was in the market for your particular offer at the time your ad ran. In this case it would be wise to hold your ad for a week or two, then try again. In any event TIMES Classified Ads are read by thousands of people every day. Make your offer attractive, give it a fair chance by. scheduling it for seven days, and if there is a market for what you offer--The TIMES will find it. 9. Do You Accept Any fi "~ No, we quite often turn down ads. We try to get complete information on any ad that sounds misleading or offers fantastic returns on investments. We feel we have an obligation to protect our readers from false or misleading advertising. We edit and reject certain ads each week. Should .you experience any misrepresentation or fraud in connection with any advertisement notify the Classified Advertising Manager immediately. 10. What Happens If You Make A Mistake In My Ad? We correct it. But--errors must be reported Immediately as w« are responsible for only one (1) incorrect insertion. Typists ·nd printers are human, therefore, mistakes happen now and then. It is customary for newspapers to make good on one insertion. 11. When Should I Use A Box Number? Box numbers should be used only when absolutely necessary. Few people will take the time to write a reply to your ad, never knowing whether it will be acknowledged or not. A box number definitely cuts down on response you are likely to receive. Some people for one reason or another do not wish to reveal their identity and therefore use a box number.
