CDN Launches Online Classified Section

The Clarke Daily News has undergone some big changes lately. Readership is up and we have redesigned the site to allow more information on the front page. We’re still taking care of some housekeeping issues and there are more additions to come, but we wanted to take this opportunity to announce the addition of our online classified section. The new section allows any reader to set up a free account in the classified system. Once you have set up your account you can start posting ads to the system. Our ads are affordable and range from free ads for giveaway items, to $25 dollars for business listings. Ads run for thirty days and the system will automatically notify users before ads expire. Payment is fast and easy via credit card or PayPal.

Our hope is that the classifieds will be a natural extension of the Clarke Daily News and offer residents of Clarke County and the surrounding areas an easy way to buy and sell locally. The Clarke Daily News already reaches 38 thousand readers a month so no other classified option offers more exposure.

To celebrate the launch we are offering free ads through April 15th. Simply set up an account and use the following coupon code during checkout and your ad will be listed for 30 days absolutely free. So, try out the new classifieds and let us know what you think.

  1. You all are doing good work! Keep it up!

    CDN Editor: Clarke County is a great place with a very supportive community. Having the privilege of delivering the “home town news” is a special kind of honor. In a way, establishing the CDN “brand” has been a lot of work not only for our staff but for our community as well. Getting used to an electronic “newspaper” hasn’t been easy for everyone (the Clarke Couriers’s four weekly pages were just about perfect for a quick Wednesday afternoon read.) We’ve pressed the “freedom of speech” idea as well, and admittedly, it has be painful at times. (Who would have ever thought that a story on “cup stacking” would have generated 60+ comments while readers remain mute regarding county budget stories?!) Interestingly, you – our readers – really do a lot of the writing for CDN through your thoughtful comments. Many people have told me that they read CDN just to see reader comments. While my editorial ego may be bruised a bit every now and then knowing that my stories aren’t on everyone’s “must read” list each morning, I’m equally pleased to read what my neighbors are saying on topics ranging from Clarke County High School, to the weekly police reports to county politics. So thanks for your compliment Sarge, we’re doing the best that we can to weave a “social network” here in Clarke County. But at the same time give yourself a pat on the back because our readers are doing a great job too! – Ed Leonard, Publisher
