Previously I had been a successful import/export and manufacturing entrepreneur for the last 12 years.
A couple of years ago I sold my old business, sold all our manufacturing equipment, leased out my 10,000 sq. foot warehouse and devoted my new full time career to marketing on the internet. ( Hmmm... that sounded way too easy )
It was a major change in my life, and a new path that is now proving to be more profitable and rewarding than all of my previous careers.
When I first started out, all I wanted from the internet was to use the free resources that were so readily available. Who doesn't love the word "free"? I sure did. I did everything I could for free. I tried bulk email, newsgroup postings, newsletters, free for all links, list servers, etc.
Then I came across something I'd never seen before - free classified ads!
Wait a minute... classified ads? Ya mean those little ads you see in the back of all the newspapers ? Who reads them anyway?
We'll... I tried everything else... why not try an online classified ad. So I did, I placed a few ads and received a few inquiries. I then placed some more and received even more inquiries. Before I knew it... I was placing dozens of free classified ads - all over the internet - for free!
The inquiries and sales started rolling in. Wow... this works!
This was not only the inception of a steady stream of leads, but a new business venture!
I decided to build an extensive "members only" web site, which focused on utilizing this little known technique. I thought to myself - why not teach others this successful marketing medium, and make a profit to boot!
To make a long story short, I now spend my time keeping this site up to date, current, and full of practical "know how". My small office staff and I are continually researching, locating, and hyperlinking all the free and low cost classified ad sites we can - so you don't have to.
In June '98 we decided to implement a resellers program. So others who liked what we were doing, could start earning some extra cash too.
All in all it's been a wonderful experience. The ability to make money, enjoy what I'm doing, teach people a thing or two, and best of all - share the wealth!
For you die-hard skeptics out there, and I know you're out there, we've registered ourselves with the Better Business Bureau. They promised us five months ago they would update our business listing on their site. Five months after they took our money - We're still waiting... so much for the BBB.
We realize "trust" on the internet is probably the single most important issue any new customer faces before making a purchase online. After all, most of us have all had our share of empty promises and slick talking TV salespeople who ship us a product that simply breaks within 10 minutes of opening the darn box.
So before we go any further, you must understand that I back our site with a 100% money back guarantee. Why do we do this ? Am I crazy ? Why would I let someone into my members only site, let them access all of my tools and resources, then give them their money back ?
It's simple... trust.
I believe that if you join my site, examine all of the features, lists, and resources that have taken me years to compile... you WILL BE satisfied.
You know what ? If you're not... that's OK. I'll be more than happy to return every penny of your hard earned dollar.

I'm always asked "Why Should I advertise in Free Classifieds?", so posted an article on this here. It's interesting reading...
