Get Personal with Online Advertising

Utilize the Thrifty Nickel’s personals online advertising section, find romance before it slips through your fingers.

While you were out running errands today, did you see someone special? Real special, I mean. Someone who makes your heart stop and palms sweat and inside you just know, this IS the real deal? But they walk past you and you realize you can’t just blurt out “I love you” and expect anything to come of it. Take the step you should have taken, write a personal ad to right your wronged footing.

We only get one chance to make a first impression, or so some say. I say that’s not fair. Momentary lapse in bravery should never stand between potential lovers. For centuries, personal ads have given people chances to rewrite that lackluster sentence-moment in their lives.

Sara Bader, in her amazing book Strange Red Cow, chronicles a good handful of phenomenal personal ads from as far back as the Civil War.

While many are signed in the hopes of love, some of these archaic personals serve as thank you’s. For example:

“THE LADY WHO LOST HER KING CHARLES’S SPANIEL near Union square, in Broadway, yesterday morning, tenders her most cordial thanks to the gentleman who so kindly volunteered to release him from the thief, and sympathies with the young man who was knocked down in the melee. — March 28, 1855 New York Herald.” (Bader 108)

Or as thanks in the form of a ringing endorsement:

“I HEREBY RETURN MY THANKS TO DR. H. A. DANIELS, of 221 Sixth avenue, near Fourteenth street, for skillfully removing without pain a large foreign substance from my ear, which had troubled me for a considerable time. I can fully testify to the doctor’s ability as a surgeon. GEO. BOWERYEM. — December 21, 1862, New York Sunday Mercury.” (Bader 109)

Or even as good riddance:

“X. Z. — IF YOU MUST HAVE A REASON why I refuse you, understand, then, that I canot marry a man who wears soiled linen, has foul teeth and breath, and uses tabasco and whisky. Faugh! GENERRA — November 16 1862, New York Sunday Mercury.” (Bader 109)

Man, Generra, a real straight shooter.

Do you have someone you’ve been meaning to get a message to, but you’re not sure where or how to contact them? Are you a scorned ex-lover who wishes to express your deep dissatisfaction with your detestable heartbreaker?

Oh, The Places You Will Go with Online Advertising!

Online AdvertisingDon’t overlook online advertising as a means for self promotion and sale vaulting! While it’s easy to take online advertising for granted, what with the technological inundation of this generation and the nation’s general lack of attention span, it remains one of the most effective methods of advertising in this unpredictably fluctuating economy.

At the onset of the computer renaissance, home computers didn’t really exist. Computers were used by mathematicians, scientists and businesses in very official capacities requiring at least one dedicated programer.

The computer industry shifted focus to personal computer use in the mid-70s, but the idea wasn’t widely marketed until the eighties. A new wave of desire for the most advanced home technology spread amongst those who could afford it. Unfortunately, the computer industry’s domestic saturation remained stagnant.

The novelty attached to owning a personal computer (oooh, ahhh, how fancy!) appears to be the only advantage to the primordial PC. Though advertisers billed these computers as able to store and sort all of your family recipes, hold and figure all of your finances, simplify your life in general! These “convenient” features of your brand new, very costly PC required at least one member of your family to adeptly learn computer programming, otherwise the PC existed as a glorified combination calculator paperweight.

Today, at the touch of a button, we can order a brand new computer off of our existing computer. Seriously. has 1-click ordering. You can buy an entirely new device from someone across the world using another device, without ever speaking or meeting this other person you can make transactions. It’s phenomenal!

It’s the wide-stretching (in both distance and diversity) audience the internet reaches that makes it the most effective and viable medium for today’s advertisers! That and the low overhead!

The Thrify Nickel provides a particularly unique service for its advertiser in the sense that it targets the widest radius of people within your tangible community providing you with more exposure in the areas that matter!

Are you an independent go-getter sick of letting the man get you down? You’ve decided to take lady luck out of the equation and get knee deep into the pits of self-employment! Advertise your wares, your services, throughout the Permian Basin and beyond with American Classifieds online!

It could not be easier to advertise online with the Thrifty Nickel. Just head to and click the tab on the top of the page that reads Place An Ad! $5.75 for the first ten words, .40 cents per each additional word.
