These guidelines are intended to assist department staff who are responsible for submitting legal and/or display ads to Florida Today. For questions regarding advertisements in Florida Today, please contact the City Clerk’s Office.
Submit all LEGAL and DISPLAY advertisements to: BRElegals@gannett.com
- CC: Sally Goltzman firstname.lastname@example.org
E-mails transmitting the advertisements to Florida Today must include:
- The type of ad (legal or display);
- Date of publication;
- Account number;
- The following language: "I do not authorize print to SEO" and "please reply all to this e-mail."
The City of Melbourne maintains two accounts with Florida Today: one for legal ads (126073) and one for display ads (124029). You must place the account number in the subject line to assist Florida Today in billing the correct account. The following subject line examples must be used:
- SUBJECT: Legal Ad for January 7 (126073)
- SUBJECT: Display Ad for January 14 (124029)
Advertisements should be placed in a THURSDAY edition of Florida Today when possible.
Advertisement rates in Florida Today are discounted on Thursdays. Placing ads in the Thursday edition will save the city thousands of dollars a year in advertisement costs.
Instruct Florida Today to send the invoice for the advertisement to the attention of the Office of City Clerk.
In the transmittal e-mails to Florida Today, direct Florida Today staff to send the invoice for the advertisement to the attention of the Office of City Clerk. The City Clerk’s Office will reconcile bills from Florida Today to ensure accurate charges are applied.
