EVERYONE!! That's who!! Unfortunately, with the downturn of the US economy, more and more people have consistently been turning to online classifieds to fill their pockets with extra cash. According to "AIM", a classified AD consultancy group formerly known as "Advanced Interactive Media", Craigslist will generate an estimated $122 million in revenue this year with profits of $88 to $99 million. Craigslist is the dominating factor in the online classifieds game, while eBay Motors still dominates the Auto Classifieds category.

Let's face the facts for a second. It being 2010, there are two websites that should ring a bell in all our heads; VFlyer and Postlets. If you are one of the few out of the loop, these companies enable online sellers and sales professionals (realtors, auto dealers, i.e.) to distribute their product or service listings to online marketplaces. However, there is one "new kid on the block" that goes by the name of PrettyPosts

PrettyPosts is compatible with Craigslist, eBay, and Backpage. They also offer you the opportunity to publish directly to your facebook and twitter account. PrettyPosts offers a Free "Basic" Package that appoints you three different layouts, three slots to save your posts under, 50 MB of space for your uploaded images, as well as stats on all your posts. Sound good so far? Well it gets better. Their "Premium" package is almost too good to be true. With the "Premium" package you receive access to the increasing number of layouts PrettyPosts offers on their site, unlimited slots to save all your individual posts, 500 MB of space for your uploaded images, and extra stats including Keyword Searches, Map Overlay, View Count, and Traffic Sources. The icing on this delicious strawberry sundae is that the entirety of the "Premium" package comes at only five measly bucks a month.
 
Here's an example of an auto layout PrettyPosts offers:
 
Whether its one listing, five, or twenty, in the jungle of online classifieds there must be something that makes an ad stand out more than the last. In the words of PrettyPosts, They are "putting the class back into classifieds." Check out PrettyPosts and see if you don't find yourself calling that friend to express your new fascination with the "new kid on the block".
