    Default Newspaper Lien Sale Ads

    Quite a few states seem to be moving towards the removal of the requirement of advertising in the newspaper. One state is going to require advertising on a website that is listed in the contract.

    I have a few friends that work at our local paper and I asked if someone at the paper could write an article that I could share that might explain the importance of using the newspaper for legal advertisment and that they are not an outdate mode of communication of legal information. After a week, I received an answer back that none of the departments could answer but the advertising section would try.

    I guess if the newspaper can not see any value in it's self, no one else should. I would love to get rid of the $200-300 bill prior to each sale. I guess we would remove the advertising fee from the fee list too. I do like the affidavit we get with the proof of lien sale ad.


    As for advertising online, I would really hate to be restricted to advertising on a website that we put on the contract. What if the site folds, or they start charging outrageous amounts? (storagetreasures). It looks like auctionzip has been the most stable.

    Regarding the online ads, I wonder how you're supposed to document that your advertisement was actually posted and viewable throughout whatever the required timeframe is. I also wonder if you could say, register a domain of your own (like we typically do for our facility websites) and list that on your contract then display an ad posted on one of the major sites as an embedded element or something like that? Maybe the thing to do would be post your advertisement on your own website in order to comply with the law, then advertise through major, popular sites in addition, in order to get real exposure. If facilities start posting their own websites with their own ads on them, somebody could probably make money starting a central website just indexing (or whatever you call it) all these single-facility ads to help buyers find them.

    Maybe you could just advertise on Craigslist. Craigslist does send back an email to you confirming your ad contents and the dates it will run for. Seems like that is a highly visible website that won't be disappearing anytime soon.
