Step by Step Guide

to Post a Free Ad on

  • Click “Post New Ad” button at the top right of your home page screen.How to Post an Ad on - Step 1
  • Select the “Category” and “Sub-Category” which best describes what you are listing.
    • Click “Go” – Which takes you to the next screen.
  • Fill in the information needed.  Remember, you are trying to attract people to your ad.
    • Title – A title can make or break the success of your ad. Your headline should be clear and succinct…so describe your item in as few words as possible.  Keep it simple — adjectives like elegant, charming, cheap, etc. should be saved for your description section.  
      • Do use make/manufacturer, condition, model. Use Keywords that will attract people to look at your specific ad.
      • Do not use price on — as price will automatically show at the top right of your post once complete.
      • Give enough information – Remember, like a store front, this is the one opportunity you have to draw people to click into your ad.
    • Price – You do not need to include $.
    • Street – This is not a mandatory field, and you should only include an address if you want the location to be known…like in a “For Rent” ad.
    • City – We recommend you do include the City.
    • State – CO
    • Country – United States
    • Zip Code – Recommended…this helps for mapping.
    • Tags – Use short, specific keywords — tags are for people to search for your item.
    • Description – Describe your product in detail here, but don’t be too wordy. Provide pertinent information. This is where you want to draw a picture with words…and make your reader want to contact you.
    • Add Image – We recommend you always include at least one image. Good photos should entice people to click into your ad — Or better yet, to contact you.
    • Featured Listing  – This is not required and you will not check this box for a free ad. Featured listings cost only $15 and run for 10 days — they are placed at the very top of the home page in the featured slider section. This is a great option for items that you want to grab a lot of attention — Like Real Estate Ads, Open Houses, Special Events, Auto for Sale, etc.
  • Click “Continue” – which takes you to “Review Your Listing.”
    • Be certain to check for spelling and grammar errors.
    • Read the “Rules and Guidelines” of posting your ad on — by clicking “Continue,” you are agreeing to comply with them.
  • Next, your Order Summary will appear. Here you can click to “View Ad Listing” – which takes you to your live ad. The section to the right is the contact section where buyers can contact you.
