RiotACT welcomes a new sponsor – AllClassifieds

RiotACT relies on the generosity of its sponsors.

Without their support this weird and sometimes wonderful place would collapse under its own weight.

So it’s with considerable pleasure that we present to you our latest sponsor allclassifieds.com.au.

The Canberra based All Classifieds is an online marketplace for people looking to buy, or looking to sell, pretty much anything. Much like RiotACT the overwhelming majority of their traffic comes from Canberra

Established in 2002, allclassifieds.com.au receives more than 160,000 views every day. Placing classifieds is free, with many users opting to pay an additional charge of $15 to include a photograph with their listing (as a Christmas special All Classifieds are now actually giving the first photo for free until the end of December). It’s easy to post a listing, and users can update them.

Allclassifieds users are looking to buy and generally have high disposable incomes.

To date more than 52,842 items have been listed and sold.

Nothing wrong with the chief gonzo justifying his existence.

Boo to Allhomes for now charging for finding a flatmate!

I got my fridge through allclassifieds a few years back. It’s a good service, much better than the ones in the paper, and smart sellers put pictures up too.

I have nothing but nice things to say about All Classifieds. I found my two magnificent babysitters there who have made my returning to work so much easier than it might have otherwise been.

I got an excellent Hills swing set for the kids Christmas present a few years ago on All Classifieds. If anyone is short of cash and needs to shop I recommend it.

Allclassies are brilliant.

I’ve sold a couple of things via AllClassies in recent months. Reckon I’ll give the free photo offer to try and offload a few more now!

I’m sure. So this story is paid advertising?

RiotACT has often bagged out the likes of City News for their “advertorial” policies…now they’ve joined them. Just making that point.

Ahh, they ARE a business though. They kinda have to make money to operate! How much is the charge BTW?
——————-
I also believe they have or had free posting of photos for this week or last or something. Good deal me thinks.

Still take my hat off to AllClassifieds for my 80 roof tiles for $30! Gold!

I think it was pretty obvious that the article was from a paying customer, what with the title and all….

I haven’t use allclassified, but my experience with allhomes has been good, and I assume they are connected somehow…

Far be it from me to stick up for johnboy, but I reckon there’s a difference between an advertiser providing copy and it being presented as genuine editorial and an editor openly announcing a new sponsorship/advertising arrangement, with a few facts and figures thrown in.

Yes. Same ownership, admin team.

Fair point Holden Caulfield…I’ll get back in my box.

allhomes and allclassifieds are actually rather well-designed sites. They’re good and simple to navigate, they work well. I’m often struck by it.

Go to a RE Agency site after using allhomes, there’s no contest, most of them are shockers. It certainly deserves to be where it is in teh market. I appreciate well-done things.

I think they’ve set up a jobs site in tandem, too.

Bought my home through allhomes and sold my old washing machine through allclassifieds, with no problems in either instance. I for one welcome our new advertising overlords.

“Allclassifieds users …………….. generally have high disposable incomes.”
