Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do a great newspaper ad?

I was just wondering because I thought about advertising in the newspaper.

In my opinion print is going out of date, have you noticed that daily newspapers are getting thinner, nationally newspaper circulation is really down. My suggestion is concentrate on the web.

Hello  Chris


I would agree with the previous comment. I would concentrate on other forms of advertising.

Hi Chris, 3's a charm; I'm with James and James above--put your advertising dollars where you will get the most bang for the buck; newspaper ads just don't have a good ROI anymore.

Hi Chris, I would agree with the previous commenters but I notice that you are in the mortgage industry.  If I were you I would try to find out from others in your industry whether print ads still work for them.  People seem to be looking for ads that announce low interest rates and you could announce those in your blog or even on your FB business page or via email blast.  Otherwise, networking and building relationships with Realtors is always a great idea!

Hi Chris. First, Welcome to Active Rain! Tom Arstingstall just introduced you to our AR community. You may want to stop by and check out his post soon.

BTW, the intranet is only way to advertise today IMO. Get on all those Social Networking sites, Wordpress, Trulia, Blogger, Tweeter, Lindedin, etc.
