Ringing in the New Year with Class, First-Class, that is

We appreciate what you do for our military and their families! Part of our appreciation is a free ad through our MilitaryAvenue Partner Program. To ring in the new year, and the success ahead for all of us, we would like to give you a free First Class Package (a $60 value). What does this mean?
  • Preferred ranking above all free listings
  • 50 character slogan on listing
  • Direct link to your website from your listing
  • Image or logo on listing

It is the difference between this:

and this:

A First-Class can make your ad visually appealing and draw in more customers (and can increase visits to your own web page with a direct link!) What a great deal!

But what if you already invested $60 in to a First-Class package or higher, like many MilitaryAvenue Partners? Those of you with an upgraded packages can use the $60 to reduce the cost at an even higher level; a General's Package or Featured Partner, perhaps!

Decide which upgrade package you would like: http://www.militaryavenue.com/ListWithUs. After you have done that, here is what you need to do:

Build your new ad and at checkout use the Coupon Code military60. (Don't forget to click Apply after entering military60 to make your 1st class package /free/ or to lower the cost of another package.)  We will review your new-ad and if you meet our guidelines we will approve and place it on the site so that the military-community can get to know you and your company!

We wish you all the success that a new year brings! From your MilitaryAvenue Team, Happy New Year!
