If you are sending in an Advert, Just like you see in the newspapers Classified's, our automatic program that places your advert on the website, allows you to have 3 paragraphs. Idealy:-
- Place the 1st blank line after your "HEADING";
- an optional 2nd blank line amongst your goods/service;
- then the 3rd blank line before your "Contact Details:-" at the end.
Anything other than all this, requires a LOT of time consuming manual intervention.
You can use Capitals to draw attention to your company name/important words.
Please submit your advert as pure text - eg. from Notepad, or if you are using a word-processor, "Save As" a .txt file.
Do not start a line nor use: * Asterix's, - dashes nor _ Underlines. ie no • Bullet-points! Dont use ... Dot Dot Dot, or several exclamations!!! or Question marks ??? (We have to manually remove all of these).
As you are submitting your advert as pure-text, your font will be Courier, you cannot use colour, bold, Italics, pictures, etc, and you can only use the charcters actually "seen" on your keyboard eg no "Open Quotes", no ½ "half", no Ë "E with a Kopie above it", no ° "degree" symbol, etc. (We have to manually remove all of these and change them to normal keyboard characters which takes us hours).
