eCommerce Free Classifieds ListingsThere Are Many Things You Can Do To Invigorate Your Online Sales: Something You Can Do Easily and Affordably Is Free Online Classified Ads

Free-to-List Classified-Ad Sites are a good choice for online sellers who have larger items that are difficult to ship. Most general categories on classified sites don’t charge a fee to list, but special categories (such as adult services) are usually fee-based. Classified-ad sites take no responsibility for the transactions and you deal with local customers face-to-face to complete a sale.

Below Are Some Sites Where You Can Market Your Products

Kijiji Free Classified Listing Site1. Kijiji is the #1 Classifieds site in Canada. Kijiji enables Canadians to connect locally with other Canadians to exchange goods and services. Their motto is: Free, Simple, Local. They are an eBay-owned network of classified sites in Canada, the United States (eBay Free Classifieds in USA) and cities across the world.


Craigslist Free Classified Listing Site2. Craigslist is a popular and large classified ad site. On the surface it may not look special, there are others that look more appealing to the eye, but there is little doubt that when it comes to selling items it is a good website. Choose a location site from cities in Canada, the United States or the world.


Facebook Marketplace Free Classified Listing Site3. Facebook Marketplace. On Facebook, Marketplace, which is operated by Oodle, helps people buy and sell items in a trusted environment (e.g. within your network of friends).


Backpage Free Classified Listing Site4. Backpage is a very well known and respected classified ads site that hosts adverts covering everything from individual items for sale to jobs, services, and a whole lot more. Covers cities and regions in Canada, the United States and Mexico.


Kijiji Free Classified Listing Site5. Hoobly. Integrates a local classifieds market into a national marketplace. This lets consumers look for general ads and then be more specific about location. Ads placed on Hoobly are free; however you may opt to place a Premium Ad, which is posted to a paid area.


OLX Free Classified Listing Site6. OLX. An established online classified site available in more than 96 countries in 40 languages. Ads are free, but the site offers paid options that appear at the top of search results.


Oodle Free Classified Listing Site7. Oodle. Pulls millions of listings from all over the Web. Consumers can place an Oodle ad for free, by creating an online account. When you post to Oodle, your classified ad may also be posted to hundreds of other sites.


In setting up your free listings, the most important rule is to have as much information about the product as possible and you could consider purchasing (if they do not offer it free) a weblink back to your website. This greatly enhances the search of your site. Good Luck!!

I really like your blog.

Very nice colors and theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

Please answer back, I am looking to design my own blog and like to know where you got this from. Appreciate it.

Can anyone renmomecd the best free online classifieds sites besides Craigslist?I am looking for some pretty good online classifieds sites that offer free posting. I already use Craigslist, but am looking for something similar. I do searches, but always come up with sites that it looks like no one ever goes to. Any suggestions with links would be great.
