Photos and Sound Clips Provide Info That Won't Fit in a Pricey Print Ad

Got something to sell to the

general public but frustrated with the costly word limits on newspaper classifieds? Whether you're selling collectibles or cars, advertising a service business, or looking for employees, can help.

Don't worry. You don't have to give up the more traditional approach -- the classified section of your local newspaper -- if you don't want to. Just refer those readers to your online classified at, where they'll find a detailed description, pictures, and perhaps a movie or sound clip.

Priced at just $4 for 30 days, listings contain up to 1,000 words, four photos, one sound clip and one movie clip. The ads are easy to create and have a professional look that can be enhanced with scrolling banners, colored text and hyperlinks. Advertisers can change them as often as they like.

At, you don't need to get rid of your ad after closing a deal -- just recycle it. Listings are good for 30 days, so you can simply update it to offer other goods or services.

Or use a single ad to tout several items. A car dealer, for example, can run a newspaper classified that lists several vehicles and directs readers to a listing. There they'll find photos of four cars, each with 250 words of text -- far more than a typical newspaper classified at a fraction of the price. Keep renewing the ad and you'll keep your ad number.

In the market to buy? You can search for goods close to home. The site's search feature uses zip codes, area codes and phone numbers in addition to key words and phrases.

So, if you've got something to buy, sell, trade or just show off, fold up that newspaper and check out Free trial ads are available through July 1.
