Gainesville, VA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
MySchoolSwap.com, a new community advertising network that donates 50 percent of its advertising revenue to schools across the country, offers a free advertising platform through its School and Community category allowing members to post announcements, raise awareness or make requests.
As a national classified advertising web site with a focus on schools and their surrounding communities, MySchoolSwap stands apart from typical classified ad web sites by providing individual school pages for ad listings, user-appropriate content and a unique philanthropic business model. The new web site is starting to gain momentum with the new school year underway.
The School and Community category is a useful way for school volunteers, parents and community organizations like sports leagues or nonprofit groups to reach a targeted audience. Members post their own ad listings which are displayed on their chosen school page but are also viewable through searches like 'town' or 'zip code' enabling greater exposure. Listings on MySchoolSwap can also be shared on social media networks like Twitter and Facebook—extending the reach even further.
This free option includes subcategories such as School Events, Fundraisers, Scouts, Volunteer, Carpool, Yard Sale and Community Events—ideal for fundraising events, community performances, club news or enrichment programs. MySchoolSwap offers a sustainable promotional solution that does not require costly print marketing or advertising.
Not only is this new network a beneficial communication outlet, it’s also an online marketplace with a meaningful purpose. Members can buy credits securely on MySchoolSwap for $1 dollar each to post ads for items for sale, housing, jobs or professional services and 50 percent of all credit sales will be donated to their school of choice.
MySchoolSwap’s school pages create a unique and friendly experience for users—a familiar and convenient environment for exchanges and communication. With 134,000 public and private schools already in its database, any school, club or organization dedicated to the enrichment of children can request to have their page added and designated for donations.
“Most official school websites will only post news relating to their school,” says Cathy Shalvey, co-founder and president. “MySchoolSwap provides a marketplace and community bulletin board for everyone—parents, alumni, businesses and community groups—and puts them in front of an intended audience. Best of all, schools can earn much needed revenue through paid advertising by supporters.”
