It will increase the number of viewers who look at your website. These increases visitors make the other ads on your site more valuable. Also, increased traffic means increased subscriptions.

Upgrades are available in the free classified ads for an additional cost. Once a user has created the basic information for their ad they will be taken to a screen where they can easily upgrade their ad with up to 3 visuals, a map and upgraded placement.

The free classified submission process will also prompt the User to include the ad in your print publication. If the User opts to include the ad in print for one or more issues, the system will step the User through the process of preparing the ad for print - including calculating the cost. All of the upgrade features rates are customizable for your publication.

Additional costs can also be charged to post in certain categories. If the "Help Wanted" category is not free then the system will calcualte the cost for the ad during the submission process.

The free classified system is a good source of revenue and allows you to compete with the other free classified systems. By providing your users with free classifieds you allows them to expand their voice in the community and get their information out there. They will appreciate your services and publication.

times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
