POLICY FOR ADVERTISING IN AGRICULTURAL REVIEW
Following are guidelines for advertising in the Agricultural Review, effective January 1, 2009. Adherence to these rules will ensure quick processing of ads. All ads that do not meet the following guidelines will be rejected.
- Advertising is a service to North Carolina residents only. A North Carolina address and phone number are required for submitting ads.
- There is no fee for advertising.
- The editor or advertising manager reserves the right to accept or reject any ad and to edit ads to meet requirements or space limitations.
- Priority will be given to ads that are strictly related to agriculture.
- Advertisers must limit their ads to 30 words or less. This includes first and last name of advertiser, complete address and phone number with area code.
- Ads must include first and last name (not farm name) and phone number. A mailing address may be substituted for a phone number in the ad, but advertisers must provide a phone number with their ad submission. Advertisers who wish to list a cell phone number in their ad must also provide a home phone number, even if the home number is not to appear in the ad.
- Ads will be published in one issue only. Ads that are to be repeated must be submitted for each issue.
- Only two ads per family per issue will be accepted. Family refers to all individuals sharing the same residence, mailing address or home telephone number. These ads must be under separate categories.
- All "For Sale" and "For Rent" ads must have a price or price range.
- The ad deadline is midnight on the first working day of the month prior to publication. For example, if you want your ad to be published in the September issue, we must receive it by midnight the first working day of August. For additional information, see the deadline calendar below.
