I've just posted 10 same ads in 10 different city about 3 to 4 hrs south from here. I seem to get lots of customers that have cottages from around here.

I want to try this out. I may do the same on craigslist since it's free.

I wish it would let me post HTML code otherwise i would just put my photobucket picture of my postcard.

Anyways, here's my ad for Kijiji

Let me know what you guys think

Justin, I took a screen shot of it for you.

I love the idea.

Just so I understand better. You posted these ads in cities 3 to 4 hours away because a lot of those people have cottages in your area?

Also I noticed you have a button on there to talk to you via internet phone. That is very creative. Have you had anyone use that yet?

Yeah, I currently have people that drive between 3 to 5 hrs away to get to their cottage, I have one guy from the States.

That talk button for skype is intergrated with Kijiji, just have to put your id and it automatically creates a button for that...

Justin,

What do the numbers on the stats page signify? The number of viewers of the ad?
