If you had an account in the past, it may still be active, although the password may no longer work. You can go to the page: Forgot Password Recovery and attempt to recover your password.
Your email address that you register with is your UserID. This needs to be a valid address and will be our primary method of identifying and contacting you. If you forgot it, and have purchased an ad in the past, Customer Service may have the ability to find it for you. The Customer Service number is (800)793-6543. If it cannot be retrieved, you can create a new account with any valid email address that has not been used in another account.
The password you create needs to be a secret code that only you keep for security purposes. It should not be shared with others. Should you forget your password, you can retrieve it online at Forgot Password Recovery or you can call Customer Service to reset it.
Once you are logged in, the first page of the ad placement process has a link to go to your account manager. The direct page is: https://getlisted.thegreensheet.com/Account/Register. This only works once you are logged in and authenticated into the website. This page shows past and saved ads and provides you the opportunity to buy again or re-run past ads or ads you have saved as a model ad.
There are 9 main categories and multiple sub-categories in each to help group your ad by topic/service and make it easier for buyers to find. The 9 main categories are: Merchandise, Health and Living, Announcements, Real Estate, Services, Employment, education, Food and Fun, and Transportation. If you have trouble picking an appropriate category, you can call or email Customer Service for assistance. They can be reached via telephone at: (800)793-6543 or send us an email, CustomerService@TheGreensheet.com.
Make your title short but descriptive. Try to avoid words like “must see” and “wow”, use keywords in your ad to make it easy for readers to search for and find. Use attention getters and bold text or centered text, this makes your ad stand out. If you provide photos/images with your ad, it improves your chances by up to 10X over ads with no photos.
During ad placement, if you have a print ad, you will have the opportunity to upload an image for print. This will be automatically converted to black and white for print. If you desire a print ad with color graphics, contact us at (713)371-3500 and ask for the Display Sales department.
For online ads with pictures, you will automatically be sent an email to your registered email address (your UserID), after purchase, with a direct link to upload pictures from your computer. If you lost that email, another can be sent by calling Customer Service at: (800)793-6543.
All ads go through a proofing process to help us provide our readers with a safer place on the web and the leading place to bring buyers and sellers together. Ads placed during normal business hours are typically proofed and online within an hour or two. Ads placed after business hours will be proofed the next business day. If an ad is placed that has issues, a proofer will contact you to resolve them and get your ad online quickly. Print only ads also go through the proofing process. These will be printed on the next available publication date for your chosen edition(s) and will appear online on the publication date. See “Ad Deadlines” above for more information.
Most pages (except the order entry pages) have search capability. The reader can put in the terms to search for, ie, blue Dodge truck, narrow the search by category, and further limit the search by city.
Online classified ads are offered free to 501(c)(3) nonprofits, with certain conditions. Please contact Customer Service at (800)793-6543 for more information or to place a non-profit ad online.
