Classified advertising is the cheapest form of newspaper advertising.
Our classifieds’ advertising rates are relatively much lower than elsewhere and at the same time the size of the advertisement is much larger. Our minimum size is 50mm X 42mm and represents excellent value considering the thousands of copies that each one is published in.
All classified advertisements are also published for free on-line on publication date with the rest of each newspaper
Private advertisements and Not for Profit organisations
As Central Coast Newspapers are community newspapers, the cost of advertising not for profit organisations’ events is subsidised. This makes them the same rate as non business advertisements.
A mono 5cm advertisement only costs $33. Each additional cm costs $6.60 as does colour, and/or a photograph or a logo. Private advertisements need to be paid for at the time of booking.
A single column 5cm business classified advertisement only costs $50 + GST in mono and an extra $10 + GST for colour, a logo or a photograph. Most businesses choose to advertise on an ongoing basis and are charged for each one at the time of going to press. However, discounts apply for multiple edition bookings if they are paid in full in advance.
Having a prepaid classified advertisement run for 6 editions only costs $250 + GST and $50 + GST more for colour.
For 12 editions, it is $495 + GST and $100+ GST more for colour. For 24 editions, it is only $950 + GST and $200 + GST for colour, a saving of $290 + GST.
