Membership or Pay per Ad?
Popular Classified Sites like Quickr and OLX operate on Freemium model. They offer their basic services for free, if some seller wants to get more coverage – he can opt for their premium services.
Free classified website normally has thousands of (free) pages and all these pages are platforms for advertisement. Majority of the revenue of free classified websites comes from the ads being displayed on the page.When someone visits the page of these free classified websites, ads displayed by different publishers (like Google Ad Sense, Info Links) are clicked or viewed by the visitors. Thus free classified website makes money.
Worth mentioning about Classifieds is that they can be smoothly presented on empty searches, so as not to display empty searches – instead of just having it has related content. Quickr earns through advertising on website. A majority of them depend on the advertising revenue like Google Ad Sense.
Earn with Advertising Banners
To improve your SEO and get money at the same time consider using advertising banners. Advertisers usually take good care of content; they tend to write unique product descriptions. Also, classifieds websites are attractive to advertisers. Targeting a specific group of people interests sellers. Finally, having new ads appearing regularly would keep your page look fresh and up to date. There are many tools with which you could include ads in your website.
Earn with Featured Ads
Give your advertisers a way to stand out of the other ads on your website by offering featured ads. Featured ads draw more attention and will have a higher click through rate, so more visitors will take a look at it. Use featured sliders on the homepage or category pages of your classified ad website.
Pro accounts can both offer extra features for the buyer and sellers, but paid by the user. The most common business model is a membership subscription where visitors can post an unlimited amount of ads based on a monthly fee. This is interesting because you are generating a recurring stream of income.
Some simple ideas I found for premium memberships offered features:
– Give some featured/move to top ads
– Give a credit for posting in pay-to-post categories
– Simply be able to post in your website
– Monthly/yearly subscriptions
– Discounts on any feature

2. Work with e-commerce company as affiliate like amazon
3. Apply as publisher for generating revenue like Ad sense
4. Selling the service on site like domain hosting etc
