Your classifieds website needs complete seo services i.e search engine optimization. SEO is essential for any types of online business and without this you can never lead your business into successful.

SEO services consists of technical site audit, keyword research, on page optimization, off page optimization especially content marketing and finally social media integration, management and marketing.

You can do this on Facebook by offering a few free classified ads to new subscribers. You can also give out promotional codes on Twitter or Facebook for people who want to advertise on your site. There are several ways to easily get this started.

One way is to talk to your family and friends and see they have anything to sell. Add this to your site. Make sure that you have enough categories that people can easily find a place to advertise on. There are many people who join forums and will advertise their site in their signature link. You can do this and also you can self-promote yourself on other classified ad sites and post your rates on there. This can interest people into joining your site and advertising with you at a much lower rate. I would use a sliding rate schedule to start off with so people can benefit from your site and more people will find your site and advertise with you.

If your site is for your local area then you can go around and hand out flyers to help promote your new site. This will benefit people living in your city and they will go to you for advertising instead of advertising in the newspaper.
