Have you tried the traditional methods and implemented all the advice on creating a classifieds ads based website but are still dissatisfied with the results? Are you looking for a tool that will help you create better classifieds websites? Look no further.
Let me introduce you to Adverts-a light weight, developer friendly classifieds plugin for WordPress. It will help you create a WordPress classifieds or business directory site very easily.
This plugin can be extended with bundled modules. To do that just go to WPadmin/Classifieds/Options panel, select modules you want to use and modify the functions as per your needs and requirements. Thus you can build a unique site you always wanted to build.
You can use the Adverts plugin to build a few different kinds of classifieds sites:
- A website, where you allow your visitors to post ads. This technique allows you to achieve automation in your work. Which means your business will be running even when you won’t be actively involved with it.
- A website where you allow your visitors to post ads and then you charge them-by PayPal or bank transfer-for posting ads.
- A website where only the administrator can publish ads. For example if you are already running a popular website and intend to sell some of your own stuff.
