My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
Hoobly is also a lot like Craigslist but with more security features. For one, this website requires registration via email instead of waiting until right before publishing an ad to ask for email verification. This helps to prevent accounts being linked to temporary addresses, which then reduces the risk of spam or potential fraud. It is free to post an ad, and Hoobly offers a wide variety of categories that are available for browsing even before registering for an account.
Targeted emails are not only free, but statistically they provide the highest rate of return on the time and effort spent to create and distribute them. You have to have an email list to make this an effective marketing technique, but there are a vast number of ways, 80 of them, to build your email list and make this into your best free advertising.
It would be sort of ridiculous to not include Google My Business as the first place you should have your business advertised for free. After all, you have just spent a ton of time, effort and cash to make certain that your web site was search engine optimized for Google. With Google business you have the potential of being found within the nearly 8 billion searches that occur every day. With Google My Business your physical location and phone number can be linked to Smartphone app users so they can easily navigate to your door. Link up your other social media channels too.
Create listings on local search sites. These include MerchantCircle.com, InsiderPages.com, UrbanSpoon.com, Mapquest.com and Local.com. Like Google places, enter your business phone number, and follow the prompts to set up your account. Search for other local businesses to find additional local directories and more opportunities to find out how to advertise locally for free on the Internet.
Adsglobe is a free classifieds website that automatically detects your location so it can immediately display your ads to users near your location. You can also manually change the location filter by using their drop-down list. The site will prompt you to sign up as a member in order to start posting free ads, which you can complete using your email or your Facebook login details.
Craigslist has some pretty miserable users that have nothing better to do than to flag your ad... Oh, and they do... Over, and over, and over. Too many power tripping people without mediation. They should be monitored, and banned for making other people's lives difficult. I doubt that'll ever happen though. It has good traffic, but it's pretty useless, and time consuming when others are allowed to have your ad taken down in an instant, and you have to keep reposting it. God only knows what their mental issues are. Craigslist bows down to to cry babies who want stuff for free. If it's not free, they'll flag you. If it's competition, they'll flag you. If you get flagged, your ad gets removed without review. Had this happen to me repeatedly for the last couple years of my unsavory experience with this site. I give up. Garbage automated site. Totally under the thumb of people that want to dictate their own ideas.
PennySaver is a great advertising option when you want a more localized target market. Their search bar allows for a number of filters, including location-based listings. What’s great about PennySaver is that once you register on their site, your ads also get posted on their affiliate and subsidiary sites based on the category of your ad. You can also get email reminders regarding your live ads and can cancel them anytime.
