In this tough economy, many are struggling and seeking out alternative ways to make money online. One of the easiest ways to do so is to post ads on free classified ad sites like backpage and craigslist. For many who are new to the online world, they may think, "Is this a scam? Can I really make money just by placing free ads?"

The answer is a resounding yes, you can. I know, I've been doing it since 2009. Following are some frequently asked questions about how to make money online using this form of free advertising.

What do I need to do? A broad question, but a frequent one I receive. The answer is simple. The first thing you need to do is select a product to promote. As information is the best-selling product online, I advise newbies (new internet marketers) to go to Clickbank and choose a product.

While many knock this site for having a lot of low-quality products, I liken it to thrift store shopping. You have to dig through a lot of junk to find some gems. And, there are plenty of good products on Clickbank you can promote and start making money with just by placing free classified ads.

How do I get people to buy? It all starts with writing a good ad. If you know nothing about internet marketing and how to write ad copy, think about it this way -- when you see an article online or in a newspaper, what makes you want to click through / read it?

Usually, it's the headline, right? So, when placing free classified ads online to make money -- write an enticing headline.

"But," you may be thinking, "how do I do that." Simple again. Go to sites like Craigslist and backpage and look in the "Business Opportunities" section. Browse through the ads. As yourself which ones make you want to click. Why? What about the ad appeals to you?

How many ads do I need to place to make sales? This is very subject and depends on a lot of factors , ie, product you select to promote (the most important factors), ads you write, competition, time of day you place ads, etc.

When I first started out, I placed between 50-150 per day. I averaged 2-5 sales a day. One day, I made 18 sales and raked in $900 promoting an affiliate product! But, this is not typical -- I just want to make you aware of that.

Do I need to buy software to place ads? If you're considering this way of making money online, you may have heard about popular classified ad posting software, eg, backpage auto poster software. And no, you don't need this to start making money placing free ads. In fact, I always advise newbies to do everything manually to get their feet wet first.

How to post ads Tip for Newbies: Do it manually. You can easily place 50-60 ads by hand in an hour. The bottom line is, don't spend any more money than you have to when you first start your classifieds ads business.

It is, however, pretty easy to . It's not a scam; it's a legitimate way to make money online.

And the best part -- it doesn't cost anything. It's free to select products from sites like Clickbank to promote; and of course, it's free to place ads (in most categories in most cities) on classified ad sites.

Make Money Placing Free Classified Ads: "I'm not making any sales, I knew this was a scam!"

Trial and error; that's what it takes to make money with free ad advertising. If one product you're not promoting is not converting (eg, selling); try another and another -- until you find one that does work. Clickbank has over 10,000 digital products you can select from. And, there are millions of product creators out there who have affiliate programs. It takes some digging, but there's no shortage of products to promote online.
