Q: Do I need to be a member of entsust.com to post a listing?
A: Yes, you do, but membership is free, and you can use your existing social logins such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn to save time - just click here...
Q: My ad has nothing to do with sustainability - is that OK?
A: Sustainability is as much about the social and the economic as it is the environmental - so advertise anything (as long as it's legal!) from moving lights to van hire to the things you make at home...
Q: Do I have to enter something in all the fields when selling my item or service?
A: No - any fields you leave blank won't appear in the final entry
Q: How long will my ad appear for?
A: Your ad will appear for one month from the date of posting, or until you take it down, whichever is sooner
Q: Can I renew my ad?
A: Of course - visit the listings page after your ad has expired, and click the red notification button to renew
Q: Can't I just use eBay?
A: Of course you can - although entsust.com is permanently visited by industry professionals, who are more likely to be your target audience. If you have an eBay shop, you might like to use a Backstage Classified to advertise it and link straight to it - remember 25p from every listing goes to charity!
Q: Can I jazz up my ad?
A: There are basic bold/italic-type options available when you enter your listing. If you know html, you can add basic html code (no scripts - they won't work!) to your listing to embellish it - you can even link to images such as logos that you host yourself - there's no extra charge.
Q: My company wants to advertise - is that OK?
A: Anyone can advertise - all we ask is that you select the appropriate 'business' or 'personal' category so that browsers know what they're dealing with
Q: How do I choose the thumbnail image for the ad?
A: Click the little star in the image in the photo gallery that you want to be the thumbnail - you can use this for a company logo.
Q: Why can't I advertise free stuff?
A: The good people at www.set-exchange.co.uk have been running a scenery/props/theatre stuff swapping website for years now, so there's no point reinventing the wheel. However, some people will want to realise the value in some items, or may have a service to offer, and that's why :backstage classifieds is here.
Q: What/who is The Theatrical Guild?
A: The Theatrical Guild is a charity that provides support to those who work backstage in theatres. 25 pence from every listing goes to them to help them in their valuable work. Read more here...
