Counting Words

Any hyphenated word is considered as multiple words, each section counting as one word. If using a post office box, P.O. is considered two words, box is considered one word and the following box number is one word. Cities and states consisting of two words or more are considered as multiples (i.e. Downers Grove would be considered two words). Internet or email addresses count as one word. Telephone numbers (with area code) are considered one word.

If the ISVMA finds a discrepancy in counting that significantly affects the amount owed, you will be contacted by a member of the staff to discuss any refund or excess charge due. If unsure, leave the rate/word count information blank and ISVMA staff will count for you and invoice you for the ad.
