Advertising Online in and around Zug

The online advertising tool includes the whole range of services of the „Amtsblatt des Kantons Zug“.

You can easily place adverts, stop current adverts or reactivate older ones at the online counter.

Advertisers are able to see a preview of the printed version of their advert since there are a are comfortable text editor and a preview in real time.

Navigation and user-friendlyness are key. Therefore the advertising works in three simple steps:

  • Enter the text of the advert with WYSIWYG editor and hyphenation

  • Confirm the advert and calculate the price

  • Pay the advert with credit or Postfinance card

After this transaction, the user receives a confirmation email with a preview of his advert and the bill.
