Craiglist, OLX and More!

Posted by

When marketing your business part of your strategy has got to be getting the word out to the general public.

Online classified ads are a great way to market your products and services, including events. There are several to choose from, including Craig’s List, OLX, and Bernardo’s List (for those of you in New York City) to name a few. Don’t forget your local newspaper may run their classified ads online as well.

You can post products and services for sale, as well as events on most classified ad sites, and many times these ads are free.

Typically the ad will run in one category or town only, and it will run for a certain number of days. If you’re posting for a “virtual” event like a teleclass or webinar, I recommend posting in the largest city categories like New York or Los Angeles.

I also suggest you compose your ad copy in your own word processor so that you can simply cut and paste the text into the ad when you’re renewing it.
