I was recently contacted by a representative of OLX asking if I was interested in making a post abouttheir website. Normally I would would make a face at this type of marketing but first off, I don't really think enough people read this blog to consider it an imposition, two, I was curious about the site, and three, I was somewhat flattered they thought I was worth contacting.
So first things first, if you haven't heard of OLX its a free classifieds website and they're looking to improve on the model craigslist established. They allow videos, high resolution pictures, and include several "web 2.0" features.
I haven't used the site enough to form a strong opinion but I will admit that I am happy to see the better quality images. The only downside I saw was the expected spam left in the comments of some listings.
When it comes right down to it if you're looking to buy or sell something it never hurts to have another site to use. I didn't have too much luck finding things in my area but since its free to post I'd still use it as sales channel if the need ever arose.
