Classifieds for every website
Zenlist is based on a simple idea: Let visitors to any website connect and transact via classified ads.
In the process, we're making online classifieds more social and giving website publishers a new way to generate revenue. Think "Craigslist meets Google ads".
An Embeddable Classifieds System
To this end, we've created the first embeddable classified listings system that also includes a managed content network. Examples →
If you are the publisher of a website or blog, the Zenlist Publisher web application gives you the ability to:
- Add Zenlistings™ in a "Banner Block" widget or as a stand-alone website section;
- Display Zenlistings relevant to your website's content;
- Customize the look-and-feel of your embedded Zenlistings;
- Let your users browse and reply to Zenlistings, and post their own;
- Ensure a high level of automatic and crowd-sourced spam/fraud filtering;
- Make money when your users buy featured listing upgrades.
Zenlist offers a social, real-time service that empowers web publishers, large or small, to better engage users and monetize content. Zenlist Publisher is simple to use and it takes just a few minutes to get started running Zenlistings on your site.
If you're already running banners or Google ads on your website, you already have a place for Zenlistings. Our Banner Blocks are formatted to match IAB-standard ad unit sizes, so you can display relevant classified listings alongside other display ad placements. This way, Zenlist won't change your site's user experience and you can easily compare the results of our highly engaging social classifieds to more traditional display advertising. Examples →
Stand-alone Section Layouts
If you prefer to provide your users with a stand-alone classified ads section, we provide a variety of highly customizable options for both wide and narrow page/column integrations. Examples →
For high-traffic websites, content management systems, and media networks, we offer an API that allows developers to create full-featured classified listing applications using our backend services and content database. Documentation for the API can be found here.
How much does it cost?
Zenlist is 100% free for website publishers.
In fact, you can generate additional revenue by running Zenlistings on your website. Here are some of the benefits:
- Earn money every time one of your users buys a featured Zenlisting;
- Boost your banner ad inventory by adding Zenlisting content;
- Increase traffic with search-engine-friendly Zenlisting content (your results will vary);
- Increase user engagement with a new real-time, social service.
