Dubai, United Arab Emirates (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- Obaid Saleem of AllinDubai.com states âAllinDubai is the fastest-growing 100% free classified advertising sites in Dubai. It is a project that we have setup to give something back to Dubai and its residents. We intend to keep it free for the community and strongly believe that online classifieds should not cost a dime for the contributorsâ
When asked about the business model, Obaid responded âOur goal is to ensure we can get individual and businesses of a given community to get acquainted with each other and make the most of the collective resources of the community. For instance, an individual seeking to buy a new car may find a seller two blocks away if a classifieds website could filter ads based on location â this is exactly what AllinDubai is all about. AllinDubai supports the needs of the community but allowing community members to get acquainted with each other and work collectively to improve their communities.â
âAllinDubai intends to generate revenue by means of targeted ads from third-parties which will ensure our operational expenses are met. In the long-term, we intend to attract sponsors and perhaps get sections of the website sponsored by interested brands to generate revenue.â
Interestingly, the website does not require any registration for posting advertisements. All that is required is selecting the area to post in followed by the category and selecting âPost Adâ. It couldnât be any simpler than this.
Furthermore, there is no limit on the number of advertisements that can be posted and all ads are set to be active on the website for a minimum of 100 days. The duration of the ad displayed on the site can be extended further by simply clicking on a friendly reminder link sent by the website to the email address of the poster when the ad nears expiration.
The major categories of classifieds given on the website are jobs, community, for sale, lost & found, housing, items wanted and services which are further divided in to more granular categories.
With a novel goal, AllinDubai is already gaining the attention of the community and is being touted as Dubaiâs first community classifieds. We asked Obaid what the future holds for the website and here is what he responded: âWe intend to introduce more community-oriented projects that will complement AllinDubai and will probably integrate the functionality to provider greater value to the community.â
