Classified advertising, one of the major sources of income for the newspapers, has found a new destination. And that is the World Wide Web (www) or the internet. The following figures speak for themselves:

  • More than 3 billion dollars have been invested in online classified advertising in the year 2014.
  • Number of users to use online classified advertising doubled in a 4 year span ranging from 2005 to 2009.
  • Daily one-tenth of internet users browse online classified websites like Angels Ad, ebayclassifieds, craigslist.org and others.

Traditionally, people were stuck with 2-3 mediums of advertisements. They were newspapers, radios and televisions. The main drawback of these mediums was their high costs. People starting small or medium scale business did not have much capital to invest in such mediums.  Another major problem was the lack of space. Especially, in newspapers the charges were on per line basis. In order to save on the advertisement costs people resorted to giving one liner ads which were not much helpful to the buyers. There was no way to send photos or images with the ad. Or if photos could be sent they were quite expensive.

With the advent of internet and the coming up of online classified websites like Angels Ad the problem of both the buyers and sellers has been solved.
