as well as the Premier Ad shortcuts on the classifieds home page.

$450/60 days (= $225/month)
$600/90 days (= $200/month)

Are you tired of having your classified ad drop down out of sight before you've even had the chance to log out? Do you sit around and wait until it's your bump time? If yes, consider the AutoBump service.
Currently, everytime you edit a classifieds ad, it will bump to the top of the "new" listings. This is subject to a once per 2 hour 15 minute limit. While you can edit your ad ad many times and ad often as you want, it will not bump more than once every two hours and 15 minutes.
The autobump service, simulates an edit with no changes to bump your ad. You can still edit the ad on your own anytime you want as usual.
PLAN A. This is a once a day bump, at a time you specify, up to 7 days a week. Examples:
Everyday at 10:00 AM, OR Mon thru Fri only at 1:00 PM
PRICE: $100/1 month or $150/3 months
SPECIFY: one time of day and up to seven days of the week
PLAN B. This is an hourly autobump, up to 24 hours a day, of one ad. You can specify a shorter window if you want.
Autobump plan B keeps your ad near the top of the ad listings. This is critical because there are many targeted search shortcuts on the classifieds home page which only show the most recently updated ads.
Your ad is bumped in every shortcut that applies to your ad. This means that prospective clients will have the opportunity to see your ad when searching for people just like you.
If people cannot see your ad, they cannot call you.
NOTE: Actual bump occurs randomly between 0-9 minutes after scheduled times.
PRICE: $200/1 month or $300/3 months or $500/6 months
SPECIFY: If you do not want 24x7, let us know what hours you desire.
COLOR HIGHLIGHTED ADS
Why settle for a plain old vanilla?
Add a splash of color to the background of your ad listing to draw attention and increase your clickability.
Available Hues: Yellow, blue, green, red, or dream up your own.
You can also see examples by browsing through the ad listings, you should stumble across the occasional ad with a colored background. And didn't that catch your eye?!
Combine with the AUTOBUMP AD service above for maximum effectiveness.
SPECIFY: desired color
