Classified Ads - marketing tips

One of the great benefits of using Free classifieds is that you are getting targeted traffic because when you post on classified sites people that view your ads are people that are searching for something that is similar to what you are offering.

Even though using free classifieds are easy to use, there are some tips and tricks that you can do to maximize your earning potential. Here are some things that you should make sure that you should do to make your ads get results.

1. Only post ads on high traffic sites. This is important because there are tons of free classified sites out there, however, many are pure garbage. You want to make sure that your ads are on sites that people visit on a regular basis. I would recommend doing a google search for "free classified sites" and do a little research from there.
2. Make sure your ad titles are catchy. Think outside the box a little. Really ask yourself "would I click on this ad". If you can honestly say yes to this question, you probably have a good title.

3. Keep your ad short, sweet and mysterious. What I mean is, do not try to sell in your ad. You want to make the viewer of the ad to want to go to your website or affiliate page. So when you are writing your ad, write it like a really good teaser.

4. Post as often as you can as many places as you can. I recommend signing up with at least 5 to 10 free classified sites. Once signed up with them, post as many as you can on each site. You will see some nice results by doing this.
To save you a little time, here are few of the most visited classified sites:

Does anyone else use classifieds as a marketing method? I know seven years ago I used a few but since I just haven't seen them as a viable method.. Am I missing out by ignoring them? I guess the biggest thing that keeps me from them is not being able to reach a wide audience since most of them have rules against posting in more than one city, etc.

Free classified sites are a total waste of time. Craigslist was good about 3-4 years ago but now all these sites are fully of oppty sellers and not buyers. To make real money in this industry you must have capital to advertise or have capital to utilize tools to help you market. I pay a call center to call leads for me. They then three way me the aces who have been qualified on my parameters about my business. Many others pay people to market for them. Free classified sites are a time drain. The BEST way to make money with classified sites is to reverse market them because quite frankly those that advertise on free sites are usually not doing well in their business but they are opportunity buyers who are likely to be open to anything that can help them get some bang for their buck.

Ok ibuzzmentor, it is your point, about waste of time.
And what is not "waste of time" in internet marketing? What is your opinion? :)

Hi,
there are many free clasified sites which can give good response but you cannot fully rely on them. along with this you have other alternative types of marketing.

I would try everything I could particularly if it is free to do it. Hey you might just get lucky. In some businesses it only take one or two heavy hitters to get your game going good so to speak. So I wouldn't discount anything. You owe it to your business or what ever to persue every avenue you can and besides it is a good learning experience as well. You learn to fine tune ads and stuff like that so it isn't a complete waste of time as some people think here. :lol:

The best classified site is probably Craigslist.org.

To market your product:

1. Create an account
2. Create a compelling advertisement, something that will make people want to click through to your site.
3. Choose your city (or the nearest one).
4. Post your ad.

Classified advertising can be a very powerful marketing tool if you understand how to use it. You can use classified ads to sell any packages short of the sun. You can also use classified ads to send visitors to your websites.

I think a lot of this depends on whether you want traffic from the classified ad site, or just a backlink. Since, I mainly do SEO, I'm looking for a backlink, and I would be interested in the pagerank of the site, etc. Any traffic I got directly from the ad would be gravy.
