How you can advertise online
Are you looking to advertise for free? Then you would be delighted to know that there are many websites where you can place your online ads for free. You may usually upgrade to paid options where you get more flexibility in placing your ads. These are commercial sites.

How to advertise on Craigslist
Craigslist has to be the top free advertising site online. Its popularity began in the US and has spread to other countries. Before placing an ad, read the conditions in order to get the most out of your ad placement. Non compliance can get your ad deleted quickly, wasting your effort. Make sure to place your ad in the correct category in order for your ad to be found by your target users easily. Your ad is only one out of thousands of ads, so do all you can to maximise the effectiveness of your advertising. Remember also that your ad will only be available online for a certain time-frame. However, if you have targeted wisely, you should have no problem receiving offers before the time is up.
Other places to advertise online
Job boards First of all, what are you advertising for? Craigslist may be popular but it is not necessarily the most effective site for you to advertise on. Specificity can help. For instance, if you are advertising job offers, consider some of the highly trafficked job sites. What about some specific job sites? Are you hiring writers? Then why not try job sites or boards for writers only? These may not be 'official' job boards but a web-page out of a writers blog, for example. Being specific can get you higher quality responses. Relevant forums Remember that there usually is a section called 'advertisements' or 'advertising' in a forum. You may want to place your ad here if the forum has users you are targeting at. Placing your ad here can be free or not. In some forums, there is a section for free advertisements and another for paid advertisements.
