Classified ads are FREE! Write long ads (up to 1,000 characters) and include 4 full-color photos to rent your apartment, sell your stuff, advertise your business, or make announcements. Current ads run in the Classifieds Page, and are featured on the front page--so be sure to include a photo or logo to make you stand out. Why are classifieds free? Because a thriving marketplace is important to our community. It costs the Chronicle nothing, benefits our readers, and--let's be honest--brings in more people who'll also read the articles. Win-win-win. Don't see a category that fits what you want to advertise? Let us know and we'll look at adding a new category.
