Smile Politely has decided to seek a freelance advertising rep to help put the small businesses that make our town tick on the pages of our Web site. We are looking for a self-starter; someone willing to fly solo, and who knows (or wants to learn) the Champaign-Urbana ropes. We are looking for someone with a little advertising experience or someone who is currently studying advertising at University of Illinois. We expect our new rep to work a fair share of hours per week. We are not looking for someone who wants to sell businesses more than they need. We maintain a fierce independence, and the right candidate will fit into that mold with ease. Smile Politely compensates on a commission basis. If you're interested, email us at info [at] smilepolitely [dot] com, and we'll go from there.
The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
