St. Joseph, MO (PRWEB) August 18, 2005
Classifieds2GO.com, which creates technologies that enhance print and online publications, announced it has signed a 2-year agreement with Prime Time Newspapers, which publishes 13 newspapers and magazines in and around San Antonio, TX.
Under the agreement, four of Prime Time NewspapersÂ publications will implement Classifieds2GO.comÂs web-based solutions on their websites. The San Antonio Herald News, the Southside Reporter, the Recorder Bargain Book and the Prime Time Military Newspapers will each launch powerful new interactive classifieds sites. These new local online classifieds centers will be composed of career, automotive, real estate, and merchandise ads generated by site visitors or advertisers of Prime Time Newspapers. These sites will provide an online employment source for finding better local candidates and jobs, as well as a forum for area buyers and sellers to speed the transaction process.
Gregg Rosenfield, COO of Prime Time Newspapers, Inc., noted a need for publications to embrace the internet as an enormous opportunity. ÂWe realized the future is now,Â Rosenfield explains. ÂWe saw our classifieds slipping away and had to look for a better alternative. Classifieds2GO was recommended by a classifieds consultant.Â
ÂClassifieds2GO.com is focused on keeping the ÂcommunityÂ in community newspapers,Â said Jay Dee Shores, President and CEO of Classifieds2GO.com. ÂThis partnership with Prime Time will bring readers, advertisers and employers closer together through fast and friendly technologies. Whether someone is looking for a job, a car or a home around the corner or across the nation, these sites will encourage commerce and keep the focus on the local market.Â
Upon the siteÂs launch, local job seekers will be able to search for jobs, post their resume online, and apply with potential employers, all at no charge. Similarly, anyone shopping for a home, a car, or general merchandise will enjoy searching ads complete with photos and composing their own Âwishlists,Â a collection of all the features theyÂre looking for.
Anyone hoping to sell their goods, their vehicle, their home, or make a new hire will benefit from these new online tools. Sellers and employers will be empowered to create classified ads, place them online or in print in any of the participating Prime Time Newspapers, search resumes, and track the entire process. Secure logins and credit card transactions will enable them to take advantage of these tools from anywhere, at any time, with or without the assistance of Prime TimeÂs staff.
Both Classifieds2GO.com and Prime Time Newspapers are confident that this partnership will benefit the communityÂs readers, advertisers, and publications themselves. According to Rosenfield, Âwe have the opportunity to reach a new audience and position our company to keep pace with trends, technology and buying habits.Â
