Advertising for a new business or blog can be very expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. A great way of gaining customers for a business or traffic to a blog is to post free ads on classified ad websites.
The first step to using classified ads to promote a business or blog is finding the right websites to post free ads in South Africa. Among the top free classified websites in Africa are JunkMail, Gumtree, Locanto, and WeGotAds. Craigslist and ClassifiedsSouthAfrica are two more top sites to post free ads. Some of these sites require registration before posting an ad, others do not.
For most free classified ad websites, to post free ads involves the same process. Choose a main category, then sub category, after that location and type of ad, whether searching for or offering.

Then the ad is previewed and posted.
Post Free Ads That Stand Out

Keep the title of the ad short and original. Also, make sure that it’s relevant and draws attention. When listing keywords and searchable terms, make sure they are relevant, also. And don’t over stuff them. Also, regularly reporting the ad will make sure it stays at the top of the list. Be sure to delete previous posts though because you don’t want to spam the site.

Post free ads in multiple regions, and separate ads for different services offered or sections of the blog. This will increase views because people will always look at ads on their own area first. It’s also a good idea to set up a separate email address to use specifically for free ads you post.
