This USFreeads review is for those who do not yet know the power of using USFreeads. USFreeads is a service that allows users to post ads. This is an excellent way to get new customers on your site. Google seems to love USFreeads, which means it can be a great traffic producer.
You can get either a free or a paid account to USFreeads. As you might expect, the features are better with the paid account, but the free account is good, too.
There are three different memberships: free, gold, and premium. Here is a table listing the differences between these three memberships:
I have used USFreeads since 2007 and highly recommend them. I get quite a bit of traffic from them, which does convert into sales. The key is to do keyword research before creating an ad. If you simply throw an ad up, with no thought to keywords, then you probably won’t get much traffic.
Additionally, I suggest using one of their paid memberships. I tried the free membership before I upgraded to a paid one, and the difference in traffic was considerable.
One feature that I especially like is the ability to “auto renew” ads. Ads run for a period of time, then expire. The “auto renew” feature allows me to determine which ads I want to renew automatically, so they never expire. This means I don’t have to log in to my account each month and look for expired ads that I want to continue running.
Creating ads is simple. If you know HTML, then you can create an ad offline, with a program such as Dreamweaver, and copy/paste the code into your ad. For those who do not know HTML, you can create ads on USFreeads very easily. Ads can be previewed before completion, so you will know right away if anything needs to be tweaked.
If you are an affiliate marketer, then you should seriously consider opening an account with USFreeads. They actually allow you to include affiliate links in your ads. Many advertising sites do not allow the promotion of affiliate links, so this is a huge advantage when using USFreeads.
If you ever need to contact the people at USFreeads, then you may find yourself cursing their website. Figuring out how to contact anyone at that site is challenging, at best. The links are hidden deep within the site. You can visit it at http://www.usfreeads.com/modules/info/contact.asp, with additional contact information available at http://www.usfreeads.com/modules/info/contact2.asp. I have contacted them before and they responded right away. My experience regarding contacting them was positive. They were very receptive to my inquiry.
