How to Place a Legal Notice Ad

What Steps Must I take to place a Legal Notice?

Placing a legal notice ad in a newspaper or digital publication is not much different than placing any other ad in the newspaper or any other digital publication. However, there are a few key differences that you may want to keep in mind throughout the process. This will help  make sure that is done as effectively as possible. When you place a legal notice ad it is important to understand that the main differences. With this type of ad instead of encouraging people to buy something, you are encouraging people to play an informed, active, or role in their local government.

So how is this actually different?  In most classified ads the advertiser is going to want to reduce the cost of their ad. Generally this can be done by using as many abbreviations as possible. Without losing the overall messaging and call to action in the ad.  For a legal notice, this is much more complicated. This is  because much of the purpose of the legal notice is keeping the public informed about occurrences in their local area.  Often this means putting in details that most other advertisers would gloss over or leave out altogether.

How is a Legal Notice or Public Notice different from any other ad in the Newspaper or another digital publication?

A legal notice ad is also different from a regular print ad. This is because the intent for any other ads is different. Normally to get a person to respond or buy something being advertised in the ad. In case of a legal notice, the intent is to get a person to respond or act. For instance, if notice is letting the public know of a hearing or change in the community, the “call to action” maybe letting the person know how they can attend the hearing. Or participate in according to those changes.  This type of information which  includes dates, times, and locations are necessary. It lets the community members know where they need to be and how to get involved.
