Classified adverts booming online

I tweeted this item several days ago (see the Iwanna Twitter feed at right), but now that the BBC has picked up the story I thought I would devote a little more time to it.

Classified advertising is booming in the down economy.

It’s worth noting that Iwanna.com has up to three times as many listings online every week as Craigslist in Asheville. At the Home Show recently, we heard someone jokingly describe Iwanna as “the second Bible for rednecks.” The print publication is certainly thick enough to be considered Bible-sized! But we get as many searches for “Mercedes” as we do for “chickens,” so our audience cuts across many lines of interest.
