Free classified sites offer a variety of additional paid services that can give your ads a leg up on the competition. Some of those services are relatively useless, like marking your ad as urgent (i.e. desperate; expect low-ball offers). That’s not the case with the following services, which provide invaluable ways to supercharge your views.
Top Ad – This feature keeps your ad at the top of page 1 in the specified category, generating up to 10x as many views. It’s also far more useful than the cheaper but quite limited Bump Up service.
Homepage Gallery – This paid option posts your ad to the classified site’s main page, giving your ad immediate access to a huge audience and boosting views by as much as 7x.
Highlight Ad – It may seem like a useless feature, but even a simple highlighting job can actually boost your views by 2x or more and is one of the cheapest services offered.
