Ad Submittal Instructions
All Ad submittals are handled using the forms and procedures at the Submit an Ad page.
Fill out the form completely - the only fields you can omit are the Telephone and Web Link URL. If it's a wanted Ad, you can also leave out the Price. The Description field can be formatted with bold, italic, bold/italic, lists, inline links, inline linked images, and tables using the markup described in the "Description" Formatting sidebar.
After filling out the form, click the Preview Ad button at the bottom of the form.
If the form input does not pass Validation, then it will re-appear with the issues shown in red. Correct the issues, then click the Preview Ad button at the bottom of the form to try again.
A new page will come up with a Preview of your Ad at the top and a Revision Form at the bottom. Read the preview and make sure it appears as you desire. Double check the Category and the E-mail address. Also review the Description formatting, particularly if it uses the formatting markup.
If the preview is ok, then fill out the reCaptcha and click the Post Ad for Listings button below the Preview. The Ad will be forwarded to IBMWR Marketplace Administrators for checking and posting.
If the preview is not ok, then scroll down to the Revision Form, revise the form fields, and click the Preview Ad button at the bottom of the revision form. A new page, with a new Preview and Revision Form will come up.
Your Ad will not appear immediately in the Ad pages, it will first be reviewed by the IBMWR Marketplace Administrators. Submitting it again will not accelerate the process.
You will receive courtesy e-mail from the Marketplace. It contains an AdID number that is required for deleting the Ad. Do not lose this number.
To change an Ad after submitting it, you must delete it and submit a new one with the changes in place.
