Place a free classified ad by visiting a site, such as ClassifiedAds.com or Oodle.com, and clicking the link for posting a free ad. Most sites do not require an account until after you post an ad. After clicking the link, select a category and location for your ad, then add a title, description and price. The exact setup on each site may differ slightly.
Posting images with your ad typically attracts more interest. Most sites allow you to post more than one image. Post clear images that explicitly show the status of the item and its condition. If you need to edit your ad, you can do that by accessing the account you created when you posted the ad.
Expiration dates on ads vary depending on the site. Ads posted on ClassifiedAds.com do not expire for six months. On the other hand, ads posted on Oodle.com offer the option of reposting the ad after 30 days. The ad can only be reposted once.
If the item in your ad sells or if you want to remove the ad, you have the option of deleting it from the system. For both sites, you can access the option to delete an ad by logging into your account and confirming the deletion.
