Continental Features/Continental News Service offers multi-media advertising opportunities, assisting advertisers in placing radio-spot commercials, television advertising, and outdoor-advertising displays at no extra charge to the advertiser. (The radio or TV station involved or the billboard-maintenance company we use pays the sales commission!) Our commitment is to use of effective, dependable, generic advertising media.
CF/CNS' Advertising Division is truly Your Advertising StoreSM, with our Budget Outdoor Advertising DisplaysSM section assisting with arrangements for daily, weekly, monthly and annual rental of billboard space coast-to-coast, at rates that accommodate virtually every budget. You may lease advertising-display spaces as small and economical as 20 inches by 30 inches in an Information Center on the Interstate Highway System, too, and reach up to one million or more visitors annually. [And at this writing, there are two such advertising-display spaces available.] That's our focus. So, contact Budget OutdoorSM at CF/CNS today for all your outdoor-advertising purchases.
*Weekdays, air your 30-second radio spot for as little as an average cost of $25 each time, on the San Diego County affiliate of a national radio network.
Run a 30-second commercial locally on a network-affiliated station that broadcasts to southern Oregon and northern California, during the morning hours of national programming (Monday-Friday) and pay as little as $5-$15 each time; or air your 30-second commercial locally during a popular late-night variety show for no more than $80 each time.
Or you can buy cable television broadcasters’ and radio stations' unsold airtime, at discount rates, and have your commercial air the following week. You specify the purchase criteria, markets, and budget, when you upload your commercial by .mp3 or .wav file. Broadcasters nation-wide who meet your general specifications can bid for your company’s business! CF/CNS can help you get started.
But, then, CF/CNS continues to offer print-advertising opportunities through our periodic, general-interest newsmagazine, Continental Newstime, or the Country Neighbor Edition, and the nation-wide network in which we participate. Our print-advertising rates follow:

Note to advertisers and "subscribers"*: The advertising network in which Continental Newstime newsmagazine participates routinely delivers national circulation to in excess of 500,000 readers, and we offer tearsheets for ads placed in the cities/towns we reach across the U.S. Purchasing ad space for two months or longer and/or purchasing a newsmagazine "subscription"* for six months, one year, or longer are equally non-refundable purchases since the options of single-month ad placement and single-copy "purchase"* are already available first. Actually, CF/CNS sells advertising space exclusively, either for one month at a time or for multiple months, and there are two possibilities, each of course offering opportunity to read Continental Newstime newsmagazine. When you order for any length of time, you are automatically establishing an entitlement to, and placing an advertising order for, one sentence of primary advertising space consisting of a favorite quotation from the U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights or American Founders' Federalist Papers and, incidentally, opportunity to read Continental Newstime newsmagazine. Either your check or money order will be paying to advertise your own favorite quotation from the above-mentioned sources or the favorite quotation, in the absence of your indicating such a preference, of Continental News. Either way, it becomes part of our publication message and advertising content.
Also, CF/CNS otherwise reserves the right, in its sole discretion and determination of its genuine interests, to offer or refuse secondary advertising space to any prospective advertiser. (Our policy was specifically conceived to decline the patronage of those advertising tobacco, alcoholic beverages, medical and quasi-medical procedures/products, and drugs, prescription and otherwise.) We also reserve the right to change any rates applicable to advertisers, after giving 30-days' written notice. Revisions will apply to all advertisers on the effective date.
*Yes, we are also entertaining plans for a possible lease of "industrial space" and "commercial space" on the game board of CF/CNS' exciting and challenging consumer product, Advertising Empire (c. Continental Features/Continental News Service). It would be opportunity for businesses to advertise their products/services through an imaginative form of social media, and we have 87 scale-model billboard sign faces that are alternately available.
* MAGAZINE-VENDOR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES: Magazine subscription agents overseas and in the U.S. are eligible to make bulk purchases of 1,000 OR 5,000 OR 10,000(or more) copies of Continental Newstime newsmagazine at prices variously figured based on a reasonable cost-plus formula.
