Editors' Review

+
For U.S.-focused advertisers, at least, The Classified Connection makes it a bit easier to submit listings to several Web sites at once. The program setup is slightly laborious, requiring you to complete two detailed forms, one on installation and one on launch, which are annoyingly duplicative. After you've muddled your way through that process, however, you enter your ad, which can be up to 150 words. Then The Classified Connection opens its list and starts sending your ad to various classifieds sites. It will take time to measure a difference in your response rate, but this program does its job. The submission targets, however, are heavily weighted toward American sites, which will limit the program's value to international users. Those whose small businesses require ongoing classified listings stateside are likely to find The Classified Connection a real time-saver.

"Great Program and Support Team"

August 30, 2009  |  By software_man09

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Pros

1. You can submit multiple ads within minutes without repeatedly typing the ads over and over.
2. Great support team and help with in-depth help videos.
3. Very easy to understand once you learn how the program operates.
4. You can add new sites.

Cons

1. Some submissions are semi-automated because of the capthca codes.
2. Could use a better designed program interface.

Summary

I have had this program for a while and have had nothing but an excellent experience with the program and the technical support team. When I first purchased I had some issues with freezing also. I called the company directly because their phone number is clearly posted on the website and sent email requests. Someone answered every call and email. They helped me to figure out why the system was freezing, btw, the reason was listed in the help. I love the program and I am having good results. I think everyone should take a look for themselves. Remarkable program!!!

"Did not reply emails on Technical & REFUND request!"

June 01, 2009  |  By irrena

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Pros

Everything looks like automated

Cons

The team is irresponsible and never assist the PC based user that is technically challenged, thus unprofessional from all aspect as you will be ignored completely after you paid.

Summary

1. Technical Department did not reply email on help requested and finally 1 email was replied after 1 week; with responses that it was caught in SPAM

2. Once you have paid, you are on your own irrespective if the program is working properly or not

3. On their website, it clearly said 'take this trial and FULL REFUND if unsatisfied within 60 days'. For the starter, they ask me WHY and never response to me again irrespective how many emails i reminded them i am awaiting their responses.
Conclusion, I was ignored and i never heard from them again and of course, they ignored the refund request completely. Note: i only managed to use for 5 days

Try calling to the service centre, they will tell you maybe a partial refund can be processes.

"It is a Scam"

April 17, 2009  |  By kathy2001

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Pros

You get a few minutes of hope and excitement from something that is promised and never delivered.

Cons

You get ripped off. It submits to one site. You will see no change in traffic, because it doesn't do anything. NO MONEY BACK EITHER. I asked repeatedly and ignored.

Summary

DO NOT GET IT UNLESS YOU enjoy flushing your money down the toilet.

"The Best Classified Submitter on the Market"

August 31, 2008  |  By robwbls

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Pros

Ease of Submission. The system is pretty easy to setup. It has a wizard to get you started immediately. Submitting is virtually effortless.

Cons

Because of the technology of new classified sites adding your own sites takes a bit of undrstanding, but once done it is worth it.

Summary

The Classified Connection is a lifesaver if you do not want to keep typing in classified advertisements over and over. I wanted a program that could post my ads over and over and save me time. I understand that I had to do my due diligence and work hard at it. The program is not a cure all for online advertising but for the cost you cannot beat it. What takes me hours to do manually takes just minutes with the program. I had to have my computer up-to-date and I did have to read the help and watch the videos to understand everything, but it was worth the time and effort. The software seems to e very advanced in what it does. I have talked with the company on many occasions and if they were not there when I called, they always called me back and the help I was given was right on point. If a person is willing to put the work in the program is great. This is the best-classified submission program on the market and I recommended it to all my friends. I simply love it!

"Overpriced False Advertising"

August 20, 2008  |  By arnold2001

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Pros

Don't like it at all. Promises everything delivers nothing.

Cons

It submits to one publisher only. No money back. Tons of bugs. I asked for a refund and I stated the grounds for it. I got excuses. They admit there is no database, but that I can build my own. They say the program works perfectly on their computers. Hard to use. Terrible documentation. I am willing to do a class action on the grounds that it violated California law, if I find someone else in California I will do a class action lawsuit.

"Don't waste your time or money on this program"

March 18, 2008  |  By dmc114477

 |  Version: The Classified Connection 2.0.8

Cons

I've had this program for 9 months and I've had nothing but problems with it. It has frozen up my computer, it has timed-out many times, the software freezes up as well while submitting ads, it takes a long time to load, and Technical support is really bad about contact you back after have submitting a support ticket. Sometimes they will not contact you back. If you call them most of the time they will not answer the phone. For a $149.00 for the program does not justify the return you'll get in gaining quailty customers on your website! In most cases classified ads only attracts browsers not buyers!
