Advertising as a Marketing Tool is no Longer Tough
Advertising is now no longer a tedious process, requiring resources in terms of money, labor, time etc. It is true that it was used to be a time-consuming and frustrating process before, but not anymore. Free ad posting sites have sprung up all over the internet where you can put your advertisement, for free!
Why free ad Posting Sites?
The advent of the global village, thanks to the internet, means that everyone now shops online. The internet is the best way to find quality products, of required specifications at a required cost. E-marketing has taken a huge leap. Depending on the popularity of the website, you can get your message across to millions of consumers worldwide. Needless to say, the audience is not confined to a single locale, but to the whole world. Professional advertisers recognize these sites as a major marketing tool, a must-have feature, to attract consumers to the product. All you need to do is make a free account on any of these sites and you are good to go.
Major free ad Posting Sites:
These include www.olx.com, of which we regularly see ads on TV as well. Then there arewww.craiglist.com, www.quickr.com, and www.adlagao.com. These websites are famous for buying and selling in a wide range of products. These sites are normally chosen on the basis of popularity, and thus, the numbers of visitors they get each day. These websites have a high Google page rank, which is what matters in determining the success of these free ad posting sites. But of course, it also depends on user-friendliness.
These sites are the backbone of small businesses, and e-marketers, but also for major advertisers.
The major hub of e-advertising are India, Canada, Australia, UK and US, with popularity spreading to other parts of the world as well.
These free ad posting sites are ideal for small businesses and start-up ventures with very little finance to start with, and who want to get the product quickly into the market. These websites are good for businessmen who want to reduce the lead time (time lag between order placed and delivery to the customer) though that depends on the specific business. And it’s simple too! Take a picture of the product, upload on the page, and write a description listing the features of the product. This apparently simple marketing technique has been the source of success for several businesses.
