A free advertising space catering for the local needs of the Irish.
Online PR News – 02-December-2009 – – Since its launch in 2006, Eireads.com has provided a free online space for Irish people to place free local ads, effectively. In the current economic climate more than ever, individuals and companies require a reliable platform where to advertise their deals cost-effectively. From electronic equipment, to furniture, pets or even the latest car deal, the second hand market is open for buying, selling and even swapping items.
The founders recognised the strong need in Ireland for a reliable local buy and sell directory which could really become a point of reference for people looking to advertise their latest deal. While Ireland’s adoption of ecommerce is remarkable, there is a major gap in the market for a solution in terms of local deals. Not every individual is Ebay savvy and many people prefer to settle a deal personally in order to avoid payment and transport constraints.
According to CTO and spokesperson Alex Leibowitz, Eireads.com is going through a major website revamp which will enable people in Ireland to advertise personal and business needs online even more effectively. In his words “We have gained a substantial amount of traffic over the years and are delighted with the amount of repeat visits. Based on the user’s feedback we are now concentrating on improving the functionalities for both free and premium advertisers to ensure the best possible user experience”.
At Eireads.com people can post free adverts which specifically target their county or region, during a maximum of 6 months. The users can also avail of premium listings at very affordable rates. The team personally review each ad, regardless of it being free or paid, to ensure it is well categorised and most importantly, spam free.
