View Full Version : Ads in the paper
02-13-2008, 02:18 PM
I was thinking of putting an ad in the paper for those who don't want their Amiga/Commodore 64 hardware anymore. We could actually do this as a group project. I'm sure there are people with this hardware in their basement that would be willing to get rid of it. If we did this as a group project, we could all benefit because there may be more calls with more equipment than we could use and if I was offered equipment from every call, I could actually post it here. I think you might get a better deal than the Ebay route.
What do you think?

Sure, sounds like a great idea. Do you have a standard text that you use for an ad?

I think you could keep it short so the ad is under $30 or $35 dollars.
Wanted: Commodore Amiga computers. Contact xxx-xxx-xxxx or yourname@domain . whatever
I think that would be under the limit. Also, metropolitan newspapers generate a lot more business than rural ones but you never know because people who could afford Amigas live in the suburbs.

I do that in Denmark :-)
Some replies, but most people who have an Amiga here, they keep it for their own use.

I have a few sneaky ad texts that I use to get hardware. Most of them have been pretty successful. I've only had to pay for 1-2 of the computers I've gotten my hands on but the one I paid for ended up having a 2320 and was in mint condition. $25 was a fair deal!
