Hey! Where's My Ad??? - Out of consideration for our other readers and paid sponsors, we do not reprint free ads or articles for the same individual, subject, item, event or business more frequently than once every 14 days. If we did not have this policy, each issue of the Baja Western Onion would quickly fill up with repeat information and become less readable and useful to our readers. It would also be unfair to our sponsors who pay for the privilege to be included in each issue. If you resubmit a free ad before our 14-day limit, it will most likely be deleted without notice.
We do recognize that frequent advertising in the Baja Western Onion is a most cost-effective way to sell an item or promote your business. We do offer paid sponsorship opportunities that allow you to advertise in each issue of the Baja Western Onion, and we would be happy to welcome you as a new sponsor with us. Non-profits are entitled to receive a 50% discount off our standard, commercial rates. Your paid ad will be sent out twice a week to over
3,9004,000 subscribers. If you would be interested in learning more, please visit our sponsorship page: bajawesternonion.com/advertising.asp.
