What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
The classifieds business is not the most complicated business in the world. Someone wants to sell something that he owns, to someone else. This might be a physical product, but can be a service too. Also, companies that need to hire staff can use a classifieds website. It is an exchange of something. So I decided to build free online classifieds to provide a platform that is free, simple, and safe that connects those with others in their community.

This approach helps us saving our users their valuable time.
