How much do I charge for ads? Your selling price is dependent on how many papers you are mailing or the number of mailboxes in your particular zip code. If you have 10,000 in your zip code than your selling price is $100 for the 1/8 page ad shown in the sample paper promoting 1 cent per home.

How much do I make? If you sell your ads according to my sample papers pricing (1 cent per home for the 1/8 page ad), which is how and why my students succeed effortlessly it would work out as follows. If your mailing (zip code) was 10,000 and you sold a 1/2 page ad for $379, your cost for this ad would be $125 since 10,000 12 page all color papers printed and mailed cost under $3,000 ($250 per page). Therefore your cost for a half page would be $125. If you sold the 12 pages of advertising (you charge more for the front & the back), you would take in about $10,000 depending on the ad sizes you sold. Your cost to produce (print & mail) these 10,000 all color 12 page papers would be under $3,000 leaving you with a profit of $7,000 per month. If your paper is 24 pages your profit would be $14,000 per month. The cost of mailing each paper is the same 18 cents per paper until your paper reaches 42 pages as the bulk pricing is based on weight not pages.
How much experience do I need to make money publishing a paper?
Are you a motivated self-starter? Publishers need to be comfortable dealing with & selling to small & medium sized businesses. The sample paper makes the selling easy, but can you do the leg work while I advise & lead you step by step via the same business model that I succeeded with as well as 100’s of my students over the years? If you are willing to do the work, you can succeed quickly & effortlessly.
I don’t know anything about designing ads or printing newspapers.
Don’t worry—if you can do the leg work, you can make money from home with my Fun News business model. I teach you to design the ads and write the advertorials in just hours. As you collect ads from your customers you send them to me for enhancement whereas when you go back to the customer, they love it. During this process you will learn to be a skilled graphic artist. I help you with every detail as you go forward toward production such as laying the paper out for the printer & mailing it via the bulk mailing system (no permits required).
Can I count on you for the assistance, training & support I will need?
When you become my student, you become part of my mission. My paper was originally started as a ministry, The Church Paper. When I am able to assist a deserving entrepreneur succeed in their own home based business whereas they perhaps would not have been able to succeed any other way, I consider it a blessing. I want my students to succeed. I want to get your first paper in my mailbox to add to my collection. When you become my student I provide you 1 on 1, 24/7 support dedicated to making sure you succeed. The phone rings in my bedroom & none of my students wake me up complaining. I am accountable to you and my mission. I am not like any other opportunity you will encounter as I enjoy teaching my students this business. I am now 60 and retired 12 years ago. There is a link to my successful business history on the homepage & I don’t need your money as I will never outlive my own. I train students in this great business because I enjoy helping entrepreneurs achieve their dream of business ownership.
How long does it take to publish my first paper? Once you sign on as my student, it happens quickly. Your sample papers & manual go into priority mail the same day and the next day we are on the Skype share screen together designing ads. After our first session & once you have the samples in hand you are ready to start soliciting the local businesses. Many students have their first paper in the mail within 30 days of signing on.
