DEADLINES

To make the monthly publication of the magazine, an ad must be to us no later than 5 p.m. on the tenth of the month prior to the month of publication. All issues are scheduled for mailing by the first day of the month of publication. For example, the deadline for the February issue, scheduled for mailing on February 1, is January 10. There is no deadline for the web site. In most instances, your ad will be posted on the web almost immediately after you have given us your final approval. If your ad is posted on the web site prior to the first of the month you may be billed for a “web-only” ad that month.

HOW TO SUBMIT A CLASSIFIED AD

The best way is by email to: ads@fwrj.com. Email gets your ad on our web site faster and prevents our introducing typographical errors. You can paste it into the body of the email message or attach as a document. If you send it as an attachment, please use Microsoft Word. Second choice is by fax to 352-241-6007. Regular mail is not recommended because of our tight deadlines.

PROOFS

For an email submittal, unless you give prior approval in your initial submittal, we will email back to you the exact cost of the ad. Then, upon receipt of your email approving the cost, we will post the ad on our Web site, schedule it for the next publication, and prepare an invoice. For a fax submittal, we will fax back both the cost and a proof copy. Upon receipt of your approval of the cost and the proof, we will post the ad on our Web site, schedule it for the next publication, and prepare an invoice.

INVOICES

When the ad is placed on our Web site, we will mail an invoice to you. Then, when the magazine is mailed at about the first of the following month, we will mail a copy of the invoice along with a tear sheet.

PURCHASE ORDERS

We do not require purchase orders. If you require us to put a purchase order number on the invoice, please provide it at the time you place the ad.

PREPAYMENT

Prepayment is required of parties that do not have a credit history with us or who have a poor credit history with us. For established customers and government agencies we will invoice after publication.

TYPES OF ADS WE ACCEPT

Classifications accepted include Positions Available, Positions Wanted, Items Wanted to Sell or Buy, and Notices, and most anything having to do with the water/wastewater/water resources industry. We cannot accept ads that are unrelated to the industry.

ERRORS AND OMISSIONS

In the event of an error that is clearly our responsibility and that causes detriment to the image of the advertiser or to the sales of the product or service being advertised, not including minor typographical errors, we will rerun the ad or credit the advertiser with a reasonable portion of the ad cost. We cannot assume responsibility, however, when ad copy or changes are given orally. We typeset classified ads exactly as submitted to us (except that ads submitted in all upper case are typeset in lower case) and correct only obvious errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

EXTRA CHARGES

There is no charge for such features as bold type, italics, or uppercase for key words, if requested (however, we cannot guarantee the honoring of such requests). There is no charge for typesetting. We will include your logo on the web site, if you can provide a usable electronic copy, for the cost of the equivalent number of lines.

CANCELLATIONS

We cannot cancel an invoice once an ad has been placed on our Web site. You may have us remove the ad from the Web site at any time, and, if you let us know by the tenth of the previous month, you may have us delete it from the next paper publication.

POSITIONS WANTED ADS

Persons seeking jobs in Florida’s water and wastewater are welcome to submit brief classified ads. They will be run one time at no charge and are subject to editing.
