Free Advertising Tools For Gloucester, Virginia Businesses No 5

Here we are giving you the source files for our newest free advertising tools for Gloucester, Virginia businesses.  These source files are all licensed under a Creative Commons license so that there are no issues with anyone using these files.  We call this particular ad the "Bacon's Rebelllion Ad".  We have opened up a larger area of space for you to include your business information.  This is the largest space we have been able to open up to date.

This is the actual Creative Commons license.  It's for the United States only.  This license covers the following source files.  One Microsoft Office Word doc., that contains the entire ad and one Open Office Writer odt file that contains the same file.

  These are the following conditions for using the source files and participating in the ad campaign.  The ad campaign is free for any and all Gloucester, Virginia businesses.  You may change the font color and style.  You may change the background color of the document.  You may import and add in one or more images into the open space provided, in order to advertise your business.  You may add in text into the open space provided in the source file to explain your business to potential customers/clients.

  You may not remove any of the presently existing text anywhere in the advertising piece.  You may not remove the attribution or web site extension from the advertising piece.

 Links:  Microsoft Office Word doc. file.  Open Office odt. source file.

Again, these source files are governed by the above Creative Commons license along with our additional terms and conditions.

This is an example of what a finished ad looks like.  Once you have completed your piece, you are free to print and distribute the ad piece in any way you see fit.  Printing costs usually run at about 15 to 20 cents per page.  One idea would be to change the text font color as well as the background color into something more visual and take the ad to the Gloucester Mathews Gazette Journal and have them print out a few posters of your new ad piece and hang the new ads in a visible space for your customers to see.

  Printing of a poster, last we knew was only at about $1.00 each.

Now about the free e-book.  Bacon's Rebellion 1676.  This is what the book looks like.
