Use Premium and Paid classified sites to generate leads quicker

List of paid advertising sites – Post paid ads and featured listings to create leads fastest way possible!



How to produce leads and results faster with classified sites ? Simple, but a little costlier way is going paid while advertising online on classified sites. Want to generate excellent leads and sales for your business in an easy and fastest way possible through classified sites? You should try using paid classified sites as they provide best exposure and traffic to your product listings compared to free ad posting.  So,  our reference point is ‘free versus paid classifieds’ and we are not going to discuss paid advertising, like Google AdWords and Bing ads here.

Paid advertising could cost you even less than the free one!

That’s true, in most of the cases, as far as my own experience is concerned. Point is, you spend more time and labor in getting the traffic which you could get more quickly with less labor. If you consider the value of time, then paid advertising or posting premium ads is far better than the free advertising. So, in a scale of time and traffic, paid advertising is more rewarding and more paying and it may prove an effective advertising technique for your online marketing strategies !

Following are some of the most popular businesses and products that may use paid advertising and maximize their ad views by getting highest possible exposure on any classified site, that is through – paid listing/featured ads/premium banner ads/ad space/paid membership :-

    Paid advertising could cost you even less than the free one! woow i like this line…Great list of classifieds.. keep it up

    • adslistor says

      Thanks Alma. That’s true. Sometimes for someone free may not be free and paid may cost less than the free ones 🙂

      Example? Ok! Imagine you are a small business owner and you don’t have any one else to promote your business online. In this case if you start posting ads, sending promotional mails, writing blogs, then what will happen ? you will find yourself spending more time in advertising rather than managing your business which may (will) ultimately cost you much more than what you could have paid to some one else for doing all that business promotional activities for you.

    • adslistor says

      Classifieds knowledge is very beneficially,specially when you are in beginning phase of your business. 5 years ago one of my friends has started a recruitment consulting firm and he wanted lots of candidates for his business to be successful, but he could not afford posting ads on premium job sites, like Monster or I suggested him using free classifieds websites to post jobs for hiring requirements . And, it gave great results .He didnt have to worry about investments.

    OLX and Quikr both are my favorite… both is basically a free classified site and also offer paid listings for a nominal amount and the most popular and highest search engine traffic getting classified websites all over the world.

      Hi Becky. That’s right. We should use their premium ad posting options as they are much cheaper than PPC ads for any amount of traffic.
