Like other fairly new classified ad sites, OfferUp was created with a matching mobile app to cater to its mobile users. They offer a five-star rating system to encourage sellers to build their credibility and a watch feature to let sellers monitor their items being sold on the platform. The most unique feature is OfferUp’s haggle option, where buyers and sellers can directly communicate to negotiate prices with each other.
This causes more and more companies to opt to adapt their advertisements to the fastest growing medium. And contrary to what happened long ago when the majority of mobile advertisements were just simple adaptations of computer advertisements, now advertisements are more intended to be viewed from a smartphone without being bothersome; whether they be text, video or images.
Pinterest ads are simply pieces of content pinned by brands and advertisers. When marketing a specific product, marketers create Pinterest advertisements by adding a dollar sign before the price amount to the description. This tells Pinterest that this item is for sale at that specific price. Pinterest marketers can then link the pinned item to the official product page to drive retail traffic.

Reddit is a social news aggregation site that is a little different than typical social media sites. Essentially, links, posts or images are submitted by users and then rated by other users on the site. Content that gain the most up-votes moves toward the top of the Reddit list in the various categories giving them a greater level of exposure. This has become number 3 on the world’s most visited websites with more than 500 million monthly visitors.
Hop over to Medium and publish a post that can be seen by readers. The first time I published a post to Medium, it got over 17,000 views—99 percent of which came from their community, not mine. Of course, inside of the post I had several links back to my stuff, which got me some solid referral traffic. You should identify any blogs or websites that are influential in your industry and send them some original content to publish. When you do guest post, make sure that you have a strong author byline attached with links back to your best stuff. It’s a natural flow for someone who reads an awesome post by a new author to see who wrote it and dig deeper, maybe by checking them out on Twitter or visiting their site.

It also gives you the option to include a link back to your website. Users of the site can search with specific filters like location, keyword, ad ID, and even the ad owner’s name, so make sure you enter your details accurately.
Sign up and become an active member on Facebook groups relevant to your industry. Not only are these groups great for networking, but they’re also a goldmine for scoring new business. The secret is to not spam these groups with products or services you sell. Instead, provide value to the group by sharing success stories, helpful tips, and insightful knowledge.
