Local Ads Free Classifieds Service Now Also for Communities and Charities

Share Article

Six months after launch, the free classified ads service Local Ads has developed into an all-round platform for advertising on the web. Online notice boards and online charity shops now complete the initial free classified ads service of the portal.

Local Ads started as a free classifieds service early in 2006 and has since then strengthened its market position as the UK’s most innovative and easy to use classifieds ads portal. Not only is LocalAds totally free for private individuals, it is also free for businesses who can easily create their very own LocalAds online store as well as listing products. Whilst the main focus remains classifieds, two new innovative products, totally free, have recently been released for Charity Shops and Communities.

http://www.charityshop.co.uk allows Charity Shops to get a free online store that can be created in minutes. The online shore is fully customisable and enables a charity to list what is in their store online and additionally place ads for campaigns, events, volunteers, donations, in fact anything. Through optimisation and integration with LocalAds.co.uk charities achieve maximum online exposure with all popular search engines accessing a far larger audience than is traditionally possible from a shop. http://www.charityshop.co.uk is a valuable tool for raising money and the profile of the charity in the local community.

“We are especially proud to offer this unique product that will help good causes all over the country,” Keith Taylor annotates.

Secondly, a free notice board service has been created at http://www.communityboard.co.uk for schools, clubs, communities, churches and other non-profit making organisations, aiming to replace the traditional offline blackboards found in corridors or receptions. Each online notice board comes with its own, unique URL, extensive administration features like approval of each notices or sorting, and an optional password protection. Notices are placed by community members who, in case of protected boards, need to know the password. There also is a sample notice board.

“We believe community boards will be invaluable to parents and teachers for organising club and social events. Huge interest has also been expressed by Church groups so it will be interesting to see how it develops. This is a great example of how the latest web technology can benefit communities and all for free,” Keith Taylor, managing director of Local Ads says.
