Bulk Print Ad Upload
As part of our Print Ad System, we’ve created a tool for you to upload all your PDF print ads in bulk, making it as simple & quick a process as possible.
While logged in on site, simply go to the "Display ads" section , select "Upload ads", upload your ads from your computer, process and then publish immediately or schedule for a future publishing time. No need to convert to your ads to image files - our system converts the PDF file for you during processing.
Print ads will be associated with the business profile you matched them to, and display in set locations, using our Print Ad widget, as well as in your Advertiser Marketplace.
Print ads can also be tagged & linked to either the ad, or the business profile, in our interactive e-edition.
Upsell print ad display to advertisers, or include it as an additional feature of their print ad package.
