Multilingual portal Webdunia has introduced its classified advertisement service in nine local languages. Apart from being totally free, the portal lets the user post a classified ad in a language of his choice, in his city, instantaneously. The registration for the classifieds has been kept simple. The portal gives users the option to post an advertisement and receive responses on the email, phone or by post. Webdunia users can edit the advertisement at any time.
Talking about Webdunia’s aspiration to become the country’s largest portal, Pankaj Jain, COO, Webdunia, said, “Webdunia continues to launch new initiatives to meet the emerging needs of netizens in Indian languages. This is first of the several special services to be offered this quarter. Our indigenous state-of-the-art technology and content is made available to customers like Yahoo and MSN.”
A Webdunia classified advertisement user gets an online dashboard to get quick reports on how many people have viewed the ad since it was posted or in the last 24 hours. The users get the option of searching ads from 500 cities in 30 Indian states so as to narrow down their hunt for property rentals, service rentals or automobiles within the city or even look for their life partner across the length and breadth of India.
Meanwhile, in a strategic tie-up, select classifieds from Webdunia would be published in the Hindi daily NaiDunia, and similarly, a few select classified ads from NaiDunia would be featured in Webdunia.
