Question Classified Ideas....

With the large ammount of traffic in the classifieds / growth / cost of the site I have came up with a idea which might appeal to some people who sell alot of animals in the classifieds and would like to see if anyone would be interested in something like this. Here are the ideas I have came up with.

1.) For a small monthly / Yearly fee you would be given your own forum within the classifed sections to sell your animals which only you could post in so your threads would never be lost.

2.) Again for a monthly / yearly fee, a thread which would be located when you click on classifieds where the categories, Snakes, Lizards, Etc are that would be pinned there with your Name and you could edit / update that thread with the availabilty / current stock...

If anyone would be interested in something like this, please PM me or respond to this thread...

3.) Allow the sponsored forums to be used to sales of animals aswell and just use those for your classifieds...

Thats all I have come up with

Well, to tell you the truth I have yet to date to sell anything off the ssnakess.com classifieds. All of my internet sales come from the other banned site. So, if the classifieds were to go to a pay/user format I'd definately have to rethink my advertising options.

Cory, I don't think he was saying you would have to pay to put up ads on the classifieds that are their now. Only, if you wanted your "own" classified boards to do as you wish with and post all your available animals there you would pay for a classified area with your name on it , or something along that line. Am I right?

Our classifieds will always be free... This is a option for people who dont want there posts to get lost for the ones who actually sell things here, re read the thread...

But to tell you the truth, you have been a member since the begining and have never supported so we didnt expect / care if you used this option anyways.

********, I have always said from Day One that you should be charging for classifieds. It weeds out the riff raff. But you're bent on keeping it free so I won't try and beat you over the head with it, LOL!

If the new option helps classifieds stand out, then I'd go for it man. I mean, the same dude(s) and dudettes keep posting the same damn ad to keep there's at the top every day/week. Its annoying. If there was an option to have other people's ads stand out from that kind of crap, that'd be great. I'm sure people would use it.

lol Jeff!! I just remember how frustrating it was when I was a member on other sites where you had to pay and I was trying to sell 1 snake and owned 2... There was no way i was going to pay over 100$ to sell 1 animal that was worth 150$ and never use it again, so for that reason the classifieds will always remain free I could also imagine how frustrating it can be selling stuff with 75 other ads there and only 15 on the first page, thats why im trying to figure a way for people who sell more stuff to keep it seperated from the chaos, and help with costs to boot...

I do hope the classifieds remain free. But, I like the personal forum idea. I would pay for that.

i think that this is a great idea..it would be very easy to see what some of the renowned breeders have available, without having to go to each individual site..You could always find the bigger breeders easily, and then just look through the regular classifieds for stuff from infrequent sellers.

It basically works like your own web site, you can post your info, who you are, what your expecting, stuff for sale, really the skys the limit with your own personal forum.
