Easier classified posting using vFlyer

vFlyer wants to help people save time while creating and posting classifieds. vFlyer creates standardized, professional-looking classified ads and even will be able to post them on leading classified websites like eBay, Craigslist, LiveDeal, oodle. vFlyer is co-founded by Oliver Muoto, a serial entrepreneur, who previously co-founded Epicentric that was acquired by Vignette in 2002.

Getting down to the feature set, to start creating flyers using vFlyer you get to choose from number of categories like Real Estate, Vehicles, Services, Merchandise, Events, etc, to which you product belongs. For each category vFlyer has comprehensive set of customized fields that are to be filled out by the user. You can choose from number of templates for the flyer, add photos, add links to your website or auctions, set expiry date. Once you fill out the information the flyer can be saved as draft or published. vFlyer maintains a list of all flyers created by you so that can edited, published/unpublished, and deleted easily.

While publishing you also have the option to automatically publish the flyer to GoogleBase, Edgeio, and Oodle(i think this option is still under development). vFlyer provides browser buttons for easily posting the flyer on Craigslist. vFlyer provides HTML code that can be used to post the flyer on other websites. You also have option to download the flyer in PDF. vFlyer can also be emailed(flyer or PDF or link) to your contacts, which can be imported, from AOL, Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, Plaxo, and Hotmail.

One interesting feature of the vFlyer is that you get Activity Reports for your flyers. Information provided includes Flyer Views, Total Page Views(Flyer Views + Slide Show + Gallery), Flyer Views by Source(Unique visitors to the flyer either hosted on vFlyer or partner sites), number of page views grouped by referring site, and Contact request count for the flyer.

All these services are for free from vFlyer. So where do they get funds for operations? I think vFlyer initially wants to play as an flyer creating and hosting service. When and if the number of classified being created from vFlyer reach a significant amount vFlyer will hook up its own classified publishing interface. All these are my thoughts. Maybe they just want to give out something for free. Overall a nice free tool to manage your life.

    […] vFlyer, about which I had written last month, launched officially today. Since writing about it, I had a talk with vFlyer founders Aaron Sperling and Oliver Muoto. Their plan for vFlyer is to address cumbersome process of creating and posting of classifieds, which has not been really addressed till now.   As far as monetizing from the size, vFlyer will be having advertisements on secondary pages like contact reply form. These ads will be complimentary to the classified, like having carfax ad on a ‘BMW for sale’ classified. […]
