    I contacted a number of publications for the purpose of having them plug our swap meet. All wanted us to take out a paid ad, and I said no way. Guess the Zit was really a smooth talker to get the freebies.

    Connie Swain of Antique Week newspaper countered my rejection to pay for an ad, and said they might be able to help us out if we submit a Press Release. So, I am asking the more talented members of the CRCCI to work up a press release to be used for the Antique Week or any other publication willing to help us promote the swap meet. Plus, I don't want to be accused of using the press release for my own advantage, so whomever writes the Press Release can put their own name and contact info in the release.

    While we had great free promotions in the past, it never brought us any newbies to the swap meet, but I guess we should still try, if it does not cost us any dollars.

    Is there not money budgeted for advertising? I thought that based on the last news letter that the funds were building back up after the web site purchase.

    Advertising is a good way to find new members.

    I think the current balance has to last through the next 2 newsletter costs before the dues are due again.

    I think you are absolutely right. Plus, the cost of spending money to advertise would have to be justified by results achieve. In past years the swap meet has been well promoted with little or no results, and not worth spending any money on it. Jack has provided me with the Press Release used previously and I will update the info and send it in to the various publications. Hopefully, they will print it.
