A lot of people have been asking me if we are expanding to different cities in the Philippines so that they can post non Cebu classified ads, good feedback was on the design, people like it simple. We recently rolled out a new feature last night, or that was early morning (im lacking sleep right now), which let us reach out to other major cities aside from Cebu.
As you can see on the header on top, it lets you choose which city you want to filter the classified ads, by default you can see all but if you want a particular location you can choose from the selection. Currently you can select from Antipolo, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Caloocan, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Manila, Pasig, Quezon, Zamboanga classified ads or you can select all cities.
When you create a new post, there is an additional required field for City, majority of posts are from Cebu because this is where it all started but now users can actually post ads from different cities.
It’s pretty exciting adding this feature and i hope more people will be participating more and posting their classified ads from different cities.
Even though the whole economy is in a state of recession, Cebu’s economy is continuing to progress in the field of Real Estate and the increasing number of OFW’s coming back to live in Cebu.
A lot of real estate developers are grabbing the opportunity to expand their developments in Cebu, this is a proof of numerous real estate developments that are growing in the city. Condominiums, House and Lots, Commercial spaces and etc are the most common you can see here.
In 2 years, there is an optimistic view of businessmen that developments in Cebu will reach at its peak thus benefits the residents and businesses alike.
At the same time, small to medium business owners are also investing in apartments and subdivisions in the tourism in Mactan which provided job opportunities to residents.
Condominiums have a potential industry here in Cebu, with increasing number of people switching to urban living where they can enjoy the comfort of having their homes near to their work.
Despite of the economic condition, real estate investments are growing in Cebu.
Since we’re on the developing process of the site, we just rolled out another tiny feature where you can add a city to your classified ads. This little thing will be helpful for us and for users as well in the future where we can filter posts based on a particular city. By default, its in Cebu and if you have ads that are located outside of Cebu, you can edit them and change it to a specific city.
Looking for a 2nd hand car? or maybe a brandnew one? Maybe your family is getting bigger and you need a bigger car or a van to go out on out of town trips or buy reward yourself and buy yourself a new car. One can also advertise their services for free, let’s say you have a vulcanizing shop and you want people to find your shop or a gasoline station or a auto repair shop. Advertising for free in Cebu is the best way to get your message across and direct to your viewers. One thing you can do is have a proper title for your ad, get it straight to the point. For car sellers, this is a perfect opportunity to also sell your used cars and parts and earn your commissions fast.
Car services benefit also from posting their ads online. Learn how to market your services to get more customers. Posting it online especially now that people are always connected there is a big chance that your ad will be seen by a lot of people.
We are currently on the process of developing new and helpful features for Buzzednow.com, one of which will be reaching out outside of Cebu and through the whole Philippines. Yes, Philippine classified ads! where working hard to make this happen and to make it simple for everyone to use. We see the need for other people to have their chance in promoting their businesses and help them progress more. This will be available soon.
We also have a couple of things at hand that we’re still trying to figure out small fixes for the site. Changes will be internal, to improve site loading times and performance, technical stuff.
