Online Classified Advertising for Local Business

Online Classified AdvertisingFree Classified Ads or very low-cost online classifieds are a smart way to get your local business in front of hundreds and perhaps even thousands of potential new LOCAL customers from even a single post using a graphic ad design that will attract local buyers as well as from the search engine results you’ll get from your free classifieds if they are done correctly as you can see in the video below. 

By far, one of the best marketing methods available to you if you don’t have a hefty marketing budget, is to create and post a (free or low cost) local online classified advertising campaign.

We’ve even put together a list of the top 500 classified advertising websites that you can get for free just for the asking.  You will find the box to order that list way down at the bottom of this post.  Just scroll all the way down to the bottom of this article, fill out the form, and get immediate access to the list!

This is a marketing strategy we recommend to our new clients who are just getting their businesses off the ground and usually don’t have much by way of a marketing budget.  It should be noted however, that this method works just as well for established businesses, or any business owner who wants to advertise “specials” in their local area, from time to time.

Here’s Why…

The most important benefit to using this marketing strategy is that the prospective clients who view your ad are very targeted.  They are people who are already looking for YOUR specific product or service in an effort to find something that they need or want.  It makes sense for your business to focus it’s marketing tactics to targeted traffic rather than non-targeted traffic and get found by the people who are already looking for your specific products and services. Don’t stop at just a general ad for your business!

Designs can be created to use as coupons, gift certificates, and many other types of promotions.  Use them to advertise your business using obscure holidays.  People will remember you for this and in turn, you’ll have a steady flow of new potential customers coming through your door.

Many online classified advertising websites like Craigslist, Oddles, and Backpage will let you market your products and services absolutely free of charge!  Others, charge a nominal fee for your listing.  There are hundreds of these sites available to you and for best results, we recommend placing your ads on several of them at a time.

You can literally get your business in front of hundreds and even thousands of potential new customers who are local to your own businesses location using this method.  Your online classified advertising campaign can generate a monthly cash flow into your business for just a few dollars and a small amount of effort on your part.

But it gets even better! You can make your business stand out from your competitors by simply adding a graphic to your ad like the one above or to the right.  Graphic ads can give your readers all the Online Classified Advertising campaigninformation they need at a glance.

More importantly, these graphic ads are much more appealing and attractive to the reader than using just a plain text ad. Graphic ads can be make clickable!

You can set up your graphic ad to drive potential customers to your website, your FaceBook Business page or to wherever you want them to go with just the click of a mouse button. While all this is great… there is another big benefit to creating a local online classified ad campaign, if done correctly using search engine optimization, your classified ads will appear in Google’s search results when someone searches for the words in your ad.

Take a look for yourself.  The video below will demonstrate how that works.
