Classified advertising is the cheapest form of newspaper advertising. Advertisements are listed under categories, based on the service being provided, in alphabetical order.
All Central Coast Newspapers are also published online (in full page layout format), and are read that way by thousands of people.
Central Coast Newspapers’ advertising rates are relatively much lower than in other newspapers and at the same time much larger than in other newspapers, with the minimum size being 50mm X 42mm. Approximately 63,000 copies of our newspapers are printed and distributed every fortnight.
Classified advertising rates
Not For Profit Organisations and nonbusiness advertisements
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.
The minimum size of 5cm X a single column only costs $50 + GST in mono and an extra $10 + GST for colour, a logo or a photograph, every two weeks.
Most businesses choose to advertise on an ongoing basis and discounts apply for multiple bookings, if they are paid for in full, in advance. Having an advertisement run for 6 editions only costs $215 + GST, for 12 editions it is $385 + GST, and for 25 editions advertising, the total cost is only $700 + GST – Approximately $14 per week.
Artwork is free and advertisers are encouraged to change their advertisements frequently.
