The above are some of the best outlets for getting your ads in Newspapers and publications. For more, simply go to your local grocery store and look at the ad racks near the front of the store, sometimes in the foyer as you are going in. Usually, there will be several that you can choose from. Just find a few that relate to the products you will be selling, find their phone number and figure out how to order ad space in their publication! Its as easy as that. Keep in mind, though, that you want to sell to all of America, not just local residents. We will have products that you can easily ship all over the USA!

There are also magazines to advertise in, but I would suggest staying away from advertising in this type of medium. I say this, because I spent about $6500 or so advertising in magazines and had little to show for it. Basically, they will charge a $700 to $1200 for a simple half page or full page ad in a magazine. With the classifieds, it will only cost you $30 and you will get better sales. I am under the impression that magazine or half/full page advertising is for those who have a large customer base and have been in business for quite a while (i.e. ~ Kellogs, General Motors, Dell, etc). We are focused on small business sales, so the Classifieds/Ad Trader Publications rather than magazines/large ads are what we want to use.
To give you an idea of the kind of potential that is available for selling products in Classifieds or Trader Publications, there are companies that sell exclusively through these publications, selling fifty to one hundred products a day. When I say this, I am not refering just to small items. I am refering to things like Musical Instruments, Appliances, etc. Now, the great news is that with products like Car Audio and Musical Instruments you can make anywhere from $20 to $70 per sale!! So, imagine, 50 to 100 products a day sold and making $35 on each sale! We are talking about $3500 of profit a day. That is not the gross revenue, but profit. Of course, you have to pay a TON in advertising for those sales, but about five or so days of profit per month will pay for all the advertising costs at this level of sales! You would still have 25 days worth of profit. NOW, I would like to point out that a company selling this many products a day, is a very large company and has a large amount of money in their supplies/stock. Obviously, they have several employees to pay, so that needs to be considered. So, this example, is sort of level that could be achieved with the right amount of time and/or money.
