  • Once your account is created, choose the category of advertising and your classification.
  • Select your print ad template. For example, you might choose a one-column liner ad with or without a photo.
  • Type in a title for your item or service. Then fill in the ad content and a contact number.
  • On the next screen fill in more information about you.
  • At this point, you will see a preview of your ad. Once you approve, hit CONTINUE. Select what day or days you would like the ad to appear.
  • Finally, enter your payment information.
