In this tech savvy world, all of us are aware of the term “online classified ads”. This is one of the most common terms used in the advertising world. There are paid and free classified ads that are used to promote/ sell/ buy products and services. There are different sections where you can post your classified ad such as clothing, automobiles, appliances, jobs, homes, accessories and so on. You have to make sure that you post your ad under the right section to give it maximum exposure.

You can find plenty of websites where you can post free classified ads without any investment. All you need to do is register with the website and post your ad to reach potential users. Unlike traditional advertising methods, you can check the status of your ads whenever you want and keep yourself up-to-date. Since online classified ads doesn’t involve any investment, you don’t have to be worried about the time frame in which these have to be present because you can leave the ad online for as long as you want. However, you should keep a track of the responses because if you are not getting any response then you might want to make changes and post it again.

Another important benefit of free classified ads is that there is no limit on posting the number of ads, therefore you can post as many advertisements as you want. However while posting ads; you should keep few things in mind such as an attractive headline that can attract visitors instantly, informative description of the product/ service and your contact information where the potential customer will get in touch with you. Without these three things, your ad is incomplete and will reduce the chances of conversion. Other than this, here are some tips to create safe online classified ads

  • Do not put any information that isn’t necessary. You need to stick to the facts because your ad might get used for other purposes than you intended. 
     
  • If you post a photo, make sure it doesn’t include any numbers, family member, license plate number etc.
     
  • If the website doesn’t have heir own email service, then you should create a disposable email account that doesn’t show any of your personal information such as place, name, and age and so on.

Sell Your Products Through Free Online Classified Ads

Tuesday, September 17, 2013


The benefits of free online classified ads are overlooked by a lot of internet marketers because many people don’t realize the value they can get from these ads. In order to master the art of posting classified ads, you need to analyze them properly and understand various factors that will help you get better results. Last winter I sold off my bike through classified ads and I realized there is a lot to learn before you post your ad. There are a lot of things I came across and I will share some of the most important ones here: 

 

  • The first and the most important thing is to work on the headline to get effective results. When I was writing an ad for my bike, I did some research online and realized there were hundreds of ads that were there already. So you need something really unique to grab the attention. 
     
  • Secondly, you should know the right category where you need to post your ad. I saw a lot of bloopers online where people had posted ads under the wrong sections. It is really important to post them under the right sections if you want to reach the right audience. 
     
  • The success of your ad depends upon how your ad is being presented. Therefore, formatting of your advertisement is very important. You should make sure that your free online classified ads are formatted correctly and should stick to the guidelines of the classified website. A well presented ad will increase your chances of a sale.

You should pay attention to all the small details when you write an ad. Except the above mentioned points, it is always good to add an image of your product/service and use crisp and strong words. Also, ensure that you mention your contact details where interested people can contact you and the details/price of your services. So next time when you have to sell something, consider using online classified ads as they reach more people than any other mode and they are easy to use.

Sell Furniture Through Local Classified Ads

Thursday, September 12, 2013


Until recently, a lot of people only knew about local classified ads in newspapers or magazines, but the internet has definitely changed everyone’s perception of advertising. Unlike newspapers, where there was a lot of investment required to post ads, now you can post free ads online. You can post advertisements about anything and everything and since they are so popular, I decided to try them as well when we moved someplace else last summer. 

Last summer, my parents and I moved to Illinois from California and since we were moving into a fully furnished house – there was a lot of furniture that we wanted to sell. We decided to post free ads for furniture we wanted to sell and even if it was our first time- it went pretty well for us and we got a good deal for our stuff. I read a few tips before posting local classified ads that I am going to share here:
  1. Write a good title: 

    Title should entice readers to buy your product or service. In our case, writing – ‘furniture for sale’ would have been really boring. So we decided to add the kind of furniture we wanted to sell. You have to make it interesting and apt. 
     
  2. Description: 

     It should be to the point and make sure you mention everything a reader might want to know, such as –details for your product/service, price and your contact details. 
     
  3. Post a photo: 

    A picture can make a huge impact in your ad. Post an attractive picture whenever you can, it increases the chances of a sale. 
     
  4. Hidden costs: 
    For instance, we were selling a sofa set for $20,000. Now a buyer won’t like it if he has to pay some extra money just because he is not a US citizen. So make sure you mention breakdown of the cost whenever possible.
These were a few tips that I think are really important to write local classified ads and of course, you have to be concise. Do not try to make stories when you post free ads. Keep them short, crisp and interesting. It should be attractive and encourage readers to go through all of it.

Tips to Post Free Online Classified Ads

  • While writing information about your product or service for a classified ad, make sure it is to the point. Clear, crisp and short copy – that’s how it is supposed to be! Don’t overkill the description. 
     
  • The last and the most important part are to place it under the right category. I wonder how people can go wrong with this! All your efforts will be wasted if you don’t put it in the right section.

So that’s pretty much about it I guess! There are a lot of factors that one should take care of, but these are the most important parts of free online classified ads.
