    Typically you're advised to use classified to generate traffic to your offers. In my experience very little traffic has come from those ads I posted and even those few clicks are very low quality.

    So I wouldn't recommend it...

    Hi DURABLEOILCOM,

    There are hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of 100% free Classified Ads out there, the question is what you're looking to advertise because most of them don't accept any kind of ad.

    The two that will give you the best results are Craigslist, and Gumtree. With that said, you can see a list here with the top 30 Classified Ads sites you can instantly put your ad on.

    Hope that helps!

    Free classified ads will hardly ever generate the type of leads for building your MLM business. In addition, such an amateur marketing practice presents a stark contrast to the quality of products and opportunity offered by your company. The most successful MLM professionals (including those in your company) won't stoop to such lowbrow methods and have never advised their downlines to resort to these extremely desperate measures.

    I wouldn't agree on that.
    When I started, made $9000 , yes $9000 in 2 month only using craigslist with just one niche.

    Today, I'm using craigslist with few other niches, which gives me on average 5 sales a day, just by craigslist

      9000 in 2 months just with craigslist? Do you use anything else at this point and have how long have you had consistant results cause I was thinking of getting started using classified ads myself. I figured responding to emails and baving an automated phone reaponse system might help in lu of a website and blog for now, I figure post the product without the implied intent of sale but to build curiosity then answer any curious prospects via email

    Online classifieds don't really seem to do the trick, because few generate any real traffic. If you can't make use if the big boy sites, then it can be really tough.

    Honestly, I would just stay away from classified sites. Too much headache and it's very frowned upon.

    Free classifieds is not a great traffic source. If you are looking for FREE traffic sources, you can't beat social media (Facebook, YouTube or Instagram). However, while free, it will require a lot of your time to build up an audience on these platforms.

      Especially for MLM (as in your business), free classifieds is a poor choice, and perhaps among the lowest of the low for advertising. The biggest problem is that it isn't easily duplicateable; a major reason for stalled business growth and downline attrition. Your company has some extremely powerful and proven marketing systems already in place.

    Here's a classified ad golden nugget:

    Don't try to sell anything in your classified ad; rather, have just one purpose in mind -- to get a response that will allow you to contact the prospect. That's it - nothing more, nothing less.

      That's probably about the best you can do with them. And even with that,imo, it's very limited in overall benefits

    There are still some sections in CL that you can post a link.

    You could post a free online training in the classes section, assuming you are doing MMO.

    Whether in 2018 or 2013, the quality of this traffic - if it even flows through - will be poor. Only because it requires no level of expertise, or effort, really, on your part, to post the ads there.

    Dilution; since anybody can post ads on these sites, 99.99% are terrible quality ads.

    Meanwhile, if you get really good at writing through practice, and you guest post on top blogs - showing off the skill you worked persistently to develop - you will generate super quality traffic through this marketing method.

    As a rule; if a chimp or bot can advertise on the network, the traffic will be crap LOL. But if it requires skills, and years of practice, you betcha that the select few who post there will enjoy quality traffic.

    Free classifieds suck - except Craigslist (depending on what you sell). And dont ever buy the "classified ad submitter" softwares. It's an exercise in futility.

    Hello, there are numerous website for classified submission. I would suggest that you can use classified daily, you can get some amount of traffic but do not rely upon fully as it not sure whether you will get traffic or not but keep doing on good websites such as locanto.com, backapage.com and other websites.

    When people post things like this, it usually means some kind of sneaky exploit or hack, like putting MLM solicitations on job listing sites.

    Not saying you, specifically, are doing this, but if it quacks like a duck, odds are it's a duck...

    If you already have two lists of the "top classifieds", why are you wasting time asking us to build you a third list?

    Why aren't you testing the lists you already have, if you're convinced that free classifieds are the way to go?
