Creating an advertisement is a task that should not be taken lightly. A lot of thought and preparation should be taken when placing an advertisement in any media. In print media, such as a newspaper, the advertisement you place should do the following in order for it to work properly - that is, bring in more business for you. It should: 

Clearly state what message(s) you are trying to communicate to the public. Don't try to be too vague, too clever or too boring.

State the message(s) in as few words as possible.

Use a headline that will catch the reader's attention and summarize the message(s) you are trying to convey. Remember - you only have a few seconds to interrupt the reader from continuing through the newspaper, so use that time and newspaper advertising space wisely.

The advertisement MUST be pleasing to the eye. Make sure the ad is well-designed so that it stands out among the rest of the ads in the newspaper. Large elements of an ad (headline, photo) combined with small elements (copy, logo) provide a contrast that creates a more striking ad than an ad where all of its elements are close together in size. Graphic elements (rules, borders, symbols) can also help create an ad that will catch someone's attention.
If you feel you are not getting your money's worth by having blank white space in your ad, think again. People don't want to be bothered reading an ad that's crammed with information. The right amount of white space only helps your ad stand out better.

If you must use photos or illustrations, make sure that they will reproduce well; otherwise they will only take up valuable space in your ad.

The above suggestions are provided as a service to the advertiser.  If you need further suggestions or ideas, or if you need help in creating your ad for the Canarsie Courier, either consult the art director or your salesman. We'll be happy to assist you.
