I hated reading them in text-based newsletters but never minded them at all in HTML newsletters where they aren’t obtrusive.
Since I’ve always published in text-only, I never gave ads a second thought.
But when I offered readers the option of an HTML newsletter several weeks ago, Publicity Hounds started asking about whether they could buy an ad.
If you offer a product or service for people who self-promote, or for the PR community, here’s what you need to know about how to advertise.
All ads are 125 x 125 pixels, and must be delivered as a JPEG ort PNG. I also need an ad of 15 words or less for the text version of my newsletter. If you need a larger ad that’s 125 pixels wide (the maximum width), contact me at 262-284-7451 or email jstewart at PublicityHound.com.
If you don’t have your own graphic artist, I suggest you check the Graphics Services/Design category on the Publicity Resources page at my website. Or ask for referrals on the social media sites. Or post your project to Elance.com or VWorker (formerly RentaCoder).
Update: If you’re a graphics artist who wants referrals from me, for people who need ads created, consider adding your name to my publicity resources page in the Graphics Services/Design category. These are paid listings, and we’ll check your references before you’re added to the list.
Ads are $100 a week. Order your first ad here.
Ads are due by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, for publication on Tuesday, and at 5 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, for publication on Saturday.
