Have you ever wondered what will you do if you lose any important document which needs to be preserved? Most of the people will freak out or start panicking in the first place which is a quite common psychological behaviour among humans. So this is where newspaper advertising comes in. I am sure you all have noticed several lost and found ads in newspapers! Well, those ads are published by those individuals who has lost or misplaced precious documents and now they are advertising with the hope to get the lost item back.
Lost and found ads in newspapers are a kind of public notice ads which are given in the newspaper to draw the attention of the general public that some possession of someone has been misplaced. This has been practised since the invention of newspaper ads and is still continuing as newspapers are the most trusted advertising platform.
The lost and found ads are placed in newspapers precisely with two objectives firstly the item will be restored if found and secondly to issue the duplicate copy of the lost item. The lost and found ads are published for loss of passport, certificates, mark sheets and other documents which should be retained legally for future reference.
These ads are more of a legal formality so it’s important that your ad contains all details accurately along with your contact information. But before that one needs to have a First Information Report (FIR) copy from the police station or obtain a copy of General Diary or an affidavit through a notary public. This is because you have to provide a photocopy of any of these documents to the publication house for getting your ad published in the newspaper.
For placing lost and found ads in the newspaper you should have a fair idea about your target audience. For example, imagine you have lost your mark sheet somewhere in Mumbai on your way back home hence your document must be misplaced in that place only so in that case you have to advertise in the local or regional newspapers. But ensure you have put in enough elements to identify what is lost.
