“A is for Ads” – 5 Tips to Raise More Money with Ads


Ads are a great way to put a little more moola in your yearbook budget so you can afford that double die-cut cover with a vellum endsheet and three foil embosses.
  • Allow parents to purchase “tribute” ads for their 8th graders or seniors
  • Sell “buddy messages” to students. For $5, they can get 2 lines of text. Sell messages to teachers as well.
  • Send teams of students to local stores to sell business card ads for $35 each (fit 10 on a page, and you have $350!)
  • Make this one of your early deadlines, since it’s much easier to collect the materials.
  • – OR – Have students sell over the summer, then when you return, you will already have plenty of material for your first deadline (giving you more time to cover the important stuff, like Homecoming)
