Ad Pricing : What is free, what is paid? Top ▲

We Are Making Some Changes...

Please bear with us until we get everything updated. If you need help with placing an ad, please call 828-406-0773 from 6-9 pm and we will help you.

Please read carefully:

MOST ads for individuals run free of charge. (Please check below to see if your ad category requires payment.)

You may include a photo of your item if you prefer.

PAID ADS for Individuals and Businesses (see"Definition of A Business" below) must still be prepaid and the prices are a little different. Please check below to see if your ad category requires payment.

A hyperlink for a website or Facebook page is included in the price. You may add your logo or one photo for an additional one-time payment of $2 (per the number of weeks your ad runs). Prices are $7 per ad per week ($9 with photo), $14 for 2 weeks ($16 with photo), $21 for 3 weeks ($23 with photo) or $20 for 4 weeks ($22 with photo). Pay for 4 weeks and the 5th week is free.

You may submit your ads through our website or email them (with or without attached photo) to sales@SHNPlus.com

FYI, please do not send copyrighted photos.

DEFINITION OF A BUSINESS: “Business” for our purposes is defined as a person or persons, partnership, corporation or “home-based business” selling a product or animal or providing a service (including housing) on an ongoing basis, for the purpose of making a profit, as opposed to John Doe selling his car or Jane Doe selling a piece of furniture.
