DFWFreeclassifieds.com Local Classifieds for Small Businesses Serving Texas
Dallas, Texas April 7, 2010 – Small businesses and individuals now have a new option for selling their products and services in the DFW Metroplex: DFWFreeClassifieds.com. The brainchild of Internet entrepreneur Charles Hill, the DFWFreeclassifieds.com website aims to help sellers not only move their products faster and more profitably, but also to build ongoing relationships with their customers.
Describing some of the limitations of current classified ad services, Mr. Hill relates, “There are so many products –boats, saddles, furniture – that are too expensive to ship, so national auction sites just don’t work. You need to sell these types of items locally, but newspaper classified ads reach a much smaller audience today than it did even 5 years ago. And most classified ad websites don’t offer much more usability than a traditional newspaper ad, making it unnecessarily hard for local sellers and buyers to connect. Given the limitations of the existing services, I saw a large unmet need in the Metroplex for a service that takes local classified ads to the next level.”
DFWFreeclassifieds.com is unique in offering ads that can include not just text and photos, like for example craigslist, but also links to YouTube videos, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and company websites. The site will also display the seller’s location on a map as part of an ad. The site’s search and browsing tools display not just a list of ad headlines but also pictures and prices, so buyers can more easily decide which items are worth their time. The new site also overcomes other complaints internet sellers have with other classified ad and auction sites, such as high fees and lack of control over ad visibility.
Hill continued, “We offer free online classified ads (text plus 1 photo) for the individual who has just one item to sell. But for those selling multiple items or more complex items, a $10/month ad can include up to 3 photos as well as links to YouTube videos, a Facebook page, and a Twitter profile. Really, the best way to sell a product these days is with a short video that shows all aspects of a product and how it works.”
The site is also ideal for businesses who want to build a longer-term relationship with their customers and sell additional products or services to them in the future, or those who want a permanent ad for hand-crafted items or specialty products. These businesses can upgrade to a $49/month ad, which includes all the features of the $10/month ad plus a link to the company’s blog or other website and also keeps the ad in a preferred position where it will be noticed by more people. “A website, like a storefront, is nothing without customer traffic, and advertising some of your specific products or services on other sites is a proven way to attract new customers,” Hill reminded.
DFWFreeClassifieds.Com offers both free and premium ads, providing entrepreneurs, small businesses, and hobbyists a way to reach more Metroplex shoppers and sell their products and services online faster and more profitably, using the latest professional marketing tools including videos.
