What about having an entry page that appears before your classified ads page. You could make it an optional requirement for people to opt in to your newsletter/update list etc. Be honest about it, tell them that you offer a free service and there are many more free items of information in your newsletter.

*Dont force them into it
*Give them clear, concise information
*Above all - don't put too many ads in your newsletter!

Hope it helps!
