CRIME PATROL is a newspaper that aims to help law enforcement solve unsolved crimes....everything from murder to graffiti. The goal is to have local versions of this country started in cities across the country, but a lot will depend on where we get advertising. Any city where we get sufficient advertising, we will launch the newspaper there. That means it depends largely on how this ad is responded to.
We need some ody who can sell 20 business-card size ads for the first issue. Ads will cost $50-$75 (depending on which page it's on). We'll pay you $500 to sell 20 ads. This is all or nothing. This means we do not pay for 5 or 6 ads....only if you sell 20. Payment is paid out after you have collected from advertisers. Here is how you will operate: We will email you a Media Kit to make available to potential advertisers. This will consist of sample pages of the newspaper (reduced to fit on printer paper), ad rates, and a letter describing our mission. You will approach businesses and ask if they will help us fight crime in the city by sponsoring one of the investigations in the issue. In return we'll make them a nice ad for the newspaper on the page where they investigation that they're sponsoring appears. You will appeal to their sense of patriotism. If you do well we will allow you to be our regular weekly ad-manager in that city, and perhaps consider you for co-ownership of the business. Check out our website at www.crimepatrol.net. I have materials to provide bidders to show more what we're about. I've uploaded a sample page for your consideration.
