Frequently Asked Questions
- What can I use the Findnewspapers.com Listings System for?
Findnewspapers.com allows you to create an online Listings System that can be integrated into your existing website or used alone. The items in the listing can contain physical items (e.g. merchandise or products) or non-physical items (e.g. newsletter articles) and are organized by categories specified by you. This is similar to a 'blog' but organized by category rather than dates. We allow you to create, build, manage and administer your own online Listings site. Best of all, it's free to use this Listings System. You don't even need an existing website or web hosting service.
- Who should use the Findnewspapers.com Listings Software?
There are many instances where a quick and simple on-line Listings System can be useful. For instance, if you run the town newspaper you could have a Listings System where members of your staff can write topical articles. Findnewspapers.com's Listings System allows you to do this and more.
- How does it work?
Basically there are four steps:
A. You register. You register for our service.
B. You enter the initial setting choices. Using our simple interface, you tell us what categories you are accepting listings for and what color scheme you want. For instance, if you run the town newspaper, one category might be 'Politics'; and another might be 'Local Events'. We create the Listings System for you based on your information requirements and we tell you the Listings Page URL.
C. You tell your visitors. Tell your visitors about your on-line Listings System. In the case of the town newspaper, you would tell residents to go to the on-line Listings Page URL to view the existing news article listings. If you have a web-site you can have a link from it to the Listings Page URL. Another good way to make your users aware of the on-line Listings System is to include the Listings Page URL in all newsprint posters and other advertisements.
D. Users submit a listing for inclusion in the Listings System. When your staff want to submit a listing for possible inclusion in the system they complete the on-line Listings information pages, the information they input is stored for you and automatically approved for listing or you can optionally have it held pending your approval. Approved listings can automatically be viewed by End Users visting the Listings Page URL.
