Listasaurus.com, the only online classifieds site to pay cash rewards for listings and one of the first to allow advertisers to post video classifieds, is the newest venture founded by a Trump University graduate.
Founded by Melanie Heywood, Listasaurus.com features a revolutionary Pay Per Listing (PPL) program that allows advertisers to not only list for free, but accrue cash rewards for their text and video classifieds.
Heywood launched Listasaurus.com and the Pay Per Listing program during May 2007. The site finished 2007 with 500 registered users, a number Heywood expects to quadruple in 2008. Additionally, site traffic numbers upwards of 25,000 page views per month are expected to increase to 75,000 per month in 2008, due to marketing strategies Heywood learned at Trump University.
"One of the greatest things I learned from Trump University was how to analyze and research the competition and the marketplace," Heywood said. "I also learned to think outside the box, and try something that perhaps hadn't been done before--hence what led to us coming up with our Pay Per Listing program, which no one else is doing."
"Melanie Heywood took two marketing courses from Trump University which helped her closely examine her target market and competition, and then develop a more detailed marketing plan and budget with her business partner, Anderson Pinto," said Josef Katz, Vice President of Marketing at Trump University. "One of the skills we teach at Trump University is how to keep a marketing plan fluid, constantly employing research and analysis to revise your plan, based on what's working, what isn't, and what the competition is doing. These skills will successfully carry Listasaurus.com to increasingly higher profits and long-term success."
Listasaurus.com also offers low-cost business directory listings for every city nationwide. In keeping with Heywood's goal to bring a community feeling to the online classified world, a portion of its annual revenue is donated to Pet Rescue Miami as well as the Farm Sanctuary organization.
