Classified ads are basically advertisement in a newspaper, magazine, or websites generally dealing with offers or requests for jobs, houses, apartments, used cars, and the like.
Advertisements in a newspaper are typically short, as they are charged for by the line or word, and are one newspaper column wide. Though classified ads are cheaper generally, placing a classified ad in a newspaper will cost you much more money than placing an ad on a site like Zamrea.com. A short ad in a newspaper for a day will cost you around K150, while a longer ad may cost you more than K350 a day.
Zamrea was designed to help our consumers meet the cost of advertising. Posting an ad on Zamrea.com is much easy and dozen of times cheaper (click here to see how to post class ads). You can place a classified ad for free or chose an ad package or buy membership package.
In print media, advertisements are grouped into categories or classes such as “for sale—telephones”, “wanted—kitchen appliances”, and “services—plumbing”, hence the term “classified”. And classified ads generally fall into two types: individuals advertising sales of their personal goods, and advertisements by local businesses. It is also a common trend for some businesses to use classified ads to hire new employees.
One disadvantage with newspaper classified advertising is that it doesn’t allow images, even though display ads, which do allow images, can be found in the classified section. With Zamrea.com, you can place as many images as possible about your products.
