What is a classified ad and how can you use it sell like crazy?
Briefly, a classified advertisement is placed by someone who wishes to sell a specific product or service. The person browsing for that product will then go to the classified ad section and read the ads that are most relevant to them.
Typically, the two main ways to place a classified ad is through the newspaper or online. The newspaper is effective if you are appealing to a local and more concentrated audience. This is beneficial if you are not a business person yet want to sell a household item for example. The great thing about classified ads is that you can be an entrepreneur or a house- wife and still place an ad regardless of your status.
If you wish to target a much larger audience however, I would strongly suggest that you place your classified ad online. This will reach a huge number of people, locally and globally. If you are a business person and have a company then add your website also, this will drive traffic to your site.
