Moms Opts for Adbirds over Craigslist: Safe, Friendly, Fast & Green
By mommyq on May 11, 2010
It's hard to imagine the pre-Craigslist days. Can you even remember how you sold a slightly used bicycle or a stroller or a car? Nowadays you have some options when it comes to selling your old treasures online and if you haven't tried Adbirds yet, you need to give the site a test-drive.
Adbirds is similar to Craigslist, but I'd say it's more safe, sophisticated and mommy-friendly. Sure, if you sell on Craigslist, you get in front of a lot of eyes instantly, but sometimes it's too many. Let’s say I’m trying to sell a baby stroller. By the time I get my ad posted, 20 more stroller are already ahead of mine in less than 24 hours. I have to keep reposting if I want mine to stay above the fold. It's a little bit annoying.
Adbirds has a fast and easy interface, so you have the ability to create a pretty ad with images or video clips and then you can do other stuff, like promote your favorite charity. Seriously -- it's very community friendly. For moms who are involved in affiliate programs, you need to check out Adbirds. They have an extremely competitive program with various perks.
Adbirds is also eco-conscious as the company is all about local shopping, community and saving everyone gas. Think of it as more money in your pocket for diapers, formula and wipes! The company tagline is “Better Online Advertising” and they speak the truth.
Want a different perspective? I just saw another person blogging about shopping for bikes on Adbirds. You can read that blog post here. (Great info if you're a bike enthusiast!)
Drop me a comment if you’ve already discovered Adbirds and let me know what you think. I’m an instant fan and excited to learn more. Click here to post an ad and see for yourself!
