There are many different reasons why businesses decide to make classified ad job postings, whether it is online or in their local paper. Creating effective online classified ad postings are a thing of the present and can provide many benefits to you and your business.
advertising your rental online is a great way to find tenants. It offers benefits that other forms of marketing, such as print newspaper or bulletin boards, do not. Here are three benefits of posting an ad for your vacancy online.
1. Reach a Broader Prospective Tenant Pool With Minimal Effort
If you were trying to reach various markets, such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles when advertising your rental in the newspaper, you would have to individually place a ‘for rent’ ad in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune and the L.A. Times. If you wanted to expand your target market when advertising your rental with flyers, you would have to draft up a flyer, print out dozens of copies, then physically go to different grocery stores, gyms and community bulletin boards and put the flyers up yourself.
If you want to reach a lot of people online, you just have to put up one ad. People from all over the county, state, country and even world can easily find it by searching for apartments in the area. You save money by not having to place ads in various papers or from using paper and ink to print out flyers. You also save time from having to call various papers or drive from location to location to put up flyers.
2. Easily Accessible/Quicker Response Time
Your ad will be accessible 24 hours a day 7 days a week (assuming your ad will run for a week). Therefore, it can be accessed anytime day or night. An additional benefit is that people have access to the internet on the go from their mobile devices, so they can easily conduct a search during their lunch hour or while waiting in a line.
Unlike a bulletin board located inside of a grocery store or gym, which would only be viewed during normal business hours, the internet is always open for business. Unlike print newspaper advertising, most online sites, such as Craigslist, Trulia and Zillow, do not require users to pay to search for rentals.
Online advertising can help set the entire rental process into motion more quickly. If a prospective renter sees a vacancy that interests them, they can call, email or text immediately. You can send them an application instantaneously by fax or email so that you can start the application process before the tenant even physically views the unit.
3. Can Include Numerous Pictures and Even Multimedia Options
In a typical classified ad in the newspaper, you are usually limited to a couple of lines of text. If you are creating a flyer to advertise your rental, you are usually limited to two to four pictures, however the more pictures you include, the greater the cost as it will use more ink.
Online ads give you more options to visually present your property. Since people are visual, allowing them to physically see the features and amenities of your property is a bonus. It is common for sites to allow you to post anywhere from four to twenty pictures of your rental. In addition, if you have taken a video of your property, you can often include the link in your ad.
Of course, do not include pictures of features that will make your property look less desirable. For example, if your rental is a basement unit, don’t post a picture of the dungeon-like staircase leading down to the unit.
4.you can appeal to a much wider audience, get a bigger cross section of people from different backgrounds etc (needed if you want to be an equal opportunities employer), helps when you want to fill lots of vacancies fast.
5.Also gets the company name out there and helps with company profile. helps with any competition, if your advert is good etc.
