To place classified advertisements online, create an account on a website that hosts classified ads, such as eBay or Craigslist, then create an advertisement by filling out the required fields such as product or service name, location, description and pictures, if applicable. Some websites charge fees for posting onto their communities, while others only require fees if the product or service is sold through the website.
There are numerous websites that host classified advertisements that are available for users to search through. Many of the websites are made for specific products, such as O'Reilly Auto Parts, while others host any type of legal advertisement for a good or service, such as Craigslist. Use the following steps to place a classified advertisement on Craigslist.
- Go to the Craigslist website and click on "post to classifieds"
- Select a category and enter all of the required text for the post
- Confirm the post through a valid email address
On the left side of the Craigslist website there are a number of blue links. Click on the "post to classifieds" link.
Some of the categories that a post can be placed in include job offerings, vehicle sales and lost and found. Once a category has been chosen, fill out the required text fields such as "posting title," "posting description" and "reply to." When finished, click on the "continue" button.
An email will be sent to the address that was listed in the "reply to" box. Open the email and confirm that the post is correct and should be placed on the website.
