ADDITION TO ADVERTISING GUIDELINES: JULY 16, 2007
Based on the poll results on whether or not advertisements for Local
businesses/services will be allowed, the majority of voters chose Yes.
Starting this week, and every week thereafter, these advertisements will
be allowed on Monday's Only.
Of course there has to be some guidelines to this, so here they are,
please note that these are subject to change:
1. Advertisements that are allowed:
-Promoting a Sale for a Local home business you run
-Promoting Services that you offer locally (i.e. lawn care, pc
repair, housekeeping, etc)
-Recommendation of someone who offers a local service or has a
home based service
-Informative post about your business or service you offer
(including consulant jobs such as Avon, Home Interior).
-Remember, this is for LOCAL businesses/services Only. Local is
considered Lake or Porter Counties Indiana. IF you live in Laporte
County, or other nearby counties, and run a business or service you may
post this information Only if you service the above counties at no
additional charge to the customer.
2. Advertisements that are Not allowed:
-Sales for big businesses such as Walmart, Sears, Burger King, etc.
-Dating Services and the like
-Recruitment posts - no "get rich quick" posts trying to recruit
3. Remember to review your post carefully before submitting. ALL
advertisement posts Must contain "AD" in the subject line so that those
who wish not to view these advertisements can skip over them quickly.
Posts that do not follow the guidelines, or that do not state what
area's they service, will be deleted.
4. Only ONE post per business/service is allowed per week and on
Monday's only. If you offer 2 businesses/services (i.e. Home daycare

5. Please use keywords in the title of your post so that people not
interested in your service can skip over the message.
(i.e. subject: AD - plumbing)

before posting a home phone #.
7. Abuse of this opportunity will result in exclusion from posting
