    Is Free Classified ADs More Welcome In SA?

    Once when we search with google.com, we will find there are so many classified ads sites in SA,esp. for the second hand products?
    Why it so popular here?
    Customers to customers deals are more reliable?

    I expect free classified ads are popular because they're free - there's no risk.

    No sale - no loss.

    Does that say something about our psyche?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    To me and most of the Chinese merchant, less risk on advertising is more acceptable. I know: No Pains,No Gains. But all of us know, the free promoting methods is taking an important role in today's ebusiness marketing. As to SNS, most of them are free. We all pay much attention on our revenue of investment.
    Free classified ads are working well now. I have tried to post one item on junkmail.co.za and I get about 10 response in one day. I was very happy and I thought this was great. But after talking with them, we found there was a burden that the Mutual trust. We are afraid of the cheater and they are afraid of we are a cheater.
    That's the truth!
