Also, you, the advertiser are given more freedom to create a category for listing ads depending on the nature of their particular product, service, etc. With display ads on the Bulletin Board, they can chose from a number of different sizes and colors, which is especially helpful if they have a particular logo or image they want to stand out.

Over the years since it was started, the Bulletin Board has continued to grow and develop, attracting a diverse group of advertisers. Among the different clients are franchise owner/operators, non-profit organizations, schools, communication services, along with individuals interested in selling or buying particular items.
