New TCN Advertising Opportunities
Advertising is the primary means of support for this newsletter, but I never want the TCN to become clogged with ads.That would take away from your enjoyment of reading it and decrease its effectiveness for advertisers.Since I started accepting ads, I've had a policy of only one ad per issue.I intend to maintain that rule but at the same time make it make it possible for additional advertisers to reach the 7,000+ TCN readers.First, if ad space is not sold by the day of publication, you can purchase the space at $75, a 25% savings!Second, since some have used the TCN to advertise job openings I would like to make more detailed job listings available every day in the TCN.The cost for these six-line listings would be only $50.Additional details on the "last minute" ad space are available at the bottom of today's issue.

Since this is something new for me, this is a bit experimental.One way I can let potential advertisers know about openings is by creating a list of those who might have an interest in purchasing "last minute" ads.When I have an opening I will e-mail everyone on the list and the first to reserve the space will get that day's ad.Those on the list are under no obligation to buy an ad."Last minute" ads can be preempted by those paying full-price.If you have questions, or to be added to the notification list, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
