Hey guys, my name is Adrian and I’m full time WEB developer and owner of 2 web design and web development companies. I work with WordPress since 2009 and I bought more than 400 themes from more than 80 different theme developers.
I am trying to write really helpful WordPress reviews from my perspective and from my experience because some newbies can’t really tell the difference between good and bad theme and it’s too late once you buy it you cant ask for refund. That’s why I want to write short but helpful reviews, and I want to introduce myself for your to realise that this is not some generic online review but real person and real life review.
Starting Classified Website with WordPress
WordPress is ultimate website CMS that you can use for every website niche, and Classified sites are really complicated to run because you have tons of ads, tons of users, you have to approve ads, delete ads, organize banner ads, featured listings… and that’s why you need WordPress so you can manage your site trough simple CMS interface.
Classified sites are profitable, popular and easy to start with, you just need hosting, you can click here to check FastComet WordPress hosting at $50 per year, it’s really cheap and it’s really powerful.
There are tons of ways to make money from Classified sites, you can sell Banner ad space, you can charge for Featured ads, you can put Adsense or Amazon ads on your site, you can flip it once you star getting traffic flow…
Simple, Effective and Cheap WordPress Classified Theme
I like simple themes, but not too simple, and not too minimalistic, and Trade is perfect theme for niche classified ad website. If you are starting some huge classified site this theme is not for you, this is small, simple theme for some local classified site. This theme is really worth it, you can find it for $59 on Themeforest, and you get theme with unlimited color options, full documentation, full demo content, Trade is translation ready and WPML compatible.
What I really like about this theme:
– It has Map overview and really great search options and that’s the main thing when it comes to classified ads site
– You can integrate Paypal so you can charge for featured ads
– Great Banner positions in header, sidebars and many others, so you can make really nice money from Adsense and Amazon ads
– Trade theme is simple, light and easy to use on both computers, laptops and mobile phones
What I don’t really like about this theme:
– Trade is maybe too simple for my taste for most classified niches, for example you cant use it as Real estate site, as Car classified..
– It doesn’t have Private messaging system, you have to send emails if you want to contact users
That’s it from me, I hope this short overview helped you in your WordPress theme choice for your website. If you have any questions, inquires or you need any help, feel free to contact me.
