Small ads are classified advertising published on pg. 14 of the printed Reporter and online at http://reporter.leeds.ac.uk for a period of at least 5 weeks, starting from the date the Reporter is published until the next Reporter.
To avoid disappointment, please submit your small ad at least two weeks before the Reporter is due to be published. [See http://smallads.leeds.ac.uk for deadlines].
See current adverts in the Reporter: http://smallads.leeds.ac.uk/webads.aspx
Each ad submitted may be a maximum of 40 words (including four-word headline in bold).
University staff and students
How to place a small ad:
- Submit your small ad online at http://smallads.leeds.ac.uk before the stated deadline (at least two weeks in advance)
a) Input your details, including your email address so we can contact you.
b) Using the drop-down menu, select the start date of the Reporter for your small ad to be published.
- You will then receive an email containing the details of your advert. This will also tell you the cost of the advert and the deadline for payment. Please contact us immediately if you do not receive an email.
- Pay for your small ad by cheque or cash before the deadline stated in your email – we regret that due to University policy, we can't offer online credit card payment at this time.
Cash should be in the exact amount and delivered to Emma Morris in the Communications and Press Office, Level 14, Marjorie & Arnold Ziff Building.
Cheques are payable to the University of Leeds and should be sent to:
Communications and Press Office, Level 14, Marjorie & Arnold Ziff Building, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT.
If you are a member of staff and have a specific project or news to get across to all staff at the University, one of the most popular ways to communicate this is by requesting an insert inside the Reporter.
This could be a coupon, a brochure, or even a short newsletter, tucked into the middle pages of the Reporter. Previous customers include the Enterprise and Innovation Office, the Equality Service, and the Worldwide Universities Network.
The advantage of booking an insert is that it will cost you far less money to ‘piggyback’ on the Reporter’s distribution run than to organise a separate mail-out to all staff yourself, and we do not make any profit from this service. However, there is a maximum of three inserts per issue, so you need to book well in advance.
See http://reporter.leeds.ac.uk/dates.htm for the Reporter’s publishing dates, and try to tell us two months in advance.
The cost of an insert is set by the printers and is currently £500 per insert (as of 6 January 2009) for 8,640 copies – please remember this is on top of the usual costs of graphic design, paper and printing.
Customers are responsible for organising their own insert through Media Services, but please contact us first to make sure there is an opening available for an insert in the Reporter.
Phone Lisa Englefield on 0113 343 2451 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what you need, and then give her your internal charging code. Lisa will then put you in touch with someone in Print & Copy Bureau.
The insert must have been printed and sent to the Media Services warehouse in the EC Stoner Building at least six working days before the Reporter’s publication date. All copies will then be sent to the printer’s where they will be mechanically inserted into every copy of the Reporter. If you would like fewer copies printed, please discuss this with Print & Copy Bureau.
