Here are a few things to consider when creating your ad:
Choosing the right category is very important for users to find your ad. If you don’t know the category your ad should be placed in, try the following:
Ad Details: Make sure your ad is descriptive and clearly worded, so readers know exactly what it is you’re advertising. If you’re selling an item, include details such as the item’s condition, make and model, as well as any warranties, accessories, and extras that may be included.
Pricing: Make sure your asking price is in line with other comparable items. Research prices for similar items in the marketplace: price is often the thing that makes or breaks a deal.
Contact Info: Make sure to include your contact information (phone, email), so potential buyers know how to reach you. Always be sure to double-check the accuracy of this info before posting your ad.
Photos: Adding photos to your ad greatly enhances its effectiveness. You can upload up to 10 photos for free. (Note: Always make sure to always use high-quality photos in your ads. For more information on photo quality, see “The photo in my ad does not look right.”)see “The photo in my ad does not look right.”)
If you need to renew your ad to get results, use the renewal process as an opportunity to refresh your ad. Change your header, ad details, photos, and pricing (if applicable). This may help get the attention of readers who may have overlooked your ad before.
You will need to create an account before you can place an ad on canadaeast.com. You can start creating your first ad without creating an account, but you will prompted to create one before the ad is finalized.
Once your ad has been submitted, you will receive an email confirming the details of your order. The ad will begin publishing on the selected start date. When this happens, you will receive another email letting you know your ad has been placed. If you have chosen the current date as the start date, your ad will be visible on CanadaEast within a couple of minutes. You can manage all submitted ads through your account page by signing into your account at canadaeast.adperfect.com.
If you don’t receive an email from Canadaeast within 30 minutes of submitting your ad, please call 1-800-561-7166 or email email@example.com.
Please note: Ads placed through our call center (1-800-561-7166) may take up to one hour before appearing online.
You can make changes to your ad by accessing your account and clicking the “Edit” button next to your ad.
If the changes increase the price of your ad, you will be charged accordingly. Please note, however, that you will not be entitled to a refund if you make changes that decrease the price of your ad. For more information on our refund policy, see “What is your refund/credit process/policy?”.
Access your account, then click the “Edit” button next to your ad. Scroll to the photos section. You can delete a photo by clicking on the trash can icon, edit a photo by clicking on the wrench or add a new photo by clicking the “Select Photos” button. If you are having issues with photo quality, see “The photo in my ad does not look right.”
Access your account and click the “Cancel” button next to your ad. Please be advised ads are non-refundable after they have been published. For more information on our refund policy, see “What is your refund/credit process/policy?”
To renew an ad that has expired, sign in to your account and click the “renew” button next to the ad.

Banner Advertising: “Big Box” and “Leaderboard” advertising space is available on the CanadaEast home page and under all category listings.
Automated Feeds Service: We offer Feed Services, which update CanadaEast listings automatically through a daily check of specified content available on your website.
Print Advertising Packages: We also strive to empower advertisers by giving them the opportunity to advertise both online and in print. No one can deny the power of online media, but the fact of the matter is that not all buyers and sellers in New Brunswick are online. Online-only advertising misses key demographics in New Brunswick, so we also give advertisers the ability to advertise in Brunswick News publications throughout the province and reach up to 115,000 households they may not reach otherwise. Special print rates are available for businesses in select Employment, Automotive, Real Estate and Services classifications. The following table outlines the distribution numbers for all print publications available to you through CanadaEast.
