If you are a regular buyer of your local newspapers, you would have seen that the size allotted to the classified ads of the paper you buy, is year by yeaer getting smaller. Well, not just for your local newspaper, it is for virtually all newspapers out there. And whats the reason for this you may be asking, well, the simple answer is, classified adverts on newspapers are no longer as effective as they used to be years back. Less and less number of people now make use of the classified ads section of newspapers to sell their products hence the owners of these papers are making the size smaller.
Whats the solution
The simple solution is free online classifieds. With free online classified ads, you will have more and more people seeing your ads. Thing is, people now know they can search the Internet and find what they need faster than they can via the papers of a newspaper. People are becoming more and more smarter and now make use of smart devices such as the Ipad, Blackberry, Iphones, laptops and the likes to find what they want thereby saving themselves more and time.
With newspaper classified ads, people find it difficult to respond due to lack of adequate information but this is not so with free online classified ads. With newspaper classified ads, there is usually a phone number available in the print ad. Most times, the person making the call will have to leave a number so their call can be returned and the person making the call may end up getting so many unwanted calls both during the day and in the night. And in a situation where an email address is included in the print, anyone interested in the advert will still need to write out the email address into a copy in the process which mistakes can be made.
With free classified ads, an email address can easily be sent directly from the free online classified ads site and in the event that you need to place a call through to the advertiser, there may still be a waiting period just as with newspaper classified ads but the ease with free online classified ads can’t be compared to the print ads.
