Online classifieds are a marketing powerhouse, in which individuals can offer things they own for sale, promote their services to individuals or request help or even friendship. Craigs List is no doubt the most popular online classifieds site, but increasing individuals are migrating away from such colossal global sites toward local classifieds in order to narrow the field to the most relevant results. Barbados List is a new website created to provide Barbados classifieds service purely for the island, and has created an easy to use, familiar infrastructure to enable islanders to help one another out.
The new website features a great many classifieds categories and sub categories, including for sale, vehicles, real estate, services, and even community and personals. The classifieds allows individuals to reach out to the whole island at once, and offer products or services for sale.
The site is brand new, and is leveraging the evolving power of the internet to actually improve local communities after its great success in connecting individuals globally. Whether islanders need a baby sitter or a guitar, the site enables them to find both in Barbados from a single online location. Despite the fact the site is in its infancy it has already gathered a lot of attention from the local community with feedback praising its intuitiveness and its Barbados specific listings.
A spokesperson for Barbados List explained, “There is a Craigs List for the Carribbean, but it is updated infrequently and owing to the island based nature of the region, is often unhelpful for individuals looking for local help or assistance, or those looking to sell second hand items to those who could use them. By creating a classifieds list just for Barbados, we hope to be able to knit the community more closely together through the power of the internet, and look forward to seeing what amazing items, services and other posts people make using our easy and intuitive framework.”
