A great way to buy and sell products is through free classifieds. Users should register themselves to use these classified websites effectively. Newspaper advertising is diminishing because they are expensive and allow only a certain number of words. Online classifieds can be read at any time and can contain a good ad description unlike print ads. Only the description of the ad can get you good leads to your business. Though large online classified companies charge for ads, there are millions of sites mushrooming everyday that specialize in free advertising. People can sell anything they want by simply posting attractive ads in these websites. Duration of the visibility of the ad varies for different websites.
The only disadvantage of free classified advertising is your ads are pushed down the list when others post ads in the same category. New features are now added for your ad to be visible on top of the other ads. This feature is called top or premium ads. Top ad advertising is an excellent way to get the users attention as it is mostly highlighted with different colors or a star symbol. Employers are also using classified advertising to post their job requirements. Affiliate links are also allowed in some websites.
There is no chance of spamming these websites as there is always a team of experts reviewing your ads and they can delete or modify inappropriate category. Placing the ad in the wrong category also leads to removal of ad in most of the free classified websites. If the user is found to be spamming frequently, the user is banned immediately by most of the sites. There are contact forms available on almost all the classified websites through which a potential buyer can contact the seller.
