Advertising with free and paid classified ads is a great way to promote your network marketing business. Classified ads are textually based ads where the general public can solicit their products, services, and opportunities.
Classified ads are typically limited in ad space. An ad consist of as little as a headline and phone number. It may also offer more details, such as a contact person, an address, or a description of the offering.
You will often find classified ads in the rear of periodicals such as magazines. Since most magazines are targeted towards a particular niche, you will want to pick a relative magazine to be sure you are advertising to the right audience.
In addition to traditional offline classified advertising, there are also online classified ads. These are usually not as targeted as the ads you find in magazines; however ad postings are segmented by category.
Most online classified ad sites offer free posting. Many have upgrade options that allow you additional benefits such as higher ad visibility, an extended expiration date, or unlimited posting privileges.
One classified ad will not get you a ton of exposure for your home business, but there is strength in numbers. This can get very time consuming.
If you are going to use classified ads, you may want to consider the upgrading to a paid account or using a submission service that will automatically send your ad out to thousands of classified ad sites for a nominal fee.
