One of the guys in my office just showed this to me a couple of day ago.  It does exactly what I want it to do.  The market is slow right now for sellers.

Postlets is terrific.  They are so easy to use and look great. I did try Classified Flyer Ads but don't see the use in paying (only two are free) when Postlets are so quick.  I do have Classifief Flyer Ads call me button on my site.

Postlets is a good service for free but if your are looking for a lot more features and exposure then ClassifiedFlyerAds.com offers so much more for the small monthly fee that is charged.  Following is a quick comparison.  Please correct me if I missed anything.

Features Postlets ClassifiedFlyerAds.com

Over 80% of flyers reach page 1 of Google No Yes
Free Virtual Tours that include up to 20 photos No Yes
Free Slideshows with up to 15 photos No Yes
Click-To-Call buttons No Yes

Template Themes 10 80
Multi-Page No - only available on their plus which costs money Yes
External Links Yes Yes
Bulk upload listings No Yes
Mobile phone friendly flyers No Yes

So its a matter of choosing a good service that has a lot less features and provides a lot less exposure for free or choosing to pay a very small fee for a whole lot more features and exposure.

Thanks for sharing!  Has anyone had any success that paid off of postlets?  I read alot about leads but nothing about closings...  Don't get me wrong I love leads but just wandered if anything paid off when it came to those leads or were they mainly just lookie-lous?

Thanks again for sharing!

My client was hoping to use Postlets for renting or leasing a property but they didn't have an option for that!  Darn!

I use postlets and have generated a ton of leads. I have closed a number of those leads and my sellers are happy with the exposure that postlets gives to their property.

i discovered postlets myself a few days ago.  I like them because I can create a "Featured Listings" page by using the code they provide for the mini-postlets.

I, too, have been using Postlets for some time.  But I have never received a lead from it.  I like the look of the ads on Postlet and the price is right.  I have never heard of ClassifiedFlyerAds.com. I  just pulled up that website after reading the post from Misty.  That definitely looks worth trying.  Thanks to both Evaristo and Misty.

Postslets is a great resource for generating leads, especially when used with Craigslist and Backpage
