Encouraging more ads to be placed.. your thoughts..
I tend to believe that people are generally lazy when it comes to alot of things. Classifieds, while making it easy to post ads/photos, requires registering before that can happen (at least my site is setup like that). After surveying plenty of future potential customers/members, i've found that more than half said they would rather just be able to post ads without having to go through the registration system. Even after I explained to them that the registration system enabled us to keep their contact info private if they so chose, some still stated they would rather not have to register.
That being said, i'm wondering if classifieds is set up so that you can let unregistered members post ads and upload pics? My only concern would be having a mandatory contact information field (phone/email) that would have to be filled out. Without this info, the ad would obviously be useless.
Any thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance
