Not finding the perfect unique gift for someone special can be the downside of the typical festive season. This year more and more people are heading online for their holiday shopping. Buying online is a great avenue for special gifts; however, on time delivery can be a troubling factor. MyAdSource is bringing online shopping closer to home. The perfect gift could be in your neighbor's house.
MyAdSource, a new technology for newspapers, allows consumers to search both print and online classified ads found locally or nationally through their newspaper's website.
"I was worried about finding the specific present my husband was wanting for Christmas. By being able to search all online and print classifieds together I was able to find it quickly, and find it locally," says Amy Dickerson of Salt Lake City, Utah.
"We are excited to be the first to provide consumers the ability to find incredible deals on items and services through their local newspaper website. This one stop place to search print and online classified ads allows consumers the ability to locate hard-to-find items that are perfect for the holidays," says MyAdSource Vice President Jack Morgan. "Consumers can visit any newspaper site that belongs to the MyAdSource network and through that site instantly receive all online and print classified ads that appear in their local paper, as well as, any other paper in the network," says Morgan.
With the stampede of die hard shoppers on Black Friday, the appeal of online shopping continues to grow. Newspapers using MyAdSource are making holiday shopping much easier for their consumers.
