How do I create my ad?
You can record your ad on your computer or smartphone. Not sure how to do that? Ask a young person.
Once your :15 second ad is complete you can email it to:
Also include the following information:
- Your name
- A contact number
DO NOT include any copyrighted music in your ad – we can’t play copyrighted music in ads.
What’s the catch?
No catch. Please keep in mind that your ad will be grouped with all the other ads that come in. We reserve the right not to play your ad and there is no guarantee your ad will be approved.
Those ads that are approved will get inserted as soon as possible and will play for as long as we choose
Any ad over :15 seconds will not be approved.
These ads are intended to support our local region. Ads promoting anything outside our region that doesn’t have local appeal will not be approved.
How often will it play?
No idea! Since these will be grouped with the other free ads it’s hard to say how many times it will play or even when it will play. Our hope is each ad will play 2 to 3 times per day in a 24 hour period. Need more than that? Give us a call and we can provide you with very affordable paid ads.
What else should you know?
Our crew is VERY busy. We will do our best to get your approved ad on but please understand that these are free ads. If you have a message that MUST get heard and be played at a particular time let us know, we would be happy to set you up with paid advertisements.
Please don’t include music in your recording UNLESS you own the rights to the music OR it’s public domain music. Any ad with copyrighted music will not be approved.
