The purpose of Purchase.com is to help businesses grow, profit and organize.
And I’m noticing a lot of Classifieds-related searches on Google lately, such as the following list from April 2009 (the parentheses are an estimate of the monthly searches):
That’s a lot of searches!
People seem thirstier than ever for the ability to post classified ads (perhaps due to the economy) — and they usually prefer that they are free.
New Place to Post and Search Free Classifieds
Towards that end, I employed a friend of mine to help create a simple free business classifieds application that allows anyone with an email address to post a product or service for sale.
To post a free business classified, you simply go to the home page Purchase.com or specifically to Add a Free Business Classified.
Other classified Web sites, such as Craigslist (which I’m a big fan of), allow you to post most classified ads for free; however, Purchase.com plans to differentiate from them.
Such difference might include focusing on business to business classifieds, small business classifieds, free local classifieds and some other items (more on that later).
For now, go experiment with your free classified ad posting on Purchase.com — you can do it in just a few minutes.
We have kept the design very simple so please be forgive its ugliness…but the functionality should work.
And, as always I’d really like to hear what you think.
