You can get your message out in front of these people by purchasing a Feature Ad for a very low cost. These ads are textual, and are commonly referred to as micro advertising. They blend well into the site and visitors tend to perceive them as content rather than advertising. Successful examples of micro advertising include Google's AdWords and MetaFilter's TextAds.
Each Feature Ad consists of:
All you need to do to place an Ad is send us the above information and your payment, and we'll handle the placement on our site.
The cost for these ads varies, depending on who is buying them. We do this to support independents.

Payment must be received in advance. We accept Paypal, Cheques, Money Orders and Cash by registered mail only. You can find our mailing address here.
If you have questions about any of this, please contact us.

This generation of the Classified Ads Section was created with Cold Fusion and SQL (as always), with some heavy-duty XML, XHTML (Transitional) and CSS thrown in to make me happy. There were a lot of reasons for doing this (which I would be ecstatic to discuss, if anyone is interested), but a small side-effect is that your browser may not display it properly. That being said, these pages should still be viewable and fully-functional in every browser on every platform; it just won't look as nice. Any comments, please share them.
