This article discusses the power of classified ad websites in marketing your business on the world wide web.


Making use of the internet to market business services is no longer a new thing in the marketing industry. In fact, there are a lot of strategies and tools you can use online in order to do this. One of the many effective ways by which you can market your business or your brand online is by making use of Classified Ad Websites.


What is a classified ad website?

This is a kind of website that is focused on offering advertising services to its clients. The advertisements are grouped into different categories making it easier for advertisers to know where they should be advertising and for viewers to know where to look. Most of the time, they are also categorized according to continents, countries, and areas. So if you are an advertiser, it is important to keep in mind the region that you want to advertise to.

This is similar to the classified ads section that you often find on newspapers, except that in this case, instead of flipping over newspaper pages, you use the computer and the internet to gain access to their services.

The most common examples of these websites are Craigslist, Ebay, Yahoo, and Gumtree.


How are they able to market your business?

Nowadays, classified advertisement websites are the go-to sites for people who want to look for information about certain products or business services. People visit them for a couple of reasons: to buy, to sell, to trade, or to simply check out their options. These websites are specifically designed to be organized and easy to navigate. Most of them also support a variety of languages around the globe such as English, French, German, and Spanish.

They get a lot of viewers everyday and they have good rankings on search engines too. For example, Craigslist, one of the leading classified ad websites right now on the web, gets 50 billion page views per month, with 60 million users each month in the US alone, and getting over 80 million classified ads each month. That is how powerful these websites are in terms of inviting people to check out your products or services and possibly converting them into clients.

Of course, not all classified ad websites are as influential as Craigslist. You also need to do some research as to what other websites are able to generate as much traffic. But as mentioned above, Craigslist, Ebay, Yahoo and Gumtree are four of the leading websites right now that offer classified ad services.
