For most of us, payday is happening this week, and man oh man, it couldn’t come any sooner. Cash-wise, January feels like the longest month of the year.
But here’s a pro-tip to avoid that mid-month cashless slump next time round.
Dig in your cupboards, your garage or your shed, and sell the stuff you’ve stopped using, online.
Stats from Gumtree show that people post the most listings near the end of the month. Interestingly, August is the highest month for online listings.
A report by Statista shows that ad spending in the Classifieds segment is projected to reach around R302 million in 2021 with an annual growth rate of 3.3%.
Marketers are interested in ad spend on classifieds because they know this section gets eyeballs, and it’s growing.
What does that mean for you? The things you list are also getting more and more views, increasing your chances of selling.
“Going through the stuff you never use might bring up some valuable surprises,” says Gumtree’s Estelle Nagel. “The most popular listing categories include laptops, cellphones, stereos and electronics – meaning these are in high demand and have a good resell value.”
So why not live like its payday, all month long?
From now until March 18, Gumtree is giving R10 000 to one lucky seller every week.. Each ad listing gets you an entry into the draw. Find out more.
